33. Gwen Stefani - Spark The Fire = Avg.[3.738]

Highest Rates: 7 [Acidburn, Riser]
Lowest Rates: 0/-1 [Mr Aly, Liam, Cremey, Dandystar]


32. Gwen Stefani (Ft Pharrell Williams) - Can I Have It Like That = Avg.5.181

Highest Rates: 10 [Mack]
Lowest Rates: -1 [Heezus Froot]


So starting off our countdown is Gwen's most recent comeback flop "Spark The Fire", released in December 2014 and taken as the so far 2nd single from her third yet to be released album. Which to be honest doesn't seem to be going very well, her previous single "BDL" wasn't a big hit either, but at least that managed to chart in several countries, this however was a total bomb, it didn't chart anywhere and was panned by pretty much everyone upon release. Even Buzzjack hated it with it's terrible average of 3, and the highest score it got was 7, 18 of them were 5 or under, and this was the only song not to score over a 100 points, despite 22 rates.

Next up at #32 with a much higher average is "Can I Have It Like That" another Pharrell production, only this time it's one of his own, taken from his debut album "In My Mind" and released in October 2005, making this her 4th single released that year and became a success in the UK by peaking at #3, but was unsuccessful in the USA by reaching #49. Not one of the finer moments from either artist to be honest, a very generic R&B number which I pretty much forgot about until this rate.

31. No Doubt - Hey You = Avg.[5.775]

Highest Rates: 8 [Atonement], 7 [Liam, West, Riser]
Lowest Rates: 4 [Auron87, Jark, Mach Kauto]

At #31 is the first of the No Doubt singles to drop is "Hey You", released in February 1998 as the final single from their 3rd album "Tragic Kingdom" in Netherlands only and also final to feature the band's original keyboardist Eric Stefani, who joined them in 1994. The music video was a live performance from their "Live In The Tragic Kingdom" concert and was directed by Sophie Muller and released only in that country where it was a minor hit by peaking at #51.

30. Gwen Stefani (Ft Slim Thug) - Luxurious = Avg.[5.833]

Highest Rates: 11 [Nick F1], 9 [Liam]
Lowest Rates: -1 [Mr Aly]


At #30 is another Gwen Stefani solo effort to drop "Luxurious", released in October 2005 and taken as the 5th single from her debut album "Love Angel Music Baby" and contains a sample of The Isley Brothers 1983 song "Between The Sheets", and was also remixed for it's single release to feature rapper Slim Thug. It was also one of two songs from the album written and produced with Tony Kanal whose the bassist from No Doubt. The song performed quite well in the USA by reaching #21, but elsewhere it didn't perform as well as the previous singles, especially in the UK where it missed the top 40, peaking at #44 her first to miss the top 20. It managed top 10 peaks in Finland and Canada, top 20 in New Zealand, then top 40 peaks in Australia, Netherlands, Italy, Ireland and Swiss. This was the last worldwide single from the album, the follow up was released only in the USA.

29. Gwen Stefani - Now That You Got It (Ft Damien Marley) = Avg.[5.909]

Highest Rates: 11 [Heezus Froot], 9 [American Oxygen]
Lowest Rates: 0 [Griff]


At #29 is Gwen Stefani's "Now That You Got It", released in October 2007 as the 4th single from her 2nd album "The Sweet Escape". In it's original album form the track received mixed to negative reviews, but when it was remixed to feature Damian Marley for the single version, it received praise and gave the track a more reggae feel, but it didn't translate into chart success by becoming her first solo hit to not chart at all in the USA, or any of the other charts there. Elsewhere it bombed in the UK by limping at #59, due to lack of promo or interest. It managed a top 20 peak in Norway and top 40 peaks in New Zealand, Italy and Australia.

28. No Doubt - Running = Avg.[6.4]

Highest Rates: 11 [Nick F1], 10 [Cremey]
Lowest Rates: 1 [Heezus Froot], 2 [fgiboy2511]


At #28 is No Doubt with "Running" released in July 2003 as the 4th and final single from their 5th album "Rock Steady", it didn't match the album's previous successful singles by peaking at #62 in the USA, the only single not to reach the top 20 there. It wasn't given a full worldwide release and the only other country it charted in was Germany where it reached #55. It did have some okay scores on here with a 11 and a 10, a couple of 9's, but several low scores at the beginning and middle which it was unable to recover from.

27. No Doubt - Excuse Me Mr = Avg.[6.425]

Highest Rates: 9 [Kellyann], 8.5/8 [West, Jark, Frank]
Lowest Rates: 3 [Kylie Jackson, Mack Kauto]


At #27 is No Doubt's "Excuse Me Mr" which featured on their breakthrough album "Tragic Kingdom" and later on their Greatest Hits album. Released in August 1996 as the follow up to "Don't Speak" in some countries, and charted best in New Zealand by peaking at #11. There are two versions of this song, one with country and folk influences and another in punk rock, but producer preferred the former, while the band preferred the latter, but it ended up getting lost in a studio accident and they chose to re-record the punk version, while the country version still remains unreleased.

