    RE: Billboard Magazine's Top 100 Songs Of The Decade 2009/12/11 16:17:19 (permalink)
    Interesting list.  I really like a lot of those songs, and some of them I find incredibly annoying (especially 'I'm Real' and 'Kiss Kiss'). 
     
    Even though 'Smooth' by Santana & Rob Thomas charted, and hit #1, in 1999, it had enough airplay and singles sales in the early part of 2000 to make the end of decade list (it was also #1 for the first two weeks of the new decade).
     
    A note about why there are so many hip-hop & r&b songs on the list--hip-hop & r&b stations tend to play their top songs 2 to 3 times as much as other formats (like adult contemporary, adult top 40, rock, etc.) each week.  (On a hip-hop station, the top song may get 100 plays in a week while on an adult top 40 station, the top song may get 50 plays in a week).  Since airplay is significant in the charting process, hip-hop and r&b songs are at an advantage. 
     
    Hip-hop & r&b songs often have shorter chart runs because radio stations rapidly decline airplay in favor of newer songs.  Rock songs tend to have longer chart runs because they have more consistent radio airplay across a variety of formats.

    Don't cry because it's over; smile because it happened.

    Interesting list... I would say 30% of the songs I like, 70% I don't.  I am suprised the Killer's were not on the list.  If you ask me the latter part of this decade had better hits than the earlier part.

    I'm speechless. Absolutely speechless.
    I'm aware that the whole music industry today is in it's shittiest era ever.
    I'm aware that all the record company twats, all the so called 'producers' and pretty
    much everyone in the business really need to be punched in the face, maybe shot in the knee, possibly even nuked,
    but I didn't think it would ever get this bad....
    How many lists are in this thread? On all those lists, COMBINED, there's only ONE song
    that I like. And about 100 which I really hate and the rest are just boring and meaningless.
    Holy shit...

    Every single verse can make it that much worse

    I agree with Nixx's comments. I honestly think it's too early to make a best of the decade list. People like to do this as soon as a decade ends. As someone who truly only cares about the rock side, I have a hard time believing bands like Trapt, Crossfade and Three Days Grace are going to be the bands that are remembered from the decade. A lot of the 2000's sadly was a decade with poor taste in music and flash-in-the-pan performers getting hit songs because they sounded exactly like their predecessors.

    On the Top 100 overall, I've never heard of a lot of those songs, and I'm fine with that. There's only a couple on that list I would even listen to.

    Anyone here who knows me from reading my various rants knows that commentary on anything involved with these lists would be less than savory, so I'll just say 'WHATEVER' and go listen to my 'Have A Nice Day' CDs like the music dinosaur that I am.

    ORIGINAL: Rocky

    I honestly think it's too early to make a best of the decade list. People like to do this as soon as a decade ends.

    I think you're right, but, I think that would apply more to magazines like Blender or Rolling Stone which use subjectivity when compiling their lists. I think it's okay for Billboard to put out their list now because their list is based on objective data--how many times songs were played on the radio, the audience each song reached and the number of times a song was downloaded and/or number of retail singles sold. Billboard lists have nothing to do with quality, song meaning, historical significance, etc., as songs are solely ranked by performance. How a song performed when it was originally released won't change in 10 years (while the 'significance' of a song may change in years to come).

    I have a hard time believing bands like Trapt, Crossfade and Three Days Grace are going to be the bands that are remembered from the decade.

    Those were bands who achieved a significant amount of airplay on rock radio stations. For rock-specific publications (which cater to rock enthusiasts and purists) who compile the best songs of the decade, Trapt, Crossfade, Three Days Grace and a host of others will probably be absent from those lists. That's something to look forward to, I guess!

    I enjoyed the mainstream music of this decade, for the most part. I've accepted the fact that I'm always going to be in the minority (or silent majority?) when it comes to musical tastes. 20 years from now, I think there will be a greater appreciation for songs of this decade, similar to the way that songs from the 80s have a new found 'sense of nostalgia' to them.

    Don't cry because it's over; smile because it happened.

    A note about why there are so many hip-hop & r&b songs on the list--hip-hop & r&b stations tend to play their top songs 2 to 3 times as much as other formats (like adult contemporary, adult top 40, rock, etc.) each week. (On a hip-hop station, the top song may get 100 plays in a week while on an adult top 40 station, the top song may get 50 plays in a week). Since airplay is significant in the charting process, hip-hop and r&b songs are at an advantage.


    And that is exactly why I don't trust these lists.  Radio has too much clout when it comes to determining how "popular" a song is.  I hope there is a similar Billboard Albums of the Decade list, since we know that that list is based solely on how many albums were sold.

    Mr. Diva, I have decided to do the following -
     
    Since you were kind enough to listen to some of the songs I posted on my '70s music list I am going to conduct a '00s music listen-&-rate-athon.
     
    Rather than just dismiss an entire decade of music, I will go on YouTube and listen to each and every one of these songs, 10 at a time, and rate them.
     
    I have heard of a few of these songs, but most I have not. Nonetheless, I will give every song on this list a fair chance to impress me.
     
    I will be as open minded as I can for a guy who doesn't care for rap music (I DO like good r&b - repeat, GOOD r&b).
     
    I will base my ratings on various factors such as lyrics, musicality, vocal performances, flow, structure, 'surprises,' singing vs noise, memorable moments, etc.
     
    My rating system is as follows:
     
    1 - This song is EXACTLY WHY I gave up on the music of the '00s.
    2 - Yuck!
    3 - I may listen to this song a couple more times, but I'd rather leave it than take it.
    4 - I would actually consider downloading this song.
    5 - I need to rethink my thinking about the '00s - THIS SONG COOKS!
     
