Celine Dion did indeed take chances on this single that marked her return to English-language pop recording. She moves into slightly more rocking territory in highly tasteful fashion. Some pop fans may take a second look at Celine after hearing this track. Don't miss the Eurythmics reference in the second half of the song.

The combined power of a gorgeous song by upcoming band OneRepublic and a gentle, tasteful production job from Timbaland brought soaring pop music back to the top of the pop singles chart. OneRepublic leader Ryan Tedder was one of the hottest songwriters and producers in the business by the end of 2007.

Crossing over from the country music community, this is one of the best written songs of the year. The performance is available now in both country and pop mixes. You can take your choice. Either way it's a brilliant vocal performance by teen Taylor Swift in addition to the song's emotional charms.

It seemed a tall order for Kanye West to follow up the brilliance of "Gold Digger." However, undaunted, he made matching the quality with an entirely different approach seem effortless. Hip hop meets global electropop in bracing terms.
