My Top 300 Songs of the 2000s – 40-31

Today I continue my ongoing feature showcasing my personal picks for the best songs of the past decade, posting ten songs at a time.

40. Junior Senior – Move Your Feet

Lost to the forgotten one-hit wonder ether that is the early 2000’s indie world, Junior Senior’s most memorable track is one of the decade’s best, and definitely one of the danciest.  The duo was a profile-worthy pairing – a skinny little straight guy and an overweight, flamboyantly gay guy.  The spirit was one of fun-loving shimmying and partying, and “Move Your Feet” is the highlight.

Currently Digging: Jeff the Brotherhood – Live at Third Man

It just seems right that one of the finest live duos out there would end up performing for a small, raucous crowd at the headquarters of the record label for Jack White, a pioneer of loud, rocking duos all on his own.  Last year, Nashville’s Jeff the Brotherhood stopped at the White Striper’s Third Man compound and churned out an energetic set for those in attendance.  11 songs in 45 minutes, and it’s a nonstop fist-pumping affair.  You can order the madness on wax here.

My Top 300 Songs of the 2000s – 80-71

Today I continue my ongoing feature showcasing my personal picks for the best songs of the past decade, posting ten songs at a time.

80. The White Stripes – Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground

The opening track from White Blood Cells squeals to life, Jack White’s guitar screeching into a staple new-blues riff before Meg pounds in and all hell breaks loose.  For many, it would be the first we would hear from this Detroit duo, and first impressions have a lasting impact.  Jack and Meg needn’t worry – they certainly got our attention.

My Top 300 Songs of the 2000s – 200-191

Today I continue my ongoing feature showcasing my personal picks for the best songs of the past decade, posting ten songs at a time.

200. 50 Cent – I Get Money

Dr. Dre and Eminem’s protege hasn’t released anything of substance, save for this song, in my opinion.  Most would say his first album is pretty good, and that “In Da Club” is an alright song, but they are sadly mistaken.  For some reason though, this song, released late in Fiddy’s career, really took a shine to me.  Maybe it’s the snare hits, the deep synth line, or the rhythmic sampling. Maybe it’s 50’s dumb rhymes.  Maybe it’s because every time I hear this song my thoughts hearken back to a college party when a friend was trying to teach me how to C-walk to this song.  Yeah, it’s probably that last one.
