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 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

38Billie Jean - Michael Jackson
MJ's the king of pop so it seems fair that he should get the top spot on the list.
I like Thriller (probably MJ's 2nd best song in my opinion) but I think this is probably his best song. Even for those that disagree, you gotta admit it should be in the top 100. It's not his most famous song for nothing.


Billie jean is number one! The best! This is symbol of pop.
Best song ever! Why is this so dowb in the list?

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...


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.

64You're Still The One - Shania Twain Listen to sample

65S.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.
