The 50 Best Singles of the Decade (2000s)

January 10, 2010

This is the last “Best of” list I will post for awhile, I promise! Finally getting around to throwing on the last “decade list.” As a reminder, when I move to singles I exclude any tracks from albums that make the best of album list on the site so as to broaden the focus of the music being looked at. Most of these songs were in fact “singles” in the traditional sense, but a few were album cuts off of albums I didn’t get to showcase on the other lists. Thanks for reading.
