Top 15 Songs Of 2007 

Sorry everyone, I know this is late. I’ve been busy. Not to mention, this was an incredibly hard list to pick from. I had to do 15 again because there are so many good songs from 2007.

15. Gym Class Heroes - Cupid’s Chokehold

This song is pretty catchy and very unique. Also, it features my favorite singer, Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy. Maybe I’m a little biased to this song because of him…..

14. All American Rejects - It Ends Tonight

This is actually my favorite song by them. This and Move Along are probably their most meaningful songs. It would be much higher on my list if this were a different year

13. Boys Like Girls - The Great Escape

Boys Like Girls are in my top 10 bands of all time. There’s something about them that have such a cool sound to them. They are like a punk rock band but yet they have a pop sound to them so that they appeal to everyone.

12. Maroon 5 - Makes Me Wonder

This song is off my favorite album of all time, It Won’t Be Soon Before Long, I’d tell you why that album is my favorite of all time, but that’s for a different list a different day.

11. Justin Timberlake - Summer Love

This song is just so addicting to listen to. It’s fast paced and kind of has a little hip-hop in it. It’s a weekend kind of song, one that you can listen to in the car and drive with a smile on your face.

10. Linkin Park - What I’ve Done

This was the first Linkin Park song I had ever heard and I still sing it word for word every time I hear it. This was probably the most popular rock song and rock band around this time, and rightfully so. Chester Bennington’s voice is just so addicting to listen to.

9. OneRepublic - Apologize

OneRepublic is another band in my top 10 bands of all time, as you can probably tell from my blog. This is undeniably one of their most memorable hits. Still is such a great song, even today it would probably be a number one song.

8. Finger Eleven - Paralyzer

This song is one of the rock songs that I absolutely loved growing up. Every time I hear it on Pandora or the radio I crank it up loud. The lyrics for this song are so clever as well. It reminds me a lot of the Fray and Fall Out Boy the way they use the words. Maybe that’s why I love it so much.

7. Nickelback - Rockstar

This song is one of my dad’s favorites. I heard this in the car all the time too. It’s basically a song about what everyone dreams about: being a rockstar and having all the luxuries.

6. Fall Out Boy - Thnks Fr Th Mmrs

I really really really wish I could put this higher on the list. This is such an amazing song and it is the first ever Fall Out Boy song I heard that made me fall in love with the band. This is where it all started for me.

5. Plain White T’s - Hey There Delilah

This was probably the sweetest song of the year. It’s a favorite from a lot of people even today. I went to a camp when I was a kid and one of our counselors sang this song and the way he sang it made me fall in love with it.

4. Fall Out Boy - This Ain’t A Scene, It’s An Arms Race

This is one of my favorite Fall Out Boy songs and it’s one that I think is really underrated. It should be way more popular than it is. When I first heard this song I had no idea what the hell it was talking about.

3. Alicia Keys - No One

This is one of Alicia’s greatest songs. I absolutely love her soul and voice and her uniqueness. She is one of the greatest female vocalists ever and she definitely belongs third on this list.

2. Red Jumpsuit Apparatus - Face Down

This is one of the most emotional songs ever. Not a beautifully emotional kind of song. It’s more like “wow” kind of an emotional song. It’s hard to explain but it’s a song everyone needs to listen to.

1. My Chemical Romance - Welcome To The Black Parade

This is kind of a hard song to describe. It’s so different from any other song. It just leaves me speechless.

Top 15 Songs Of 2006

So, 2006 was just such an amazing year form music. This was probably the hardest list to make, and I’m not sure I made all the right choices but I had to 15 songs instead of 10 because of all the great songs. This is all based off off the hits of this year and all my own opinion.

15. All American Rejects - Dirty Little Secret

All American Rejects are probably the most pop, alternative band out there. This song has such a corny, yet catchy, chorus and it’s something you just find yourself shamefully singing along to.

14. Daniel Powter - Bad Day

This was probably the most memorable song of this year. It’s a song that you just have to include in this kind of list. Daniel Powter’s one hit wonder. He does have a really great voice though and I’m surprised more of his music hasn’t become popular.

