The 100 best songs of the first decade of the 2000s (90-81)

(Click here for the whole list.)

90. Shout Out Louds — "Tonight I Have to Leave It"

The part where he says "Give love, give love…" sounds kind of like Queen's "Under Pressure" except played by the Cure.

89. Kate Havnevik — "New Day"

The vocals are simple, but the electronics in this song are amazing.

88. The Notwist — "Pilot"

87. Owen Pallet (formerly known as Final Fantasy) — "Song Song Song"

86. Sophie Ellis-Bextor — "Me and My Imagination"

85. Ted Leo and the Pharmacists — "Counting Down the Hours"

84. Kylie Minogue — "Can't Get You out of My Head"

A more dramatic version by the Flaming Lips:

83. Iron & Wine — "On Your Wings"

82. Uh Huh Her — "Not a Love Song"

81. Locksley — "Don't Make Me Wait"

(Full disclosure, I know them from high school.)
