1999 release, Mikal. Feel free to include Weathered though.

"All My Friends" is my song of the decade, and it's really not even close. There's no way I'm doing that list though. It would push into the 500s easily.

I didn't know you were an Amos Lee fan.

This is my favorite song of the decade. It's rather short, but it packs a serious emotional punch:

YouTube - We Have to Go Back

I feel like I really need to watch that. Maybe starting from the beginning will be a good way to break in the BD player.

Hilariously enough, one of his albums is looking like it might make my list. Not the one with "All My Friends" on it though.

However, LCD's "All My Friends" kicks the Amos Lee song's ass all over the place, without a doubt.

Quite possibly the greatest pop culture moment of the decade? Where an entire nation of TV viewers jumped up from their sofas screaming WTF????

Yeah, that's kinda what I was getting at. I was also in a goofy mood and felt like posting a clip from Lost in a music thread for some reason. Anyway...

This is certainly not any sort of finalized list but just off the top of my head some of my favorite songs of the decade from some of my favorite artists. And a few that I feel sort of define the 2000s:

"Pyramid Song" and "Reckoner" by THE HEAD!
"Wake Up" and "Rebellion (Lies)" by Arcade Fire
"We Don't Care" by Kanye West
"Imitation of Life" by R.E.M.
"Take A Bow" and "Umbrella" by Rihanna
"Someday" and "Last Nite" by The Strokes
"Paper Planes" by M.I.A.
"Beautiful Day" and "City of Blinding Lights" by U2
"Hey Ya!" by THE KAST!
"Chicago" and "Casimir Pulaski Day" by Sufjan Stevens
"Fake Empire" by THE NASH!
"Ball and Biscuit" and "Fell In Love Wif A Girl" by The White Stripes
"Such Great Heights" by Postal Service
"One Day Like This" by Elbow
"LDN" by Lily Allen
"Helicopter" by Bloc Party
"Touch Me I Think I'm Going To Scream Pt. 2" and "One Big Holiday" by My Morning Jacket
"Stan" by Eminem
"Take Me Out" by Franz Ferdinand
"Maps" by Yeah Yeah Yeahs
"Stuck Between Stations" by The Hold Steady

And I will stop now because I could probably keep listing shit for a long time and I have to go eat dinner.
