Holy fuck, I love this song. A shame that these punks could never make a full album as good as songs like this one, "Be-In," "Ride," "Boys Better," "Not If You Were the Last Junkie on Earth," etc..

When I fell in love with the song, I heard the whole album and was really disappointed. I have not found one other song by them I like. (Granted, I've only heard two of their albums.)

I love their their song "We Used To Be Friends" but that's mostly because it was the opening credits song on Veronica Mars.

Great lists, Cori. I fail to see, though, why there should be a segregation of the "Big Dumb Pop Songs" from all the others. What's the difference, really? They're all songs. Are "Hey Ya!", "Extraordinary", "Take Me Out", "In My Place", "All These Things That I've Done", etc. not big, dumb pop songs in essence? I believe they are.

I just get disillusioned sometimes with the whole placing music into certain genres/boxes thing. I mean, really, what's the difference between Robbie Williams and Coldplay, for example? Not much, when you think about it. One of them might have more of a traditional "rock" sound at times and be more readily accepted as a legitimate artist, but they both write big, dumb pop songs when it comes down to it. That might be a bad example. I don't know.

Most everything on both of those lists is "pop." I guess that's what I'm trying to say. Or maybe I don't know what the fuck I'm trying to say.

You're overthinking it, my dear darling Gaffer. I made a separate list only because I wanted to. I spent so much of the past decade waxing rhapsodic about my favorite big, dumb pop songs, I felt they deserved their own list.

I had the same thought about Hey Ya and some of the other songs on the larger list, though. But I wasn't going to sweat over it. I just wanted to list stuff I loved without spending two hours trying to decide if Robbie Williams went on list A or list B.

Can we all take a moment and acknowledge that this statement has probably never before or will ever again be uttered.

Not the right decade, but I wanted to be sure to post this, before bidding farewell to the Dandys (I mean, big + dumb pop doesn't get much better than this, if you ask me):

YouTube - The Dandy Warhols - Not If You Were The Last Junkie On Earth (HD Official Video)

Yeah, definitely.

I'm blaming it on New Year's Eve stress. I always get really antsy and anxious on NYE. It's actually Dick Clark's fault for inventing the holiday.

At least I'll be drinking a bunch of cheap champagne later.

NYE is the most overrated night of the year for me. I can have a night that would be considered awesome if it were any other night of the year, but because it's NYE it seems a little flat. Always.

I struggled with putting even one album on there. The first two albums didn't hold up for me throughout the decade, and it almost seems too soon to put No Line on a best of the decade for me.

I almost put ATYCLB on the list instead, since I did love it when it came out, it seemed more representative of the band in the decade ... and then I said "fuck it, this one's my favorite of the decade, it's going on the list."

It's funny - I was doing some overthinking of my own after I had posted that, and was walking to my car to go home (WHOOT HALF DAY WHOOT), and it probably came across like I was segregating my pop songs from the rest of the list, but it's really far from it: I love them so much, I wanted to call them out separately. Which is kind of dumb and weird, but I decided I didn't care.

Just wanted to put it out there to say that I wasn't putting them separate because I didn't feel like they belonged with the rest of the "real" songs or anything. Far from it.

Upon further reflection, Hey Ya should be on the pop list. But in my head, I think Outkast = hip hop, and not lumped in with my Big Dumb Pop stuff. But whatever. Overthinking = I does it well.

Oh, and to tie all of that into laz's comment, U2 is such a separate beast for me, it's hard to list U2 albums and songs in any lists of favorites. I feel like I spend so much time obsessing over them, they need a separate list of their own. So maybe I should do a top 10 U2 songs of the decade or something, too. But probably not now ... probably later, when I'm bored out of my gourd and nicely buzzed on a drink or two.
