Top 300 Songs of the 2000s, #270 - 261



Scissor Sisters... in happier times.

Happy Saturday boys and girls... is everyone sweating it up like I am right now? Don't answer that. All I'll say is that I'd rather be in one of the snowstorms in the USA. So nice. So cold. Anyway, how 'bout that countdown? Which countdown? This countdown! Ten more amazing songs from the 2000s, coming right up...


#270 - Take Your Mama (2004)
by Scissor Sisters




And if the music ain't good, well it's just too bad,
We're gonna sing along no matter what...


The quality of the Scissor Sisters' work may have declined with each release, but during 2004 they were one of the most critically celebrated bands in the world. No one can take that away from them.


#269 - Hate To Say I Told You So (2000)
by The Hives




Do what I please, gonna spread the disease, because I wanna...


#268 - Reason Is Treason (2004)
by Kasabian




I hear the sounds all around...


Kasabian are on the verge of super stardom. As we wait for their next release, everyone should be checking out their back catalogue which is chock-full-of-goodness like 'Reason Is Treason.'


#267 - American Idiot (2004)
by Green Day




Now everybody do the propaganda,
And sing along to the age of paranoia...


'American Idiot' makes three songs from 2004 in today's edition. Was 2004 the best year in the decade? We've still got a way to go so let's just say... maybe. Getting back to 'American Idiot,' the song cemented Green Day's place as one of the biggest rock bands in the world, earning them commercial and critical acclaim plus a ton of Grammy recognition.


#266 - Gold Digger (2005)
by Kanye West ft. Jamie Foxx




18 years, 18 years,
She got one of your kids got you for 18 years...


#265 - Without Me (2002)
by Eminem




I'm interesting, the best thing since wrestling,
Investing in your kids ears and nesting...


The first time we've seen Eminem on the countdown. Definitely not the last.


#264 - This Old Love (2005)
by Lior




Oh, and time moves on like a train,
That disappears into the night sky...


You knew there had to be at least one amazing song by an Australian artist and here's Lior. Luckily for you, he's our first of TWO amazing songs by Australian artists on today's countdown.


#263 - Fallin' (2001)
by Alicia Keys




Sometimes I feel good, at times I feel used...


Virtually as good as a debut single gets. 'Fallin' would win Keys three Grammys, spend time at number one in a huge range of markets and set her up to become one of the biggest female artists of the decade. Not too shabby.


#262 - Somewhere Only We Know (2004)
by Keane




Oh simple thing where have you gone?
I'm getting old and I need something to rely on...


#261 - Coin Laundry (2009)
by Lisa Mitchell


Do you have a dollar, do you have a dollar for me?


This would be that second amazing song by an Australian artist. Like you didn't know...


See you tomorrow for the next ten!
