Here’s a list I’ve compiled of songs that I consider Modern Classics, songs that have affected me in more ways than one. Some of them are known and are already hits, and others are not as known, but nevertheless, they’re all exquisite in their own way.
Breathe (2 AM) – Anna Nalick
I consider this one of the first english songs I loved, and I still never get bored of listening to it, there is something about this song that never fails to amaze me, no matter how many times I hear it, it’s always moving.
Everytime – Britney Spears
I hate Britney ballads, they’re never perfect, she’s never on pitch, and always breathy. But in here, it’s flawless, her best ballad, and she will never ever top it.
Toy Soldier – Britney Spears
Her best uptempo song since Slave/Toxic.
Ace Reject – Sugababes
This is Sugababes at their best, this song has the Xenomania stamp all over it, it’s a perfect pop-dance-ballad. It’s my favorite song of their whole shifty career.
For The Record – Mariah Carey
Def Jam, L.A. Reid, Mariah Carey, and everyone involved with the E=MC2 project should be bitch-slapped for not releasing this “masterpiece” as a single.
Call The Shots – Girls Aloud
Their best single, enough.
Take A Bow – Leona Lewis
Why this wasn’t released as a single is beyond me, seriously. It wipes the floor with Rihanna’s song of the same name.
Can’t Let Go – Linda Kiraly
I will be posting this song for as long as I live. It’s a Darkchild produced song, with brilliant vocal delivery from Ms. Linda. Why isn’t this a hit? stupid Americans.
Feedback – Janet Jackson
Hate on her as much as you’d like, but no one can deny that this song in particular is one of the modern classics that happens once every blue moon. It’s Janet’s return to form [not sound-wise, but creativity-wise], it peaked at #19 on the B. Hot 100, which in my opinion is still not enough.
Fighter – Christina Aguilera
Saving the best for last.
