The 50 best pop songs
'What Makes You Beautiful' by One Direction album cover
50. 'What Makes You Beautiful' – One Direction

For better or worse, five boys changed modern pop songs forever in 2011. One Direction’s first single pandered to the insecurities of every prepubescent girl around the world, selling over a million copies and earning a solid slot on every decent Spotify party playlist. Love it or hate it, you can’t deny it’s catchy as hell (and it gave us Harry Styles, so...). Rosie Percy

'U.G.L.Y.' by Daphne & Celeste album cover
49. 'U.G.L.Y.' – Daphne & Celeste

These days, if a pop song isn’t about romance then it’s about #beingyourself, but roll back the years to 2000 and squeaky-voiced duo Daphne & Celeste were all about the diss tracks. ‘U.G.L.Y’ features the kind of insults Taylor Swift could never shake off. Featuring fat jokes and ‘yo mama’ put-downs, it would never get made now, but it’s a certified jam. Kate Lloyd

'Let it Go' by Idina Menzel album cover
48. 'Let it Go' – Idina Menzel

You don’t have to actually like ‘Frozen’ to appreciate what is surely the most powerful ballad of recent musical history. Sure, the lyrics are technically about castles and icy superpowers, but ultimately the message is in the soaring, string-drenched melody: it doesn’t matter whether everyone hates you for only having a snowman for a mate (or something), as long as you can belt out a top C loud enough to drown out all of Broadway. It’s the best of musical theatre transmitted to the masses by the magic of Disney. No wonder it sold 10 million copies. Ashleigh Arnott

'Pure Shores' by All Saints album cover
47. 'Pure Shores' – All Saints

Written for Danny Boyle’s trouble-in-paradise film ‘The Beach’ and given a dreamlike shimmer by producer William Orbit, All Saints’ masterpiece builds from languid ripples to an almighty tidal wave of a chorus. Despite the lyric about deserts, the shots of the band walking on a beach in the video were filmed on the North Norfolk coast: less Leonardo DiCaprio, more Alan Partridge. James Manning

'A Girl Like You' by Edwyn Collins album cover
46. 'A Girl Like You' – Edwyn Collins

A massive surprise hit pop song in the ’90s, this wins for the scuzzy guitar riff alone: its quivering distortion is the musical equivalent of a dangerous love affair, so it just makes sense when a tortured Edwyn drawls in his trademark low ‘n’ nerdy blues voice how his ‘hands are bleeding and knees are raw’. Plus it features a vibraphone played by a Sex Pistol. I mean, c’mon. Amy Smith

'Royals' by Lorde album cover
45. 'Royals' – Lorde

A 15 year-old girl from small-town New Zealand makes musical history with a massive international hit that rips the piss out of US hip hop’s culture of bling. It’s not the kind of thing that happens a lot in pop music, which makes the incredibly sparse, intricately layered, ultra-classy ‘Royals’ even more of a treasure. ‘Let me be your ruler,’ sang Lorde. ‘Yes please,’ replied millions of pop song fans. James Manning

'Hotline Bling' by Drake album cover
44. 'Hotline Bling' – Drake

Take away the mountain of memes, ignore Drake’s beautiful dad dancing and this pop song would still be a winner for the ages. That delicate, trickling calypso beat effortlessly shrugs off the lover who never calls, transforming a classic tale of ghosting into an eminently danceable revenge song that everyone – ex included – would struggle to resist. No wonder it was literally inescapable for the whole of summer ’15. Amy Smith

'Let Me Blow Ya Mind' by Eve ft Gwen Stefani album cover
43. 'Let Me Blow Ya Mind' – Eve ft Gwen Stefani

Take two cool-as-hell women, put them together on a track with a slow, cocky beat and you get one of the best hip-hop-meets-pop collaborations ever. ‘Let Me Blow Ya Mind’ is a four-minute brag about career success. The lyrics are a lesson in sass and the melody is both slow-paced and floor-filling. Kate Lloyd

'All the Things She Said' by tATu album cover
42. 'All the Things She Said' – tATu

