Oh gosh I take back what I said about 2010-2019 being the decade of improved music!
If Ke$ha "tik tok" is in the top 5, then... I change my decade prediction to 2011-2020.
Katy Perry doesn't exactly help too much, either.
Firework - bad vocals. California Gurls - poor lyrical content and wording arrangement. Her best release from this album was "teenage dream", which, for some reason, seems to be getting "drowned out" by the other two. "I kissed a girl" was definitely her best.
I-Tunes #1 most downloaded song of 2010 is Hey Soul Sister by Train
As far as Atlanta radio,
The #1 song of 2010 on Q100 is Breakeven by The Script
The #1 song of 2010 on Star 94 is Hey Soul Sister by Train
The #1 song of 2010 on Wild 96.7 is Airplanes by B. O. B.
The #1 song of 2010 on WVEE is Unthinkable by Alicia Keys
The #1 song of 2010 on WHTA is Go Shorty Go by Travis Porter
I'd pick any... ok, most of those songs over tik tok for top song of the year deserving quality.
Anyway, I heard that Justin Bieber has the number one most viewed video of 2010 - and his song, "baby", which is what earned that spot, I also consider to be more quality than "tik tok". I think Ke$ha's best songs were
1. We R who we R, and
2. Right round (w/ Flo Rida).
