I vote American Boy by Estelle. I wish all number one singles could sound like that
I was going to say this 100%
I would say its been the only REALLY strong single in the charts this year
Not much good pop this year.
Katy Perry, that new Rihanna one, Chris Brown, Jordin Sparks, Ne-Yo... off the top of my head
Ting Tings - Great DJ.
Madonna - Give It 2 Me
Madonna - Give It 2 Me
or Great DJ
They truly are the Republica of their generation.
How much does the intro sound like Hot Chip? This, of course, is no bad thing
is a bit splendid
Vampire Weekend - A-Punk
Playing it a little fast and loose on the term "mainstream pop single", I know. Wikipedia calls it indie-pop, and who am I to argue with Wikipedia?
Sam Sparro - Black and Gold
Aplhabeat - Fascination
Usher - Either Love in This Club or Moving Mountains, they're both brilliant
Robyn - Who's That Girl?
I think these have been the only top 10-ers I've gone mad for this year, that I can remember.
Somehow, I've still only managed to hear that song about five times. I should probably download it
And didn't Who'S That Girl come out in 2006?
otherwise i would have included it.
Robyn + The Knife = magnificence.
I don't really know what order the singles came out. It's the only other song on her album I like actually, Kleerup was clearly the talent behind With Every Heartbeat, the answer to this threads question for last year.
i like most of the album...was Handle Me a single? That was brilliant.
Then Better in Time by Leona Lewis. I like that song...
Fascination would be 2nd for me.
'Dance wiv me' as well
Black and Gold
That Estelle song is bollocks.
is the one for me that one will be doing the rounds for a while yet.
I don't really listen to the radio so I don't really have a clue about alot of these suggestions.
I don't like American Boy though I'm not sure why...
'Can't speak French' by Girls Aloud.
one with the 'She's just being Miley' bit in been released yet? If so, that one.
Two Doors Down, if only for the chorus which is great
is a class tune! I aint afraid to admit that!
I remember Estelle on Skitz's Country Grammar. That was wicked tune. American Boy is bollocks.
I'm gonna second Wiley and add T2. Tomb Crew cropped Heartbroken in White Heat, it was wicked.
Oh, and Cassius. Loves me some Foals, man.
tune that cool french dude (Sebastian Tellier?) did on Eurovision.
'Raquel' by Neon neon ought to count in this thread too such is its spangly pop-innards.
Glad no-ones mentioned Alphabeat yet
Madonna's new one to 4 minutes I think?
Timbaland ought to release (pun intended) 'Release' too. That'd rape the charts...
Actually, whenever I sing Fascination i'm singing the Linus Loves or Sinden/Count version. Oh well, lyrics are the same.
Is my passion!
I use to play Countryman loads she is on a track called Domestic Science..
I wondered why I knew here voice.
Bollocks. My work brain letting me down. I knew 'Country Grammar' didn't sound right. I meant the album Countryman and, obviously, the track was Domestic Science.
"UK UK", parp parp paarrrrp.
without a shadow of a doubt.
dizzie and calvin. yep
Is that mainstream enough tho?
Man, I love that song.
if not WILEY - WEARING MY ROLEX.
usher - love in this club
was about you now by the sugababes this year? if it was, then that's the winner.
it was my second place on the podium for this thread last year, after With Every Heartbeat. That ridiculous Way I Are Timbaland song was #3
followed by Two Doors Down by Mystery Jets.
I'm sure she originally released it about 2 years ago though? I remember sitting on my sofa with 3 mates arguing about whether she was hotter than Aguilera or not.
I thought yes.
I haven't lived with them for 2 years now though?
high price d-_-b
by about a million miles.
by a country mile
didnt get into the top 20
and im pretty sure if you stopped 20 people on the street you'd be lucky if 2 knew who she was
I count The Hits as mainstream. If The Hits ain't got it, it ain't mainstream. If The Hits got it, it's mainstream.
That said, Viva La Vida hasn't got a video and that's one of the years biggest sellers, so..
ipods are the new levis, aren't they?
i didn't want a repeat of the "don't be so patronising about pop music!" argument the other week.
i reckon Substitute >>>>>>>>>> American Boy.
American Boy contains the worst rap verse in the history of ever. MC Paul Barman would be ashamed
Can't Speak French - Girls Aloud
American Boy - Etelle
Black and Gold - Sam Sparro
Closer - Ne-Yo
Ting Tings - Pretty much all three of their singles this year.
but I've checked out ^^^ (for the last 1/2 hr!): Estelle, Madonna, Alphabeat, Robyn, Usher, Miley Cyrus is shit, Girls Aloud, Mystery Jets (altho Laura Marling in vid is hot), Ashlee Simpson, and added Jonas Brothers and even Buckcherry (whose voice I like)...and they're all complete dog shit.
that Gabriella Cilmi song too.
I was having some bad thoughts when I scrolled down and read she is 16.
Great somg though.
Lupe fiasco, fascination and rolex for the top 5.
Dance Wid Me is the worst song Dizee has ever been involved in.
Black and Gold
Sweet About Me
Dance Wid Me is catchy, but REALLY annoying.
they will be able to live off that song for ever
watch out for the 2010 remix hitting #1 on the s/track to, um, oh something shit with ashton kutcher and jessica alba in which they think they are broether and sister but turn out to be the direct descendants of Jesus and the Devil and have to fight
but fall in love
probably my favourite kylie moment ever after cant get you out of my head.
funny old year for big bright fantastic pop singles that almost everyone likes, as this thread proves.
Touch My Body
catchy as fook.
