Close But No Cigar '10s - The #2 Singles Rate


Recommended Posts

f9tIgRI.png

Welcome everyone to the 2010s edition of the Close But No Cigar Rate!

 

Originated by the awesome @umich, we will be continuing and determining the ultimate songs of the '10s that were so close,

but unfortunately could not take over the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100! Some deserved, some were questioned why even that far,

and some even blocked themselves. But, some runners up were even bigger smashes then the quick little #1s. So hello, let's celebrate that!!

 

RULES:

  • Rate each song from 1-10.
  • ONE 11 and ONE 0 are allowed.
  • One decimal allowed (ex. 5.6)
  • Comment on your 11 and 0.
  • Optional comments on any other song.
  • Don't get out of hand!!!
  • Enjoy and have fun!

 

Rates are due by Feb 14, 2021!!

Might **** around and give ME! my 11 because it’s iconic and overhated and better than most of the songs by men that are included here and it’s not like there are more than 3 songs here that actually DESERVE an 11 anyways.
