2002 Top 25 Must - Have Music Hits
2002 Hot Pop Songs Most Requested Music - suggest your songs here!
1. Buy It! A Moment Like This - Kelly Clarkson
This was Clarkson's first single in her multi-platinum debut album, Thankful. Co-Written by Jörgen Elofsson and John Reid, the song was meant for the winner of the first season of American Idol. The top four finalists of the show, Kelly Clarkson, Justin Guarini, Nikki McKibbin, and Tamyra Gray all recorded their own version of the song, but Kelly hit the final notes when named the first winner of Idol. Leona Lewis all did her rendition of "A Moment Like This" on the British version, The X Factor in 200 Kelly's (and all the Idol finalists') instant success followed the unforgettable movie we'd all wish to forget - From Justin to Kelly.
2. Buy It! Hot In Herre - Nelly
This was the first single from Nelly's album Nellyville and was produced by The Neptunes (Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo). "Hot In Herre" nabbed Nelly a Grammy for Best Male Rap Solo Performance and got ranked number 36 in VH's list for 100 Greatest Songs of Hip Hop. Nelly, or should we say, Cornell Haynes (his real name) has kept the hits coming animal-free, he's a vegetarian.
3. Buy It! Complicated - Avril Lavigne
From her debut album, Let Go, "Complicated" was written by her and music production team, The Matrix (also worked with Spears, Aguilera, and Duff). The song got Avril the MTV's Best New Artist in a Video Award, and nominated at the Grammys. She explains that "Complicated" is about how people can be fake and two-faced. Avril also single-handedly made it okay for girls to wear men ties and created a new image for the music industry.
4. Buy It! Girlfriend - N Sync & Nelly
Very few Nsync songs have a hip hop influence, and this is definitely one of them. Co-Written with Justin Timberlake and The Neptunes (Pharrell and Chad had a pretty good year?). "Girlfriend" with Nelly peaked at # 5 in the US and #in the UK. However, in 2006 a lawsuit was filed against all the artists, claiming copyright infringement against TRB's song "To Be My Girlfriend".
5. Buy It! Sk8er Boi - Avril Lavigne
Although the title is an editor's nightmare, this song is Avril's most successful work to date world-wide. This powerful punk/pop song has a music video just as intense, including the trend-setting tie once again. In 2003, Paramount Pictures bought the rights to the story told in "Sk8er Boi", but never followed through with the film.
