Harris’ Top 110 Songs of the Decade (84-80)

Songs 84-80

84. Sitting, Waiting Wishing, Jack Johnson (2005): Johnson makes his first appearance on the list at #84. This song first caught my eye at its release with an amazing music video that sped through alternate realities of time and space. Johnson had to perform the song backwards so that his lips met the lyrics properly. If you haven’t seen the video go watch it right now.
83. Sweetness, Jimmy Eat World (2001): It’s hard to argue with songs like this. Almost everyone new the opening of this song back in 2001 even if they didn’t know the name of the song or band. The first of two spots represented by Jimmy Eat World, this song was one of two singles from the self titled major label debut.
82. Here’s To The Night, Eve 6 (2001): The ‘90s had Green Day and “Good Riddance” and this next decade will probably be left with this song as the graduation and moving on in life song. My first encounter with this song took place at sleep away camp and had the lyrics swapped out in order to be relevant to the groups leaving that year. For some reason this song almost always gives me goosebumps.

81. Bad Day, Daniel Powter (2005): Yet another one hit wonder on this list is making me start to question this decades one hit wonder record compared to the previous decades. Daniel Powter gave us just one song to remember him by and for that we thank him.

80. Clint Eastwood, Gorillaz (2001): The cartoon creations of producer Damon Albarn are responsible for a number of hit singles from this decade. One song stood above all the others and that’s this song named for one of the most famous actors of previous generations.
