Having somebody rank my list at 1st and another rank it last did make me chuckle. Glad you both enjoyed it. Oh, and Lance, I'm totally blaming you for my low ranking. (I'm actually somewhat shocked that I wasn't in the bottom two, truth be told.)

It's all good, pretty sure your ranking wouldn't have made more than the difference of one spot, if that.

In all honesty the only list I'm surprised at the placement of is Phanan's list. It really didn't click with me at all, if it wasn't for the strength of the last five tracks I probabaly would have ranked it bottom. Still congrats to everyone

I can't speak for anyone else but the rankings made this really fun. It would be neat to do this in future editions.

3. LemonMelon

Total Points: 123

Highest Ranking: 2nd
Lowest Ranking: 8th



As I'm sure was the case with many of you, creating a compilation of my favorite songs of the 2000s held a special significance. The majority of those entering the competition are either in their teens or early/mid twenties, which means that this particular decade probably enlightened them to the underground music scene at large, or perhaps even the mainstream. While creating a compilation from a decade you weren't born in certainly has value, as truly great music is timeless and moves each of us regardless of when we were born, creating a list of songs released during the time in which your tastes matured is an intriguing challenge. There are a thousand ways to attack it, but I elected to simply pick the songs that have been significant to me over the past 5 years or so, as I didn't start listening to more current music until around 2004. So yeah, the track listing is slightly imbalanced; only 7 of these 19 songs were released before then. However, I feel this playlist is an excellent representation of my tastes, and what I consider the most notable songs of the decade. And for all the Mr. Braus out there, yes, I know this is the whitest collection of music imaginable. I made that cover just for you.

Track listing:

1. TV On The Radio - "I Was A Lover" - Return To Cookie Mountain (4:20)
2. Arcade Fire - "Keep The Car Running" - Neon Bible (3:28)
3. Spoon - "Everything Hits At Once" - Girls Can Tell (4:02)
4. Radiohead - "Weird Fishes/Arpeggi" - In Rainbows (5:17)
5. Wilco - "Pot Kettle Black" - Yankee Hotel Foxtrot (4:00)
6. The National - "Fake Empire" - Boxer (3:24)
7. Sufjan Stevens - "Chicago" - Come On! Feel The Illinoise! (6:05)
8. Beck - "Lost Cause" - Sea Change (3:47)
9. The Shins - "Kissing The Lipless" - Chutes Too Narrow
10. Flight Of The Conchords - "The Most Beautiful Girl (In The Room)" - Flight Of The Conchords (4:00)
11. Yeah Yeah Yeahs - "Soft Shock" - It's Blitz! (3:53)
12. Phoenix - "1901" - Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix (3:12)
13. U2 - "When I Look At The World" - All That You Can't Leave Behind (4:16)
14. Doves - "Snowden" - Some Cities (4:11)
15. Coldplay - "Strawberry Swing" - Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends (4:07)
16. Grizzly Bear - "Two Weeks" - Veckatimest (4:03)
17. Broken Social Scene - "Lover's Spit" - You Forgot It In People (6:22)
18. The Flaming Lips - "Do You Realize??" - Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots (3:32)
19. Bon Iver - "Skinny Love" - For Emma, Forever Ago (3:55)

Total run time: 79:20

My original response at seeing my ranking was: "Holy shit, who voted me #1 "

But then I saw this post

I'm fairly pleased with these rankings, though I'm surprised by how low Zoots and John were. Well, John wasn't exactly low, but you get what I mean, I'm sure.

Because of when you submitted your ranking, which was at the end, yours pretty much decided the winner. We were neck and neck up to that point.
