Now that he's got his official TENTH UK #1 single it's about time we ranked them all.

1 We Found Love [FAVE]
2 One Kiss
3 I'm Not Alone
4 Sweet Nothing
5 Feels
6 Promises
7 Under Control
8 Blame
9 Summer
10 Dance Wiv Me [LEAST FAVE]

'We Found Love' will always be Calvin's signature song I think, it's as much his song as it is Rihanna's and it's him at his very best, though 'One Kiss' does come close. I'd put 'Promises' in 6th for now, still very solid but not quite as good as quite a few of his others. 'Dance Wiv Me' is very much my least fave here, a good song still but not one I revisit all that often.

INA is incredible. Soooo happy it was his first solo #1! I think I actually prefer WFL as a song, but I always think of that as Rihanna's song so Calvin's name never comes up for me.

'Sweet Nothing' is my least fave, coz Florence etc..

I'm Not Alone is the superior single here although to be honest it didn't age too well~

One Kiss is way too overrated goodbye

I was quite surprised to see 'Blame' come out on top here, but it is. I'm just a sucker for that sound. wub.gif

so odd as to which of his singles made Number 1 and which didn't - it's really not representative of all his best songs! This current era has signs of being his best yet though, LOVE both Promises and One Kiss - great to see the former hitting the top spot!

5. Dance Wiv Me
6. Blame
7. Feels
8. Iím Not Alone
9. Under Control
10. Summer

"Under Control" is by far the song that sticks out as reaching #1 due to Calvin's name and the reputation he'd built up in the 2 years prior to its release. I do like it but can't remember the last time I even heard it.

I only really love the top 4/5 here. I far prefer "Outside", "How Deep Is Your Love", "I Need Your Love" and "Pray to God", amongst others, to the rest of his #1s.

1. Dance Wiv Me (feels out of place among this lot, but I've always loved it, Calvin's contributions very much valued)
2. I'm Not Alone
3. Sweet Nothing
4. Feels
5. Promises
6. One Kiss (might age well, a bit sick of hearing it at the moment)
7. We Found Love
8. Under Control
9. Blame
10. Summer (heard it again recently and the drop had some merit in hindsight but it's a chore to sit through)

01 We Found Love
02 Iím Not Alone
03 Sweet Nothing
04 Blame
05 One Kiss
06 Dance Wiv Me
07 Feels
08 Promises
09 Under Control
10 Summer

Incredible set of #1s. Top two are both 11/10. Under Control and Summer I didn't think too much of at the time of their release but they've been growing on me recently! I think One Kiss and Promises have a chance to climb these rankings seeing as they're both still current. It's crazy to think there's only two years between I'm Not Alone and We Found Love!

01. I'm Not Alone
02. We Found Love
03. Summer
04. Under Control
05. One Kiss
06. Feels
07. Promises
08. Dance Wiv Me
09. Sweet Nothing
10. Blame

Close between the top 2, otherwise fairly easy to rank. I still love the top 5, Feels and Promises are decent (the latter only having one listen so far), Dance Wiv Me has dated terribly, Have never been able to get into Sweet Nothing and it pales next to the glorious Spectrum and Blame is DIRE mainly thanks to John Newman's hoarse vocals.

What's all this hate for Summer? sad.gif I have very fond memories of that and his voice <3
