Top 10 Best Pop Songs of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Thriller - Michael Jackson Thriller - Michael Jackson Cover Art

ThE pop song which is considered by a lot of musicians and music producers as the cornerstone of the music industry... Indeed this album or song broke a lot of boundaries, made a lot of records and made HISTORY and gave us MAGIC... again a top spot for the KING OF MUSIC!

Deserves the #1 spot.
I love the top few songs. They're great and I thought everyone had good taste. When I got to This Is You or whatever it's called I stop reading the list. The choices you guys are making are burning my eyes. Stop it.

This is one of the only good entries on the list. When asked about best pop songs who the hell says problem or baby. This is coming from a metal head but at least I can tell goodand genuine music when I hear it and this song is both.

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

2 Billie Jean - Michael Jackson Billie Jean - Michael Jackson Cover Art

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.

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.

Billie jean is the best example of a pop song.. according to me, it is the best song of all time.. I never get bored of listening to "Billie Jean"..

3 Purple Rain - Prince Purple Rain - Prince Cover Art

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.

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

This is not pop...sounds like rock or metal

He's dead but I love this song!

4 I Will Always Love You - Whitney Houston I Will Always Love You - Whitney Houston Cover Art

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.

One of the Greatest from the 90's. If you wanna go back to then and hear some Amazing Vocals, this is the one.

The Vocals in this are Beyond Superb. How she Reached them High Notes, I will never know...

Still makes me Cry when listening, due to how Beautiful it really is. One Of A Kind.

5 Bad - Michael Jackson Bad - Michael Jackson Cover Art

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!

I LOVE MICHAEL JACKSON! he is so amazing and I think everyone michael jackson song should be on this list all his songs from 1972-1997 easpilly thiller,bad,billie jean and scream everyone say: M I C H A E L J A C K S O N I S T H E B E ST yeah that's true

Great song... it does not matters that you are not alive in this world but you are always alive and remembered in our hearts.. iove you forever... The one and merely KING OF POP MJ

6 ... Baby One More Time - Britney Spears ... Baby One More Time - Britney Spears Cover Art

Britney revolutionized the Pop Era. She is not only an excellent dancer but also has the best personality. She is humble, the best mom, sister, daughter a family member can have.

I voted this for Britney. But I think her best pops are Piece of Me and Criminal and every time. Listen to them and you'll know why.

Unlike like most songs on the list, this song is the very few songs to have a number 1 hit worldwide.

I love this song... I can't stop hearing it even after hearing it thousand times...

7 Beat It - Michael Jackson Beat It - Michael Jackson Cover Art

This is not a song in the pop genre, it's Hard Rock/Dance-Rock. But Michael Jackson, the living legend of popular music is amazing so I voted for Thriller or Billie Jean.

Epic song from an all time epic album. My vote goes to this one. Love you michael

So good it has Eddie Van Halen doing the Guitar solo

Not sure because this more like a Hard Rock song

8 Someone Like You - Adele Someone Like You - Adele Cover Art

I am from Iran. I love this song so much because it say a story which is going on wherever humans live.

Adele is beast. How come this ain't at the top of this list? This is REAL POP MUSIC. She never dissapoints

Love! So much passion & pain, it's real. It's beautiful! ♥

I love Adele and all of her songs are touching so really nothing bad to,say

9 Firework - Katy Perry Firework - Katy Perry Cover Art

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.

Why is it no 18? I think those who made this list have gone crazy it really deserves to be at least in the top ten and I said atleat remember this!

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

10 We are Young - Fun. We are Young - Fun. Cover Art

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

So let's set the world on fire!

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

We are young. so I set myself on fire, we can go

The Contenders
11 Call Me Maybe - Carly Rae Jepsen Call Me Maybe - Carly Rae Jepsen Cover Art

No.17 call me maybe is such a good song the second most popular song after gangnam style. And add more selena gomez songs I hate this list

Great for the bedroom and school environment with my teachers in their office. Really gets the mood going for the acts going down!

The most polar song in the world is imagine by john lennon! I don't mean views on YouTube,but everyone has heard that song at least once and its ten times better than this crud!

Totally belongs on this list, it is just perfect pop. Those strings make the whole song.

12 22 - Taylor Swift 22 - Taylor Swift Cover Art

I love this song

Her Song 22 Is The Best Song Of The Year Because
It's Really Catchy And Upbeat

13 Problem - Ariana Grande Problem - Ariana Grande Cover Art

I love your song it's the best, Ariana is the best singer in the world.

I don't usually listen to Ariana Grande but this is one of her best.

This the best song ever and her voice is so strong I love it!

Arianna grande is one of my favorite singers and one of my favorite songs

14 The Winner Takes It All - ABBA The Winner Takes It All - ABBA Cover Art

The lack of Abba in the top ten is disturbing

Best ever pop epic ballad!

15 Enjoy the Silence - Depeche Mode Enjoy the Silence - Depeche Mode Cover Art

Alan Wilder is behind this Masterpiece from 1990, and deserves Credit for this. Musical Guru he is.

16 Apologize - OneRepublic Apologize - OneRepublic Cover Art

This song is one of the few good songs in present decade, but it's overplayed. Still a good song though.

Seriously If you guys don't vote for this you're not human/ don't have any sense of good music.

23 Love the Way You Lie - Eminem Love the Way You Lie - Eminem Cover Art

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.

This Song is amazing 900 something million views on YouTube its epic!

A good song overall rap and pop combined in one song is pretty good.

Eminem is a awesome rapper not a lame pop singer

Mirrors is really a touching song that makes us believe we have to reflect ourselves in our life..
