Top 300 Songs of the 2000s, #240 - 231

Wheatus... don't worry, I don't recognise any of them either.

Today we're stepping waaay back to the early years of the decade for most of the countdown. Five songs from the year 2000 and two from 2001 make up the majority of this edition and I've got to say, these songs make it pretty easy to step back in time. What are they? You're about to find out...

#240 - You Know I'm No Good (2007)
by Amy Winehouse

Then you notice little carpet burn,
My stomach drops and my guts churn...

Oh, La Winehouse... it feels like we've been waiting forever for her next album. Luckily Back to Black never gets old, so you can listen to songs like 'You Know I'm No Good' again and again... and again and again and again. Expect to see some more from Amy as we work our way through the list.

#239 - My Happiness (2000)
by Powderfinger

If you're over there when I need you here...

We saw Bernard Fanning in the last group of ten, now we get his now former band, Powderfinger. Much like Miss Winehouse, expect to see some more of them.

#238 - Teenage Dirtbag (2000)
by Wheatus

I've got two tickets to Iron Maiden baby,
Come with my Friday, don't say maybe,
I'm just a teenage dirtbag baby, like you...

Why don't bands make music like this? Do any bands make music like this anymore? So many questions.

#237 - Don't Tell Me (2000)
by Madonna

Madonna rockin' the whole country look was pretty cool, right? You may remember that Madonna placed in the top 10 on our 80s and 90s countdowns... will she manage to do the same in the 2000s?

#236 - L.E.S Artistes (2008)
by Santigold

I can say I hope, it will be worth what I give up...

What does Santigold have in common with Amy Winehouse? It's been way too long a wait in-between albums!

#235 - Play (2001)
by Jennifer Lopez

D.J. just play that song, 'cause I wanna be dancin' all night long,
Just play my, play my, play my, play my, play my favourite song...

#234 - Just The Thing (2001)
by Paul Mac

Just give me all the love that I need,
For a night, that's enough for a broken heart.

So Paul Mac is part of Silverchair's touring band these days... ... ... awesome.

#233 - The One I Love (2005)
by David Gray

Gonna close my eyes, girl and watch you go...

One of the greatest voices of all-time and arguably his best and most popular song.

#232 - Hide U (2000)
by Kosheen

I'll hide you away from the world you rejected,
I'll hide you, I'll hide you.

#231 - Beautiful Day (2000)
by U2

Touch me, take me to that other place,
Teach me, I know I'm not a hopeless case...

What can I say... their best work was in the 80s and 90s? Still, a very good song from one of rock music's most iconic bands.

Well, ten awesome tracks... hopefully you don't struggle to get back to the year 2011 after all those songs from the start of the millennium. See you next time!
