It has been a surprisingly very close call but I can now announce that your winner is...

01. Titanium [w/ Sia] [20 votes, 54.05%]



"Titanium" was released in 2011 as a promotional single from Nothing But The Beat, but it was so well received that the following year it got a single push and eventually reached #1 in the UK. It is his most successful song ever here, having also charted at #31 in the chart of the decade. It is also certified 3x Platinum. The song was co-produced by Afrojack, and the lyrics written by Sia. The song was sent to Mary J. Blige to sing, however after listening to Sia and Mary's takes on the song David chose to keep Sia's original vocal, intended as a demo.

Commiserations to...

02. Love Don't Let Me Go (Walking Away) [w/ The Egg] [17 votes, 45.95%]



"Love Don't Let Me Go (Walking Away)" was released in 2006 and was David's first UK top 10 hit peaking at #3, helped by the song featuring in an advert for the Citroën C4. The track was a mash-up, taking the vocal of David's 2002 single "Love Don't Let Me Go" (sang uncredited by Chris Willis) and the instrumental of Tocadisco's remix of The Egg's "Walking Away". Tocadisco and David would later collab on "Tomorrow Can Wait" for David's Pop Life album. This track also featured on the album as a bonus track.

Thanks to everyone who voted.
What do you all make of the result and who should get their singles survivor next?
I'm very pleased with this winner, as predictable as it may seem it really is his best song and he won't ever top it.

thanks for running this, shame The Egg didn't win - even if I love Sia (at least from pre-Guetta era), I think The Egg song is much better in terms of production and uniqueness

Shocked that that got to #2 - I would've happily knocked it out in the first round. Kelly being down at #4 also surprises me.

I was hoping for a win for Love Don't Let Me Go (Walking Away) but it was always the underdog against Titanium.

We did very well to make a contest out of this when historically everything Guetta-related results in a Titanium landslide.

Thanks for this Dan, onto the next one!

It is his best though, regardless of how overplayed or a predictable winner it is.

I think it's an overall, greatly produced package and it has a glorious drop!

The fact 'When Love' isn't even top 3 and 'Dangerous' is is kinda laughable imo

'Titanium' is a little overrated but it's still very good so can't complain at it winning, I'm happy 'Love Don't Let Me Go (Walking Away)' made it this far (and was competitive even in the final) despite it attracting a few votes pretty early into the competition! Still his best song and safe to say he'll never top it for me.
