My Favorite Songs Since 2000

To close this 4 part series of my favorite songs from my lifetime (the 1970's until now) I will list my Top 10 songs released since 2000. This period of time began with a musical bent as I was at Youthlink 2000 listening to MercyMe ring in the New Year amid the Y2K scare with thousands of others at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis. From then until now much has changed in the musical landscape. Below is a quick glimpse of my Top 10 Songs From 2000 Until Now.

10. The Middle by Jimmy Eat World

9. Beautiful Day by U2

8. Use Somebody by Kings Of Leon

7. Fix You by Coldplay

6. Bring Me To Life by Evanescence

5. You & Me by Dave Matthews Band

4. Empire State Of Mind by Jay-Z & Alicia Keys

3. Right Where I Need To Be by Gary Allen

2. Meant To Live by Switchfoot

1. Apologize by Timbaland featuring OneRepublic

This was the most difficult list to compile as there simply is not enough history to judge this time period effectively. What is hot now may not be good enough to stand the test of time like songs from the previous decades. Maybe in 10 years I'll revisit this post and see what the fate of these songs has become.
