Billboard lists 50 top love songs of all time

Billboard made a list of the 50 biggest love songs of all time, based on their chart position. It's mostly ballads, and the earliest entry on the list is 1958's 'To Know Him Is to Love Him' by the Teddy Bears. It seems love isn't really much of a thing lately - the newest entry on this list is 2011's 'We Found Love' by Rihanna.

NME has made a compilation of 23 best drill songs from the history of genre. After being pioneered by Chicagoan producer Young Chop in 2012, drill has become rap’s most popular sub-genre. The list covers everything from Chief Keef's 2012 'I Don't Like' to last years' 'Dior' by Pop Smoke.

BBC revealed the 10 most played songs on UK TV and radio of the last decade:

10. 'Sex On Fire' - Kings Of Leon

Lists are always great fun, right? Billboard made a totally unnecessary and a totally fun one - a list of the biggest pop stars every year since 1981 to 2019. It starts with Blondie, continues with Michael Jackson and Madonna from the 1980s, Nirvana and TLC, among others, from the 1990s, Eminem and Beyonce from 2000s, and Adele and Justin Bieber from the last ten years.

Billboard made a selection of songs that "shaped and reflected the music and culture of the 2010s". Billboard explains "not all of them defined the decade at its best, but for better or worse, it’s close to impossible for us to imagine the decade without any of them".
