The Top Ten

1 Crazy In Love (2003)

Hard to imagine a worse choice than this; ahead of Satisfaction? NOT. Ahead of Bridge over Troubled Water? NOT. This should be only slightly ahead of Justin Bieber's "Baby".

Ahead of Hey Jude and Yesterday, I don't think so.

2 Baby Boy (2003)
3 We Belong Together (2005)
4 Irreplaceable (2006)

This was actually a very good song. - allamassal

5 Good Vibrations - The Beach Boys (1966)
6 Sitting on the Dock of the Bay - Otis Redding (1968)
7 No One (2007)
8 Yesterday - The Beatles (1965)
9 American Pie - Don McLean (1972)
10 Low (2008)

14 Bridge Over Troubled Water (1970)
15 I Gotta Feeling (2009)
16 Ticket to Ride - The Beatles (1965)
17 Black Beatles (2016)

I don't want to anger anyone on this site so I will just say it is a good song to hit #1. - SelfDestruct

It's their best song by far. - DankGodX

18 I Want You Back - The Jackson 5 (1970)
19 Hey Jude - The Beatles (1968)
20 My Heart Will Go On (1997)

22 Panda - Desiigner (2016)
23 Humble - Kendrick Lamar (2017)
24 I'm the One - DJ Khaled (2017)

No, this song was nothing more than a boring, mediocre pop song, and it was thankfully only #1 for one week. - allamassal

25 Thrift Shop - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (2013)
26 Wrecking Ball - Miley Cyrus (2013)
27 One Sweet Day (1995)

#1 for SIXTEEN straight weeks and number-one debut!

28 Nothing Compares 2 U (1990)
29 Fireflies (2009)
30 Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You) (2007)

This was 2012 not 2007, but anyway, this is Kelly Clarkson's best song. - allamassal

31 Everyday People - Sly and the Family Stone (1969)
32 Light My Fire - The Doors (1967)
33 My Sweet Lord - George Harrison (1970)

39 Another Brick in the Wall Pt. 2 - Pink Floyd (1980)
40 Starboy - The Weeknd (2016)
41 That's What I Like - Bruno Mars (2017)

I found this song's beat annoying along with the "rapping" in the verses and the titular line in the chorus, but the bridge is good. - allamassal

42 The Monster - Eminem (2013)
43 Perfect - Ed Sheeran
44 Livin on a Prayer - Bon Jovi (1986)
45 Time After Time - Cyndi Lauper
