Re: Rolling Stone (USA) Top 50 Best Singles of 2011

No. 3 for THAT track? RS usually has decent lists (I know some may not love the mix of mainstream/non-mainstream), but that's TOO high. Not like it's "Toxic."

"Edge of Glory" may be my favorite Stefani Gaga track, so no problem with that ranking in the top 10.
