3. Household Goods - Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs
2. Run The World (Girls) - Beyonce
Two of the years "Biggest flop" happened to be my most favourite smashes
1. Judas - Lady Gaga
Much like last year's number one, Robyn's "Dance On My Own," Judas turned out to be one of those big hits that somehow wasn't. It played to all of the sounds of a perfect pop hits and even blended elements of hardcore metal in the mix. This emotionally conscious material was set apart from other mainstream top ten hit that seem to favor parties and last friday nights. However, it failed to capture most pop music listeners and was considered to be Gaga's first flop. Soon after, the release of "The Edge of Glory" emerged and overshadowed the metaphorically toned hit record. With the decreasing attention of mother monster, Judas quickly fell off the hot 100 after seven weeks and was respectively forgotten. However, the single found a second life on the web by becoming the top searched Gaga song of the Born This Way era. It was also recognized for a couple of Grammy Award nominations. Ultimately, if the artist stops believing in their work everyone else will stop. As for Judas, I still believe.
