Harris’ Top 110 Songs of the Decade (34-30)

Songs 34-30

34. When It’s Over, Sugar Ray (2001): Although their moderate success came one decade early, 2001 saw a brand new self titled album from Sugar Ray. The smoothest band in rock, this bands style has drifted away but the amazing songs they provided are timeless.
33. My Way, Limp Bizkit (2001): It’s not for everyone. Limp Bizkit can be extremely offensive and straight vulgar in their lyrics at times. Regardless this band and more importantly this album, “Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water” is one of the best of the decade and this song was great. Made famous for me by the WWF, it was used as the theme song for WrestleMania X-Seven (17).
32. Bye Bye Bye, *NSYNC (2000): I’m a little shocked that this song didn’t climb higher on my list but you can’t deny this songs lasting power. The one hangover from the previous decade, NSYNC released two multi-platinum albums in the decade and this song was the second best performing song on them. Performing incredibly internationally, “Bye Bye Bye” reached #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2000.
31. Unwell, Matchbox 20 (2003): Known for their hit singles in the ‘90s Matchbox 20 spent much of the decade watching Rob Thomas make a name for himself on his own. During their time together they put out more smash singles. This song is my favorite as it reached #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2003.

30. Collide, Howie Day (2004): If I say Howie Day to you, you respond with “Collide.” It’s that simple. This artist released one song and one song only. People that can name other songs by Day obviously have too much time to listen to music on their hands. Regardless this song is awesome, showcasing great vocals and perfect acoustic production.