26. Gwen Stefani (Ft Moby) - South Side = Avg.[6.447]

Highest Rates: 10 [West, Heezus Froot]
Lowest Rates: 3 [Fgiboy2511, Kellyann]


At #26 is Gwen Stefani's first ever solo effort "South Side" which features Moby and released in October 2000 as the 8th single from his album "Play", although Gwen's vocals doesn't appear on the album version itself due to production problems, but was re-recorded for it's single release and became a success on the USA charts by reaching #14, becoming his biggest and only song to chart to date, and was Gwen's first taste of solo success, it charted better in Canada by reaching #3, but wasn't given a release outside of those countries and remains one of her least known solo releases to date.

25. No Doubt - Looking Hot = Avg.[6.5]


Highest Rates: 9 [West, Heezus Froot, Cremey]
Lowest Rates: 2 [Kylie Jackson]


At #25 we have No Doubt's most recent single "Looking Hot", released in November 2012 as the 2nd and final single from their 6th album "Push And Shove" and became their least successful single by limping into the UK charts at #397, despite a performance on X Factor. Originally the title track was thought to be the 2nd single due to it having a music video, but they decided upon this instead.

24. Gwen Stefani - Wind It Up = Avg.[6.727]

Highest Rates: 11 [Cremey], 10 [Henderella, Liam]
Lowest Rates: -1 [West, Griff]


At #24 is Gwen Stefani's "Wind It Up" released in October 2006 as the lead single from her 2nd album "The Sweet Escape" and caused quite a stir, the critics hated it and fans didn't know what to make of it and Gwen became inspired by her favourite film "The Sound Of Music" for this song and even asked DJ Jeremy Healy to create a mash up with this and "The Lonely Goatheard", and when she heard it she loved it, but her co-writer Pharrell Williams hated the mash up and yodelling. Despite the reception the song became a big success by topping the New Zealand charts and hitting top 5 in UK, Netherlands and Australia, as well as top 10 peaks in Finland, Italy, Belgium, Norway, USA and Ireland, then top 20 mostly everywhere else.

23. Gwen Stefani - Crash = Avg.[6.761]

Highest Rates: 10 [Acidburn, Kylie Jackson, Nick F1]
Lowest Rates: 1 [Mack Kauto]


At #23 is Gwen Stefani's "Crash" which was released in January 2006 as the 6th and final single from her debut album "Love Angel Music Baby", although not originally planned as a single, but she decided upon this due to her pregnancy which would delay the release of her 2nd album and decided to give the fans something while they wait for new material. The song was only given a USA release and success was limited due to the album already been out a year and sold bucket loads, this managed to peak at #49 on the Billboard charts, becoming the album's sixth entry on the top 50 and hung around for 8 weeks, and plus promo was also limited due there being only a live concert performance was used as the music video.

I used to love Crash, but now I find it kind of tuneless. I still enjoy the verses and bridge mind you. But that chorus is just shouting.

'Crash' aside, the rest of the last five should've been much higher! Four of my favourites.
The 'Looking Hot' video being removed was so ridiculous, no wonder it wasn't a hit anywhere. I doubt the video would've made that much difference but still!

...when I said last 5 I was including Running and not Excuse Me Mr.

Genuinely surprised Wind It Up has left so early! I absolutely adore it. So barmy, great production and just perfect for Gwen.

I heard this just a couple of days ago and thought the same. It's good but doesn't seemed to have aged well for me as I used to adore it!

22. No Doubt - Spiderwebs = Avg.[7.025]

Highest Rates: 10 [Jark, Riser]
Lowest Rates: 4 [Mr Aly, Aphrodite, Mack Kauto]


At #22 is No Doubt's "Spiderwebs" released in November 1995 and taken as the 2nd single from their album "Tragic Kingdom".

21. No Doubt - Sunday Morning = Avg.[7.15]

Highest Rates: 10 [West]
Lowest Rates: 4 [Fgiboy2511]


Just outside the top 20 is another No Doubt single "Sunday Morning", released in May 1997 as the 5th and final single from their "Tragic Kingdom" album, (and now leaving only the 2 well known ones in the running). Composing for this song began when band member Tony Kanal was having a fight with Gwen Stefani, through the bathroom door of his parents house, but Gwen later changed the lyrics to discuss their breakup instead. The song wasn't as successful as the album's previous singles by failing to reach top 20 anywhere, the highest was a #21 peak in Australia and also top 40 in Canada. In the UK it was released as the 4th single and missed the top 40 by peaking at #50.
