  • [Survivor] The Ultimate 2000s Survivor - Round 68



    Welcome to the Ultimate 2000s Survivor!

    This epic survivor follows on from the Ultimate 1990s Survivor which was hosted by me in 2018/2019 and won by You Oughta Know by Alanis Morissette, beating Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit.

    Also in the top 10 for that decade were Whitney Houston, Roxette, Annie Lennox, Kylie Minogue, No Doubt, Oasis, Mariah Carey and George Michael... will any of them feature in the 2000s top 10?

    I will be running this in the same way as that survivor, so what will we include?
    • Every UK top 10 hit from the beginning of 2000 to the end of 2009.
    • Any songs that were hits in the 00s that had been an equal or bigger hit in a previous year wont be included.
    • A song that precedes the decade but wasn't a hit previously, or was a smaller hit, (e.g. Amarillo, It Feels So Good) will be included.
    • Covers and significant remixes (e.g. Thunder In My Heart Again) are also included.
    • A selection of songs from outside of the top 10 will be chosen by you.
    The final list of songs is still being compiled; the initial rounds will be split into groups. The songs with the most votes will go through automatically to the next stage, those that don’t make it through may have another chance to do so as a wildcard later on. Then, we will have a final list to work through after the initial group stages.

    Your first job is to nominate up to 10 songs of your choice that charted between the number 11 and 75 in the 00s. Once a song has been nominated you don’t need to choose it again as it will automatically be included. You can check chart positions here: https://polyhex.me.uk/uksingles/chartruns-uksingles.cfm

    This game will hopefully begin on Sunday/Monday, so you have just under a week!
