Top 300 Songs of the 2000s, #70 - 61

M.I.A: All she wants to do is BANG BANG BANG!!!

Our 2000s countdown is quickly coming to an end as we approach the top 50 songs of the 2000s. There's still two posts before we get to that point though and they are good... very good. Bring on the next ten!

#70 - Music Is My Hot Hot Sex (2007)
by CSS

Music is my boyfriend, music is my girlfriend,
Music is my dead end, Music is my imaginary friend...

Brazil's greatest contribution to popular music throughout the 2000s, CSS, aka Cansei de Ser Sexy, delivered two must have albums over the course of the decade. Their best song? 'Music Is My Hot Hot Sex.' One of the funnest, brightest party songs you'll ever hear. 

#69 - Jesus Walks (2004)
by Kanye West

I want to talk to God but I'm afraid,
Because we ain't spoke in so long...

Kanye's final song to chart on the countdown, the last of five songs that managed to place. Will anyone top 5 entries?  

#68 - Falling Slowly (2006)
by The Swell Season

Take this sinking boat and point it home,
We've still got time...

If you haven't seen the film Once, which stars Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova of The Swell Season, you should do it. Not now, after you've finished reading this. But do it. But finish this first.

#67 - Talk Like That (2008)
by The Presets

Turn out the lights,
Where we're going we don't need 'em tonight...

#66 - LDN (2006)
by Lily Allen

You might laugh you might frown,
Walkin' round London town...

America can have it's 'Empire State of Mind' and 'California Gurls.' If there's one song that's perfect for a city, it's Lily Allen's LDN. It's London to a tee. 

#65 - The Con (2007)
by Tegan and Sara

Calm down, I'm calling you to say,
I'm capsized staring on the edge of safe...

 #64 - Postcards From Italy (2006)
by Beirut

And I will love to see that day,
That day is mine...

#63 - Paper Planes (2008)
by M.I.A

All I wanna do is (BANG BANG BANG BANG)
And (KA-CHING)...

Likely to be M.I.A's only top ten US hit due to it being used in the Pineapple Express trailer. Oh well, at least it's awesome. 

#62 - We Used To Be Friends (2003)
by The Dandy Warhols

A long time ago, we used to be friends,
But I haven't thought of you lately at all...

#61 - Clocks (2003)
by Coldplay

Home, where I wanted to go...
