10 and 1 - Best Songs of All Time, 2000 Edition




Remember when I used to post a 10 and 1 every week? No... neither do I. But hey, here we are with the first one since August 2015 so... yeah. Hey. What you do wit' your bad self? Anyway, I found my collection of old CD's that I burned with music I liked back in the day and tried to play some of them to see if they still worked. A lot of them didn't. One of them did though and here we are, me with some inspiration to write something and you with some... time... to waste or something? Anyway, as always, thanks for spending it with me for as long as it takes your purty fingers to scroll on down. "What was this CD you were talking about?" you say, as you try to burn the memory of the words 'purty fingers' from your mind. It's made up of eleven songs, ranked from #1 to #11, of 12 year old me's favourite songs. How do I know this? The simple title on the CD... 'Best Songs of All Time, 2000'. That kid was great, thinking he could have a favourite song. Never putting on weight. Looking tanned all the time. What? We were talking about how these days it's not even possible to think of a list of the best songs of all time. That's just crazy talk. But Matt Bond, age 12? He knew what was what. So, come with me music fans and discover what I used to think were the greatest songs to ever be delivered unto us. Ten of them hold up quite well. One, not so much. So there's your 10 and 1 scenario. Let's get to it...


BEST SONGS OF ALL TIME
(according to 12 year old me):


THE TEN:


KILLING ME SOFTLY
by The Fugees




MASCARA
by Killing Heidi




BRICK
by Ben Folds Five 
 



MISS YOU LOVE
by Silverchair




SLIDE
by Goo Goo Dolls




SHIMMER

DEEPER WATER

SANTA MONICA

MISSING
by Everything But The Girl




THE ONE:


NOBODY KNOWS
by The Tony Rich Project




Why? What were you thinking, me? Nobody knows it but me but I don't know what was going on here. Did I fall for the silky smooth vocals? For the most part, I seemed to fall into a commercial adult alternative sound way back when, but here we are with Tony Rich and what ever happened to Tony Rich and his project? So many questions for which we might never have answers. I suppose we could just Google those last ones, but meh. Those vocals are smooth though, right? Maybe 12 year old me wasn't so crazy after all...