    I will go from 100 all the way to #1 - so GOOD LUCK musical artists!

    PS - The rating is for the SONG ONLY, not the music vid that goes with it!

    Another PS - Artists, remember, sampling is gonna get you off to a bad start before your song even gets a chance to try and impress me!
     
    Also, overuse of electronic altering of your voice - see above!

    And that is exactly why I don't trust these lists.  Radio has too much clout when it comes to determining how "popular" a song is.  I hope there is a similar Billboard Albums of the Decade list, since we know that that list is based solely on how many albums were sold.

    I agree about airplay.  We have no control over what songs the radio stations choose to play, so if it was up to me, Lil' Wayne songs wouldn't get 80-100 plays per radio station per week.

    Billboard also released a list of the top selling albums of the decade.  While I agree with you about pure number of albums sold, I think the albums released earlier in the decade (before the digital age of acquiring music) were at a distinct advantage.  Album sales have really declined in recent years, so the top 20 albums are all from the first part of the decade...
    1. NSYNC - No Strings Attached (2000)
    2. Usher - Confessions (2004)
    3. Eminem - The Eminem Show (2002)
    4. Norah Jones - Come Away With Me (2002)
    5. Creed - Human Clay (1999*)
    6. Britney Spears - Oops!...I Did It Again (2000)
    7. Eminem - The Marshall Mathers LP (2000)
    8. The Beatles - 1 (2000)
    9. Santana - Supernatural (1999*)
    10. Nelly - Country Grammar (2000)
    11. Linkin Park - Hybrid Theory (2000)
    12. 50 Cent - Get Rich Or Die Tryin' (2003)
    13. Nickelback - All The Right Reasons (2005)
    14. Carrie Underwood - Some Hearts (2005)
    15. Shaggy - Hotshot (2000)
    16. Enya - A Day Without Rain (2000)
    17. Dr. Dre - 2001 (2000)
    18. Limp Bizkit - Chocolate Starfish And The Hot Dog Flavored Water (2000)
    19. Evanescence - Fallen (2003)
    20. O Brother, Where Art Thou (Soundtrack) (2000)

    The rest of the list, beginning with #21 through #200, starts here:

    Mr. Diva, I have decided to do the following -

    I think it's very brave of you to check out all of these songs.  I can tell you right now, several of them aren't very good, and are downright annoying!

    In order to (possibly) avoid a bunch of annoying songs, I suggest you do the same thing (YouTube the songs) with my top 100 of the decade.  You'd probably (or might) find a lot more songs you like!
    http://www.annoyatorium.com/tm.aspx?m=335551&mpage=4&key=&#345972
     
    ..and, I'd be interested to know what you think of my favorite songs from the decade instead of some ridiculously stupid song like 'I'm Real' by Jennifer Lopez featuring Ja Rule.

    If I survive what I'm doing, I will check your lsit out.
     
    But I've started the quest to familiarize myself with '00s music and there's no turning back now (may God have mercy on my musical soul).

    You should check my list out first!  If you listen to all of those 'other' songs first, you're never going to want to hear music from this decade again!  I can't picture you watching 'Let Me Blow Ya Mind' on YouTube, and liking it.  However, I can picture you watching Dido's 'Here With Me' and thinking 'maybe that wasn't so bad.'

    Don't cry because it's over; smile because it happened.

    98. Try Again - Aaliyah  1
    97. Hey There Delilah - Plain White T's  3

    95. Let Me Blow Ya Mind - Eve featuring Gwen Stefani  1
    94. Girlfriend - Avril Lavigne  1
    93. Kiss Kiss - Chris Brown featuring T-Pain  1
    92. So What - Pink  3
    91. Stronger - Kanye West  2.5
     
    Comments: 

    #96, #95 and #93 made me cry on the inside they were so horrible.

    #91 I couldn't quite put my finger on - the sampling of Daft Punk kept it from being a 1, and I hate sampling, so I don't know why I gave it a 2.5, but I just couldn't despise it, so this would be my surprise song of the group.

    Best song of the group - 'Forever' by Chris Brown

    So no song deserved a 4 of 5 in this group. (yet - I'll cross my fingers)
     
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
     
    If anyone wants to know why I gave a particular song its rating I'll try to explain, otherwise I'll just let the rating speak for itself.

    So no song deserved a 4 of 5 in this group (yet - I'll cross my fingers).

    If want to continue with the Billboard's top 100 for the decade over my list which probably has more songs you'd like, then I can tell you right now which songs you don't even have to subject yourself to because they're not too good!  I could've told you that 'Kiss Kiss' was a miserable song (and, in fact, I already mentioned that in this thread).

    Songs you should AVOID (the worst of the worst):
    23. Crank That (Soulja Boy) - Soulja Boy
    30. I'm Real - Jennifer Lopez featuring Ja Rule
    32. Hot In Herre - Nelly
    37. Live Your Life - T.I. featuring Rihanna
    38. Baby Boy - Beyonce featuring Sean Paul
    39. Lollipop - Lil' Wayne featuring Static Major
    48. Drop It Like It's Hot - Snoop Dogg featuring Pharrell
    50. Get Busy - Sean Paul
    59. 1,2 Step - Ciara featuring Missy Elliott
    62. Ain't It Funny - Jennifer Lopez featuring Ja Rule
    63. Temperature - Sean Paul
    70. Get Low - Lil' Jon & East Side Boyz
    72. Right Thurr - Chingy
    76. Smack That - Akon featuring Eminem
    82. Always On Time - Ja Rule featuring Ashanti

    I know there's a lot more than that on this list you're not going to like, but, I'm trying to save you time (and your ears).  This is my favor to you!  Plus, there's a much better list of 100 songs you could always check out instead...

    Don't cry because it's over; smile because it happened.