13. Gnarls Barkley - Crazy

Definitely one of the most popular songs, ever! I was debating on whether or not to put this higher on the list. It’s a song I always sing along to, it’s a song that just is great to listen to. The only reason I didn’t put it higher is because I never really have an urge to listen to it.

12. Rascal Flatts - Life Is A Highway

Rascal Flatts is my guilty pleasure band. I absolutely can’t stand country. Although, I grew up listening to Rascal Flatts and I still love them. They have so much more meaning in their music than other country artists in my opinion. (Although this song isn’t exactly meaningful)

11. Panic! At The Disco - I Write Sins Not Tragedies

Panic! is like Fall Out Boy’s little brother band. They sound a lot alike and often times people ask me if it’s the same person. Although this is their most popular song, I do think they have much better songs than this. The one thing that makes this band for me is the lovable front man, Brendon Urie.

10. All American Rejects - Move Along

This song is so much different than Dirty Little Secret. I love this song so much more. It has a lot more meaning to the song and just makes me feel really happy when I listen to it. It’s an uplifting song.

9. The Fray - Over My Head (Cable Car)

The Fray. There’s so much I could say about this band. They are in my top 10 bands of all-time. I love them so much. Isaac Slade just has one of the most unique voices you’ll ever hear. He’s unmistakeable.

8. John Mayer - Waiting On The World To Change

Yup, more of the man! This song is the most memorable song for me by John Mayer. If I remember right, this was the first John Mayer song I ever heard. I still love it so much.

7. Blue October - Hate Me

Blue October is my stepmoms all time favorite band. From what she tells me, the lead singer is a psycho and is on meds. When he isn’t on meds he writes his best songs and performs his best. After seeing them, I think she’s probably right. They seem a little crazy, but they are really great!

6. James Blunt - You’re Beautiful

This song is just so perfect. It’s so relatable to me and probably so many other people. It’s about when you see someone so perfect and so beautiful but you know you could never be with them. It’s so sadly perfect.

5. Fall Out Boy - Dance, Dance

Yup my favorite band again. Like I said before, I could go on and on and on talking about how perfect they are to me. But I’m not. Maybe later. Instead I’ll tell you why I didn’t put them at number one: This song is actually not even in my top 20 favorite Fall Out Boy songs. Why? I don’t know. I love this song. I love all of their songs. For some reason, I just don’t think this song belongs in the top four.

4. Rascal Flatts - What Hurts The Most

This is one of the saddest songs ever. It’s a tear jerker for sure. This song was the most played Rascal Flatts song while I was growing up and I still never get tired of listening to it and singing along to it.

3. The Fray - How To Save A Life

This song is one of everyone’s favorites by The Fray. It’s about suicide and everyone knows someone who has taken their own life. Everyone wonders how they could’ve stopped that person and what they could’ve done. How they could’ve saved their life. That’s what this song is all about.

2. Snow Patrol - Chasing Cars

I don’t really know what it is about this song. Maybe it’s because no other song sounds like it. This song is just so mesmerizing and I can’t help but put it at number two on this list.

1. Red Hot Chili Peppers - Dani California

When I first heard this song, I thought it was from the 90’s. This song has just such a classic and old vibe. I love it. It’s topped the charts for alternative music and I don’t know what the hell the song is actually about, but I love singing along to it.

Top 10 Songs Of 2005

10. Kanye West (ft. Jamie Foxx) - Gold Digger

First off, I think Jamie Foxx’s voice is really good in this song. He has such a strong old soul. This song doesn’t really mean anything to me, I just put it on this list because it’s one of my favorite Kanye songs and I am just a big rap fan.

9. John Legend - Ordinary People

John Legend is so good at making music to set a mood. He plays a kind of jazz-soul music. It gives him kind of uniqueness nowadays because no one really does that kind of music anymore. I really appreciate him for keeping that alive.

8. Coldplay - Speed Of Sound

Another classic Coldplay song. They put their own style to it and it just flows nicely. Just like any other of their songs. There’s not much to say about it.

7. The Killers - Mr. Brightside

This is probably one of the greatest alternative songs of all time. I still have no idea what the song is about, as many times as I listen to it, but its still a song that I, and everyone else, love listening to. It’s one of the best done and well known alternative songs out there.

