VH1’s Viewers Sure Do Like Looking At Jess Mariano When He’s Not Wearing A Shirt

I mean, it’s the only explanation for Fergie’s “Big Girls Don’t Cry (Personal)” being the channel’s No. 1 video for 2007. Right? Right? Also in the top five: Daughtry’s “It’s Not Over,” Pink’s “U + Ur Hand,” “Umbrella,” and that Maroon 5 video where they’re getting their Hall & Oates on while on a plane. Full list after the jump, but for now, etc., etc.

THE GOOD: Nelly Furtado’s “Say It Right”–the best freestyle song of the past decade–lands at No. 7. Regina Spektor’s lovely “Fidelity” squeaks in at No. 38. Carrie Underwood’s super-smashy “Before He Cheats” is on there. And that Pink video is kinda fun. (Bonus: Depending on where you hear “U + Ur Hand,” different lyrics–including the titular hand–get bleeped out!)
THE BAD: Two Nickelback videos. Two Daughtry videos. Two Fergie videos. Linkin Park. Colbie Caillat. The OneRepublic Phil Collins homage. That Bon Jovi “country” single that was basically Jon sleepwalking his way through a quieter version of “Never Say Goodbye.” An Avril ballad. If you ever wanted to argue that pop this year had as much bad as it had good–if not more!–this list would be an excellent place to start.
THE WHAAAA? Who knew Lifehouse put out a record this year? Well, OK then.
