125. INXS - Devil's Party
Second highest from the legendary Australian band; how high will their biggest of the year, "Afterglow", rank?
124. Amy Winehouse - Rehab
They tried to make her go to rehab, she said no, no, no, I'm at #124 for the year! As this is still charting, it may make another appearance in 2007.
123. Daniel Powter - Lie To Me
Probably the least successful of his singles, it's also his first of 4 in this entire chart...
122. Daniel Powter - Love You Lately
...and here's the next! Still 2 more to come, both in the top 100. But will either of them beat "Bad Day"'s #14 position from last year?
121. Fall Out Boy - A Little Less Sixteen Candles, A Little More Touch Me
Second highest for these guys... "Dance, Dance" is still a little higher.
120. Stabilo - Flawed Design
Another Canadian band who achieved their biggest success this year... unfortunately, the follow-up was a flop. Maybe in 2007, their fortunes will reverse?
119. Oasis - Acquiesce
The oldest song on here, this was originally a B-side in 1995, but released this year as part of an EP, as well as being included on their greatest hits collection.
118. James Blunt - High
Second of 4 appearances from Mr. Blunt... the 2 that occupied positions in the top 5 simultaneously are higher up.
117. Sheryl Crow & Sting - Always On Your Side
Finally releasing a second single from "Wildflower", Sheryl re-recorded this one with Sting... and ranks as the highest from both artists this year.
116. Aerosmith - Devil's Got A New Disguise
A new track on their latest greatest hits collection, this has the classic Aerosmith sound all around. Steven Tyler still has his collaboration with Santana, "Just Feel Better", higher up.
115. Nerina Pallot - Everybody's Gone To War
I hadn't heard of her before this song, but it impressed me enough to go top 40 on my chart, and rank #115 for the year.
114. Aly & A.J. - Rush
Another Disney act who became successful in 2006; this was the first song of theirs I liked, and lasted a long time despite not reaching my top 30.
113. Bon Jovi - Who Says You Can't Go Home
Who says they couldn't do country? I preferred the original album version, but overall, I felt this wasn't up to their usual standards. Still one more Bon Jovi song higher up.
112. Joanna - Let It Slide
One of 2006's newcomers, this was a nice breakthrough, even though it failed to do that much anywhere.
111. Red Hot Chili Peppers - Tell Me Baby
The second single from their "Stadium Arcadium" album; the first, "Dani California", ranks much higher.
110. Gin Blossoms - Learning The Hard Way
A pleasant comeback from the 90's band; this was right in the line of their 90's hits, but here comes just short of the top 100.
109. KT Tunstall - Other Side Of The World
The first of three songs from KT to appear here, this is her most recent to make my chart, and is still currently charting. How high will her other two be?
108. Our Lady Peace - Angels Losing Sleep
This was taken from their most recent studio album, and was charting at the beginning of 2006; unfortunately, nothing they've released since has charted.
107. Bo Bice - The Real Thing
Now the runner-up from the 2005 American Idol season... he was still, however, beaten by the winner once again
106. Celine Dion & Il Divo - I Believe In You
Sung half in English and half in French, this was the first song with Il Divo on it that I liked. Still 1 more Celine song to come.
105. Scissor Sisters - I Don't Feel Like Dancin'
The retro-70's feel helped give the Scissor Sisters their biggest hit to date, and also their highest-charting on my chart.
104. Carrie Underwood - Before He Cheats
So while Carrie beat out Bo, it was only by 3 spots! However, working in Carrie's advantage is the fact that she's still charting, and may appear again in 2007.
103. Dixie Chicks - Not Ready To Make Nice
How does the once-most-popular group in country music react to controversy after dissing President Bush? They wrote a song about it and released it as the first single! This is their only appearance on my list, but further singles from "The Long Way Around" may make 2007's list.
102. Pink - Stupid Girls
Another controversial song here, dissing the whole "stupid girl" concept and parodying such artists in her video; this wasn't the right leadoff choice, and fizzled in the top 20 on my chart. However, the next 2 singles both reached #1, and can be found higher up.
101. Nelly Furtado - Say It Right
The third single from the "Loose" album; this one is currently charting in my top 5. Despite just missing the top 100 for 2006, it has an excellent chance to become a huge hit into 2007.