6. Lifehouse - You And Me

I like this song a lot more than I like Hanging By A Moment. It’s a song I can really remember as a kid and can still sing along to. Lifehouse’s sound is pretty interesting. It’s strong and full of rock, but yet its also smooth and beautiful at the same time. It’s a song you can rock out to, or fall asleep to.

5. Jesse McCartney - Beautiful Soul

Jesse McCartney has such a beautiful voice and could make any girl’s heart melt when he sang.

4. Green Day - Wake Me Up When September Ends

This song is about the death of Billie Joe Armstrong’s dad. He ran to his room and cried for hours and told his mom not to wake him up until september ends. It is one of the best rock-alternative songs ever and one of the most powerful when you can relate to it.

3. John Mayer - Daughters

This is my favorite all-time John Mayer song. It had been in my top 10 songs of all time at one point. I don’t know what it is about this song that is so different than his other songs. I just love it so much more and it is just so much more unique to me. It’s a song that I grew up listening to and still do today.

2. Green Day - Boulevard Of Broken Dreams

Definitely, this is my favorite Green Day song. It was hard not choosing this song as number 1 on this list. It’s the greatest Green Day song of all time and it’s so wonderfully done. I can’t really describe it in words. Go listen to it. You won’t regret it, I promise.

1. Fall Out Boy - Sugar, We’re Goin’ Down

You can’t look at my blog and not have seen this coming. Finally, my favorite band gets a hit in 2005. It’s also their most popular hit. I could go on for hours and hours talking about why I love Fall Out Boy and why I love this song, but I’m not going to bore you. All I want to say is that every song has a special little place in my heart. Each member has their own spot there too.

Top 10 Songs Of 2004 

Sorry Everyone! This post is late I know.

10. OutKast - Hey Ya!

This song is just super fun. It’s fun to listen to. It’s fun to sing along to with your friends. It’s fun to dance to. It’s a great song just to go wild and not care at all.

9. Usher (ft. Lil Jon & Ludacris) - Yeah

This is my classic clubbing song. Fist pumping, dancing, and grinding. If you throw a party, and you don’t play this song, it will not be a good party at all and possibly everyone will leave.

8. Maroon 5 - She Will Be Loved

Maroon 5 is my 3rd favorite band of all time. You will be seeing more of them for sure. Everyone mainly knows just Adam Levine. Although the rest of the band has a lot of character as well. It wasn’t called Adam Levine and those other 4 guys. No, it was called Maroon 5.

7. Avril Lavigne - My Happy Ending

This is probably my favorite song by the punk princess. It would be higher on my list, but this list was really difficult to pick from because there are so many good songs. This song is basically saying “Oh everyone gets happily ever after? Figures…” It makes it so relatable to people who feel like the world is against them.

6. Linkin Park - Numb

Linkin Park, everyone’s favorite rock band nowadays. This was their first big hit and still one of their most popular. The thing that makes Linkin Park so amazing is Chester Bennington’s smooth voice at one second, and then post-hardcore screams the next second. Also they incorporate hip-hop and rap vocals in with their rock.

5. Maroon 5 - This Love

I love the old Maroon 5 so much. I still love the new Maroon 5 as well though. But the old Maroon 5 seemed so much more hardcore and spiteful when they made their music. It was so original and perfectly catchy.

4. Jet - Are You Gonna Be My Girl

Jet reminds me of classic rock-pop music. They remind me a lot the Beatles and artists like that. They bring back great music. Not to mention this song is just so freaking catchy and awesome to sing along to!

3. Los Lonely Boys - Heaven

This song is just so smooth and spanish it gives off a great vibe to me. It manages to be powerful and yet keep that smooth rythym to it. It was perfectly done. It’s also a song that I always grew up listening to when my mom constantly played it in the car.

2. Evanescence - My Immortal

What a lot of people don’t know is that this is Amy Lee’s least favorite song by her own band. Yet, it’s the most popular. It doesn’t have Evanescence’s regular sound of vibe but yet it is still such a beautiful song and gets all up in your feels.

