What are your 5 FAVORITE songs this decade (since 2000)?

Simple enough. These are probably mine:

1. Beautiful Day - U2
2. The Golden Age - Beck
3. Fight Test - The Flaming Lips
4. There There - Radiohead
5. All My Friends - LCD Soundsystem

Kickass. I could listen to those 5 songs over and over the rest of my life and be perfectly content.

Honorable Mentions:

Rebellion (Lies) - The Arcade Fire
Kite - U2
How To Disappear Completely - Radiohead
Gagging Order - Radiohead
At Least That's What You Said - Wilco

I never get all the love for Optimistic. It's by far my least favorite song on Kid A. I mean, it's not like I have a problem with people loving it or anything, but I just don't see it. Better than HTDC? Better than EIIRP? Better than The National Anthem? Better than Motion Picture Soundtrack?

It's a good song but nothing too special. It's way better in the context of Kid A though.

Treefingers is the shit. It reminds me of something on the second side of David Bowie's Low

Yup.

I'd take Treefingers over Motion Picture Soundtrack. And I don't like Treefingers.


I think Optimistic is perfect. There's just something in the way Thom sings it.

Wow. I never realized many people love this song. I don't even think it's in the top 5 for best songs on the album.
