Quality Pop

As a spin-off from the Sugababes thread, Zoomerang gave me his blessing to take his idea for a pop thread and run with it.

"Pop" has a lot of different interpretations, and I don't want to limit what we're talking about here - but myself, I'm talking about what I like to call "Big Dumb Pop Songs."

Post your favorite songs and/or videos in this thread!

While I like some pop that comes out of the US, I've been discovering a lot of real quality stuff out of the UK. Which is great, but dang, paying import prices, even for used CDs, is killing me.

Here are a few of my favorites to kick it off:

Sugababes: Freak Like Me
*a mash-up of Adina Howard's R&B hit "Freak Like Me" and Gary Newman's "Are Friends Electric." It's AWESOME.



Who's That Girl



Rachel Stevens: Sweet Dreams My LA Ex



Girls Aloud: Wake Me Up

(I love these guys. Er, girls.)



Jamelia: Superstar




PS: Is YouTube the best thing ever, or what?

That That
you can pick between Patience and Rule the world
both work for me

and can't go wrong with quite a bit of Kylie
(though her latest single is not all that good)

Edit: I was working on this post when you were mentioning Kylie. Great pop minds think alike! I haven't heard much from Take That, but Back For Good is a great song.

Ha! I knew Zoot would pop in with something from the 90s.

I can't forget I forgot one of my favorites: KYLIE!

Love At First Sight:



Red Blooded Woman:



Your Disco Needs You (this song cracks me up - I love it!):

I'd never heard that Thicke song until Blake Lewis did it on American Idol last year - I immediately got it from iTunes. I love it!!

Emma Bunton (aka Baby Spice): Maybe



Margaret Berger: Samantha

Donna Lewis' I LOVE YOU ALWAYS FORVER has always enchanted me. Musically it's very U2, with Killen's input.

Spice Girls Say You'll Be There, 2 Become 1, Stop, Wannabe

Kylie is the greatest though: Put Yourself In My Place wasn't mentioned, and that's a cracker too, as is Some Kind Of Bliss

Ok, I've been a little hesitant to post this, but I'm going to anyways. As lame as it is to say, this is probably one of my favorite songs this year. Who else can make a song about getting a woman drunk at a club and then having sex with her seem so romantic and sweet? The video, as well as the song, has some unintentionally hilarious moments.

T-Pain - 'Buy U A Drank'
