Inspired by Midge's thread discussing #1's of this current decade which songs that peaked in the top 10 between #2 - #10 would you say are forgotten, undeserving of their top 10 status and caused a surprise when it achieved a peak of that nature or in hindsight looking back a few years later?


This would be some of my suggestions:

Forgotten Top 10's
Inna - Hot
Ben Pearce - What I Might Do
Alyssa Reid ft Jump Smokers - Alone Again
Foxes - Let Go For Tonight


Surprising Top 10's
Redlight - Lost In Your Love
Krept & Konan ft Jeremih - Freak Of The Week
Ten Walls - Walking With Elephants

For the underserving top 10 hits it'd have to be any song that got into the top 10 because of ACR or whatever it's called.

Forgotten top 10s:

- Charlie Brown - On My Way
- McLean - My Name
- Mike Mago & Dragonette - Outlines
- Sway - Level Up

I have absolutely no recollection of how 'Outlines' goes at all and it was only 3 years ago laugh.gif

Yeah Let Go For Tonight is used on shows like BGT all the time, I'd say that one's actually reasonably well remembered!

A couple of suggestions from me:

Loveable Rogues - What a Night
Marcus Collins - Seven Nation Army
John Martin - Anywhere For You

'Hot' is always one of my go-to songs for the summer btw! *.* that and 'Stereo Love' were the first couple of songs I thought of when compiling a playlist a couple of weeks ago when the sun came out. A shame that's a bit forgotten, I'm sure people would recognise it if it came on (well, my mum did anyway *_*) but yeah, I imagine lots wouldn't be able to recall the Inna - 'Hot' artist and title combination.

Who cares if they were not well remembered, couple of you have just reminded me of some banging tracks. Anywhere For You and Outlines are quality.

Thats true about the artist/title combination, I imagine if people heard the song, a lot would not be able to identify the title.

I was the same when I made my summer playlist! Most of summer 2010 music brings so many memories!

DJ Cassidy - Calling All Hearts

This was SO bad laugh.gif

That 'Anywhere For You' song also sprung to mind for me - and I haven't got the slightest idea how 'Outlines' goes. 'On My Way' was one of the songs of 2013 thooo wub.gif

Matrix & Futurebound feat. Max Marshall - Control
Sub Focus feat. Alex Clare - Endorphins

^ another couple. The former actually spent three weeks in the top 10 and only six weeks in the entire top 40 mellow.gif

I still listen to You Took My Heart quite a lot laugh.gif it was very Adele just before she came back bigger than ever.

Adore the John Martin song, Iíve always found it very near as euphoric as Donít You Worry Child!

Iíll offer up any of Angelís multiple No.9 hits, Show Me Love (America) by The Wanted and Do It All Over Again by Elyar Fox.

'Freak of the Week' wasn't a surprise Top10 for me! It was bang on-trend and received heavy airplay. Still a regular during R&B sections of DJ sets.

'Level Up' is a great shout, haven't heard that in years. Sway had so much better (Still Speedin' for one).

A more thought provoking question is what Top 10s are/will be forgotten since OA/OS and streaming became widespread?

Think 'River' is definitely one.

Songs that got into the top 10 through luck or narrowly scraped into the top 10 by a very close margin on sales. Or songs that got into the top 10 because another song lower in the chart did not have a full 7 days to accumulate sales in a particular week. Or it could be songs that have not made as big of an impact in the long term as most top 10 hits. It's all objectively speaking of course!
