Harris’ Top 110 Songs of the Decade (29-25)

Songs 29-25

29. This Love, Maroon 5 (2004): Maroon 5 spent the decade putting out two multi-platinum albums and a slew of successful compilation, live and acoustic records. This song was from their first record “Songs About Jane” which put the band on the map after a long trip up the record label ladder.
28. Crazy, Gnarls Barkley (2006): This is a band that never made an album I liked but never released a single that I didn’t like. “Crazy” is without a doubt my favorite from Gnarls Barkley and the unique style of this song makes it great. Trying to fit this song into a genre is so difficult. Is it pop? Is it r&b? Is it hip-hop? Is it rock? Who knows, I do know it’s a great song.
27. I Believe In A Thing Called Love, The Darkness (2003): As far as one it wonders go this song might take the cake for the last decade. This song introduced us to british rockers The Darkness and as large as this track got, that’s how long their fall from heaven was. The video from the song was especially memorable as they performed on a spaceship that was being attacked by a large octopus looking alien. It says something when a glam-rock song can make the charts in 2004.
26. Drops Of Jupiter, Train (2001): It’s probably a shame that this song fell this far in the countdown. Train gave us some of the best songs of this era and once again this was the first single we heard from them. The amazing vocal performance in the beginning by lead singer Pat Monahan matched with the piano playing makes this a perfect blend.

25. Boston, Augustana (2005): I remember hearing this song in 2006 when it first came out but it never caught on for me. Years later I downloaded it and it became an instant favorite of mine. Most people will assume they don’t know the song by the name but upon listening realize they’ve heard it. Without this song we would not of known the name Augustana.
