And the no.1 most poptastic single of 2010 is…

It was very difficult to decide this year’s no.1 as the whole top 15 were very close and could easily be in a different order if I did this chart again next week. For that reason I have chosen a song which will always remind me of 2010 and shows that however great the obscure pop gems we seek out can be, nothing beats a proper career-defining pop moment like this one…

The No.1 Most Poptastic Single of 2010

Lady GaGa ft. Beyoncé – Telephone

Released: 15th March (UK)
Trivia: GaGa is the first artist to ever be awarded the title of most poptastic single of the year more than once! Just Dance was no.1 in 2008, a year I spent obsessed with GaGa, trying to persuade people to listen to her cos she was “so underrated” – seems a very distant memory now! She could have even won it three years running but I was in a grump with her last year for being so irritating (I like her music much more than I like her) so only put Bad Romance at no.23. The most bizarre fact about this song is that the first time I heard it was on the radio. Yep, the RADIO! You’d think it was the 90s or something.
Best bits: 1. I shoulda left my phone at home ‘cos this is a disas-tuh!
2. I’m biz-ZAY!
3. Stop calling, stop calling, I don’t wanna think anymore, I left my head and my heart on the dancefloor
