2 Complicated - Avril Lavigne

This is one of the best songs ever... Avril Lavigne is the queen of pop punk. Legendary song... Better than lose yourself and definitely number 1.

Avril broke the hold of the cutesy teen pop scene in 2002 with this song, it was the something different that pop for so long had craved. Thanks Avril. - crowdiegal

This represents how I feel bout my friend

I love this song. I was only 3 years old when it came out. Avril Lavigne is one of my favorite singers. This is one of my childhood songs.

4 All the Things She Said - t.A.T.u.

It is not just a song, it is a real deep emotion and art in the same time

Anthem for lesbians! Haha! Or maybe that's just me. It hooks you and keeps you in a lovely dreamy state through the entire song. It's a concept song, and I love it. It's so great!

'All the Things She Said' was their first, and 'Don't Regret' was their last. The music these two special women made will endure.

I lick the Russian version the best.

5 A Thousand Miles - Vanessa Carlton

Best song of 2002

Beautiful piano ballad about missing someone. I love the lyrics and feel in love with it the first time I heard the piano intro. I also love T.A.T.U. 's "All the Things She Said", but I love Vanessa Carlton as well.

Excellent song and the best song of 2002

Don't get me wrong, I love "Beautiful" but I have my one song per artist rule and of the two singles released by Xtina in 2002, this one will always win for me. It's catchy, it gets you dancing and makes you feel sexy. If I get married, this will be playing at the reception. - theOpinionatedOne
