Top 200 Songs of the Millennium (so far)

musicCQ reminded me yesterday morning that they're airing the Top 200 songs of the millennium on 102.1 this long weekend. She (or is CQ a he?) He decided to throw down her (or his?) his top 200 songs released from 2000 to the present day.

Not to be outdone, here are my favourite 200 songs from this millennium. I didn't have enough time to put them in order, so they're alphabetized.

It's sometimes tough to tell with the handles. Classic Quarters could a be dude or dudette.

I thought Sammi was a dude for a while.

Not a bad list....mine would include some more U2, The Cure, Depeche Mode and Joe STrummer.

No country?

I should point out it's a pretty subjective list. And no country. :-)

Electro Stan

Wow, sure glad Arcade Fire made in on this list. love them!

I like CQ's list. It introduced me to some indy bands that I had not heard before. Thank you for that. It was more consistent with my taste, but a little too obscure in some instances. Toronto Mike's taste sometimes has tracks that are too far on the alternative side (read: too much screaming) for me.

This list is totally incomplete without Led Zeppelins and Iron Maiden !
