    Admittedly, we knew the question was a little hard.

    Especially since "all of the above" wasn't an option.

    5. "***Flawless"

    Best line: "I woke up like this / We flawless, ladies tell 'em"

    Why it's important: Yoncé combines forces with Chimamanda Adichie to define feminism for a new generation of equality-fighters.

    4. "Love on Top"

    Best line: "When I need you make everything stop / Finally you put my love on top"

    Why it's important: Bey brought the '80s back to life – and you can almost hear Stevie Wonder and Whitney Houston singing along in the background.

    3. "Halo"

    Columbia Records / Via

    Best line: "I swore I'd never fall again / But this don't even feel like falling / Gravity can't forget to pull me back to the ground again"

    Why it's important: In the song as in the music video, it is Beyoncé raw and unfiltered. And six years after its release, it still resonates.

    2. "Single Ladies"

    Columbia Records / Via

    Best line: "I got gloss on my lips, a man on my hips / Hold me tighter than my Dereon jeans / Acting up, drink in my cup / I could care less what you think"

    Why it's important: The song is STILL stuck in our heads, and we're STILL trying to imitate the dance.

    1. "Crazy in Love"

    Columbia Records / Via

    Best line: "Uh oh, uh oh, uh oh, oh no no / Uh oh, uh oh, uh oh, oh no no"

    Why it's important: It's when we fell in love with Queen Bey, and hearing it takes us back to the beginning.
