Top 10 Best Pop Songs


The Top Ten

1 Thriller - Michael Jackson 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

This sums up the 80's without any doubt.

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

2 Billie Jean - Michael Jackson Billie Jean - Michael Jackson

Although I personally like Thriller more, this song is a better POP song.

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

Thriller was not so bad but is nothing compared with Billie Jean - CedreticFomento

Should be the first but...first two places are ok

3 Purple Rain - Prince Purple Rain - Prince

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

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.

He's dead but I love this song! - DynastiNoble

4 I Will Always Love You - Whitney Houston

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

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

5 ... Baby One More Time - Britney Spears

I voted for britney
But I think it should be You Drive Me Crazy
And You Drive Me Crazy is also Brit's favorite from her first album

my baby one more time every day! - fadzul_fadzq

I love it and still love it. It jút gives me so many memories. Makes me wanna flashblack to the old times. Brit will always be the princess in my heart... :x

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.

6 Someone Like You - Adele

Her voice is awesome

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

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

7 We are Young - Fun.

This is alternative rock you potheads.

Ugh! fun. Is crap! How could anyone like them. He has such a weird voice.

Not really pop, but whatever!

So let's set the world on fire!

8 Call Me Maybe - Carly Rae Jepsen

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

It is a good pop song. Annoying though, I still like it.


No.17 what I love this song it's catchy and fun to listen to

9 Beat It - Michael Jackson

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. - malamJONES

More hard rock.

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 - christangrant

10 Problem - Ariana Grande

Problem is one of my favorite songs if it weren't for Problem I wouldn't know who in the world she is

Us metalheads HATE these pop songs. I have a poster of Ariana Grande in my room and I use it to throw darts at. She only became a 'MUSICIAN' because of the money. I really do not get why people like her music as most of her song are not written by her, she probably uses that auto tune crap and overall just a very bad musician. And I am sure that my metalhead buddies feel the same way. If you are willing to look into metal music after what I said, I suggest Metallica, Iron Maiden, Megadeth and if you really want to, listen to some Pantera. But whatever you do,DO NOT LISTEN TO NICKELBACK! They are probably just as bad as Arianda Grande.

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

One of the worst songs of all time.


The Newcomers

? Feel This Moment - Pitbull

The Contenders

11 The Winner Takes It All - ABBA

Best ever pop epic ballad!

The lack of Abba in the top ten is disturbing - SoldierOfFortune

12 Enjoy the Silence - Depeche Mode

Electronic Pop Masterpiece that'll never be forgot.

13 Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson

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

This song is amazing!

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

Nice dancing

14 Apologize - OneRepublic
15 All of Me - John Legend

This is a heart touching song that is great for loved ones. This love song is incredible and John Legend is the best

16 Angels - Robbie Williams

This song is for everyone

17 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.

18 Firework - Katy Perry

I love this song!

Most of my old friends from my old school and I love this song.

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.

19 Tonight - Enrique Iglesias

Better then her past songs like Wrecking Ball

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

32 3 - Britney Spears
33 Poker Face - Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga sounds dumb, yet she is the Queen Of music in MY opinion. Haters gonna hate. Lady Gaga was bullied for her passion, music. And if you bully her, oh boi u gettin a whooping! Respect the queen - zoer37

I go to almost all your concerts and poker face is my favorite nothing can top it you are A great singer I don't know what I'd be listening to without poker face it's like so cool I never heard a song like it and I sing at school at home with my friends in my room in the car on my phone no time to sto sing at school at home with my friends in my room in the car on my phone no time to stop if my friends don't like it I might cry love poker face best song ever

So great never listen to any song listen to it all the time I wish I was the song I if I feel bad I listen to poker face when I'm bored with my friends we listen to poker face when I'm driving in my car I listen to poker face when getting ready to go to sleep I listen to poker face what would I listen to that's not better I love it it's so great when I hear on the radio I turn it up all the way don't think I'll ever change it out of my number one love it

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!

34 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.

39 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

40 Song to the Siren - This Mortal Coil
41 Please Don't Go - Mike Posner
42 Girlfriend - Avril Lavigne

Some lyrics you can hear in the sample: She's like, so whatever! You can do, so much better. I think we should get together now! And that's what everyone's talking about! Hey hey, you you! I don't like your girlfriend! Now way, no way! I think you need a new one! Hey hey, you you! I can be your girlfriend! Hey hey, you you! I know that you like me! No way, no way! No it's not a secret.

Love the song! Super fun! Its something you and your bff's can listen to and sing together.

Hey hey you I don't like your girlfriend no way no way I think you need a new one!

This is a awesome song! So much fun to sing

43 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!

44 Love the Way You Lie - Eminem

Wait what? This is rap not pop!

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.

Eminem is a awesome rapper not a lame pop singer

Eminems rap is just breath taking and rihanna adds the extra charm

45 Fancy - Iggy Azalea

This isn't even a decent pop song, this is such a crappy "Rap song". I put it in quotation marks because that's not rapping, that's boasting! - blst0033

I like this song it is fun and I like to sing it and rap

Love this song so catchy - RockStarr

Iggy is best rapper!

46 Good Life - Onerepublic
47 Fireflies - Owl City

The best song on this list so far as far as I'm concerned.

Come on this one deserves a top 100 spot at least

48 Shape of You - Ed Sheeran
49 Take On Me - Aha

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

50 Hips Don't Lie - Shakira

Okay! It's very catchy and Shakira has a amazing voice so lets just say that it belongs at least 5 place?

Best pop song I've ever heard. love it very much you ROCK SHAKIRA!
