The Top Ten

1 Crazy In Love (2003)

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

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".

29 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

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