  1. I love your chart! Alphabeat, Agnes, Gaga and Mini Viva! I totally forgot about the Kid Cudi track, Crooker remix is way better than the US release.

    • rc, thanks so much. We have a bit of overlap, and in looking at your list, I realize I forgot Sophie and Freemasons. Oops!

      • I’ve been a big fan of Sophie since “Murder”. Heartbreak is great. Too bad it didn’t generate much buzz in the chart. So, are you going to edit your chart? LOL. Thanks for stopping by.

      • The chart stands…I edited the order (and even added in a song) up to 10 minutes before pulling the trigger. At some point you have to let go.

  2. I’m so glad that there’s other people out there who have love for V Factory. There’s nothing in that track that doesn’t scream at least modest hit…I guess the US just already got their fill of boy bands. It’s still a shame though. Fingers crossed for ’10. And Gaga’s Top 5 for you! Yay!

    I always love your charts – you remind me of things I forgot about, things I adore, and things I should be listening to. Kudos! And Happy New Year!

    • Mel, your chart did the same for me. BTW, it was Janet that you jogged my memory on. Album chart is on the way next. Happy New Year to you, too!

  3. Wow Alphabeat #1, awesome, shame i didn’t play it as much as i should cuase i have a feeling it would’ve been a bigger single for me. Btw Boyfriend was a #1 for me this year (yes a bit late) and makes my top 100 wish should be posted in the next 48 hours!
    Also yay to PSB, Gossip, BEP, Mika, Lily and of course Miss Gaga!

    • Looking forward to seeing your list as well. And “Boyfriend” deserves credit, no matter which year it gets it.

  4. Good stuff here! Blake, Mini Viva (charted way high on your chart – you go mang!), PSB. Bruthas from another mutha for sure. Alphabeat too. Wow @ #1.

    • My love for the ‘beat never let up this year, so it was no surprise to me. Of the whole chart, that was the only given from early on, my brutha!

  5. I love “I Wish”! It’s such an improvement on that shitty Tokyo song.

    It’s also nice to see Cascada and the BEP get some love.

    Intriguing list. There are quite a few songs that I’ll be downloading ASAP to check out.

    • Glad you saw some stuff you want to check out. For once, I get to return the favor after all of your pop excavations.

  6. “Evacuate the Dancefloor” nearly made my list, but ultimately I put something else in its place (can’t recall what right off.) That song was trashy and over the top but it was oh-so-good as well.

    It reminds me of a post I always want to do – “songs that sound better when you’re at a pool…” – that “Heaven” remake from a few years back tops that particular list, but I think ETD would survive the final cut as well. 😉

    • That is a brilliant idea! You need to run with that! Any Cascada song (I’m thinking “Everytime We Touch”) would work for that.
