Richard Astley, better known by his stage name Rick Astley, was born in Newton-le-Willows, Lancashire, England on February 6th, 1966, the fourth child in his family.

But this is all information you can get from Wikipedia. That’s where we got it.

What you can’t get from Wikipedia is a list of the best Rick Astley songs of all time. That information is subjective. And Wikipedia strictly prohibits subjective information.

However, here at COED, well, being subjective is part of our job. So we reviewed all 17 Rick Astley singles. We dug through the tracks on all 6 Rick Astley studio albums — even the new boring ones that he released after he came out of musical retirement.

We’ve listened to so much Rick Astley that our ears are still bleeding with aural pleasure.

The task wasn’t easy. Clearly “Together Forever” is a better cut than “She Wants to Dance with Me,” but what about “It Would Take a Strong Strong Man”? These are the kind of questions we had to tackle.

Yet after all that, our musical experts were able to do it. We’ve compiled a list of what we consider to be the 10 best Rick Astley songs of all time. Enjoy.