1. U2 - Vertigo

Uno. Dos. Tres. Catorce! Like I said in one of my previous lists, U2 is just a band that gives so much energy and I wish I could see them in concert. This is my favorite song by U2. It’s also a song my mom used to play a lot. As you can tell, my mom was a big influence in my musical taste (besides the rap and metal)

Top 10 Songs Of 2003

Hi everyone. This is going to be a little series I’m going to do. I’m going to post my top songs from each year from 2000 all the way to 2013. I’ll be posting one list a day. Although, this will be a list made from only the hits of that year. Remember this is all my own opinion and if you don’t agree with me, well I’m sorry.

10. Justin Timberlake - Rock Your Body

Finally we get just Justin! His music is just as good as N’Sync in my opinion. He adds more Hip-Hop/R&B to his music and it adds a bit of smoothness and sexiness.

9. Avril Lavigne - I’m With You

This Avril Lavigne song is very emotional. It kinda makes you want to just burst into tears and throw up a lighter and wave it in the air. Not to mention Avril’s vocals on this song are just on point and perfect.

8. Coldplay - Clocks

I love Coldplay. Chris Martin has an amazingly smooth and calming voice. When you’re down and having a bad day, the best medicine: Coldplay. It could be the most hateful song in the world and it could put you in a mood just because of their song.

7. Justin Timberlake - Cry Me A River

This is probably Justin’s most classic and memorable song. You just have to love this song. It’s got a unique sound and is well sung. Hard not to love it.

6. 3 Doors Down - When I’m Gone

I really really really wanted to put this song higher on this list. It’s such a fantastic song. But I think there is just too much competition this year. Especially rock competition.

5. Trapt - Headstrong

This is actually my bestfriend’s favorite song. This song is one of the first hard rock songs I really loved and led me to a lot of metal music I listen to now. It’s the perfect warm-up song before a game. It’s the perfect song to workout to. It’s a great hardcore song and it pumps energy through your veins.

4. Evanescence - Bring Me To Life

Probably Evanescence’s most popular song. It’s pretty fantastic. The back up vocals by Paul McCoy make the song for me. They are just the perfect contrast to Amy Lee’s voice in my opinion.

3. Train - Calling All Angels

My all-time favorite Train song. Pat definitely shows off his vocal ability in this song. The lyrics in this song are just so deep and emotional. It’s one of my favorite songs for sure.

2. John Mayer - Your Body Is A Wonderland

John Mayer is killing it. Like always. You just can’t hate John Mayer’s vibe. It’s so smooth and there is no other word to describe it but smooth. It makes you feel good about yourself. After a long hard day at work or school just go in your room, turn the lights off, and turn on some John Mayer. Sing along if you want!

1. Kid Rock (ft. Sheryl Crow) - Picture

This song I grew up listening to. My dad always played this song. Everytime I listen to it, it brings back memories. Sure this song isn’t the best vocally or musically compared to these other songs on the list, but it means something to me. That’s why I put it at number 1.

Top 10 Songs Of 2002

Hi everyone. This is going to be a little series I’m going to do. I’m going to post my top songs from each year from 2000 all the way to 2013. I’ll be posting one list a day. Although, this will be a list made from only the hits of that year. Remember this is all my own opinion and if you don’t agree with me, well I’m sorry.

10. Vanessa Carlton - A Thousand Miles

This is kind of like, I’m Like A Bird, in my last list. It’s a song that everyone recognizes. If you played it, everyone knows the words and would sing along. It’s hard not to put that kind of song in your top 10.

9. N’Sync - Girlfriend

More N’Sync. But this is their last year sadly. I like this song a lot. Although, out of all of their hits, this one is my least favorite. I still love this song because it’s about the boys singing to a girl who has a boyfriend that treats her like crap. Basically they are saying how they could treat the girl better.

8. Five For Fighting - Superman

This song is great in so many ways. It’s pretty. It sounds so smooth. It has wonderful meaning, and the lyrics and outstanding. The only reason it is this low on the top 10 is because I have never felt the urge to just listen to it. Don’t get me wrong, when I do listen to it it’s amazing. But I never really just get on youtube to look up the song (unless I’m making a best of 2002 list)

7. Avril Lavigne - Complicated

Introduce the punk princess! The old Avril Lavigne was one of my favorites growing up and still is. This song is just so bitter and relatable that it’s perfect. If you’re trying to get some one to become a fan of Avril, this is the song to show them.

