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.

I honestly don't even find this song catchy. It doesn't have a very strong hook to my ear. For your money, Billie Jean is a way better pop song. Just try getting that one out of your head.

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 I Want It that Way - Backstreet Boys I Want It that Way - Backstreet Boys Cover Art

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

A great song. Much better than other songs of backstreet boys. It is a song that has changed pop music, it was much different from other male pop artists at that time and thus changed the way of singing style of pop male artists. But sadly this song is always under rated as it is a boyband song.

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.

Still listening to it in 2012, and it's my favourite.
It's such a cool song, with a catchy chorus, along with great lyrics. I love this song. Probably the most listened from the last 3 weeks.

4 ... 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...

5 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.

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

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

6 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!

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

This is sexiest Michael album of all time. Love you Michael!

7 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.

This was a Monster Hit back in Late 1992, and everyone was so Stunned at her Vocal Skills and much more.

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.

8 Poker Face - Lady Gaga Poker Face - Lady Gaga Cover Art

Lots of well layered pop hooks in a perfectly simple song which pretty much repeats the same chord progression throughout. That is how a greatest pop songs are created, in my opinion.

This is one of my faverote lady gaga songs. Lady gaga is the queen of pop forever and this song is a masterpeice, like all her others. She is better than Madonna and Brittney Spears put together. This song is so catchy!

The song just super, which should fall into the top 5. Because it sounds just fine and easily, well done Lady Gaga... By the way is my favorite song!

Hold up here.
Lady GaGa is awesome. She is such a good Singer and I could sing this song over and over again about 1000 times.

9 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

The best song of all times!

Great awesome song.

10 Call Me Maybe - Carly Rae Jepsen Call Me Maybe - Carly Rae Jepsen Cover Art

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!

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

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

The Contenders
11 Firework - Katy Perry Firework - Katy Perry Cover Art

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.

This song is what all pop songs should be. It's inspirational and powerful!

Cause baby you are firework I love this song katy voice is so powerful!

12 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

Her voice is awesome

Best after mj

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

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

So let's set the world on fire!

Uh...heck yeah its pop!

14 22 - Taylor Swift 22 - Taylor Swift Cover Art

I love this song

15 Party In the U.S.A. - Miley Cyrus Party In the U.S.A. - Miley Cyrus Cover Art

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!

Awesome song. I love it, even though its not in my top five favorite songs. Its in the top 20! So far away from five. Probably #16-11 in top twenties.

Miley Cyrus is awesome I love the song Wrecking Ball but Party in the USA is my favorite Miley Cyrus song of all time.

This us the best song ever! I love it so much! It should be NO1 it really should! It rules! Miley rules!

16 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!

I'm her biggest fan

17 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.

Electronic Pop Masterpiece that'll never be forgot.

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

Best ever pop epic ballad!

19 Apologize - OneRepublic Apologize - OneRepublic Cover Art
20 Angels - Robbie Williams Angels - Robbie Williams Cover Art
21 Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson Cover Art

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

Think of a party. Think of a dance floor... I am very very sure you think of this song

This song is amazing!

22 Tonight - Enrique Iglesias Tonight - Enrique Iglesias Cover Art

What a song! One of the best! Should be on top! Come on all fans of enrique!

WOW! I just listened to this song but its amazing! Totally yes!

This should be on the top. What a moving song

Excellent singer...brill voice

23 Go Time - Jackie Evancho

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.

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.

A catchy new pop song from the versatile voice of Jackie Evancho.
Classical Crossover, Soft Jazz and now Pop music!

I could listen to this song over and over and over and...
