Top 20 Singles

A list of the most popular songs in the last 20 years has been released. Nirvana's great teen anthem "Smells Like Teen spirit" came out first. The Gunners dropped to third, even though the song is much better than "Hey Ya!" by Outcast. I don't understand why there are not any songs by Michael Jackson or the Spice Girls on the list ("Wannabe", should have been a contender! - even though I hate the song myself) . I don't also understand how Oasis "live forever" got on the list as I would have thought that a better track would have been "Champagne Supernova", or "Wonderwall". I find it funny that some of the songs on the top twenty I have never heard of before, but maybe thats my bad! And as good as The White Stripes "7 Nation Army" is I don't think its one of the Top Twenty. One thing I'm happy is, the crazy frog did not claim a place on the list.

1. "Smells Like Teen Spirit"- Nirvana
2. "Hey Ya!" - Outkast
3. "Sweet Child O' Mine" - Guns N' Roses
4. "Unfinished Symphony" - Massive Attack
5. "One" - U2
6. "Live Forever" - Oasis
7. "Bitter Sweet Symphony" - The Verve
8. "Common People" - Pulp
9. "There She Goes" - The LA's
10. "7 Nation Army" - The White Stripes
11. "Song 2" - Blur
12. "Crazy" - Gnarls Barkley
13. "Angels" - Robbie Williams
14. "… Baby One More Time" - Britney Spears
15. "Personal Jesus" - Depeche Mode
16. "Like A Prayer" - Madonna
17. "Firestarter" - The Prodigy
18. "Brimful Of Asha" - Cornershop
19. "Stan" - Eminem
20. "I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor" - Arctic Monkeys
