Top 300 Songs of the 2000s, #260 - 251


After today we're fifty songs down in our 2000s countdown! What's on tap for today? A song that brought a crazy woman back into the spotlight (in a big way), three of the biggest alternative rock acts (only two are still making music together) and arguably the biggest band in the world today (not by me though). Strap yourselves in... here we go!

#260 - We Belong Together (2005)

I can't sleep at night, when you are on my mind,
Bobby Womack's on the radio...

And if they ever find me, tell the papers,
Cold wind, cold wind, cold, cold wind blowing...

Say it ain't so, I will not go,
Turn the lights off, carry me home...

Old teenage hopes are alive at your door,
Left you with nothing but they want some more...

And the boat well you know she's still rockin' it...

And the longer I wait the harder I'm gonna fall...

Please don't, please don't make amends,
See me, see me slip again...

And everything you do...
