Am I the only one who prefer Genesis over Oblivian? :?

Thank God they didn't include Rihanna "Work feat. Drake". The song is overrated and I hate it :angry-banghead:

Perfect choice for No.1 but their No. 5 is probably the worst song of the decade

Six Kanye songs and the lowest is ranked #53. That’s dominance.

I like pop music, but this list exaggerated a bit, I prefer the P4k list.
BUT there are a lot of cool songs on the list.

Your Best American Girl Doing Well on All Lists

Ariel Pink is apparently no longer an "album artist"...I hope this is not confirmed with the next lists

I like this list more than I thought I would; there are some interesting picks especially in the second half of the list. While it's pop-heavy at the top, I like many of the specific tracks they highlighted.
