My Favorite Naughties Songs

With the Naughties winding down, everyone’s making their lists of films and albums and songs. I’m joining the fun.

I wouldn’t call this a list of the ‘best’ songs from the decade. Rather these are the 25 songs that I spent the most time with, that changed my mind about a genre, that made me fall in love with a band, that stuck in my head and just wouldn’t let go.
