Top 10 Songs in the Billboard Decade End Hot 100 of the 2010sThe 2010s have been crazy and diverse years, with a wide range of popular songs. But which of the most popular songs are the best?
The Top Ten
Adele has been one of the most inspirational singers of the decade, and one of the best. She deserves all the praised she gets. In this instance she made one of her most personal and emotional ballads, very well produced (the piano is amazing).
Adele, only artist to have two songs here (original draft). Here she has one of her most epic songs, a very personal one, too, where she really showcases her vocal talent.
An amazing song which does an amazing job at representing toxic relationships, great rapping by Eminem and singing by Rihanna, very emotional and one of the best of the decade.
Best duet of the 2010s
Honestly not sure if I would call this the best duet including Rihanna but still really good.
Another very emotional song, probably the most emotional here, and probably the most touching topic on the list, the death of a loved one, whilst there are some amazing rivals, this is my pic for Number 1.
Now this song is amazing, it's one of the best examples of Pop done right, anthemic and yet really meaningfull, even using autotune to it's advantage. Sad this group was short-lived.
This song was super honest and aware of the problems with modern radio. Unfortunately, it seems to have resulted in just a reincarnation of bad radio music: slower, but no integrity. Still, this song I feel like deserves the spot.
Glad to see this here great song also welcome back Martinglez you haven't been on in ages have you. (I am a fairly new user but I have seen lots of your lists before). Overall I agree mostly with this list Perfect is the only song that I don't really love and even then it is still decent.
Surprising hit, many people have praised it, and for good reason. Some of the best storytelling in pop music, showing both sides of the conflict in hand, whilst also being a catchy and well-produced tune. Sad that Gotye couldn't really match this.
Ed Sheeran, a divisive figure in pop music, and personally he's a hit or miss. This song is one of his most hated ones, but I honestly love it. It's a very touching and personal tune, one of Sheeran's best.
Bruno Mars has had a bunch of pretty good hits this decade, but I think many agree that this is the best one (even the list itself, since it'si Number 1 on it). With an amazing production, this catchy dance hit is an amazing throwback song, and deserves that Number 1 spot.
I'm glad this was the highest ranked country song.
It's really surprising how well Avicii manages to mold soul and country into an EDM song also Aloe Blacc was great on this. A side note this is the only song on the decade end 100 that did not peak in the top 3 others that came close include I Like It, Dj Got Us Falling In Love, Starships and What Makes You Beautiful.
Whilst I wasn't a huge fan of those Miley years, this amazing ballad is producede incredibly, the lyrics are touching and meaningfull and her voice is nice.
