Top Ten Best Songs of 2009


The Top Ten

1 Bad Romance - Lady Gaga

Yeah, no. Too much autotune. - I80

I'm happy to see this on top! This is definitely in the top five for my favorite Gaga songs, and it's a really great song! - PandasNGaga


My current favorite song from Lady G

2 New Divide - Linkin Park

miley cyrus sucks. she should be at the very bottom of the list and this song is one of the best songs and should be #1. - jack2463

Linkin Park is the best! This song is absolutely amazing.

3 Fireflies - Owl City

Fireflies are smart, they know what autotune is. Too bad they use too much of it. - I80

I can not say enough about this song. It is so different from the others
No sappy love song, just out of the nature and feels so beautiful, 8.5/10 - GeneralJP

Heard this in second grade and fell in love with it!

Just no comments... Just beautiful I love this song!

4 21 Guns - Green Day

The best green day song

I love the song! It sounds so original in this song is a rock that I really liked it... Thank you Green Day! I hope you still surprise me with their songs! - teleroy

Helped me through so much... Metal and rock wannabes... Well I didn't talk smack about your favorite... Shows who's more mature... In my opinion Green Day and Linkin Park owned the 2000s best bands ever but 21 guns is my favorite

Finally a good song in the modern world - mmarce445

5 Uprising - Muse

Wanted to vote for New Divide, but it already took the top spot, so...

Thank goodness this song is ranked higher than Miley Cyrus' dreadful song Party in the USA

Now this song is just cool!

Should be a lot higher.

6 Good Life - Onerepublic

OneRepublic is one of my favorite bands and this song contributes to that reason. It is so uplifting and peaceful. 8/10 - GeneralJP

Such a beautiful and uplifting song.

Love it! So uplifting! Why is this amazing work of art so low?

Best song ever, uplifting. - RichardSSG

7 Hero - Skillet
8 Beautiful - Eminem

Eminem is better than all other rappers in the game...not to mention michael jaclson

Should be in the top.. Listen and you will be yourself.. One of the best songs of Eminem>>

9 Use Somebody - Kings of Leon
10 She Wolf - Shakira

The beat is so addictive, the voice is addictive, everything is just so wonderful.

The Newcomers

? People are Crazy - Billy Currington

Billy be out here spitting fire like calm down young g still time to spend - Bowserjr_alsogoesbywildgoose_

The Contenders

11 Savior - Rise Against

By far the greatest song to come out in 2009.

12 You Belong with Me - Taylor Swift

This is like the best song ever! I love it so much! HOW COME ITS ON THE 12th SPOT?! It deserves to be in the top 5! Please vote for this.

YES! Not the best in terms of lyrics and sound, but it's SO FUN TO JAM TO!


13 The Night - Disturbed

The Night is 2008... but it beats any other crap on this list, no doubt. I mean, seriously, why the hell are some of these songs popular? The Night is better than anything... - thunder850

This is a badass song. - 906389

14 1901 - Phoenix
15 Automatic - Tokio Hotel

When I heard this song and watched the music video I instantly fell in love with this band! The lyrics are so meaningful and with the way Bill sings it you can really feel the message of the song! And you can't expect a one-hit-wonder kind of thing with this song 'because all of their songs are SO CATCHY and the lyrics always mean so much! With this song, Tokio Hotel continues to show to the music world their own unique, modern, and distinct and revolutionizing rock sound. Even non-TH fans admit to liking this song instantly! Tokio Hotel rocks!

OMG... this is my favorite band in the world... and this song... UAU... You're automatic, sistematic... so traumatic you're automatic... there's no real love in you... why do I keep loving you?... this is perfect Bill this song deserves it a gold medal... and the guittar... the bass and the drums OMG just love it...

They are the best! Automatic is one of the most epic songs in the world and the album Humanoid is one EPIC album that everyone should get! The live is just EPIC!

Automatic Is Such A Good Song! And It Makes A Fair Point About Controlled Love :) Not My Favourite Song off The Album, But Its Still An Awesome Song And Should Win Fair And Square

16 Paparazzi - Lady Gaga

I like this song, but I don't think it's one of Gaga's best. - PandasNGaga

17 Party In the U.S.A. - Miley Cyrus

This is the good Miley Cyrus, before she started singing about bad stuff, and riding wrecking balls while, well, you know what. - PandasNGaga


18 I Gotta Feeling - The Black Eyed Peas

A great song to give you mood too starting or go to party - MatrixGuy

Best song ever! Why isn't "In the End" on the list?!

This song is amazing! It was number one for 14 weeks and The BEP were number 1 for 26 weeks in a row with this and Boom Boom Pow

Hello #2 song of the 21st century according to billboard!

19 Ignorance - Paramore
20 Monster - Skillet

How is this so underrated?

21 Gives You Hell - All-American Rejects

What a voice! Catchy beat

22 Crystalised - The xx
23 Alejandro - Lady Gaga

I love this one! Her vocals are great on this one. - PandasNGaga

24 You Found Me - The Fray
25 Strobe - Deadmau5

Put this 1 PLEASE, there is no song better than this one in this list

This song is a masterpiece

26 Bodies - Robbie Williams

Once heard - never forgotten - awesome

27 Dead and Gone - T.I.
28 You're Going Down - Sick Puppies
29 Eh Eh - Lady Gaga

Although Poker Face is definitely my favorite song by Gaga, and there are plenty of others that I like better than this one, but this song is pretty great! I love the 80's vibe of it, and I find this song very cute! - PandasNGaga

my favorite song by Lady G - Alexandr

30 Fire - Kasabian

The video is awesome. They rob a bank and use guitars as submachine guns. Who needs the likes of Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus when you can have Kasabian?

A proper band doing proper music. It's just a shame that most American people don't appreciate british indie bands.

This was one of the reasons why Kasabian won a Brit Award for best British Group at the Brit Awards.

It's always refreshing to hear music from a real band as opposed to groups with X-Factor origins.

31 Never Say Never - The Fray
32 Jai Ho - A. R. Rahman & The Pussycat Dolls

A Bollywood classic being sample makes this the best song the Pussycat Dolls have done. 3.5/5 - ProPanda

greatest song ever written on this planet. A.R. Rehman has done the finest job ever on this music...!

Superb as it's movie "Slumdog Millionaire" - MatrixGuy

Amazing song! One of my favorite songs from the Pussycat Dolls. (And yes, I do legitimately enjoy PCD songs. Don’t judge me)

33 Break - Three Days Grace

What IS THIS Bull

34 Whataya Want from Me - Adam Lambert


Best adam lambert song

35 All the Right Moves - Onerepublic
36 Vanilla Twilight - Owl City

This song is so beautiful it made me cry. Please vote for this. - JasePowers

Definitely. 9.5/10 - GeneralJP

37 The Climb - Miley Cyrus

I love Hannah Montana! I miss the old Miley Cyrus so much. - PandasNGaga


Best song ever, better than all that pseudo talented wannabe music called rock and metal.

38 Know Your Enemy - Green Day
39 Tik Tok - Ke$ha

That autotune though... 4/10 - GeneralJP

My 2 favorite song sung by Ke$he my first is we r who we r - noontime12345
