Harris’ Top 110 Songs of the Decade (59-55)

Songs 59-55

59. Slither, Velvet Revolver (2005): Releasing only two albums during their time together, you might of missed them flying by had you blinked. Regardless, the power group assembled from mixing Scott Weiland (Stone Temple Pilots) and most of the remaining members of Guns and Roses (except Axel Rose) gave us one of the hardest hitting songs of the decade.
58. The Real Slim Shady, Eminem (2000): It is truly amazing to look back on ten years and realize that in 1999 we had never heard of Eminem. Now that he is one of the most controversial artists of my generation it’s nice to pay homage to his first single. This is the first, but not last appearance for Eminem on this list.
57. Take A Bow, Rihanna (2008): Probably deserving more than one song on the countdown, Rihanna had one of the most successful rises to fame over the past ten years. Appearing on dozens of songs with other artists, Rihanna has made a name for herself by taking on any project with any other performer.
56. Love Song, Sara Bareilles (2007): Universally known by almost all age groups Bareilles’ voice is one of the smoothest in the pop universe. The way her voice sounds against a piano makes her stand out and makes this one of the best songs of the decade.

55. Flathead, The Fratellis (2006): I learned about this band in one of the most peculiar ways ever. Training to become a Mac Specialist at an Apple Store this song was used in one of the training videos, stemming from it’s early use in iPod commercials. Immediately hooked I looked into the band and realized they were great. Here’s to the Scottish!
