The Capital Evening Show With Jimmy Hill 7pm - 10pm
Join Capital as we take a look at some of the best pop song lyrics from the past few years, the ones you just can't seem to get out of your head!
"Rah, rah, ah, ah, ah, roma, roma, ma. Gaga, ooh, la, la... want your bad romance!" - This song has proved one of the US star's biggest ever hits and still gets everyone up dancing and singing when it comes on in clubs and bars!
"I got so many clothes I keep 'em in my aunt's house" - Tinie's huge 2010 hit may be three years old but it's still played regularly today, and this line is the one people always quote when imitating the UK rapper!
"What rhymes with hug me?" - It's the question of the year, and unfortunately for Robin he's often bombarded with suggestions across Twitter and in viral clips!
"Been around the world, don't speak the language. But your booty don't need explaining" - Who else reckons Jason needs an award for including possibly the best/worst chat-up line in his new song.
"White lips, pale face, breathing in snow flakes" - These were the opening lyrics from the very first time most people heard an Ed Sheeran song, and since then he's gone from strength to strength!
"When I was in the third grade I thought that I was gay..." - With just these words Macklemore made a clear statement on homophobia in hip-hop, and the world in general.
"I can't wait 'til I get you on the floor good-looking" - Oh Justin... you smooth-talker!
"You are now, now rocking with will.i.am and Britney b***h!" - Arguably THE catchiest phrase of the year, you'd be hard pressed to find a single pop fan who hasn't sang along with Will to these lyrics!
"I could be your Buzz Lightyear, fly across the globe" - We're not entirely convinced about this Toy Story metaphor...but it seems pretty certain there are millions of Beliebers out there who are!
"Sun-kissed skin, so hot, we'll melt your popsicle!" - Katy was at her most naughty on this song, which features US rapper Snoop Dogg!
"I'm feeling sexy and free, like glitter's raining on me" - With these lyrics Jessie secured one of her most popular songs ever, and ensured 'Domino' will never be far from anyone's karaoke playlist.
"To the left, to the left" - Just try to sing-a-long to this Beyonce song without doing the obligatory dance move!
"There's vomit on his sweater already, mom's spaghetti!" - Thanks very much for this image Mr. Mathers.
"What you gon' do with all that junk? All that junk inside your trunk!" - Fergie forever endeared herself to pop music lovers everywhere with this INCREDIBLY cheeky number!
"My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard" - Undoubtedly one of THE most quoted song lyrics of the past decade! We salute you Kelis!
"Do you ever feel, like a plastic bag?" - Well...answer the question!
"Jaaaaaaon Derulooooo!" - The ubiquitous opening line from a Jason song deserves recognition!
"He's jus a rascal!" - For many this was their first introduction to the London-born rapper, and they've never looked back since!
"You can't go to bed, without a cup of tea!" - Love it or loathe it, Louis Tomlinson's line from One Direction's 2012 ballad is the lyric that most sticks in your mind from these five boys!
"I said, excuse me, you're a hell of a guy!" - Arguable Nicki Minaj could feature several more times on this countdown, with some incredible lyrics in her music so far, but this one tops the list!
