Britney is #7 with what should have been the follow up to Stronger. Don't go knockin on my door. NSYNC is #2 with their title track No strings attached. A few other teen and pop music favs made the cut. But most of the list is indie rock and hip hop. Radiohead is #1 by the way.
https://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/pop/9341347/madonna-in-2000-reinventing-pop-music Madonna in the year 2000 reinvented pop music. They mention her ill fated cover of American Pie. It was a global hit. But in the states. The Don McLean version was still and is the implanted version. He was the only one to praise it. Regrettably Warner executives forced Madonna to add the track on the international version to have an additional hit song. A decision she regretted and For her 2001 90s hits album. Madonna punished the track from inclusion due to it being on Music. It's noted while Die Another day fits cohesively with American Life. American Pie threw the albums cohesive way off. Music was the proper introduction of her new direction. While it's noted she was being safe and continued the sound of 1998's Ray of Light. Which is still noted her most critically acclaimed work to date. But she goes into a direction that Madonna would be remembered. It's been said. Outside her music. If you were to put a mural of Madonna in her images. You would see that this girl never stayed true to just one image. The collage would show you Madonna. But in various outfits and themes. It's known her biggest longevity was her reinvention in both sound and image. Kimberly Caldwell said in 2013. Since the year 2000 We've had at least 16 different Madonna's and I loved each and every one of them.. The cowgirl and Americana theme of Madonna is still deemed as one of her most iconic reinventions. After all this is the same woman that dissed Antonio Banderas (her future costar in 1996's Evita) for wearing Cowboy boots in 1991's Truth or dare. She also called him a horrible actor. All this due to bringing Melanie Griffith to her show. She wanted him and was **** blocked by his Girlfriend at the time.. To me the highlight of the album Is still Don't tell me. The stop and go beat. Many people felt that it was skipping without realizing that production of the loop guitar and the beat being broken down is what made the song gel. But alas they thought it was a manufacturing error in the CD pressing. Many copies were returned. It was only realized what they did was intentional when it became a single. And the video of Madonna dancing with the gay cowboys probably pissed John wayne in his grave..
