2I Want It That Way - Backstreet Boys

90's classic pop song. One of the best pop ballads from the backstreet boys. Ranked at #10 by Rolling Stones/MTV in 100 greatest pop songs. A must listen pop song. My fave pop group. It is a definitive pop song of the 90's.

This is truly the best pop song EVERYBODY knows and sings this song. Black white. Hispanic. African. Indian Italian doesn't matter what you are where you come from everybody knows this song and that makes it one of the greatest if not the greatest pop song ever... So awesome and so catchy.. You are my fire the one desire believe when I say I want it that way

I love that song. When I was a kid my mom played this song when she was depressed witch was all the time. But you know now I never hear that song but I still love it.

Brilliant song! Fabulous! perfect melody, harmonies, orchestration, just one of those great songs that leaves you immensely satisfied every time you hear it.

3Billie Jean - Michael Jackson

I listen to all genre of music, pop, rock, nu metal, death metal, melodic death metal, rap but this song out of all is my personal favourite, for me this song is the best, no Metallica, Pink Floyd, Linkin Park, slipknot, death, children of bodom, Black Sabbath, iron maiden, Eminem can make me going as much as this one

Just my personal opinion though, even Michael's own songs doesn't come close to this one, with his dance this song is pure epic

Billie jean is number one! The best! This is symbol of pop.

This is the BEST pop song! It reached #1 on EVERY Top 10 chart IN THE WORLD eventually!

Number 1 pop song

4Bad - Michael Jackson

This is sexiest Michael album of all time. Love you Michael!

Bad is Just awesome...!

This song is almost great to me, but not quite. I just feel like the hooks of this song sound a little bit forced together and the chorus, while it is almost catchy, doesn't really go anywhere except to repeat itself until it's time to go back to a verse. This may be pop music blasphemy, but from this era, Prince is so much better than Michael Jackson, at least to me. Raspberry Beret is so much better than this song.

I <3 Bad, just got 1 question... Who's bad? Lol

5Poker Face - Lady Gaga

I go to almost all your concerts and poker face is my favorite nothing can top it you are A great singer I don't know what I'd be listening to without poker face it's like so cool I never heard a song like it and I sing at school at home with my friends in my room in the car on my phone no time to sto sing at school at home with my friends in my room in the car on my phone no time to stop if my friends don't like it I might cry love poker face best song ever

So great never listen to any song listen to it all the time I wish I was the song I if I feel bad I listen to poker face when I'm bored with my friends we listen to poker face when I'm driving in my car I listen to poker face when getting ready to go to sleep I listen to poker face what would I listen to that's not better I love it it's so great when I hear on the radio I turn it up all the way don't think I'll ever change it out of my number one love it

The song just super, which should fall into the top 5. Because it sounds just fine and easily, well done Lady Gaga... By the way is my favorite song!

Lots of well layered pop hooks in a perfectly simple song which pretty much repeats the same chord progression throughout. That is how a greatest pop songs are created, in my opinion.

6I Will Always Love You - Whitney Houston

It's not exactly "pop", I would say that is more soulful. It's my fave song by Whitney and actually the first song I ever heard by her. It's an awesome song and maybe one of the most romantic songs all times.

AMAZING song amazing voice... I HAVE BEEn singing this all day!

I love this singing I bolled me eyes when I found out she past away but she is always in my heart and that's why I vote this song

Once again I came back I love you Whitney Houston

The Contenders

11We Are Young - Fun.

Not really pop, but whatever!

12Give Me Everything - Pitbull
13Firework - Katy Perry

This really is Katy Perry's best song. And I totally mean it when I say, 'Katy Perry. YOU REALLY ARE A FIREWORK! ' You rock. And this definitely is one of your best songs. Hilarious. Anyone would agree. It should be in the top 10. Definitely.

The best pop song I've ever heard. This song rules the world of pop. Very inspiring and catchy song.

10 thumbs up for this beat. Its crazy why should it be the 29th best?! HUH ITS CRAZY ALRIGHT IT SHOULD at least BE THE 5TH BEST I WANNA SING OVER AND OVER AGAIN UNTIL I DIE

Go katy perry! I love this song!

14Problem - Ariana Grande

This the best song ever and her voice is so strong I love it!

15Like a Prayer - Madonna

This might have been one of the last great pop songs by Madonna. That being said, it isn't as strong as her other great songs. Over thirty years later, I caught myself with Material Girl in my head today without having to hear it. Ever song on her first two albums plus Crazy for You and the one from Desperately Seeking Susan are better than this one. It says more good about them than it does bad about Like a Prayer though.

This song is better than any other on this list. All those who really know music can say this. Go, Madonna! Queen Of Music!

Way more iconic than any of those listed. Do you honestly think anyone will remember call me maybe in ten years?

19Go Time - Jackie Evancho

Jackie Evancho lets loose and shows her teenage pop side. This girl has more talent than anyone I have ever known. I can't wait for her new album
"Awakening to come out September 23. What a ride the last four years have been. From 10 years old on AGT to her new world tour at age 14. Watch out world her she comes.

This song and video will be playing at all the Justice girls clothing stores - I hope her promoters plan to get it radio airplay... This song kicks butt.

I could listen to this song over and over and over and... - BobG

I love Jackie's voice so much!