The crass, controversy-courting faux-lesbian gimmick makes this a bit of a cultural relic, but ‘All the Things She Said’ is still absolutely gripping. Blasting straight out of the gates with an unforgettable chorus, it suddenly drops to a hardly audible verse and manages to fit bizarre prog synths, roaring basslines, acoustic guitar and an acapella bridge into just under four minutes. James Manning

'Thong Song' by Sisqo album cover
41. 'Thong Song' – Sisqo

A monster-sized pop song dedicated to the smallest, flimsiest piece of underwear. The breathless Sisqo worships those truck-like ‘dumps’ over sweeping cinematic strings and an itchy, hyperactive beat. But it’s the epic key change that really stretches the knicker elastic and makes this the truly gargantuan hit it is. Amy Smith

'Can't Hold Us Down' by Christina Aguilera album cover
40. 'Can't Hold Us Down' – Christina Aguilera

Beyoncé, Meghan Trainor and Taylor Swift might get all the credit for being feminist pop artists, but Christina Aguilera’s ‘Can’t Hold Us Down’ is arguably the most undervalued female empowerment track of all time. It covers everything from mansplaining to slut-shaming, features a snappy Lil’ Kim verse and has a chorus that’s perfect for shouting at men at house parties. Kate Lloyd

'Dancing in the Street' by Martha Reeves & The Vandellas album cover
39. 'Dancing in the Street' – Martha Reeves & The Vandellas

Summer wouldn’t be summer without the sound of Martha Reeves callin’ out around the world. More than half a century since the Vandellas’ hit pop song, its opening drum roll (played by Marvin Gaye) and horn riff are still irresistible invitations across the nations. And it’s also kept its political connotations, only these days you’re just as likely to see LGBT protesters or Black Lives Matter activists voguing in the street. James Manning

'I Love It' by Icona Pop album cover
38. 'I Love It' – Icona Pop

Icona Pop’s breakout hit is a sugar rush with an extra shot of hormones. What could have been plain bratty is instead an irrepressible call to arms. Propelled by 15 gigawatts of Swedish pop magic, this song doesn’t just bounce but vaults over the competition for exactly three minutes of pure energy. Reckless abandon! Yeah! Amy Smith

'Daydream Believer' by The Monkees album cover
37. 'Daydream Believer' – The Monkees

The Monkees were recruited as Beatles ringers for a TV show, but they ended up mirroring the real thing: both by releasing astonishing pop songs, like this glorious burst of sonic sunshine (complete with Merseybeat accents and a Beach Boys lift) – and by recording some of the weirdest sounds of the ’60s. For the exact opposite of ‘Daydream Believer’ check out their track ‘Zilch’, the stuff of seriously bad trips. Kate Lloyd

'All That She Wants' by Ace of Base album cover
36. 'All That She Wants' – Ace of Base

From Abba to Avicii via The Cardigans and Robyn, Sweden has always had a knack for turning out some of pop music’s biggest acts and most memorable moments. In 1992, it was Stockholm’s Ace Of Base’s turn to take Swedish pop to the world, hitting Number One in ten countries with an unlikely slice of hook-laden digital reggae that was so catchy, you still hear workmen whistling it almost 25 years later. Jonathan Cook

'Chandelier' by Sia album songs
35. 'Chandelier' – Sia

The best pop songs are about feelings that all human beings share, and anyone who’s ever seen a chandelier can understand what masked Aussie pop maven Sia is on about in her biggest self-sung hit. Remember that party girls don’t get hurt, so downing so many shots you lose count is a sensible precaution before you start swinging. James Manning

'7 Days' by Craig David album cover
34. '7 Days' – Craig David

Crooning over an ultra-slick guitar lick, switching up fast-talking verses with a hands-in-the-air chorus, Craig sounds like the ultimate lothario on his poppiest banger. But ‘7 Days’ is endearingly nerdy: check the weird preoccupation with numbers in the lyrics, and consider the self-deprecating video that casts Craig as a UKG Bill Murray, faking it till he makes it with the help of a ‘Groundhog Day’-style temporal loop. James Manning

