And now we break into the Top 100 of this list! But make sure you check out the first 50 songs of this list before checking out what's below.
#100 - Radiohead "No Surprises" - An awesome song about feeling suicidal. Um…yeah basically.
#99 - Red Hot Chili Peppers "Scar Tissue" - A song of isolation and recovery. A sobering track - pun somewhat intended.
#98 - Portishead "All Mine" - The scariest love song on this list.
#97 - Beyonce feat. Jay-Z "Crazy in Love" - The DC flavor drives the track. And the video. Good God.
#96 - Passion Pit "Little Secrets" - With artists like Justin Timberlake spending time away from music, Friendly Fires and Passion Pit have helped to bridge the pop gap.
#95 - Justin Timberlake feat. T.I. "My Love" - Speaking of...this song pretty much cemented Justin as an R&B star on par with his contemporaries (e.g. Usher) at the time.
#94 - Outkast "The Way You Move" - Outkast in pop mode, with an R&B feel on it, and some bass. Appealed to everyone…literally everyone.
#93 - N.E.R.D. "Lapdance" - Introduced a guy I wanted to hear more from - Lee Harvey. Didn't happen. One of the funniest tracks on the list. Party starter.
#92 - Muse "Hysteria" - Seemingly about a sudden compulsive man who wants what he wants, maybe from a prostitute. But could have a political subtext - this is Muse.
#91 - Lupe Fiasco "Kick, Push" - Underground bubbling up. Not always sure if he wasn't just capitalizing on the skate fad turned institution - but it was timely.
#90 - Kanye West "Through the Wire" - A young, super hungry Kanye, mouth wired shut. Serious lyrics and a soulful beat to match.
#89 - Here We Go Magic "Fangela" - You can't tell me you don't feel something when you listen to this song. Just feels good.
#88 - Dr. Dre feat. Snoop Dogg "Still D.R.E." - The piano sample is oddly, repetitively dope. And then, Snoop is on it…that's enough.
#87 - Coldplay "Trouble" - People like to make fun of Martin's feministic tendency in the lyrics and piano. But he's mostly used it to great effect - specifically on the debut album and this track.
#86 - Elbow "Grounds for Divorce" - Heard everywhere. The rare awesome Brit song that had broad appeal. I never go angry when I heard it for the 50th time in a day.
#85 - Bj0rk "Hunter" - Probably could have had other songs on this list. Ethereal and provocative. Like nothing else on this list.
#84 - Jay-Z "Takeover" - Took over the #1 spot with this - hasn't really let it go since.
#83 - Skream "Midnight Request Line" - Single-handedly put dubstep into the necessary ears.
#82 - Arctic Monkeys "I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor" - Is he one of the best songwriters of the last 10-15 years…or more?
#81 - Doves "Black and White Town" - Rock for the adults - best feature of Doves is the maturity the put in everything. They always sing and play like grown men.
#80 - Incubus "Wish You Were Here" - Song title says it. One of the best songs ever for longing.
#79 - Jagged Edge feat. Nelly "Where The Party At?" - For a while there, both Jagged Edge and Nelly were untouchable when it came to helping girls get on the dance floor.
#78 - Bloc Party "Helicopter" - Political, fast, with an Asian drummer, and a black homosexual at the lead. Awesome post punk…actually wish this mini-era lasted longer.
#77 - Gwen Stefani "Hollaback Girl" - Even Chris Rock's jokes got better thanks to this song.
#76 - Grizzly Bear "Two Weeks" - Those pianos again. (Did the slow down the pianos from Still DRE, like Kanye did with XXXplosive drums???...I kid.) Sunniest song about a crappy relationship with a clingy parter.
