Billboard has released its list of top 40 girl group songs of all time.

It isn't subjective. It's based on the songs' performances on the charts -- and is led by a disco hit from 38 years ago.

Leading the way is The Emotions' 1977 disco single "Best of My Love," from the group's album Rejoice. Destiny's Child's 1999 hit "Independent Women, Part 1" was runner-up.

TLC had three top 10 hits.

Here's the top 10, according to Billboard magazine:

  1. "Best of My Love," The Emotions
  2. "Independent Women, Part 1," Destiny's Child
  3. "Walk Like an Egyptian," The Bangles
  4. "Creep," TLC
  5. "Waterfalls," TLC
  6. "Hold On," Wilson Phillips
  7. "Love Child," Diana Ross & The Supremes
  8. "No Scrubs," TLC
  9. "Where My Girls At?," 702
  10. "He's So Fine," The Chiffons
