    "Hey Ya" entered the wedding reception pantheon like five years ago. It hits the broadest demographic of listeners. Easy choice for me.

    What's "Take Me Out"?



    "Sexyback" Justin Timberlake feat. Timbaland, and "The Way I Are" Timbaland would be my picks, but I'm going to vote for Missy.

    Oh, gotcha. That is a fun song.



    Also, "Get Ur Freak On" remix with Nelly Fertado > original.

    Why Single Ladies isn't on this list is beyond me.

    This is exactly the kind of moronic dribbling I was afraid this poll would generate.

    99 Problems is pop because it was popular. Pop. popular. got it?

    Was 99 problems really that popular? It had a controversial video that MTV wouldn't show which killed its buzz. I don't even think it was a top 25 single.

    Also, the 10 songs on the list are the #1 singles on the Village Voice Pazz & Jop Poll for every year from 2001 to 2010. The Pazz & Jop Poll is a poll of hundreds of critics nationwide each year. Seemed like a good (i.e., relatively objective) starting point. Whining that your favorite song isn't on the list is pointless idiotic blather.

    99 Problems hit #30 on the charts. The poll is not "which song is the most popular".

    "Single Ladies" became a commercial success in the United States, as it peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and has been certified quadruple-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), having sold over 4.2 million digital downloads.[1] It was successful internationally; "Single Ladies" reached the top ten on the singles charts of Australia, Brazil, Canada, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Spain and the United Kingdom, and achieved multi-platinum certifications in many of these countries. As of November 2009, "Single Ladies" had sold over 6.1 million copies worldwide.[2]

    Eh, I instantly recognized the 10 songs on Tom's list.

    EDIT* Then again, my question about radio play was silly since I don't listen to the radio ever. /Hipster.

    I can't believe I actually know most of these songs.

    Good poll btw. I had a bit of a struggle with this one.

    Chorus to 'Empire State of Mind' got incredibly old, incredibly fast. That JT song with "I wanna rock your body all the way" is probably the one, but I can't remember the title. Shows how much I'm into pop music.

    'Get your freak on' was used well in Boat Trip. Underrated movie. But pop music is generally so temporary.

    "Get Ur Freak On" edges out "Paper Planes" just enough for me. "Crazy In Love" would be a serious contender if that made the list as well.
