20th FALLING DOWN 5.43



UK chart peak: N/A
US chart peak: #82
Highest score: 8 (all is vanity, Spadam, Tim, Jade, SamJudd)
Lowest score: 0 (blacksquare, Davidson, cqmerqn)

The first casulaty is Selena Gomez & The Scene's debut single, her first proper taste of a music career. I do really like this but I think it's about right, it's not a vintage song by her and is very of its time, although I do jam to the pop-rock vibes when I hear it. This had a few solid fans and a few hater but seemed mostly to get meh/middling scores.

I wasn't expecting her earlier rockier tracks to do too well here so I'll take that on the chin tongue.gif

I can't see anything other than 'Good For You' (deservedly) winning to be honest...interested in seeing how 'Bad Liar' and 'Fetish' fare so early on.

19th TRUST NOBODY 5.80



UK chart peak: #92
US chart peak: #106
Highest score: 9 (darkstar79)
Lowest score: 0 (cqmerqn)

Next up is a recent collab of Selena's, a Cashmere Cat on which she features with Tory Lanez. This was my lowest score in this rate, but still a 7 oops. I therefore think it's about in the right place, it's a good enough song for a random collab but not up there with her best.

18th ROUND AND ROUND 5.93



UK chart peak: #47
US chart peak: #24 (Platinum)
Highest score: 10 (Liam)
Lowest score: 1 (blacksquare)



WHAT THE f*** BUZZJACK. This isn't her ABSOLUTE best but I love this sad.gif I kind of get that the chorus is a bit repetitive and robotic, it could be more than it is from what you feel of the verses building. But this shouldn't be than a few that are above it.

Nothing worth crying over. Round & Round is better than I remembered though, but I wouldn't consider myself a fan before.

Her voice is not in its element in her more bubblegum pop sound. She sounds so much better in her ballads and mid tempos.

17th WHO SAYS 6.09



UK chart peak: #51
US chart peak: #21 (3x Platinum)
Highest score: 11 (Tim)
Lowest score:0 (blacksquare)

This was the lowest song to receive an 11, poor Tim </3 This guilty pleasure "just be yourself" anthem was a bit of a departure for Selena, being more acoustic and simple than her dance-pop bangers and pop-rock ventures. I feel this actually suited her voice a bit more, she doesn't have the best voice but there's something about it working on this sort of song. I can see why people might think this is basic, cringey or twee but I personally really like this.

Awww, I remember loving Who Says when I was in my early teens - I found it really uplifting at the time and now it's sort of stuck with me laugh.gif That, LYLALS and Naturally are my holy trinity of Selena & the Scene tracks, the rest can go to be honest heehee.gif

Round And Round has such a gratey and repetitive chorus :/ the lyrics aren't something I can enjoy either to be honest.

Who Says out already? sob.gif it's beautiful in every way. Damn you Buzzjackers! pirate.gif

'Falling Down' is probably my biggest loss here so far. I enjoyed Selena's debut album with The Scene way more than I was expecting to!

16th HIT THE LIGHTS 6.27



UK peak: N/A
US peak: #103 (Platinum)
Highest score: 10 (Harry)
Lowest score: 0 (blacksquare)

Yet another Scene single falls! This isn't m fave of the Scene songs, in fact it's probably only better than Falling Down but I do really like it still. It's a nice unassuming teeny sounding dance-pop banger, but this is a sound that she did much better in a more grown up/sexier way solo on songs like Undercover and Slow Down. This didn't set the charts alight position wise but thanks to streaming figures (the US also includes youtube for some reason), it did go Platinum in the US.

15th SAME OLD LOVE 6.47



Highest score: 11 (all is vanity, Lotti, NickF1, Tombo)
Lowest score -1 (Dobbo, Cremey, Tawdry Hepburn)
UK peak: #81 (Silver)
US peak: #6 (2x Platinum)


Easily the most marmite song in this rate, it received a lot of 11s and 10s as well as solid 8 or 9 scores but also a lot of lows, including three of you who deem it her absolute worst to the degree it warranted it -1 ohmy.gif I personally LOVE this, it could've been my 11 but then I had GFY, Hands To Myself and Come & Get It vying for it too, she's one of those artists whereI find it SO hard to pick just one fave, even when I split the Scene and her solo stuff. GFY-SOL-HTM is one of the best singles runs ever. I just love the vibe of this, it's sort of sassy and moody, but understated and unassuming rather than an in your face f*** you anthem. It's excellently written by Charli XCX and Stargate and should be like 10 places higher tbh.

'Same Old Love' is worse than green sick.

Yeah, 'Same Old Love' is borderline unlistenable/headache-inducing to me. The whole thing feels dated, completely lifeless and annoyingly repetitive with a strained, nasally, grating vocal. Undoubtedly her worst single (and as has been said, the most marked dip in quality between successive singles I've ever witnessed) so I'm pretty surprised it made the top 15, even with those 11s and its (inexplicable) US success!

No losses so far anyway. Though I quite liked 'Falling Down' having never heard it before the rate, so I guess that feels like an undeserving last placer~
