The Decade's Best Songs
Rolling Stone magazine has released its definitive Top 100 songs of the decade.
Coldplay, Radiohead and Beyonce all feature in it more than once while the Number One spot was nabbed by a veritable one-hit wonder.
Here's the Top Ten...
10, 'Stan': Eminem
RS said: This creepy hit encapsulated the dramatic flair that made Eminem so impossible to ignore in 2000.
9, 'Beautiful Day': U2
RS said: The song that re-established U2 as the world's biggest band looked backward, reviving the skyscraping sound of their Eighties classics.
8, 'Rehab': Amy Winehouse
RS said: Sonically letter-perfect retro soul with producer Mark Ronson's 21st-century beat-muscle and cheekiness.
7, 'Maps': Yeah Yeah Yeahs
RS said: i>Karen O testifies to the power of love as if she's miraculously channeling Siouxsie and Sam Cooke at the same time.
6, 'Seven Nation Army': The White Stripes
RS said: The greatest riff of the decade.
5, 'Paper Planes': M.I.A.
RS said: One of the unlikeliest Top 10 jams ever.
4, 'Hey Ya': Outkast
RS said: Sounds as weird and fantastic as it did the first time.
3, 'Crazy In Love': Beyonce
RS said: The horns weren't a hook. They were a herald: Pop's new queen had arrived.
2, '99 Problems': Jay-Z
RS said: [Jay's] incredible decade-long run reached its hard-rock crescendo in this Black Album smash, flipping an old Ice-T hook with go-go percussion and metal guitars.
1,'Crazy': Gnarls Barkley
RS said: Gnarls Barkley packed a career's worth of genius ideas into three minutes — and then they basically disappeared. Does that make them crazy?
And there we have. Whaddya reckon MTV-ers, would this lot make your Top 10 songs of the past ten years?
