18. Rihanna: "Work" (2016)

17. Holly Herndon: "Eternal" (2019)
Yes, the concept of music, one that don't want to call ecstasy, is – as the pop theorist Simon Reynolds in his essay, "Conceptronica has" been right. Where: Holly Herndon in this Track, artificial intelligence, limits of Beats and archaic chants, move together, this is simply: overwhelming. And it is hoped that this production will leave in the Hitfabriken tracks. For Criticism.
16. Baze: "Ender less" (2006)
What is possible in the Popsprache Bern German, especially away from the dialect rocks? Very much, such as Baze in his Raptracks shows. Even if now some will say: "Sorry, ender, and less."
15. Steel Berger: "homeland" (2011)
We stay in Switzerland, the home and the Home of chauvinism, it was the great song themes. You could adopt the "Swissness" but also easy, as did Manuel Stahl Berger and his Band of 2011: "You well home, the big word/ Japanese home e wayyy?/ Or is it really en place?" The dizziness of this tersely hung sungenen lines stops. For a critique of the associated album "Abghenkt ends".

The Label Hyperdub is setting for the last 15 years, new standards in the electronic music – for example, with the publications of the mysterious Burial.

13. Big Zis: "Wott just dance" (2005)
"Let's Dance" on Züritüütsch, because the rapper Big Zis, like the Album "or read means everything" – everything is allowed. And with this Track especially, of a power: Lostanzen.
12. Kanye West: "Monster" (2010)
Who's the Monster, Bon Iver, Rick Ross, Jay-Z, the are all listen to, or Kanye West, this manic NetWorker at the height of his time? No, Nicki is Minaj, in her verse, all of the rival. Because the Rapmonster is not (only) a woman.
11. Tame Impala: "Let It Happen" (2015)
There were also years of the unleashing of the Pop, and a return of the psychedelic, especially thanks to Bands like the Animal Collective. But the longing to escape from the World has no Song better encapsulated than Kevin Parker's "Let It Happen", sings here: "And if I never come back // Tell my mother I'm sorry".
10. Ja, Panik: "Libertatia" (2014)
New utopias, against nationalism and against the arrest and hopelessness: This is formulated by the Austrian group, Yes, panic in this anthemic Song. This includes: "One world. One Love. Libertatia". The portrait of Ja, Panik-singer Andreas Spechtl.

As Missy Elliott in the summer of 2019, the MTV Video Music Award for her life's work, she received at last the fame that would have seen her as a Hip-Hop avant gardistin been longer. How much of Missy Elliott's Rap has catalyzed: You can hear it also in this form of explosive production.
8. The White Stripes: "Seven Nation Army" (2003)
The first years of the new century the years of the guitar with all the "The"Bands were. Almost all has been forgotten, but also thanks to the football stadiums of this world, the monster riff from Jack White is stuck in the collective memory. Perhaps liegts Yes on the razor-sharp-primitive Drumming of the brilliant Meg White.
7. Amy Winehouse: "Tears Dry on Their Own" (2006)
The Rehab did sadly nothing, and so you had to dry help it along with the Tears, when Amy Winehouse died in the summer of 2011. What remains, is, for example, a Song like "Tears Dry on Their Own", which triumphs over all private misery.
6. Kendrick Lamar: "Alright" (2015)
Party and protest song: "Alright" from Kendrick Lamar's major work "To Pimp a Butterfly" is both, and for all the anger at racist police violence in the United States, the hope never. "We gon' be alright", raps the man from Compton, and those who are affected, with the rapping.
5. Jeans for Jesus: "like no chli blibä" (2017)
do you Pray? You like the police? And when you had the last Time you had Sex? You may ask everything, also in Bern in the German language in a Synth-Pop song. Where these questions lead to? Now, in the eternal Popversprechen the name of freedom – if you ever get a residence permit.
4. Kylie Minogue: "Can't Get You Out of My Head" (2001)
When the world was less complicated, was published in the ' Kylie Minogue the most enticing pop song of the century. A perfect Song, the one not more from the head. "La la la la la la la la" ...
3. Beyoncé: "Formation" (2016)
at the beginning of the Millennium, Beyonce Knowles is still a member of Destiny's Child. What a long road it has traveled, this is also listening to "Formation", one of the key pieces of your self-empowerment-album "Lemonade". And you, the black woman, skin your haters like to profess your work ethic to the ears when she sings: "I dream it, I work hard, I grind 'til I own it".
2. M. I. A.: "Paper Planes" (2007)
Before the Gunshot to the sound gimmick of all would-be gangsters was, he sounded so explosive as in the case of Mathangi Arulpragasam, not blew up the comfortable Western Pop-coordinates only with their provocations. Of course: It is also The Clash listen to thanks to the Sample in this Song, you can dance to this Song, the British-Tamil musician also. What you hear above all, is a world is an inhospitable place. Especially when you don't have the "right" papers.
1. Frank Ocean: "Bad Religion" (2012)
The therapist is a taxi driver. He hears the story of an unrequited love that Frank Ocean told him from the back seat. But pray? No, that's the this so free singer who was once part of the Rap-Stunt-collective Odd Future and here these visionary Soul song sings, despite the Church organ. For Criticism.
