Best Of 2000s Results Thread

Gonna get this going in a bit, and will post the order in between lunch, meetings, conference calls, useless interruptions, and so forth.

Unfortunately, I never received rankings from AtomicBono and Lancemc. Neither has gotten back to me, so their playlists have been removed from the final tallies and each individual ranking list. That means we'll have 14 playlists overall.

Be back in a bit with our Lanterne Rouge.

While I don't think the top 3 would have changed if we had the other two playlists, I have a feeling that there would have been a slight difference in the order, particularly in the second half of the rankings. Spots 11, 12 and 13 are all within six points of each other.

14. GirlsAloudFan

Total Points: 30

Highest Ranking: 8th
Lowest Ranking: 14th


Modern Girls

I'm pretty proud of this playlist. I think it's probably the most poptastic playlist in DI history. And, unless Screwtape has done it before, I think it's the first DI entry to feature only female vocalists. I've also represented each year of the decade here. I hope it's a fun listen for you guys. Somethin' a little different. No matter what, I know Axver will love it.

GAF's list wasn't bad, completely against the tastes that rule here though, to me it was more mixed, I didn't hate all the pop but the quality varied, still it was good and a fun listen too

The next two coming were a bit higher on my own list, and I'm a little disappointed they are really low here, but that's the way it goes. Can't say I'm surprised though.

Sorz, GAF. Womanizer being your Britney pick kinda summed it up for me; with stronger song choices, this could have been a guilty pleasure for me, but it kinda fell short in that area.

Aw shit. I had no idea the deadline for rankings came and went. I could have sworn it was Oct 31st for some reason.

I just went in and found your PMs too Phanan. Sorry I missed them. But that's OK, I wasn't too concerned about getting my list in the ranking anyway. It was really just an excuse to make that cover art.

You get an honorable mention just for that cover.

Your list was doing fairly well, just so you know.

If awards were given out for this edition, GAF would certainly get one for most courageous playlist.

Pi –The Best of The 2000’s

“Bookends of ice and snow; the end of the story is a return to the start. We are lost by year’s end, tried and hoping for another. In a kingdom of white, the hope and dream of a new start is crystallized. This cycle of solid to shattered and mended to melted has rarely been as evident as in this decade. So, how does one measure a circular life?”

Often I hear and read that music today is terrible. In the mainstream they’d probably be right. If you know how to find it though this has been a decade rich in great songs, albums and artists. In fact, for the 80 minutes allowed it has been far too rich. I realized quickly that this playlist couldn’t feature my picks for best songs of the decade (most of which are over five minutes and closer to eight) or a fair representation of the decade’s diversity. I struggled more on this playlist than any other. In the end, I just decided to not over think it anymore and just come up with a unified piece. While not every deserving album, artist and song are here, I do think this playlist is a great answer to those that think music is terrible today.

I added the years next to each song. Looking at the playlist it is clear that recent albums, for better or worse, seemed to have an advantage over the rest of the decade. I’m curious if this was the case for anyone else. The biggest examples are “We Are The People” and “Rabbit Heart” (which people might remember from the radio interview before U2’s Sheffield broadcast) which both snuck in thanks to being recent musical discoveries. A year from now the playlist might have looked very different.

1. Todd Rundgren- “God Said” –Liars (7:35) [2004]
2. Empire of The Sun- “We Are The People”-Walking On A Dream (4:27) [2008]
3. Bat For Lashes- “Two Planets” –Two Suns (4:48) [2009]
4. Kate Bush- “King of The Mountain” –Aerial (4:54) [2005]
5. Florence & The Machine- “Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up)” –Lungs (3:52) [2009]
6. Metric- “Poster of A Girl” –Live It Out (4:49) [2005]
7. Moby- “Shot In The Back of The Head” –Wait For Me (3:16) [2009]
8. Morrissey- “Life Is A Pigsty” –Ringleader of the Tormentors (7:23) [2006]
9. Najwa Nimri- “Lord of Nations” –Carefully (4:53) [2001]
10. U2- “Fez-Being Born” –No Line On The Horizon (5:17) [2009]
11. MGMT- “Of Moons, Birds & Monsters” –Oracular Spectacular (4:47) [2007]
12. St. Vincent- “Black Rainbow” –Actor (4:11) [2009]
13. Coldplay- “Spell A Rebel Yell” –Violet Hill (2:47) [2008]
14. Dresden Dolls- “The Jeep Song” –The Dresden Dolls (4:51) [2003]
15. Tori Amos- “Taxi Ride” –Scarlet’s Walk (4:02) [2002]
16. The Verve- “Sit and Wonder” –Forth (6:52) [2008]

Total Time: 78:34

As you can see, there was a big jump in points from 14th to 13th.
