When I pick my most poptastic single of each year, I try to go for something that I know I’ll never regret when I look back on my choices in future years. Since this song was hated by many people, including those I usually agree with, I was unsure whether it was a safe choice, but in the end decided that was all the more reason to choose it. I’ve spent the last five months defending this song and I still love it as much as I did on first listen, so I’m going to stick with my decision and make a stand for this misunderstood pop masterpiece!
The No.1 Most Poptastic Single of 2011
CHER LLOYD – SWAGGER JAGGER!!!!
That’s Avril Lavigne’s skull on the floor
Released: 31st July
Writers: Cher Lloyd, Autumn Rowe, Jermaine Jackson, Andrew Harr, Petr Brdicko, Andre Davidson, Sean Davidson, Marcus Lomax, Clarence Coffee Jr.
Trivia: Not only has Cher released the best single of the year, but also the best album. Even those who hated Swagger Jagger have admitted that Sticks & Stones is amazing. Have a listen here.
Best bits: 1. Hiiii haters, kiss kiss, I’ll see you later
2. Swagger jagger, swagger jagger, you should get some of your own
3. Get on the floor!
Yes. Yes. Yes. Absolutely love this song. Definitely one of the best of the year. Excellent choice 😉
Thanks, glad you agree!
I thought it would be “Popular”. 🙁
I loved Eric's performances of Popular and it is a pretty good song, but I don't love it as much as his previous hits so it didn't make my top 25.
