You mean to tell me that "In My Projects" by Coo Coo Cal didn't make the list? A shame!

Leah said...

@8:29 Some call it hate. I call it truth. The only song I like on the list is Mariah Carey's. But....

So refreshing! They finally got it right!! Crazy in Love is definitely the #1 song of all the hot garbage cesspool,stinking pile of camel pooh & piss that hit the air waves since 2000. Sucker. This was the start of music's ending.

It's the #1 most mind nubbing undanceable song that makes people clear the danefloor. It's the #1 disk jockey 101 no no. Beyonce is probably so proud of this failure.

She was still a sista on this cover. I remember this Bey era. Anyway, I'm sure Knowles & Co. bought this spot on the list.

9:41@ Good morning Koreah !

☆Koréah☆ said...

Leah, you always have good and positive comments. I like that.

Malika the Slutty Prude said...

I think that "In My Projects" by Coo Coo Cal was about number 11, followed closely by "Because I Got High" by Afroman.

Leah said...

Koreah, yours are so much better. :-)

☆Koréah☆ said...

Leah, you should make a profile, that way you can just sign in and post, instead of having to type your name every time. Just a thought :-)

if there is any doubt left that the 90's was the last decade of solid music, HERE IS YOUR PROOF.

Leah in Atlanta said...

Gurl! I'm doing that as we speak! I couldn't take signing in anymore. Hope I do it right... you know I was born in Fresno & have family all in Cali right? I miss the Cali lifestyle and food.

☆Koréah☆ said...

Leah, Fresno is classy and laid back. Cali is cool but we are SO OVER-CROWDED! I had to wait an hour at Starbuck's for a caramel frap in L.A. Yeah, making a profile makes posting easier in my opinion.

The only time I liked the song Crazy in love was when Monique performed it on the BET awards she hosted!

The only four people that compiled the list were Matthew, Solange, Kelly, and Beyonce!

"Empire State of Mind"? Oh VH1, no. NO. NO. NO.
"Crazy in Love" is far and away Beyonce's best song. Top spot? No. Top five? Yes!

Anonymous said...

This list is bull shit now y'all know they posted info in beyonces fan clubs so her stans could flood the voting. Out of 10 years worth of music you can't tell me that most of those people named deserved to be there and most of those songs came at the end of the decade.

Lose Yourself is at #4, and #3 is Poker Face??

Les said...

"Crazy In Love" sounded like a million different sounds going on at once. This song is NOT classic and it's comical that it made it to #1 on this list, which was approved by Knowles & Co. Come to think of it, NO SONG by Beyonce screams "CLASSIC!" to me. You know how we still listen to The Temptations, Aretha, Stevie and Marvin Gaye? (Well, I still listen to the Motown greats.) I bet $1 and a Wal-Mart gift card that Beyonce's 4 albums will NOT be regarded as "old school classic music" some 50 years from now.

Crazy In Love is a remake, the original song came out years ago, so it should not even qualify

ELove said...

I WAS Still LIKING Bey-Baby back then and "Crazy In Love" wasn't EVEN the BEST SONG on That Album (Real)

And I AGREE with Everyone Else that this list IS A JOKE !!!

Personally Speaking... Mariah, Kanye, Eminem and Outkast are the ONLY Top 10 Worthy Songs

Bee Gee said...

VH1 would come up with a list like that. Nauseating..

I don't know what voodoo spell Beyonce & Jay (I see he made the countdown twice) has put on the world, but it's working ... there's NO WAY Crazy In Love is the best song of the decade ... Ok, so Alicia's "Fallin" didn't even make the top 10, REALLY? That song was HUGE!!! They are just giving this woman every title they can think of ... WOW, truly unbelievable!!!

"Crazy in Love" was lauded by reviewers, who generally complimented the horn lines and the guest appearance of Jay-Z in the song. Many of them also coined it as the "Summer Anthem of 2003".[48] Tim Sendra of Allmusic, an online music database, described the song as a "stunning pop masterpiece",[31] while Stephen Thomas Erlewine of the same website called it "deliriously catchy".[49] Darryl Sterdan, writing for the Canadian website Jam!, noted the song's "instantly addictive horn lines".[18] Anthony DeCurtis for Rolling Stone magazine also remarked to the horn sample, and noted the contribution of Jay-Z, writing: "'Crazy in Love' ... roars out of the speakers on the strength of a propulsive horn sample and the charged presence of her pal, Jay-Z."[17] Marc Anthony Neal of the international webzine PopMatters complimented the "uh-oh, uh-oh" phrase as "catchy".[7] MTV News considered the song the "proudest moment" of the album.[50] Blender called "Crazy in Love" an "itchy [and] eager-to-please" track.[51] Allison Stewart of The Washington Post called the song the best one on the album and complimented its horns, harmonies, samples and the rap verse of Jay-Z.[9] This is echoed by Kelefa Sanneh of The New York Times who said the song is the best one on the album thanks to its simplicity, irresistible combination of triumphant horns and a wicked hip-hop beat.[11] She further added that "her vocals - as deft and accurate as ever - convey none of the giddy rush that the lyrics describe."[11]

