Top 100 Pop Songs 2006


5 of 10

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.

60 - Dem Franchize Boyz - Lean Wit It, Rock Wit It

Just try to resist snapping and moving those shoulders.

59 - Nelly Furtado - Maneater

This is one fierce dance song that is only a bit weaker on the car radio.


58 - Nick Lachey - What's Left of Me

There is a real pop melody here under all the post-Jessica weepiness.


57 - Ciara featuring Chamillionaire - Get Up

The best way to enjoy "Get Up," if you can keep up, is learning the dance moves via the DVD included with Ciara's The Evolution album.

56 - Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Gold Lion

This driving tune very nearly broke the Yeah Yeah Yeahs into the big time.

55 - Ashley Parker Angel - Let U Go

If he could have sustained the roar that kicks this tune off, O-Town alum Ashley Parker Angel would have been found much further up the year-end line.


54 - AFI - Miss Murder

Eyeliner, skintight shirts, and rock.

53 - Teddy Geiger - For You I Will (Confidence)

Teddy proved he is one of the most talented teen musicians around with this debut hit.


52 - Daughtry - It's Not Over

This is not an instant classic, but Chris Daughtry's first single fills the pop-rock radio niche perfectly.


51 - Jessica Simpson - A Public Affair

Much of this may have been lifted from Madonna, but Jessica knew the part of Madonna's catalog to borrow from.
