Top 20 singles for 2009 – Part II

January 1, 2010

Lots to celebrate today:

This is The Ton’s 100th post!

It’s a new year/decade.

The Top Ten singles on The Ton chart can be revealed. (Click here for 11-20)

10. BREAKEVEN – The Script

The countdown kicks off with a touch of the Irish. (4 weeks on #1)

9. MILLION DOLLAR BILL – Whitney Houston

Whitney’s second single is smooth and soulful and she sounds like she’s having so much fun. (4 weeks on #1)

8. CHASE THAT FEELING – Hilltop Hoods

Not often does hip hop appear this high at the end of the year. These guys are just good at what they do. (4 weeks on #1)

7. LIKE IT LIKE THAT – Guy Sebastian

I’m all for songs that are fun and are great to sing along to in the car. Enter: Guy Sebastian. (4 weeks on #1)

6. BATTLEFIELD – Jordin Sparks

Second-best power ballad of the year. Another one for the solo car trip. (3 weeks on #1)


Easily the best video of the year (Kanye was right). Whenever this song came on the radio it made me smile. (4 weeks on #1)

4. THE FEAR – Lily Allen

Very catchy, apt but not too rude, well produced, great vocal performance – Lily at her best. (4 weeks on #1)

3. I LOOK TO YOU – Whitney Houston

I didn’t think much of this song at first, but after hearing Whitney’s thoughts on the song during her interview with Oprah and hearing the song in the context of the whole album, it made sense. Through her ups and downs Whitney still knows where to look. (6 weeks on #1)

2. LET IT ROCK – Kevin Rudolf ft Lil Wayne

This song from right at the start of the year was an inspired fusion of club & hip hop. The track is powerful all the way and the clip has lasers; what more could you ask for. (6 weeks on #1)

1. HALO – Beyonce

This year’s #1 goes to Beyonce. A superbly written song that starts low and moody, then builds and builds right through to the end of the chorus. Beyonce is a the top of her game with her vocal performance too. (7 weeks on #1)
