One of the best pop songs ever released turns ten years old today! And it is still as timeless as ever.

Ten years of booty popping, weaveography and wind machines. I love you Beyoncé!

I still really like this song. I actually think she's never topped Crazy in Love It's her best song.

This is one of the hardest songs to sing. I have attempted it and never again ... my voice is just not good enough.

I love most of her music, but CIL remains my favourite to this day. I think that says something about it. It may not be the deepest songs or whatever, but the horns and everything... it's just so catchy. Really makes you happy and want to dance! I can listen to it on repeat and still not get bored after 10 years.

Haha I know, I am the same. She actually performs it live pretty well AND manages the entire routine. I am completely in awe every time. I love that she doesn't tone it down though Too many great dancy songs end up either not getting performed, getting mimed to, or ruined.

10 years on & I finally found the radio edit without Jay-Zs vocals. Yay.

Same, I love it. Can't believe she's updated the choreography at the end though after all these years. I preferred the old one.

I still like it, nice to see something different, but I hope she still does the old one too. Maybe mix it up etc to keep it fresh .

One of the most iconic songs in the last decade.

True classic.

By far her best solo song imo. She's a talented girl but her solo material has been bland and dull

I quite like Beyonce but I have never rated this song. I have always thought that it was one of her weakest....

I love that song! Can't believe it's 10 years old. It still sounds as good now as it did back in 2003.

It's an amazing song. I actually think she's done better though, or at least equalled it. Now and again people come out with the line "She's great but her music is crap". I disagree. Take a look at this list. She's had so many hits throughout her career, both with Destiny's Child and on her own. I also like that she does what she wants and had always stuck to RnB. Even when the dance trend was in full force, she didn't jump on that bandwagon. She stuck to what she likes and what she wanted. I actually think her last album 4 is her best.
