Top 10 Best Pop Songs


The Contenders: Page 8

141 S.O.S. - ABBA

Pretty much any song by ABBA would deserve the top spot on this list. Their songs all have beautiful harmonies, unique instrumentals and very pleasant melodies. Their songs have the effect of making the listener want to sing along, and yet they have an outstanding amount of complexity to them. Fitting, for the pop genre, most of their songs have cheesy lyrics, and yet a surprising amount hold a lot of meaning if you listen. Most of the silliest of their songs are the most interesting to listen to, because of the stories that they tell. They are amusing and fun to sing. SOS is a very pretty song. It is not all sunshine and roses, but at the same time, it does not bring you down at all. I find it amazing, how ABBA was able to write such excellent lyrics, with English not being their first language.

This song made #1 in several countries, and was in the top 10 in countries around the globe. John Lennon had declared that it was one of his favourite pop songs, and Pete Townshend in particular said it is probably his favourite pop song. Agnetha's vocals are incredible, sounding almost as if she were breaking down in tears. - MGBSG1

No pop act can hold a candle to this pop music machine. Possibly the greatest songwriting band of all time. Abba. There are two kinds of people in the world, people who like Abba and people who won't admit that they like Abba.

142 Bye Bye Bye - Nsync
143 Spice Up Your Life - Spice Girls

This is such a fun song.

144 Meet Me at the Corner - Red Hot Chili Peppers
145 Skyfall - Adele