6. Nickelback - How You Remind Me

Can I just take a moment, to talk about Chad Kroeger’s voice. His voice is so unique. It’s strong and unmistakable. If you like Nickelback even a little bit, then you could spot his voice on any song. It’s so unique and wonderful and no one can sing like him.

5. Puddle Of Mudd - Blurry

This song I actually only heard a couple of days ago and I fell for it. It’s hard to say something about this song because I didn’t really know it. What I can say about it though is that it is one of the most relatable songs I’ve heard in such a long time. That’s why I put it at number 5 on my list.

4. Eminem - Lose Yourself

Many people claim Eminem as the greatest rapper of all time. I disagree. I do think this song is the work of one of the best rappers ever… But the greatest? Don’t get me wrong, this song IS number 4 on this list. It’s one of the best rap songs of all time and I love it!

3. N’Sync - Gone

This song is actually probably my favorite of all of their hits. I love just everything about it. Not to mention it is all Justin Timberlake (except for the backing vocals by the other 4) I don’t really know what to say about this song because it’s just that good.

2. Jimmy Eat World - The Middle

This song is the one I always think of when I think of classic alternative music. It always pops up on Pandora when I listen to it. It’s a favorite song of one of my best friends and it’s a favorite of mine. This song was just well done and amazing.

1. John Mayer - No Such Thing

John Mayer. The man is one of my favorites. I listened to him all the time growing up. My mom loved him and so do I. Play me any John Mayer hit and I’ll sing along to it. But this song has just a great meaning to it. It’s basically telling a story of how nothing was perfect in his life but he still managed to look on the bright side. It’s a feel good song that I love listening to and that is why it is the top song on this list.

Top 10 Songs Of 2001

Hi everyone. This is going to be a little series I’m going to do. I’m going to post my top songs from each year from 2000 all the way to 2013. I’ll be posting one list a day. Although, this will be a list made from only the hits of that year. Remember this is all my own opinion and if you don’t agree with me, well I’m sorry.

10. N’Sync - This I Promise You

This is one of their few slow songs. It’s such a pretty song to listen to. This is the kind of music they would play at a school dance. It is one of my favorite slow songs by them, other than “God Must Have Spent A Little More Time On You.” I really love JC’s part in this song.

9. OutKast - Ms. Jackson

One thing you might not know about me is that I am a really big rap fan. My blog doesn’t show it and I’ve always been more of a rocker at heart. Although, this song isn’t too rap influenced. One reason I love OutKast is because of the man Andre 3000. Andre has such a unique and distinct voice and matches his cool voice with his swag.

8. Nelly Furtado - I’m Like A Bird

This song, I’m not going to go into too much detail. It’s a song that everyone knows. It’s a great song, and beautifully done by Nelly Furtado.

7. Lifehouse - Hanging By A Moment

This is arguably the most popular song of the year. Although, it’s only number 7 on my list. I love this song because it is a rock song but still smooth with Lifehouse’s lead vocals. The song rises as it goes on and it definitely adds a major effect.

6. Incubus - Drive

Incubus gives off a creepy vibe. Or maybe it’s just me…. It’s probably just me. But their sound and their look really adds a lot of character to the band. I love the lyrics to this song because they have so much meaning and are so much deeper than a lot of people recognize.

5. U2 - Beautiful Day

If I could see a live concert of any of the people on the list. I’d pick U2. They always put out so much energy and emotion in their performances and definitely haven’t slacked off since then. This song is just indescribable because you can’t compare U2 to any other band.

4. Train - Drops Of Jupiter

Another Train song, and this one is their best of all. Such meaningful lyrics, such good flow and rise throughout the song, and Pat Monahan’s beautiful voice to back it up.

3. 3 Doors Down - Kryptonite

This song just gives off a great vibe and makes me want to head bang a little bit and play the air guitar. It’s such a catchy song and the lyrics flow so nicely that it’s so hard not to love.