'Heart of Glass' by Blondie album cover
33. 'Heart of Glass' – Blondie

The impossibly high, dreamy voice of ultimate platinum pop star Debbie Harry always gets all the girls in the room singing knowingly at each other. It’s the breezy, carefree tone in which she coos about being heartbroken that makes us think: if we just keep swaying, Blondie will make everything okay. Kyra Hanson

'Crush' by Jennifer Paige album cover
32. 'Crush' – Jennifer Paige

Pop’s lesser Jennifer may have been a one-hit wonder, but given that the first lyric of said hit is ‘ooooh’ she probably isn’t sad about it. This pseudo-sexy classic also rhymes ‘blowing me a kiss’ with ‘scientist’, but what it lacks in wit it makes up for in crazy catchy chorus. And more oohs and aaaahs than a suspect massage parlour. Ashleigh Arnott

'Let Me Love You' by Mario album cover
31. 'Let Me Love You' – Mario

Unashamedly emosh and straight from the heart, RnB songs are loved and loathed with equal zeal by music fans. But even the most stone-hearted metal-head or po-faced techno purist couldn’t fail to catch feelings to this smash hit 2004 ballad. It’s the ultimate slow jam, so don’t just let Mario love you, let yourself love him back– it’s okay, no one will judge you. Jonathan Cook

'Since U Been Gone' by Kelly Clarkson album cover
30. 'Since U Been Gone' – Kelly Clarkson

A bazillion times better than the similarly titled Rainbow song, ‘Since U Been Gone’ was many people’s first exposure to Kelly Clarkson’s mighty lung capacity, and a high point for the early-noughties pop-rock explosion: a gleeful break-up anthem that comes across like Avril Lavigne meets ‘I Will Survive’. Fittingly for a hit by the first ‘American Idol’ winner, it’s now regularly butchered on talent shows worldwide. James Manning

'Hot N Cold' by Katy Perry album cover
29. 'Hot N Cold' – Katy Perry

Douchebag guys feature heavily in pop song lyrics, but they normally find their home in break-up ballads and the work of Kelly Clarkson. With ‘Hot N Cold’, Katy Perry takes those angry lyrics and lays them over fast-paced giddy pop. The result is a track that relishes in the drama of being with a guy who’s just not that into you. It’s vintage KP. Kate Lloyd

'Shake it Off' by Taylor Swift album cover
28. 'Shake it Off' – Taylor Swift

Tay Tay may have plenty of diehard fans from BSIO (Before ‘Shake It Off’), but if one song made her the global phenomenon she is now, this is it. It’s the ponytail-wearing, squad-hanging, dancefloor-bouncing pop jewel in the crown that is ‘1989’, and 2015’s radio waves would have been a far bleaker place without it. It’s also continuing proof that Max Martin is the unsung hero of the music industry (Google him immediately; it will blow your pop-loving mind). Ashleigh Arnott

'Euphoria' by Loreen album cover
27. 'Euphoria' – Loreen

The Eurovision Song Contest doesn’t have a clean sheet, musically speaking. But just occasionally, this annual session of international bickering, eye-popping costumes and truly terrible music produces a timeless banger. ‘Euphoria’ didn’t just win the contest for Sweden in 2012, but also exploded across Europe’s clubs. A majestic, pounding, transcendent floor-filler that fully lives up to its ambitious title, this is the Ronseal of Europop. James Manning

'Get Ur Freak On' by Missy Elliott album cover
26. 'Get Ur Freak On' – Missy Elliott

Missy Elliott is so keen for you to get your freak on that she repeats it more than 40 times throughout this pop-meets-hip hop banger. Co-produced by pop magician Timbaland, it's got the kind of urgent beat that feels made to soundtrack a tense club scene in a teen movie, and its lyrics are iconic from start to finish. Plus the video features more cameos than a vintage jewellery store: Ludacris, LL Cool J, Ja Rule, Busta Rhymes, Master P, Spliff Star, Lil' Romeo, Eve and Nate Dogg all appear. Kate Lloyd

