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

Just pure magic... great sounds, perfect vocalization... feels like a futuristic song!

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.

Ok I understand why Thriller I #1 I love that song one of my favorites but that's only there because of POPULARITY more people know the song but Billie Jean is the BEST song while Thriller should be #1 on Top 10 most famous songs Billie Jean should be #1 on this one

It is so rad

3 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

5 I Want It that Way - Backstreet Boys

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.

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

I love that song. When I was a kid my mom played this song when she was depressed witch was all the time. But you know now I never hear that song but I still love it.

Hands down... best song ever!

6 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.

Its just a divtie

7 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.

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

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

bad song

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

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

Not sure because this more like a Hard Rock song - christangrant

10 Give Me Everything - Pitbull V 2 Comments

The Newcomers

? Somewhere Only We Know - Keane

It just has that sad happy tune that makes you think. One of favorite's, and always be one.

? Overprotected - Britney Spears

The Contenders

11 Like a Prayer - Madonna

This might have been one of the last great pop songs by Madonna. That being said, it isn't as strong as her other great songs. Over thirty years later, I caught myself with Material Girl in my head today without having to hear it. Ever song on her first two albums plus Crazy for You and the one from Desperately Seeking Susan are better than this one. It says more good about them than it does bad about Like a Prayer though.

This song is better than any other on this list. All those who really know music can say this. Go, Madonna! Queen Of Music!

Way more iconic than any of those listed. Do you honestly think anyone will remember call me maybe in ten years?

This song is so artsy that it's hard to consider it pop, but if you do, it is easily the greatest pop song of all time.

19 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

Great Song!
