"Apologize" becomes one of United States biggest

One Republic and Timbaland's global smash hit "Apologize" is now officially one of the top selling singles of all time in the United States. We're not just talking R&B or Hip Hop or Pop, we mean in music period in the U.S. Here take a look at the top 10 list:

1. "A Little Less Conversation" - Elvis Presley
2. "Here Without You" - 3 Doors Down
3. "Another One Bites The Dust" - Queen
4. "Apologize" - Timbaland
5. "(Everything I Do) I Do It For You" - Bryan Adams
6. "Hey Jude" - The Beatles*
7. "Hound Dog/Don't Be Cruel" - Elvis Presley
8. "I Will Always Love You" - Whitney Houston
9. "Let's Get It On" - Marvin Gaye
10. "Low" - Flo Rida

*Beatles songs are not yet available for online streaming, so this playlist substitutes a live Paul McCartney version

Timbo's up there with Queen, Elvis Presley, and Marvin Gaye! I have to say I never thought Tim would ever be THIS big but the facts don't lie. Timbo the King!


  1. That's a travesty OneRepublic isn't listed as featured, lol

  2. this list is really wierd...
    "Here Without You" is #2????
    damn! and im really suprised tims even on this list. I didnt know it was tht big?
    who made this list anyway???
    boog plz put up a source one in a while...

    @ missy blog... hmmm i think u mean tragedy lol travesty is something totally different.

  3. to see 3 Doors Down up there is indeed extremely weird...

  4. I swear.....the day I bought Shock Value, played through it, and landed on this track.....I KNEW this day would come. Much respected collaboration....Kinda surprised by some of the others that made it myself tho

  5. here without you was big!!! i used to jam to it :)

  6. This is ridiculous............. Why do OneRepublic get so little recognition for a song that is pretty much theirs? SMH....... How can it be Timbaland's song, or Timbaland feat. OneRepublic?

  7. The fact that Flo-Rida is up there...That friggin depresses me. Are we really that kindove society?

  8. @ teeza...idk lol in a way I understand it because it is Timbo's mix of the song and they are on his label...but i mean OneRepublic is a household name now and honestly I think they get more credit than timbo for making the track

  9. for sum reason I just dont believe this list. theres NOTHING from Michael Jackson on this list? and wtf? FLO RIDA??? Props to One Republic though. I agree, this song is soooo theres with a looped Timbaland drum pattern.

  11. Im so proud of Timbo. A none keyboard playing musician. To come this far. Might have stepped on some pple on the way up...But goes with the territory.


  12. First off, I saw this coming, Apologize is awesome, AND according to Billboard, it's the 50the biggest song in Hot 100 history.
    Second, Here Without You is number 2??? Don't get me wrong, I love that song, but I had no idea it was bigger than Apologize, Hey Jude, Hound Dog ect. ect. .
    Third, it doesn't surprise me that Low is on this list, it was atop the Hot 100 among many other charts for so long I'm surprised it's not higher up on the list. Even if, IMO, the song wasn't THAT great. I don't know about everyone else, but when I hear "Apologize" I think OneRepublic, I don't think it really matters if they are listed, even if they should be.
