    4. Fuck You ( but not Forget You, so don’t know if that counts)
    5. Cooler Than Me
    6. Animals ( Neon Trees)
    7. Secrets

    Least Favorites:

    1. Mine ( no explanation needed)
    2. Misery ( this song put me in it)
    3. Dynamite ( Who the hell besides Jimmy Walker says Dynamite?)
    4. Riding Solo ( I hate how bratty he sounds when he says” riding solo”
    5. Love Like Whoa ( No. I don’t have a love like whoa, do you?)
    6. Kissin U ( Your senses come alive Miranda? Really? Do you even know what that means?)

  2. planetangst ( Studio57) says:

    Ooh- and I have to add three songs that are not in top 40 that I love right now:

    Bow Chicka Wow- Mike Posner
    Bang Bang- K’naan and Adam Levine
    Spacebound- Eminem-

    I love lists!

    • mariettejb says:

      Spacebound is my favourite album track of the Eminem cd!

      I somehow looked over Kissing U. I actually like that one less than Magic. My new #10 least favourite.

      • planetangst ( Studio57) says:

        Who is singing the chorus on Spacebound? Is it Em? Because I cannot find who it features.

        It’s like a modern day Rocketman.

        Do you like Won’t Back Down with Pink? I am really, really shocked at how much I am loving this new album of his. I loved him at first but then he got too damn nasty. It’s like he has really matured with this album.

    Fun! If I pick faves based on what I have downloaded that’s on Top 40, then my faves are:

    TIO (sorta–I bought it in January and I’m sick of it now that it’s on the radio)
    Like A G6
    Fuck You (don’t like the radio edits however).

    I also really like DJ Got Us Fallin Love and Round and Round, even though I haven’t bought them. Yet.

    The songs I dislike most are:

    Just The Way You Are
    Ridin’ Solo
    Half Of My Heart
    That Script song
    U Smile
    Only Exception

    I don’t listen much to the more HAC leaning stuff on top40 (like Paramore, Neon Trees, The Script and 1R) or the Disney stuff but they don’t irritate me as much as bad dance music.

    Favorite recent hits

    Bulletproof – La Roux
    Bad Romance – Lady Gaga (my favorite Gaga single)
    Sexy Bitch – David Guetta

    Most hated songs of the past months

    Imma Be – B.E.P.
    O.M.G. – Usher
    Breakeven – The $cript

    ….and I wanna add a seperate category lol

    Favorite flops

    Beautiful Monster – Ne-yo
    Can’t Be Tamed – Miley Cyrus (yeah, yeah I know…Miley)
    Russian Roulette – Rihanna (is this considered to be a flop?)

    • samantha says:

      I wanted to put Bad Romance (also my favorite Gaga single) on my favorites list, but figured that I bent the rules enough with Tik Tok. LOL

      O.M.G. would come right after Ridin’ Solo on my all-time least favorites.

      I actually kind of like Breakeven — like the lyrics — but not enough to put it on my iPod.

      We owe Miley Cyrus for our IIHY mantra: WE CAN’T BE TAMED!!!

  11. saga says:

    OHHHHHH… recent good hits? I liked Alejandro actually (mor than Bad Romance, hah!).


    Sexy Chick
    I Gotta Feeling
    Tik Tok
    Whatya Want From Me
    Russian Roulette
    Run This Town
    Use Somebody
    Sex on Fire
    Can’t Be Tamed
    Watcha Say
    Empire State of Mind
    If We Ever Meet Again
    Dead and Gone

  12. jtfacts says:

    Ziz, I agree with all your recent faves (except I might love Poker Face a smidge more than Bad Romance) and 2/3 of your recent dislikes, except I’d swap out Imma Be for Bedrock.

    And saga, I love love love Empire State of Mind–none of the rapper/female singer collabs have matched that imo.

    I also loved Tik Tok, Circus, Evacuate the Dancefloor and Fireflies and disliked I Gotta Feeling, Boom Boom Pow , Hard and Use Somebody (originally I didn’t mind it but it got so played to death I can’t bear to hear a single note of it now).
