TGJ Update: ‘The Greatest Song Of The Decade Is’….Extended!

Published: Thursday 22nd Aug 2013 by David

Last month, we asked you to name a number of songs you felt were worthy of being named one of ‘the greatest songs of the last decade’.

From the list you provided, we put together a tally featuring the cuts that were named the most to create TGJ’s ‘The Greatest Song of the Decade Is…’ poll.

Now, with over 160,000 votes cast, the overwhelming response has seen us given no choice but to extend the poll for another month- giving you more time to take your favourite cut to the top!!

That’s right…up until September 23rd 2013, you can continue to vote for the songs listed here!

Weigh in below!

    • Locus August 22, 2013

      • Ruleyou August 22, 2013

        A b**** with bad grammar calling me dumb. LMAO When will Ci-Error fit in on the main charts?

    • Locus August 22, 2013

      You just wanna fit in dumb f**…

  14. PRINCE MACHIAVEL August 22, 2013

    Thx TGJ For This Post But F*** Your List! Mine Is ” From Autum To Ashes: Short Stories With Tragic Ending’d, “Jannel Monae: Come Alive” “Die Aintwood: Enter The Ninjja, Madonna: Miles Away” Metallica!!!!!

  15. Rosie August 22, 2013

    Only on TGJ would songs such as “Goodies” and “Grenade” be considered as song of the decade. They would’ve never been considered on any other site.

  16. LOL August 22, 2013

    King Michael and Queen Janet slaying the competition, as usual.

  17. HOWYOULIKEIT August 22, 2013

    Who even nominated ciara?

  18. dee August 22, 2013

    Hero goes the stupid polls again! Please stop!

  19. Chris August 22, 2013

    Y’all are still arguing over that ? Don’t act like Crazy in Love isn’t !

  20. ??? August 22, 2013

    This poll makes no sense. How is it that you are asking for the song of the decade, but have classic/legendary/timeless songs listed among one hit wonders? It’s completely unfair to put a michael jackson song of any sort against any of these people, excluding maybe mariah, whitney, or janet. If you want to know about the decade then focus on songs that came out in the last decade! Duh!

  21. SMH August 22, 2013

    why y’all hate Ciara so much? LOL

    • ratedxxx(next broad) August 22, 2013

      three words, dumb ass stans…..

  22. ratedxxx(next broad) August 22, 2013

    these polls are created so people can have stans wars…stan wars equals more hits..

    I don’t take these stupid ass poll seriously….

    people like mariah, britney, xtina, michael jackson, janet jackson, whitney houston, usher,and celine dion, shouldn’t be put on the same level as those basic b******.

    they are legends and icons who actually made history, made impacts on and off the charts….they actually sold albums not singles…..

    they actually have diamond albums…why should they be compare to basic b****** who has been in the game and yet still cant get a diamond album…all they are good for are hot singles…..

    • ENOUGH ONIKA (KMART QUEEN) August 22, 2013


    • Starships August 23, 2013

      The poll aint about who haz a diamond album tho dumbass its about the song of the decade dumbass.

    • Starships August 23, 2013

      And i agree with yo list minus xtina and britney cos just cos the have a diamond they still not big legends on the level of mj and whitney. B**** you can be a legend without a diamond album anyway look at toni braxton and aretha. So have a seat with that dumb theory

      • Starships August 23, 2013

        oh and minis usher

  23. Thelezi August 23, 2013

    Will you guys hate me if I said that Sade’s “By your side” was the greatest song of the decade?

  24. JoeJoe August 23, 2013

    why the hell would they extend this poll? Maybe they’re upset that their fave wasn’t winning or that they just want more hits on their website. The poll should’ve ended when you guys first said it should. Tally the votes and leave it at that

  25. Thelezi August 23, 2013

    sade is the greatest musician of all time!

  26. just….moi August 23, 2013

    Song of the decade is either Umbrella or crazy in love. Not mj, not Whitney, yes they are legends but that doesn’t mean they had the song of this decade, maybe 80’s or 90’s.
    This poll is trash!

  27. JOHNVIDAL August 23, 2013

    So now all of a sudden Janet and my beloved Whitney are leading along with Michael? Who the hell do u think you are fooling? I´m like the only real Whitney fan in this site, well and 2 or 3 more commenters, and I doubt any of us voted for I look To You, seeing how We Belong Together is there to be voted for example. Whitney doesn´t have a huge fan base in the Internet either so this seems really off. Not that this list is relevant obviously. If some lists Billboard make are irrelevant you can imagine what this list is 🙂

    • Manah August 23, 2013

      Who told you are the only whitney fan that read TGJ? I have been checking TGJ everyday since 2008, but this is my very first comment on this blog. Just because you comment every day doesn’t mean you are the person(s) that reads the site.
      Plus, I’ve you heard of search engines before? And that thousands of people are brought to the site each day even for the first time?

      Also, TGJ as a blog gets an average of about 7,000 views for each post published and more than 30,000 views a day for the whole blog.
      So just because they get an average of about 100 comments per post each day doesn’t mean people don’t read this site much.

      I hope you understands now!

      • JOHNVIDAL August 25, 2013

        Aw thank u for explaining Sam! lol
        Still my point was not that, it was that it makes no sense I look to You is almost leading. Sorry. This type of things are more about the basic young fans, Whitney has not a HUGE fan base among that basic type of people.

  28. Common Sense August 23, 2013

    Nothing but s*** at the top of the list. That includes both MJ’s and Janet’s songs. The only song that deserves (and technically already owns the title) is We Belong Together.

  29. anonymous August 23, 2013

    i now know the list is fixed

  30. Mike August 23, 2013


    What a laughable poll

    That would be the best songs of the decade for who, 13 year old girls?

    Some choices are just plain ridiculous… Justin Bieber – “Baby”, really?

  31. matt August 23, 2013

    Half of the songs on this poll shouldn’t even be on here! like really! Ariana, Drake, justin bieber! they haven’t been in the business for a decade, there are way better songs out there!!!!


  32. Moonlight August 23, 2013

    WOW @ people taking a blog poll so damned serious. Arguing and insulting each other over absolutely nothing. You people seriously need to relax. Though it’s quite entertaining, it’s not that serious. Nobody’s gonna die nor win a big prize people. It’s just a poll.

  33. Queen Kelly August 29, 2013

    Kelly rowland when love takes over

  34. Jason August 29, 2013

    You can’t lie, goodies was actually a really good song. This is Ciara’s first single & most of you hating her now.. was loving her back then & probably still do on the low. Goodies is dope.
