    #91 U2 – Beautiful Day

    Year of release: 2000
    Genre: Alternative Rock, Pop/Rock
    #1 in the UK, Spain, Italy, Australia, Canada, Netherlands (Singles Top 100)


    Okay, we can hate Bono all day long for being an egomaniac, but U2 have found a way to write pretty anthemic songs. We all need an uplifting radio-friendly rock once in a while.

          If you talk about Mariah, she wasn't too far off the top 100 with "Touch My Body". For me personally, Mariah's best 2000s single was "I Know What You Want", but unfortunately it failed to reach #1 in any significant national chart.

            European chart isn’t significant enough?

              The GOAT didn't qualify as James Blunt kept Mariah off #1 in the UK with You're beautiful which ultimately didn't come close to my top 100 countdown. Mariah would've definitely made my list though...but it wasn't to be.

              I really need start working on that JakeP top 100 UK #2s of the 00s.

                #90 Die Ärzte - Unrockbar

                Year of release: 2003
                Genre: Punk Rock, Pop/Punk
                #1 in Germany



                One of the biggest German bands is singing basically about what's rock and what's not in their #1 hit.

                  #89 Kelis - Milkshake

                  Year of release: 2003
                  Genre: R&B, Pop, Dance
                  #1 in Ireland


                  I had to honour Kelis in some way, but that elusive #1 single status somehow managed to almost escape her so I could only settle with the somehow ironic (lyrically) "Milkshake" (back when Pharrell produced good music). Part of the "Mean Girls" soundtrack as well.
                  In 2004, "Milkshake" was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Urban/Alternative Performance.

                    #88 Madonna - Love Profusion

                    Year of release: 2003
                    Genre: Electronic, Pop, Folk
                    #1 in Spain


                    One of the least trend-chasing and poppy singles of Madonna during the whole decade. The structure of the song is also not as predictable. Not a big fan of those CGI effects in the music video.

                      "Love Profusion" is my favourite Madonna song from last 22 years.
                      My celebrity crushes : Monika Sedziuviene, Kristina Ivanova (YVA).
                      In my head I like to imagine LastDreamer in the land of Lithuania right now with a suitcase of simcards, a box of chocolates and a wedding ring. It would be a great base for an epic Eurovision fan fiction.

                          #87 Nelly Furtado – All Good Things (Come To An End)

                          Year of release: 2005
                          Genre: Pop, Folk
                          #1 in Spain, Switzerland, Denmark, Netherlands, Austria, Belgium (Flanders)


                          Surprisingly (for that Timbaland-production era of Nelly) breezy & folksy tune. Some might say, it's forgettable, but I quite like it.

                            #86 Stromae - Alors On Danse

                            Year of release: 2009
                            #1 in Germany, France, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Denmark, Belgium (Flanders), Belgium (Wallonia)
                            Genre: Eurodance, hip-hop


                            This is far from being the best Stromae single, yet it was his breakout moment. This song describes the escapism that one finds in a form of partying & dance.

                              #1 in United Kingdom
                              Genre: Alternative Rock, Emo


                              We've reached peak emo here. Well, at least My Chemical Romance put a Queen-ish make-up on their lead single back in 2006. Still, the very distinguished status of #1 single in the UK official chart felt a bit too much.
                              The music video looks lavish and expensive though.
                              Ranking this lower than Ding Dong?
                              I'd say by imitating Queen it was fitting that it went straight in to the top just like their similarly over-the-top Innuendo.

                              Milkshake is brilliant.

                              There's not much metal or power in that Sabaton track. It's like Runrig! (popular Scottish folk-rock band)

                                I am surprised by the relatively low profile of "Everything You Want" considering it was #1 in the US after all.
                                The follow-up 'You're a God' is also great!

                                  'All Good Things' is nice, her best song together with 'Say It Right'.

                                  I liked 'Alors on danse' in the beginning but it quickly become annoying due to overplay. I definitely prefer 'Papaoutai'.

                                    "Ding Dong" is like one of the best/most memorable meme-songs of 2000s.

                                      'Alors on danse' is actually one of my least favourite Stromae singles.

                                        #85 Evermore – Light Surrounding You

                                        Year of release: 2005
                                        #1 in Australia
                                        Genre: Pop/rock



                                        NZ band managed to get to #1 with this Snow Patrol-ish/The Fray-ish (some might even compare this to particular Crowded House songs) insprational pop/rock song in Australia. The music video is notable for featuring Australian actress Emily Browning (The Uninvited, Sucker Punch, American Gods TV series).

