Songs That Should Have Topped Billboard

Which song do you think especially deserved the #1 position on Billboard but failed to make it there?

The Top TenXW

1A Thousand Miles - Vanessa Carlton

I love everything about Vanessa Carlton, and I love the fact that there are people out there who think that this was worthy of being a number-one hit. It's probably one of the best pop songs in history, and while Vanessa Carlton has taken a number of major steps forward since this song, she would have never been able to build her career without "A Thousand Miles. " It's simply a magnificent song, and I'm honored to see it at #3 on this list. Be sure to pick up a copy of her latest album, "Rabbits on the Run. " You won't be disappointed!

Awesome song with really nice lyrics. There's something different in this song which pleases the heart. Great Work!

Amazing song. Full of depth and life! Vanessa Carlton is one of the best female pop singers I have heard till now.

So this is number 1? I can't agree with you more than I can; this woman has one of the best singing voices I have ever heard.

The Contenders

11The Sweet Escape - Gwen Stefani
12You Belong With Me - Taylor Swift
13On the Floor - Jennifer Lopez

this awesome dance/pop song topped many countries but not Hot 100. Real shame. On the Floor is much better than those trash from Gaga, Rihanna or K. Perry - Magnolia

14Paparazzi - Lady Gaga
15Unfaithful - Rihanna
16Baby - Justin Bieber & Ludacris

This didn't top billboard because it's the worst song ever!

17Smooth Criminal - Michael Jackson
18Mr. Know It All - Kelly Clarkson

I adore Kelly, her wonderful voice and deep lyrics. Everything she does is so underrated - Magnolia

Anything by kelly clarkson should top the charts! That is a fact!

19£1 Fish - The £1 Fish Man

Christmas wouldn't be Christmas withought a one off novelty song.

20If You Want to Get to Heaven - Ozark Mountain DaredevilsV1 Comment