2. Staind - It’s Been Awhile

It took me the longest time to decide between this song and Kryptonite. They are both such amazing rock songs from this year. I chose Staind over 3 Doors Down because this song is just so much more raw and bitter. It adds such a strong emotion.

1. Alicia Keys - Fallin’

Although I spent a lot of time choosing between Staind and 3 Doors Down, there was a clear number one. This song is just pure R&B/Soul and it is absolutely beautiful. Alicia Keys voice is so strained and unique that it’s unlike any other person. The rise and fall of the chorus is just so perfect and well done. It adds so much emotion and it’s a song that most people can relate to.

Top 10 songs of 2000

Hi everyone. This is going to be a little series I’m going to do. I’m going to post my top songs from each year from 2000 all the way to 2013. I’ll be posting one list a day. Although, this will be a list made from only the hits of that year. Remember this is all my own opinion and if you don’t agree with me, well I’m sorry.

10. Blink 182 - All The Small Things

Blink 182 is one of those bands that, considering my music taste, I should love. But I never really got into Blink 182. I’m not a fan of theirs. Although, I do really like this song. It has a sort of suburban sound and it’s like something you’d hear in a soundtrack to a movie.

9. Goo Goo Dolls - Broadway

The Goo Goo Dolls are most famous for their hit, “Iris.” But this is one of their less popular songs that is really fantastic. It was still a hit. This song is really cool and just makes you wanna rock. The music video for this song is so original and is one of my favorites.

8. Backstreet Boys - Show Me The Meaning Of Being Lonely

The Backstreet Boys. I’m not really a fan of boy bands, but this song is really fantastic. It’s a sad song that is really very beautiful and smooth. Whenever someone mentions the Boys, this is usually the song that comes to mind.

7. N’Sync - Bye Bye Bye

I know, I know. Ugh, another boy band. But I actually really love N’Sync; mainly because of Justin Timberlake. This song though is one that you want to get up and dance and sing along to. It’s probably their most memorable song from everybody.

6. Santana - Maria Maria

In my opinion, Santana is one of the greatest guitarists of all-time. The way his quick fingers strum some of the chords in this song is just fantastic. Also he switches between guitars in this song. He uses his acoustic guitar to give the song a latin feel. Then, he switches to his electric guitar and becomes the rock star that Santana is. The vocals for this song are very smooth and kind of whiny in a way. They remind me of Ne-yo in a way. Without the vocals this song would not have been as great as it actually is.

5. Nine Days - Absolutely

This song is what really introduced me into alternative music. It’s so original and if you sang the first line of the song, everyone would know what it is. It’s one of the most memorable songs to me.

4. N’Sync - It’s Gonna Be Me

Yup. More N’Sync. You should learn to love them because you will see a lot more of them in this series. The music video to this is a sequel to Bye Bye Bye. It’s a very comical and cute video and a must-watch. Also, this song really highlights the kind of twang in Justin’s voice and it’s really quite fantastic.

3. Train - Meet Virginia

I first heard this song at a Train and Maroon 5 concert. This song was so emotional and powerful that I immediately loved it and had to download it off iTunes. Pat Monahan’s voice is so unique and gives this song sort of a country feel. It’s one of their most powerful songs and one of the best of the year.

2. Brian McKnight - Back At One

This song… is just so freaking gorgeous. It’s one of the sweetest and most beautiful songs ever in my opinion. Brian McKnight made the best love-song of the year with this. It makes girls’ hearts melt whenever they hear it. It kind of makes my heart all gooey too. If you’ve never heard this song before then you have something wrong with you. Go listen to it right now!

1. Santana (ft. Rob Thomas) - Smooth

This song is the song of the year for me. Everyone should know this song. It has an unforgettable sound. The guitar in this song is absolute perfection and some of Santana’s best work. Also, Rob Thomas’ amazing rock vocals make this song. This is my favorite song by both Rob Thomas and Santana. It was hard to choose between this song and Brian McKnight’s because they were both so different. Although I chose this song because it gives me a much better vibe than “Back At One” probably because I am a man.
