16. Zara Larsson - Famous
Average Rating 5.92
Highest Rating 7.5 (George)
Lowest Rating: 5 (Lee, Nick)


15. Zara Larsson - When I'm Not Around
Average Rating 6.64
Highest Rating 7.5 (George)
Lowest Rating 6 (Doug, Nick)


Kicking start this countdown is the two target tracks which never made the album and listening to both I can completely understand why, When I'm Not Around is cute little bop but Famous on the other hand, to think of the amount of songs that have been scraped and this was her idea to put this on her target edition.

14. Zara Larsson - What Happens Here
Average Rating - 7.038 (Less 10's)
Lowest Scores - 5 (Bal, Tawdry)
Highest Score 8 (Andrew, Lee, Doug)




I'm not quite sure if I would give this an 8 as I would probably say that it's one of my least favourite tracks on Poster Girl now so I would say that #14 is probably a justified result. 'What Happens Here' is the final track of Poster Girl and despite it being a cute bop, it's probably the most forgettable song on the album.

No surprises so far! Those Target tracks were forgettable. Correct bottom place from the standard album too.

I think 'All The Time' & 'Look What You've Done' will be the top 2. Can't decide which one I think will win. 'Poster Girl' will be the next highest album track, whether that's 3 or 4 Idk.

Definitely the correct bottom place! Not surprised at the other two either, but there are still a couple of songs I think are worse than those laugh.gif

All pretty much what I expected so far. 'What Happens Here' is certainly a grower though I will say.

13. Zara Larsson - Talk About Love
Average Rating - 7.038 (more 10's)
cause honestly this aint the time or place - 3 (Tawdry)
i just wanna keep us right here in the moment 10 (Nickf1)




Finishing at number 13 at the countdown and lucky not to finish last is 'Talk About Love' which was the single to promote 'Poster Girl'. I think I was possibly a bit harsh when rating this because it's a nice track (especially the non rap version) but it's really not single material and I think this was the final nail in the coffin, the bridge in this is probably the best bridge she's ever done though, it's incredible. Commercially this did nothing and even missed the top 20 in Sweden.

12. Zara Larsson - WOW
Average Rating: 7.34
Make Your Jaw Drop (Nick, Doug)
I feel this way on chemicals -1 (Tawdry)




oh WOW, i was quite surprised to see this finish as low as #12 but the -1 really affected this. 'Wow' was originally released as a promo single following commercial use in America, the song had a massive resurge in USA following Work It! where it went top 20 on US Airplay and replaced 'Love Me Land' as a single and once again did nothing despite going top 3 on Shazam.

I'm not posting the video, i'm posting this performance which shows her stage presence, her vocals and just her being an icon. She deserves better.

I actually quite like these two!

Wow is SUCH a moment live so I will forever have a soft spot and I completely agree about the middle 8 on Talk About Love- it’s lush and that singalong section after the bridge! LOVE

I would quite happily never hear 'Talk About Love' again so happy to see it finish low. laugh.gif

'WOW' on the other hand has grown on my loads, especially since my last few listens of the album.

'Wow' is genuinely f***ing horrific (like just about everything Marshmello has ever been involved with)

11. Zara Larsson - Stick With You
Average Rating: 7.61
Highest Scorer: Nick
Lowest Scorer: Tawdry (4)




Finishing at #11 is 'Stick With You', don't get me wrong this is a very good song but I feel like we're automatically underwhelmed with this track because we expected an in your face pop anthem especially when she wrote the track with Max Martin and his team, it wasn't even written for another artist, they wrote it at Zara's house. I think we were all expecting a huge popstar moment so to be giving a slow ballad despite it being a nice track just felt a tad dissapointing.

10. Zara Larsson - Right Here
Average Rating 7.96
I could have two girls in a bed: Nick (10)
I wouldn't even get your attention: LmLou 3.5


I could be naked at dinner
And touching the waiter
The baddest behavior
I could be naked, naked, naked, naked, naked, naked




How on earth did this finish as low as #10? Fun fact, 'Right Here' has a music video filmed (high budget apparently) as it was between this or 'Love Me Land' for the single. I really hope that we see the video because the song itself is a fun, upbeat, energetic song and I can imagine this going OFF live. I don't think it deserves to be anywhere near as low as this though.

09. Zara Larsson - Ruin My Life
Average Rating: 8.3 I want you to f*** up my nights (Frenchie 11)
Now i'm sleeping alone and I'm starting to freeze: Tawdry (1)




The way this would have been top 4 had it not been for Tawdry's rate of 1. I struggle to see what's so bad about 'Ruin My Life'? It was Zara's last top 10 UK chart hit and was the last single that was pushed everywhere. I get that it can be a bit underwhelming and repetitive but it's easily in my top 10 Zara songs, the Live performances are incredible, especially the dance break and the added chorus. I MISS YOU YEH I MISS YOU, COME BACK TO MEEEEEE.

Pleased to see RML finish that low!

Not so pleased to see 'Right Here' that low though. sad.gif That's pretty outrageous.

I really can’t click with Right Here at all- it might be the worst on the album for me oops!

Ruin My Life is one of my favourites though and just a beautiful little pop number!

Yeah Right Here is a bit of a filler for me.

Stick With You is definitely a grower wub.gif
