Top 10 Catchiest Pop Songs

These pop tunes are either GREAT or TERRIBLE, but they are the catchiest!

The Top Ten

1 Shake It Off - Taylor Swift

This one is definitely Terrible and to me it's not catchy at all too..

I hate this song SO effing much! But yeh I guess its catchy - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

2 Thriller - Michael Jackson

One of the greatest songs of all time, from the greatest artist of all time :Michael Jackson!

I have to vote for this song because it's the best, one of the best of all time. It's a shame that this song or another mj song isn't on number one..

3 Love Me Like You Do - Ellie Goulding

This song is not only overrated as well as overplayed, it was also on Fifty Shades Of Gray. 3 reasons to hate it. - RiverClanRocks

4 Take on Me - A-Ha

This is good music. - RiverClanRocks

5 Baby - Justin Bieber

Yeah, because repeating the same word again and again does make it catchy, as is the case with most of the pop.
But then that's what I hate about generic pop. - Kiteretsunu

6 Blurred Lines - Robin Thicke
7 Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson

I think that when they say uptown funk three times or so people sing it for the rest of the day

8 We Found Love - Rihanna
9 Dark Horse - Katy Perry
10 Friday - Rebecca Black

The Contenders

11 Crazy In Love - Beyonce
12 Hips Don't Lie - Shakira
13 Somebody to Love - Justin Bieber
14 Radio Ga Ga - Queen
15 Help! - The Beatles

The Beatles were not pure pop, so the comparison is not precise. Some of their music was "pop-rock" though, so it does allow some comparison. Just about anything they did was better than any pop artist could even dream of.

This falls into the GREAT category, obviously. - PetSounds

16 Happy Together - The Turtles
17 Just Dance - Lady Gaga
18 Poker Face - Lady Gaga
19 What Makes You Beautiful - One Direction
20 California Gurls - Katy Perry
21 Big Night - Big Time Rush

Not only Big Night, every their song is catchy

22 I Want to Hold Your Hand - The Beatles

The double-tap of "She Loves You" and "I Want to Hold Your Hand" was the biggest event in the history of popular [not "pop"] music.
Like a musical Tsunami, it instantaneously swept away everything that went before it, with power that has not been equaled in the 51 years since it happened.
Yeah, that's pretty catchy.

23 Do You Believe In Magic - Lovin' Spoonful
24 She Loves You - The Beatles
25 Animals - Maroon 5
26 Toxic - Britney Spears
27 Vogue - Madonna
28 Billie Jean - Michael Jackson
29 Mmmbop - Hanson
30 Shots - Imagine Dragons