'Eternal Flame' by The Bangles album cover
Courtesy of the Artist
25. 'Eternal Flame' – The Bangles

Even Atomic Kitten’s wet version didn't put a dampener on this burning power ballad, recorded at the end of the ’80s by the huge-haired LA girl band. Maybe Jenny Frost and co could have taken a leaf out of The Bangles' pop playbook: Susanna Hoffs apparently sang her lead vocal naked, which goes some way towards explaining how ‘Eternal Flame’ still manages to sound both vulnerable and sensual. James Manning

'Biology' by Girls Aloud album cover
24. 'Biology' – Girls Aloud

Girls Aloud might be widely acknowledged as second best to the Spice Girls, but their pop songs have definitely stood the test of time far better than Geri and co’s. In fact, even in the cold, harsh light of 2016, ‘Biology’ still has the kind of camp energy that gets everyone from your mum to your lad cousin on the dancefloor at weddings. Kate Lloyd

'Just Can't Get Enough' by Depeche Mode album cover
23. 'Just Can't Get Enough' – Depeche Mode

As a welcome reminder of how universally thrilling new love is, one of the greatest pop songs about that giddy sensation was written and performed by four weird blokes from Basildon. The dinky synths haven’t aged that well, but ‘Just Can’t Get Enough’ is such a perfectly formed call-and-response hit that it’s been adapted into a football chant: the ultimate badge of catchiness. James Manning

'Girls Just Want to Have Fun' by Cyndi Lauper album cover
22. 'Girls Just Want to Have Fun' – Cyndi Lauper

Cyndi Lauper’s rebellious anthem perfectly captures the freedom of your earliest nights out as a teenager. It pretty much takes all criticism of 6am-finish nights outs, binge drinking, loud cackling on public transport and replies with one big metaphorical shrug emoji. All that, AND a glockenspiel solo? Yes please. Kate Lloyd

'Get Lucky' by Daft Punk album cover
21. 'Get Lucky' – Daft Punk

With Pharrell on vocal duties and Nile Rodgers on guitar, the helmeted Frenchmen’s biggest hit is a piece of wipe-clean disco so immaculately crafted you might imagine there was some algebra involved – but like all the best pop songs, it still throbs with life. Not since Lionel’s ‘All Night Long’ has a song sounded so balmy and full of promise. Matt Breen

'Uptown Funk' by Mark Ronson ft Bruno Mars
20. 'Uptown Funk' – Mark Ronson ft Bruno Mars

None of us wanted Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’s horn-heavy collaboration to be the ultimate floor filler, but it’s completely impossible not to dance to ‘Uptown Funk’s finger-clicking, call-back shouting, bass voice-rumbling, funk guitar-jangling crescendo of a party banger. Love him or loathe him, there’s no denying that Ronson’s production here is genius: it carries you through four-and-a-half minutes with barely a second’s downtime to swig your alcopop. Ashleigh Arnott

'Everybody (Backstreet's Back)' by Backstreet Boys album cover
19. 'Everybody (Backstreet's Back)' – Backstreet Boys

It’s pretty hubristic to release a ‘we’re back!’ single a year after your debut album, but the Boys were never afraid of going OTT – which is precisely why ‘Everybody’ was such a massive hit. The best bit is Nick and Brian trading anxious questions like pubescent boys: ‘Am I original? Am I the only one? Am I sexual?’ Guys, we think you’re just dandy. James Manning

'Holiday' by Madonna album cover
18. 'Holiday' – Madonna

Some 35 years after it dropped, Madonna's 1983 breakthrough single remains one of her most irresistible hits. Beginning with an instantly recognisable synth riff, 'Holiday' is a completely joyous paean to escapism with a chorus melody that manages to be carefree and wistful at the same time. If you were to hear it by chance today, perhaps during your lunchtime trip to the Co-op, it really would be so nice. Nick Levine

