Top 50 Singles of 2009: 30-26

30. Måns Zelmerlöw - Hope & Glory



The polar opposite of track number 31, this huge, bombastic pop song easily became my Zelmerlow anthem of choice. Very campy.

29. Hot Leg - Cocktails



Who knew that after the Darkness Justin Hawkins could do it again? In fact, the glorious glam rock here trumps a lot of what the Darkness released.

28. Noisettes - Never Forget You



One 60’s throwback I can get behind, this single breathed some life into the genre with great lyrics and an even better hook.

27. Private - Killer On The Dancefloor



How many years in a row have these guys been featured on this list for the same album? Here’s yet another single, and yet another stunner. Now it’s time for a new campaign.

26. Dragonette - Pick Up The Phone




A mature, beautiful pop song from these guys, and a deserved hit in their native Canada. I’m not sure they’ve ever recorded a better track.

the Mans Zelmerlow song was just amazing. I still love it this late on in the year and it shows what should be coming out of male winners of the x factor. Joe has a lot to live up to!

The Noisettes song was one that just grew and grew on me as time went on and became one of the more lovely tracks of the year.

And Dragonette - here was the perfect chance for a pop group to take some of the acclaimed pop kudos from the vacationing Girls Aloud and Scissor Sisters, yet it didn't work. How sad :(

Joe will not live up to that, I can safely predict. No, it will be an unending road of ballads for him. Shame, because he could be another George Michael if given the right material.

Dragonette have seem to hit it pretty big in their native Canada. Pick Up The Phone is played incessantly on the Canadian pop station I often listen to. It's nice to hear.
