Harris’ Top 110 Songs of the Decade (69-65)

Songs 69-65

69. Dirt Off Your Shoulder, Jay-Z (2003): One of the greatest rappers and performers of our generation was very busy during this decade even in after his “retirement.” The man who inspired Kanye West, Jay-Z seems to always be at the top of his game as he produces hit song after hit song.
68. Chop Suey!, System of a Down (2001): One of the most under recongnized bands of the past ten years, System of a Down made metal mainstream with a string of singles mostly from the 2001 release of “Toxicity.”
67. 4 Minutes, Justin Timberlake (2008): Teaming up with Madonna and super-producer Timbaland, Timberlake has put together some of the best songs of the decade but this one stands above the rest for me. The collection of players on this song and the perfect arrangement gives it a slight edge over the others.
66. Bouncing Off The Walls, Sugarcult (2001): Releasing a slew of singles in the decade, Sugarcult became one of the go to party bands over the past ten years. This song made a lasting impression and is still played in venues and covered by many modern day pop-rock bands.

65. Time To Pretend, MGMT (2008): 2008 was dominated by this song as it seemed to appear in all walks of our lives. From the opening credits of “21” and beyond this song was my #1 song of the year last year and now continues to make impressions at #65 for the decade.
