What are the best pop songs ever written?

The melody, the economy, the discipline.

I'll start:

SOS- ABBA

Verdigris - 22 Mar 2020 02:08:02 (#2 of 192)

Do you know the way to San Jose?

Macpaddy - 22 Mar 2020 02:16:34 (#3 of 192)

A Day in the Life. Hey Jude. You've Lost that Loving Feeling. ( too hard to separate them)

I could easily find another ten contenders.

So What - Anti Nowhere League

You Can Call Me Al

Ebadlun - 22 Mar 2020 02:49:56 (#6 of 192)

Don't You Want Me

Always Something There To Remind Me (plus any number of Bacharach/David ones)

Ebadlun - 22 Mar 2020 02:50:44 (#7 of 192)

I'm Too Sexy - it really spoke to me as someone whose overwhelming sexiness is simply debilitating.

Ebadlun - 22 Mar 2020 02:54:31 (#8 of 192)

Modern examples are few and far between, but I would suggest:

New Rules - Dua Lipa

Into You - Ariana Grande

as tightly-written little gems.

Ebadlun - 22 Mar 2020 02:55:47 (#9 of 192)

Still Crazy After All These Years might be the best song of the 70s.

sloanepeterson - 22 Mar 2020 09:54:11 (#10 of 192)

I Want You Back, Take On Me and Together In Electric Dreams are all perfect.

Moschops - 22 Mar 2020 10:01:43 (#11 of 192)

She Bangs The Drum

Moschops - 22 Mar 2020 10:02:06 (#12 of 192)
