Music meme?

I feel like doing a Decade In Music sort of write-up, but that seems a huge and daunting task. So instead, how about this?

Suggest a year of the 00s in comments, and I'll tell you the ten songs that defined that year for me, and why they were important. I'll include links where I can - to youtube videos or similar - so you can hear them yourselves, or at least to the lyrics if there are any. I'll try to resist choosing the coolest ones and stick to the ones that really meant something at the time (though I can't promise not to do that at all).

And I'd really like to see this turn into a meme, so if you comment saying you'd like to join in, I'll give you a year too. It doesn't have to be ten songs - that just seems right because it's an amount that will probably fit nicely on a CD, and then I can badger people to make them for me ;)

Oops, sorry I forgot to reply to this! I'll say 2002 and hope you have comment notifications on...

I might have to do this one too! 2005 was a pretty dramatic year both for music and life.

Ooooh, that's a tough one. But, thinking about it, the song of the year has to be "Come Take A Trip In My Airship" by Ren Shields, which will always remind me of one glorious spring day that seemed so full of possibilities.

And *blush* I couldn't possibly tell you about the things I associate with James Kendis's "Won't You Fondle Me?"

And of course, Madame Butterfly. I liked it before it was famous.

;-) you rose nicely to the challenge. Feel free to see what you can do with 1704 too, if you like...

I don't even remember what year it was we met, any more! Seems kind of sad.

It'd be very interesting to see a post about your songs of 2001...