Rob Fitzpatrick of NME praised the song calling it, "head-nodding [and] body-rocking funk-soul genius" and further saying that the track is "is a 100 per cent, stone-cold, dead-cert classic." He also complimented Knowles' vocals, calling her "genuinely, hip-grindingly fruity".[52] Los Angeles Times writer Natalie Nichols said that "sexy dance tunes as the vintage funk-flavored" "Crazy in Love" made Dangerously in Love a great album.[10] James Poletti of Yahoo! Music called the track "glorious" and coined it the best track on the entire record.[53] Yancey Strickler of Flak Magazine wrote: "[...] Featuring a stunning horn bombast, it has the potential of a Lebron breakaway with Jay-Z's typically stellar guest verse and Beyoncé's cocked-hip, sassy delivery."[54] Sal Cinquemani of Slant Magazine said the lyrical arrangement, the music structure, as well as the guest spot by Jay-Z all contributed in making "Crazy in Love" a wonderful resume for Knowles.[8] Neil Drumming of Entertainment Weekly told that the song has a "fresh sound".[19] Spence D., writing for IGN Music stated that Knowles rides the "infectious rhythm" with grace and mid-range seductively. He also added:[...] as can be expected, the track bumps when Jay drops his distinctive uptown flavor. While other rap-meet-R&B tracks often fall flat, this one works well as Beyoncé and Jay's verbals play nicely against one another."[14] Lisa Verrico of The Times magazine wrote that Jay-Z did a "decent rap", however, "Beyoncé and the beats save the day."[15]

"Crazy in Love" was a commercial success in the United States. Although not yet served to retail stores, the single was already gaining massive attention. The single reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100, the official US singles chart, based on heavy rotation alone.[74] The same week it reached number one, Dangerously in Love debuted on the Billboard 200 at number one as well. The substantial airplay, and later in retail, gains of "Crazy in Love" facilitated it to dominate the chart,[75] subsequently spending eight straight weeks atop the Hot 100,[76] making it Knowles' first number-one single in her solo career. According to Nielsen SoundScan, "Crazy in Love" was the most downloaded song in the United States for four consecutive weeks in July 2003.[77] Knowles quickly outdid herself with the release of the album's second single, "Baby Boy", which topped the chart one week longer than "Crazy in Love."[78] The single charted for twenty-seven weeks on the Hot 100, spending fifteen of those weeks in the top ten, and twenty-six of those weeks in the top fifty. The song was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) in 2004[79] while its Mobile Mastertone was also certified gold two years later.[80] "Crazy in Love" eventually became the fourth biggest hit of 2003 in the United States.[81] As at October 6, 2010, "Crazy in Love" had sold 47,000 physical units in the US.[82]

In international markets, "Crazy in Love" fared as well. Knowles made history by being the third female artist to have a number-one single and a number-one album simultaneously in the United Kingdom.[83] The first was the American singer Mariah Carey, whose album Music Box and single "Without You" were at the summit of the chart for the week of March 12–19, 1994. The second was the Australian pop singer Kylie Minogue in 2001, with her album Fever and its single "Can't Get You Out of My Head". Counting her career with Destiny's Child, this became Knowles's third number-one single in the United Kingdom, and it was the only song during 2003 to top the charts in both the United Kingdom and the United States.[84] The single spent three weeks at number one in the United Kingdom,[85] spending a total of 15 weeks in the top 100 positions.[86] On the Irish Singles Chart it reached number one, enjoying eighteen weeks of charting.[87] In Australia, "Crazy in Love" attained a high point of number two on the ARIA Singles Chart,[88] and received a platinum certification from the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) with sales in excess of 70,000 units.[89] It also peaked at number two on the New Zealand Singles Chart,[88] and was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of New Zealand (RIANZ).[90] "Crazy in Love" appeared on several charts in mainland Europe, peaking generally inside the top ten positions.[88] It reached the top ten in Austria, the Belgian territories of both Flanders and Wallonia, Denmark, Germany, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland.[88]

Come on y'all! You gotta give Beyonce her props. This is by far her best single she's every put out, before all the screaming, the yodeling, and the p-popping. It's personally my favorite era from her.

About the rest of that list (well just the top 10 b/c I'm not bothering to see the rest) it's a complete joke.

VH1 choices in their video countdowns have always been a joke. And I get sick and damn tired of a commercial every two videos. They're clearly paid by the industry folk.
