I don’t wanna have to pay for this: The best adult contemporary #1s of the 2000 and 2010s

Notice I smushed two decades together as the reigns at #1 get longer. From Faith Hill and Savage Garden and anthems by Lee Ann Womack and Martina McBride to Adele and Justin Timberlake. It was the era of Daniel Powter and James Blunt‘s skin-crawlingly sincere retrenches of ’70s soft rock.

An awful lot of Christmas tunes topped the lists too.

1. Taylor Swift – You Belong With Me
2. Lee Ann Womack – I Hope You Dance
3. Matchbox 20 – Unwell
4. Martina McBride – This One’s For the Girls
5. Lady Antebellum – Need You Now
6. Adele – Rolling in the Deep
7. Pink – Try
8. John Mayer – Waiting on the World to Change
9. Coldplay – Viva La Vida
10. Justin Timberlake – Can’t Stop the Feeling!
11. Rob Thomas – Lonely No More
12. Kelly Clarkson – Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)
14. OneRepublic – Counting Stars
15. Rob Thomas – Lonely No More
16. Miley Cyrus – The Climb
17. Enya – Only Time
18. Santana featuring Michelle Branch – The Game of Love
19. Nico & Vinz – Am I Wrong
20. Savage Garden – I Knew I Loved You
