Songs That Should Have Topped Billboard

Which song do you think especially deserved the #1 position on Billboard but failed to make it there?

The Top Ten

1 A Thousand Miles - Vanessa Carlton

I love everything about Vanessa Carlton, and I love the fact that there are people out there who think that this was worthy of being a number-one hit. It's probably one of the best pop songs in history, and while Vanessa Carlton has taken a number of major steps forward since this song, she would have never been able to build her career without "A Thousand Miles. " It's simply a magnificent song, and I'm honored to see it at #3 on this list. Be sure to pick up a copy of her latest album, "Rabbits on the Run. " You won't be disappointed!

Awesome song with really nice lyrics. There's something different in this song which pleases the heart. Great Work!

Amazing song. Full of depth and life! Vanessa Carlton is one of the best female pop singers I have heard till now.
