Top 300 Songs of the 2000s, #180 - 171

Jay-Z: Still more of a gentleman than Chris Brown.

#180 - Roses (2004)
by OutKast

Caroline! She's the reason for the word bitch...

They deserve points for the simple fact that they wrote a song with the word 'poo' in it and still managed to make it cool. In your face Caroline!

#179 - I Will Follow You Into The Dark (2006)
by Death Cab For Cutie

If there's no one beside you when your soul embarks,
Then I'll follow you into the dark...

Emo love song? But it's a good emo love song, so it gets a spot. 

#178 - Bodysnatchers (2008)
by Radiohead

Has the light gone out for you?
Because the light's gone for me...

So, Radiohead fans... I'd better get this out of the way now. You're not going to be seeing any more Radiohead songs in this countdown. They did very well in the 90s list, but I just wasn't as big a fan of their more recent works. Sorry? 

#177 - I Won't Be Left (2004)
by Tegan and Sara

I won't be left, dancing alone to songs from the past...

#176 - Murder on the Dancefloor (2001)
by Sophie Ellis-Bextor

If you think you're getting away,
I will prove you wrong...

'Murder on the Dancefloor;' such a random song. Such a random music video. Sophie Ellis-Bextor could be the most random act in music. Well, she was. What does she do these days? 

#175 - Outside of Me (2002)
by Killing Heidi

Do you see it? Do you feel it? Well I mean it...

Killing Heidi may be long gone, but we can take solace in the fact that Ella and Jesse Hooper are still making awesome music that no one pays attention to in the form of The Verses. Go pay attention to them. 

#174 - Easy Tonight (2002)
by Five For Fighting

Shot down, said you never had the chance,
Took a ride on a suicide romance...

#173 - Not Fair (2009)
by Lily Allen

There's just one thing that's getting in the way,
When we go up to bed you're just no good it's such a shame...

Please give a warm welcome to Ms Rirry Arren aka Lily Allen. Rest assured, you haven't seen the last of her (even if she's all like, yeah I'm retired).

#172 - Here (In Your Arms) (2006)
by Hellogoodbye

I like where we are, when we drive, in your car...

#171 - 99 Problems (2004)
by Jay-Z

If you having girl problems I feel bad for you son,
I got 99 problems but a b*tch ain't one...

Whatever Jay... everyone knows Beyonce wears the pants.

We're getting closer and closer to the halfway mark... are you excited. Yes, yes you are.