'Black Magic' by Little Mix album cover
17. 'Black Magic' – Little Mix

Few modern pop songs are as irresistibly catchy as ‘Black Magic’. The Haribo-sweet track’s full of witchy themes and veiled sexual references. We’re talking getting your boy on his knees, keeping him up all night and offering him a sip from your secret potion. It’s the drum beat and hand clap combination that really gets stuck in your head, though. Kate Lloyd

'MMMBop' by Hanson album cover
16. 'MMMBop' – Hanson

Sibling trio Hanson topped charts across the globe in 1997 with this endlessly infectious teen-pop nugget. Zac Hanson says 'MMMBop' actually "represents a frame of time or the futility of life," but really, who cares? Singing along to this song's nonsense chorus gives a blast of pure pleasure every time. All together now: "Mmm bop, baduba dop..." Nick Levine

'West End Girls' by Pet Shop Boys album cover
15. 'West End Girls' – Pet Shop Boys

Take the Pet Shop Boys manifesto from a later single – ‘Che Guevara and Debussy to a disco beat’ – then swap in TS Eliot and Ennio Morricone for Che and Claude, and you’ve pretty much got the formula for this unique ’80s smash hit pop song. No-one had ever heard anything quite like it, and apart from a raft of imitators, that’s more or less still the case. James Manning

'Africa' by Toto album cover
Image: Columbia
14. 'Africa' – Toto

Sometimes you want a pop song to serve up ineffable cool, and sometimes you just want to bellow along to a bunch of anonymous-looking white dudes singing awkwardly phrased post-colonial nonsense about Mount Kilimanjaro. It may be tacky as fuck, but there’s something about the warm glow of ‘Africa’ that unites a room like little else. James Manning

'The Way You Make Me Feel' by Michael Jackson album cover
13. 'The Way You Make Me Feel' – Michael Jackson

‘The Way You Make Me Feel’ is best enjoyed with others – it’s one of those pop songs that makes you instantly turn to your partner/best friend/anyone in the vicinity and mouth the lyrics at them seductively. In our heart of hearts MJ will always be the King of Pop, and every moon-walking, crotch-grabbing mover-and-shaker on the dancefloor knows it. Kyra Hanson

'Overload' by Sugababes album cover
12. 'Overload' – Sugababes

Considering that they were all in their mid-teens and apparently at each other’s throats most of the time, it’s amazing that the original Sugababes managed in their brief existence to co-write and release one of the greatest pop songs of the noughties. Their debut single was like nothing else in the charts at the time: a sultry, creeping pop/R&B/surf rock shuffle with astonishingly cool, raw vocals, it blows the trio’s (many) later line-ups out of the water. James Manning

'You Can’t Hurry Love' by The Supremes album cover
11. 'You Can’t Hurry Love' – The Supremes

Love don’t come easy, and nor do massive hits. But Berry Gordy’s Motown turned out so many timeless tunes that even the label’s two-and-a-half-hour jukebox musical couldn’t cram them all in. ‘You Can't Hurry Love’ stands tall in that lofty company, with a bouncing bassline that's been ripped off by every soul band ever and an impregnable sunshine melody that’s withstood savage attempts by Phil Collins and the Dixie Chicks. James Manning

'Love On Top' by Beyoncé album cover
10. 'Love On Top' – Beyoncé

There are many, many great Beyoncé tracks but ‘Love on Top’ is pop song perfection. It’s a retro-sounding track that hits the sweet spot between a ballad and uptempo number; taking the throwback vibes of classic Michael Jackson and giving them modern gloss. It’s impossible not to sing along, but thanks to a seemingly never-ending stream of key changes, it’s also impossible to actually sing it (unless you’re actually Beyoncé.) Kate Lloyd


'I Wanna Be Your Lover' by Prince album cover
9. 'I Wanna Be Your Lover' – Prince

When the boundless imagination of Prince Rogers Nelson suddenly vanished from the planet, an army of bereft devotees struggled to find one song to nail their (purple) colours to: a single track to sum up his genre-melting discography. ‘I Wanna Be Your Lover’ may be as close as we get. It’s a perfect track that brings together love, sex and longing, pop lightness and funk grooves, casuals and obsessives. Let’s rally round it and make it a pillar of Prince’s awe-inspiring legacy. James Manning


