What Song is it Anyway?

what's this about?
What Song is it Anyway? is a bi-weekly game in which your music-listening skills and memory are put to the test as you have to listen to a set of ten modern, popular songs and guess what the songs are as well as their artists. The only catch is that the songs have all been changed to 8-bit format and are set to a certain theme that changes every time.
how do I play?
To play, all you have to do is click here and listen to the Soundcloud file with all ten tracks listed. Note that each track will be separated by two seconds of silence so it's obvious which is which.

After you think you've figured out what each song is, send me a private message with the tracks listed in order along with their artist. You have until July 27th to submit your guesses; whoever guesses the most correct (don't forget the artists!) wins!. Oh and here's a hint: this week's songs are set to the theme of Pop and R&B Queens.

Came for the title. >w>

Stayed just to lurk and see who actually wins at the end of this, because I don't listen to the group, so I'm screwed. xD

Maybe I'll tediously listen to every single song on youtube, until the the ungodly hours of the morning.

Edit:
oh its
OH.
Wow. yep. no. I only know two. /sits back and watches XD

I only knew about half of these. XD I'm probably not gonna figure some of them without Youtube. I'm no expert in pop after 2010 the only reason I know some of the newer ones is cause of hearing them through flipping through the radio lol.

My apologies for the briefness of the first song. I extended it and reuploaded the new version and it can be found here as well as in the first post.

I can not figure out the second one and the last one. Those two are just completely stumping me. But I'll figure it out soon enough hopefully!

I managed to get numbers 1, 2, 5, 6, 8 and 9, but unfortunately the rest escape me haha. I'm not a huge pop/R&B fan though so looking forward to next time!

I thought I'd do pretty well at this considering I love Pop and R&B but omg I suck?? I've gotten like 5 of them. 2, 6, 7, 9 and 10 are the ones I'm stuck with, although 2 and 7 sound soooo familiar omg. :(

I think I just proved that I like pop music too much since I got all but one. I listened over and over to the first one and couldn't figure it out, lmao.

Geez. I can't figure out any of these. :( I mean, I'm a bit tone deaf and R&B isn't my thing, but I thought I might be able to guess some of the pop ones if they were famous enough.

Good game idea though.

So far I have 2, 4, 5, 7, and 8. I definitely recognise 3 and 6 but their names are escaping me gahhhhh. The problem with 6 is that the section's really repetitive so if you think you recognise it and need just a bit more to confirm that then you're screwed. As for the others I have absolutely no idea yet. 8)

Also man this game is awesome. Love it.

Great game, by the way, love it.

Nick, you of all people should know all 10. Anyway, I found out what the first one was and there was no way I would have gotten that. I don't listen to that artist, so lol. Had I though, I would have had them all. :( Oh well. 9/10 ain't bad.

Figured out #7! Really disappointed at myself for not figuring it out faster, but it was one of the ones that I recognized, at the very least?

Edit: Figured out #3!
Edit2: I know WHO #1 is, but I don't know what song it is from. WHAAH!

I'm still having a hard time getting number 1! Argh!Wish I had a hint or two... :( I think I know them all except I'm sort of unsure about my answer for #9 and #2 being right.

I might consider giving out a hint on the really tough ones near the end of the week, but that's to be seen!

One is giving me the biggest headache ever. The last two I don't think I've ever heard, but the first one is making me pull my hair. =(

Edit: GOT IT. NUMBER ONE, YOU'RE MINE

Edit 2: okay, I got the wrong one. I got ten, not one. =D

*sigh* I really should know less of these songs, really embarrassing infact.

Number 1 is really easy for me to figure out actually. I've got most of them and will submit by tomorrow. Have no idea what the last two are.