                                          #84 Povia - Il bambini fanno ooh!

                                          Year of release: 2005
                                          Genre: Pop/Rock
                                          #1 in Italy


                                          San Remo strikes again! This time for an impressive 18-week run at number one in Italy. The song tells us about the feelings of a child coming across anything for the first time in this world (a child says "oh!"). The selling point of this song is a traditional radio-friendly rock nature with some impressive vocal (for this genre, at least).
                                          Povia is a man of very controversial statements (some are pretty right-wing), but this is a completely different issue...

                                            oh Love Profusion, the times when Madonna was herself and didn't try so hard to please the publicity.

                                            Oh Nelly's track is a pure pop gem, love it!

                                            Kelis is fantastic as well

                                              Back when Madonna had enough leverage for artistic freedom.

                                                #84 Panjabi MC - Mundian To Bach Ke

                                                Year of release: 1998 (original), 2002 (re-release)
                                                #1 in Italy, Belgium (Wallonia) in 2003
                                                Genre: Bhangra, electronica, alternative hip hop


                                                I don't like the Jay-Z remix, I much prefer the original version that got popular in Germany, Italy and all-over Europe on the basis of internet downloads.
                                                Now this song became more of a stereotype or a commodity, but anyway back in the day it was quite a different affair in comparison to what the charts were offering elsewhere.
                                                "Mundian To Bach Ke" is used frequently in western media when Indian characters are introduced or are on screen. It was used on an episode of ER, when Gallant and Neela danced to a version of the song, which Gallant called a "Sikh rap".

                                                  #83 Lady Gaga feat. Colby O’Donis – Just Dance

                                                  Year of release: 2008
                                                  Genre: Dance-pop
                                                  #1 in USA, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada


                                                  Maybe I just hate pretentious pop-stars (cause only rockstars are allowed to play the self-indulgent and pretentious card in my playbook), but this was Gaga not trying to reach for the global stardom by the means of production. Just a simple trashy dance-pop song, that is very in the late 2000s style.

                                                    #82 Our Lady Peace - Somewhere Out There

                                                    Year of release: 2002
                                                    Genre: Alternative Rock, Post-Grunge, Pop/Rock
                                                    #1 in Canada


                                                    During the late 1990s-early 2000s almost every country you can think of had at least one locally popular alternative rock band. In Canada that band was Our Lady Peace, and if the success outside Canada was limited, the band still managed to score two #1 hits at home.
                                                    "Somewhere Out There" is what you would expect from a rock song that reached the #1 spot anywhere: anthemic, radio-friendly and easy to sell.

                                                      Year of release: 2000
                                                      Genre: French house, Nu-Disco
                                                      #1 in the United Kingdom, Spain, Switzerland, Ireland


                                                      Nostalgia factor is huge in getting this one in my top 100, but surprisingly this song is still played frequently on the radio and in shopping malls. Back when it had been released, I considered it to be too inoffensive and slightly bland, but I got used to it.

                                                        I liked Panjabi MC back then, Lady Gaga's classic is good as well. Modjo's track is kinda boring today, loved it back then

                                                          Modjo's track is waaaaay too repetitive, the whole song is built on that little sample.

                                                            #80 Atlas - Crawl

                                                            Year of release: 2007
                                                            Genre: Alternative Rock
                                                            #1 in New Zealand


                                                            I seriously doubt that anyone here on UKMix is familiar with this song, while it's the biggest rock hit of 2000s in NZ and managed to spend 7 weeks at #1 there. The band only managed to release one album, because the success of "Crawl" wasn't matched by any of the follow-up singles.

                                                              I've thought thought the whole American life album in general had a very dated sound. It even sounded dated when it was brand new. (still like the title track though). Love profusion is quite lush but again it's the production on the track that makes it a bit jarring in places.

                                                              Loose was sensational - that whole Nelly Furtado era was perfection and i adored All good things (come to an end) so its great to see this making your top 100.

                                                              Just dance is a bonafide 00s bop although i still personally think Lady Gaga went on to release stronger songs.

                                                              I really struggled with that whole french house invasion from the late 90s/early 00s. Apart from the odd exception like One more time and Starlight i really didn't have much interest in these tracks. I think Music sounds better with you kickstarted the trend and, despite being a huge smash, i always found the song really boring. Same with Groovejet to a lesser extent. Then again i was a pure unashamed teenybopper who loved S Club 7 back then.