'Toxic' by Britney Spears album cover
8. 'Toxic' – Britney Spears

Bollywood strings, twangy surf guitar, a killer chorus and a video that features Britney as an air hostess: so, three great things and something you really don’t want to see when your 737 suddenly loses altitude. ‘Toxic’ was rejected by Kylie (what was she thinking?) and ended up as Britney’s peak: a sonic mish-mash with a lyric about addiction, it neatly previewed what lay ahead. Chris Waywell


'God Only Knows' by Beach Boys album cover
7. 'God Only Knows' – Beach Boys

You’ve probably heard this pop songs far too many times, but consider: there are vanishingly few songs where the isolated vocal track and the instrumental are incredible listens in their own right. This is one. The lush, symphonic pinnacle of Brian Wilson’s staggering career, it’s possibly the most perfect rendering of bittersweet love that’s ever been compressed into three minutes. God only knows what we’d be without it. James Manning


'Torn' by Natalie Imbruglia album cover
6. 'Torn' – Natalie Imbruglia

Beth from ‘Neighbours’ covers a four-year-old grunge song first recorded in Danish: it really doesn’t sound like a recipe for pure pop song gold. But a breezy guitar-strumming arrangement and Nat’s utterly sincere vocals catapulted ‘Torn’ into all-time classic status, transfiguring the Ednaswap original’s sludgy angst into a complex and grown-up sketch of post-breakup breakdown. Feel your heart leap when that soaring guitar outro hits. James Manning


'SOS' by ABBA album cover
5. 'SOS' – ABBA

Agnetha, Benny, Björn and Anni-Frid have earned a place in the pop song pantheon dozens of times over. So how do you pick their greatest song? In our book, it’s ‘SOS’: sheer heartache, fizzing synths, hauntingly downbeat vocals and not one but two unforgettable choruses back to back. It’s great because it’s the ABBA song you’re least likely to hear at a wedding reception. Except maybe ‘The Winner Takes It All’. James Manning


'Sorry' by Justin Bieber album cover
4. 'Sorry' – Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber has plenty to be sorry about, including (but not limited to) dangerous driving, pissing in a bucket in a restaurant, repeatedly using the N-word, saying Anne Frank ‘would have been a Belieber’ and not knowing what German is. Then he released this massive banger and made himself a twenty-first-century poster-boy for regret and humility, without actually having to apologise for anything. Well played, Biebs. Well played. James Manning


'Be My Baby' by The Ronettes album cover
3. 'Be My Baby' – The Ronettes

Bum, ba-bum BOOM! That opening drumbeat, the result of a dropped drumstick, is now legendary – but really ‘Be My Baby’ is all about Ronnie Spector’s vocal. It is sex, shiny liquid-hot latex for ears; she pours yearning and desire into each pulled syllable. Add to that backing vocals from Sonny and Cher and a band that, after 42 attempts, plays with all the pent-up excitement of a first date. Amy Smith


'I Wanna Dance With Somebody' by Whitney Houston album cover
2. 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody' – Whitney Houston

From the pristine electronic fuzz of the drum machine to the candy-coloured video and That Damn Voice, this isn’t just Whitney at her most peppy, but a pinnacle of ’80s pop. It ticks every box: punchy drums, shiny synth, bittersweet lyrics, a bit of staged laughing and the perfect singalong middle eight. When the backing singers go ‘somebody’, ain’t nobody can hold back that high-pitched ‘whoooooo!’ Amy Smith


'Call Me Maybe' by Carly Rae Jepsen album cover
1. 'Call Me Maybe' – Carly Rae Jepsen

Carly Rae Jepsen's 2015 album 'Emotion' is a modern classic, but she secured her place in pop song history three years earlier with this effervescent and devastatingly relatable earworm. "But here's my number, so call me maybe," she sings on the chorus, capturing in just eight words all the nervous excitement and feigned nonchalance of finally plucking up the courage to ask out your crush. If your chat-up lines were as good as this song, they'd always say yes. Nick Levine
