Top 200 Songs Of The 2000s, Part VIII (25-11)

25. Hang Me Up To Dry – Cold War Kids (2007; Robbers & Cowards; United States)

Sensational music video, great song, sang along in the Brisbane rain, met them crossing the road.

24. My Brilliant Career – Panics (2002; A House On A Street In A Town I’m From; Australia)

This song has absolutely nothing to do with the book, thank God.

23. The Origin Of Love – John Cameron Mitchell (2001; Hedwig And The Angry Inch; United States)

I did not know the origin of love before hearing this song.

22. Plans – Birds Of Tokyo (2010; Birds Of Tokyo; Australia)

Great song to hear live, great video to watch if you like glass breaking.

21. Forever Young – Youth Group (2006; Casino Twilight Dogs; Australia)

I’ve never been to the dogs at Casino but I assume it doesn’t keep you young.

20. Float On – Modest Mouse (2004; Good News For People Who Love Bad News; United States)

Happiness comes to those who wait. At least flotation will.

19. Fireflies – Owl City (2009; Ocean Eyes; United States)

A song for the dreamers.

18. She Will Be Loved – Maroon 5 (2004; Songs About Jane; United States)

The Great Gatsby.

17. Four To The Floor (Thin White Duke Remix) – Starsailor (2004; Silence Is Easy; United Kingdom)

The original is not bad either.

I love the passionate intensity of this song.

15. Pumped Up Kicks – Foster The People (2010; Torches; United States)

I like music videos that show band fraternity. This song is about a high school shooting.

14. Hands Clean – Alanis Morissette (2002; Under Rug Swept; Canada)

I blame her maturity too.

13. Meet Me On The Equinox – Death Cab For Cutie (2009; The Twilight Saga: New Moon; United States)

Just know that everything ends.
