This is admittedly a subjective list based on judgements of quality instead of sales figures or radio airplay. A number of songs have expanded reviews - click on the word 'Review' to read more information about the song.
This list should be a great conversation starter and feel free to agree or disagree. Either way there is a lot of great pop music to be found here.
100 - Paris Hilton - Stars Are Blind
This year's top 100 kicks off with the most annoying song of the year. However, if a bit of mindless reggae pop with a particularly weak voice is your thing, then Paris is your singer.
99 - Yung Joc - It's Goin' Down
Repetition is the key - "it's goin' down" everywhere!
98 - Fergie - London Bridge
Fergie's first solo single was clumsily built around a raunchy sexual metaphor. Pop radio loved it, but many of us got tired of it...quickly.
97 - Blue October - Hate Me
The song of the year for those into self loathing.
96 - Young Dro featuring T.I. - Shoulder Lean
Atlanta brought us some brilliant grooves this year, but this wasn't among the best.
95 - Jibbs - Chain Hang Low
It is fun and entertaining the first time through, but the "Turkey in the Straw" connections still raise some disturbing questions.
94 - Gwen Stefani - Wind It Up
Gwen revisits Broadway with less satisfying results than "Rich Girl."
93 - Diddy featuring Nicole Scherzinger - Come to Me
Somewhat undistinguished sexy pop is not really what Diddy was aiming for in a big comeback.
92 - Pussycat Dolls featuring Snoop Dogg - Buttons
It's not among the best songs from their string of huge pop hits, but "Buttons" is still listenable.
91 - Clay Aiken - Without You
For the first single from the album A Thousand Different Ways, Clay Aiken turned in a strong version of this pop classic, but it promptly sank with little support from pop radio.
