Top 10 Best Pop Songs


The Top Ten

1 Thriller - Michael Jackson

Greatest entertainer to have lived.. Lives and will live forever! We love you MJ!

He is a purely born legend and this song is it's proof. A master of dancing and the king of pop. People are not fool calling him so. He will truely live forever in our hearts and in our ears - dwaipayanmazumder

Yeah, they call him the King of Pop for a reason. - funkmasta98

I agree with everyone.

2 Billie 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

Unbelievable song about a guy who has a one night stand and later finds out he might be the father of that woman's child. It's a great song and is Michael Jackson's greatest song as a solo artist.

To me, the top 10 belongs to Michael Jackson. He had so many great songs, it could be justified. His music is definitely better than anything this century.

Best everr!

3 Purple Rain - Prince

I cannot believe that Katie Perry, Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande are ahead of The Purple One. This is possibly the best song ever. I shouldn't have to explain why if you've never heard this song, enjoy this nine-minute masterpiece.

Why is call me maybe, one of the most annoying songs, higher than this masterpiece with great lyrics and vocals, and that badass guitar solo

Prince behind Britney Spears is like dinner first and breakfast last.

bad song

What can you expect from 10-years old kids as you as you who knows nothing about real music? - martin1

4 I 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

So sweet

Not really pop, but whatever!

So let's set the world on fire!

When I listen this song. Fun. is one of my favourite band.

Nice song, but I still don’t get why just because you are young you have to reap the world. How do sunglasses talk?

19 We Found Love - Rihanna

We found love in a hopeless. Place Rihanna!

Best Music Video and Dance Club Song

20 Counting Stars - One Republic


21 Bad - 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 watched a crack of Netflix and Lemony Snicket's A series of unfortunate events [a series you should totally read] and anyway they like played this song in it and I was like totally in love with it! It also had applause by Lady Ga Ga another song that's great! Definitely should be on this list as well! But bottom line Bad is a most excellent song!

26 Give Me Everything - Pitbull

Great song for its time


pop! haha

27 3 - Britney Spears
28 Americano - Lady Gaga
29 Listen 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.

30 Smooth Criminal - Michael Jackson

Best song ever

31 Hollaback Girl - Gwen Stefani
32 Scarface (Push It to the Limit) - Paul Engemann

I first heard this song from the Flashback radio station in Grand Theft Auto III and I loved it on first listen and played it a lot more times, it's a Pop song with complexity and loads of talent the song is 156 BPM which makes for a nice fast paced upbeat song and it even has a guitar solo, it came from an awesome movie too not only that its also the best song fro a montage and probably the most 80's song I have ever heard, Not a fan of Pop at all but this I love and no doubt my favorite. - christangrant

33 Take On Me - Aha

Umm this song is beaten by Fancy *leaves room* no I quit I give up - siguy

34 Song to the Siren - This Mortal Coil
35 You and I - Lady Gaga

I love every song on born this way

It's such a great song.

I like.. That song.,

36 Please Don't Go - Mike Posner
37 Firework - 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.

Love it it's so great Katie Perry Great song firework so good I would never think of it different

Love this song so catchy - RockStarr

I hate this

41 God Only Knows - The Beach Boys

Probably the best song ever written about loving someone...

Are you serious?! 44th?! This is the BEST pop song all time!

42 Party In the U.S.A. - Miley Cyrus

She is excellent! And Party in the U.S. A is definitely one of her best!
Its lyrics are good, the beat is good and she sings it in a terrific way!

I think that this song was definitely the peak of Miley so many little girls looked up to this song and it will forever reign in all human Eras

I love this song and I think Miley should have stayed this way

Better then her past songs like Wrecking Ball
