Top 200 Songs Of The 2000s, Part III (150-126)

150. Teenage Dream – Katy Perry (2010; Teenage Dream; United States)

The bit about the skintight jeans is my favourite.

149. Silent Sigh – Badly Drawn Boy (2002; About A Boy OST; United Kingdom)

As featured in the absolutely cracking film About A Boy.

148. Well Thought Out Twinkles – Silversun Pickups (2007; Carnavas; United States)

One of several standout tracks from my phase of only listening to SP bands. And bookmakers.

147. Getting Away With It (All Messed Up) – James (2001; Pleased To Meet You; United Kingdom)

I have always liked the throwaway line about drinking one’s weight.

146. Young Folks – Peter Bjorn And John & Victoria Bergsman (2006; Writer’s Block; Sweden)

This song signifies the birth of the hipster movement.

145. Hey Ya! – OutKast (2003; Speakerboxxx/The Love Below; United States)

This is my go-to track for karaoke madness at the Possum.

144. Before It’s Too Late (Sam and Mikaela’s Theme) – Goo Goo Dolls (2007; Transformers: The Album; United States)

You are not permitted to wear that Enough LeBeouf shirt until you’ve watched this video.

143. Fuck Forever – Babyshambles (2005; Down In Albion; United Kingdom)

Fantastic song to sing along to at the top of your voice.

142. Hot N Cold – Katy Perry (2008; One Of The Boys; United States)

I declared while playing barefoot bowls that this was the party track of that summer.

141. Land Of A Thousand Words – Scissor Sisters (2006; Ta-Dah; United States)

Break-up song. Queue tears.

140. Without Me – Eminem (2002; The Eminem Show; United States)

Just think about how empty my life would be without me. Just kidding – funny song.

139. There, There – Radiohead (2003; Hail To The Thief; United Kingdom)

All the songs on this album had alternate titles. There, There’s was The Boney King Of Nowhere.

138. If I Were A Boy – Beyoncé (2008; I Am… Sasha Fierce; United States)

If I were a boy I probably wouldn’t enjoy this song as much as I do.

137. Dry Your Eyes – Streets (2004; A Grand Don’t Come For Free; United Kingdom)

I was once asked if the lyrics of this song had particular resonance with me. Every song does.

136. Like I Love You – Justin Timberlake & Clipse (2002; Justified; United States)

And if it’s up to me I guarantee your face will change.

135. Aerials – System Of A Down (2002; Toxicity; United States/Lebanon/Armenia)

I’m one of those people that always wants to play but can never take losing.

134. Let’s Fall Back In Love – Slow Club (2008; Let’s Fall Back In Love; United Kingdom)

This song first came to my attention through its use in a Vodafone commercial. I hate myself for that.

133. Hash Pipe – Weezer (2001; Weezer; United States)

Falsetto should be employed more in drug-themed songs by antehipsters.

132. Irreplaceable – Beyoncé (2006; B’Day; United States)

I insist that you enjoy this song on the left.

131. White & Nerdy – “Weird Al” Yankovic (2006; Straight Outta Lynwood; United States)

Love a good renaissance fair reference.

130. Fidelity – Regina Spektor (2006; Begin To Hope; Russia/United States)

More than in any other song I hope I sound like Regina when I sing along to Fidelity.

129. Cruel Guards – Panics (2007; Cruel Guards; Australia)

Song about antidepressants. You’ll need them after listening.

128. Fight Test – Flaming Lips (2002; Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots; United States)

This song is very similar lyrically and musically to Father And Son by Cat Stevens.

127. Whatever You Like – TI (2008; Paper Trail; United States)

The difference in meaning between the original and clean lyrics is phenomenal.

126. Time To Pretend – MGMT (2007; Oracular Spectacular; United States)

Drugs + Paris = Good Song.
