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.

51S.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.

67Listen to Your Heart - Roxette

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.

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.
