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.

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.

12Go 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...


13We Are Young - Fun.
Not really pop, but whatever!

DId you know Canadians love her and this song weird but HOT

This song is better than any other on this list. All those who really know music can say this. Go, Madonna! Queen Of Music!
I am a big fan of most of her music, but even everybody who hates her seems to agree that this song is brilliant and timeless.
In a billion time better and higher than Thriller


18Gangnam Style - PSY
Awesome song! Should be in top 5
The only word I have for this song is epic cool

19Naturally - Selena Gomez
I love this song so much. Selena has a great voice! I would say she is way better than fun, she is one of the few artists in The top 100 billboard that can really sing, although Rihanna is really good too


This song is the best. Its catchy and you're gonna sing along after the first time you heard it. Its very dance and a standout from her debut album with The Scene. You can listen to it the whole day and never get sick of it

20Because of You - Kelly Clarkson
Always can touch my heart..
It's great..

21Umbrella - Rihanna
Amazing :) but what's up with all the illuminati stuff in the video
A truely amazing song

22Happy - Pharrell Williams

23Earth Song - Michael Jackson
Earth Song is an excellent song for so many reasons. One reason is that it made people learn that you should care about not to litter and recycle allot so you don't kill trees. Another reason is that it sounds so sad.
A song in sync with nature

24My All - Mariah Carey
Really?!?! Just placed at 20?! Come on its one of Mariah's greatest songs. You people should look at what the lyrics says, not how good the beat is or if who s the artist!

25Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You) - Kelly Clarkson

26Someone Like You - Adele

39Girlfriend - Avril Lavigne

40Purple Rain - Prince

41Crazy In Love - Beyonce

42Listen to Your Heart - Roxette
Roxette belongs to the top and only on any chart of mine. But that's just me. Time will tell whether a song is of quality or merely just a firework.
This is one of the best ballads I ever heard. Like it very much. Hope for much more songs like this from Roxette and Per Gessle.

43Billie 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.
The best song which must be in the top 10

44She Wolf - Shakira

45Ooh La La - Britney Spears
The chorus is Superb!

48Time After Time - Cyndi Lauper

49Papa Don't Preach - Madonna
A true blue pop song with a great message.

50Love The Way You Lie - Eminem
Wait what? This is rap not pop!
Okay, it's Eminem and Rihanna, so of course this song is sick. Would I know every word to it if it wasn't? No, that would be a waste of my time.
Eminems rap is just breath taking and rihanna adds the extra charm
[Newest]Eminem is a awesome rapper not a lame pop singer

51Kiss You - One Direction
No you are wrong this song sucks as well as the band and every other stupid boy bands out there try listening to something good like definitely leopard, or Bon Jovi or something like that.
This song sucks. just as much as the rest of 1D songs. do they even know how to write songs. while watching the music videos of 1D, I mute it and look at their faces.

52Genie In a Bottle - Christina Aguilera

53Skyfall - Adele
This song should be in top 5.
Miley Cyrus, one direction etc are nothing in comparison to adele.

54Tik Tok - Kesha

Amazing beats and music and the vocals were out of the world
One of my all time favorites

73Die MF Die - Dope

74Complicated - Avril Lavigne

75Sexy and I Know it - LMFAO

76You're Still The One - Shania Twain

77S.O.S. - ABBA
Pretty much any song by ABBA would deserve the top spot on this list. Their songs all have beautiful harmonies, unique instrumentals and very pleasant melodies. Their songs have the effect of making the listener want to sing along, and yet they have an outstanding amount of complexity to them. Fitting, for the pop genre, most of their songs have cheesy lyrics, and yet a surprising amount hold a lot of meaning if you listen. Most of the silliest of their songs are the most interesting to listen to, because of the stories that they tell. They are amusing and fun to sing. SOS is a very pretty song. It is not all sunshine and roses, but at the same time, it does not bring you down at all. I find it amazing, how ABBA was able to write such excellent lyrics, with English not being their first language.
This song made #1 in several countries, and was in the top 10 in countries around the globe. John Lennon had declared that it was one of his favourite pop songs, and Pete Townshend in particular said it is probably his favourite pop song. Agnetha's vocals are incredible, sounding almost as if she were breaking down in tears.


78Bye Bye Bye - Nsync

80Whistle - Flo Rida

81(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman - Aretha Franklin

84Maniac - Michael Sembello

85Pumped Up Kicks - Foster the People

I love this song!.. It is way better than what we hear on the radio nowadays -_-

86What Makes You Beautiful - One Direction
Hey! This song is awesome so this song should be at least in the top 12 4 crying out loud! Well if its of all time I understand but some songs that are here shouldn't even b beating one direction! Well that's all I'm saying so if anybody is reading this sorry for writing a lot and have an awesome day!
You are the best. I love you so so much 1D..

87Stereo Hearts - Gym Class Heroes
I think that this song is just as good as Call Me Maybe but that's just my oppinion
