50 Best Songs of the 2000s

I've been thinking about my favorite songs of the last decade and thought it would be fun to dedicate a post to each, counting down to #1.

This list is hardly exhaustive. I'm limited by what I know: hip hop and R&B are not well represented. Neither is modern country. The list is more populist than hip (i.e., more Rolling Stone than Pitchfork).

I encourage anyone who thinks my choices are crazy (or pedestrian, or bizarre) to say so in the comments.

What makes these lists fun is criticizing them. I hope you enjoy criticizing mine.
