Most big artists have their key songs, but what songs by them do you love?

Katy Perry - "Thinking of you" - Beautiful heartfelt ballad:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wdGZBRAwW74

Plus "Waking up in Vegas" - catchy rock tune:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-pUaogoX5o

These seem to have been forgotten about since the "Teenage Dream" era.

This one is VERY different to what Rihanna is doing now. "We Ride":

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jlvY1o6XKwA

I don't know if this was ever officially released but I do like this one from Pixie Lott - "Can't Make This Over":

Save The Hero is probably my favorite Beyonce song. It was on the Bonus Edition of the Sasha Fierce album. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tb0ty...e_gdata_player

I could go on forever with underrated songs but underrated singles:
Beyonce - Dance For You (and the whole of the 4 album tbh)
Demi Lovato - Here We Go Again
Leona Lewis - I Got You
N-Dubz - So Alive
Nicki Minaj - Massive Attack
Paramore - Careful
Rihanna - Shut Up and Drive & Hard
Taylor Swift - White Horse

Just my opinion, but Massive Attack is shit. I agree about Rihanna, though I don't think either of those were underrated.

Britney Spears had delivered some of the biggest and best pop records of the past 13 years or so, however in recent times some of her great singles have been really underrated and not been given their due, especially.....

Circus
Till The World Ends (easily one of the best pop/dance records of the last 5 years)
Criminal

I agree with these highlighted ones, and Leona with Forgive Me and Kylie with Wouldn't Change a Thing

U2 with Staring at the Sun and City of Blinding Lights
Snow Patrol with Take Back the City
Faithless/ Dido with One Step Too Far

I may think of some more later...

Britney Spears - Overprotected, Criminal, Womanizer, Stronger
Lady GaGa - You & I, Beautiful Dirty Rich
Sugababes - Stronger, Red Dress, Run For Cover Follow Me Home

This one is VERY different to what Rihanna is doing now. "We Ride":

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jlvY1o6XKwA
I remember this song and I didn't even know it was by Rihanna. Very under rated song!

Slow/ Kylie Minogue - Slow is like the 2nd lowest selling #1 of all time and it's just so different, so original and absolutely shines out any of her other #1 singles.

Thinking of You/ Katy Perry - Is incredible and the best song she has ever released, most of Katy's other material is just pop for kids.

Hands Clean/ Alanis Morissette - It's just perfection, her most well written song and is miles better than anything on Jagged Little Pill.

Upside Down/ Paloma Faith - Just how was this NOT a hit.

Going Under/ Evanesence - Overshadowed by Bring Me To Life & My Immortal and in my opinion is just as good.

This Is War/ 30 Seconds To Mars - Overshadowed by the incredible Kings & Queens but is still very good.

I agree with most of this Updie down is odd as its well known and stuck around in the lower reaches for ages.

Half of the songs in here aren't underrated at all. Like Waking Up In Vegas. How can that at all be considered underrated?

The Killers - "Dustland Fairytale"
YES to that, one of The Killers' best songs, and it's criminally ignored, even by Killers fans.
