    Veronicas were pretty close with "Lolita". I also liked "In My Blood" for being damn catchy and the very recent "Think Of Me",yet clearly they're now a very local Aussie act chart-wise.

    #26 A-ha - Celice

    Year of release: 2005
    Genre: Pop/Rock, Synthpop
    #1 in Norway

    A-ha resurgence came with a more aggressive, rockier sound. "Celice" also has a very different music video (for A-ha at least), which was filmed in a brothel and deals with the issues of sex workers.
    Magne made a comment: "The video is about people who have lost their direction in the hunt for meaning - and loneliness as a result of lost innocence."

    No, i just meant Ting Tings. Veronicas obviously exceeded that song.

    The Veronicas had many good (bordering on great) songs, and one amazing album track that was #26 on my Decade chart for the 00's (based on plays in 2000-2009). "Hook Me Up" is terrible though!

    I like "Hook Me Up" because it's quite fast-paced, the pulsating electro tempo is the key here.

    #25 Mylène Farmer - Dégénération

    Year of release: 2008
    Genre: Electronic, House
    #1 in France, Belgium (Wallonia)
    Extended version:


    This was meant to start a new era for Mylène and she did kick it off in style via a little bit NSFW music video. Yet she managd to keep the sexy thing stylish.

    #24 Goodshirt - Sophie

    Year of release: 2001
    Genre: Indie Rock
    #1 in New Zealand


    I will be very surprised if anyone here on UKMix knows this song. NZ band made a very clever use of their NZ on Air funding and managed to get a number one single on the back of a sweet music video.
    Somehow it was quite hard for a NZ act to get to #1 even at home so this rare occasion deserves to be celebrated at least here.
    I also enjoy some of their other singles, like "Blowing Dirt" and "Fiji Baby"

    #23 Amy Winehouse - Rehab

    Year of release: 2006
    Genre: Soul, Rhythm & Blues
    #1 in Norway in 2007


    Initially it wasn't my favourite Amy's single, but slowly it kept climbing up the ranks and then later when the self-fulfilling prophecy sadly turned out to be true...
    Amy deserved many more #1s and not just in Norway.

    It's a shame "Analogue" wasn't a #1 hit, it would have been in my top 10 in this chart for sure.

    Wow i had no idea Rehab was #1 anywhere. I just remember when this absolute gem cracked the american top 10 and it seemed like a big deal in the UK from what i can remember.

    Norway definitely got that one correct. I always thought this song peaked higher than #7 in the UK though, seems like such an unjust chart peak.

    Without doubt one of my favourite songs from the whole of the 00s, and quite possibly my favourite single from 2006. <3

    Somehow Amy singles were more of sleeper hits then instant smashes.

    #22 Kylie Minogue - Slow

    Year of release: 2003
    Genre: Pop, Synthpop
    #1 in the UK, Australia, Spain, Denmark


    One of the more exquisite Kylie singles. The electronic beat cuts through this song like a knife.
    The music video is also getting the legendary status as years gone by.

    "Rehab" is awful song from my all-time # 1 least favourite singer.
    My celebrity crushes : Monika Sedziuviene, Kristina Ivanova (YVA).

    Dreamer, you must to visit Lithuania and see/listen a live concert of your YVA strawberries.

    I like female singers with a deeper, contralto voice (especially when they do play around the gender-stereotypical impression of what female vocal should sound like).

    Best not to encourage him. Exaggeration is his thing. I'd have a bit more respect for a dead person and not be quite so forceful with my opinion, myself. Especially if you're invoking a type of god or goddess. Bit distasteful.

    It may have "only" got to #7 but it stayed on the charts for a very long time. So the peak means nothing, really. It's one of the most played songs of the modern era. Love Is A Losing Game is the one Amy song i truly love.

    Slow is great (another i bought - also bought the album) but i'm not as enamoured with it as some. It's certainly not her best chart topper.

    I am not too fond of "Can't Get You Out Of My Head". The rest of her 2000s of Kylie's #1s are good and, depending on the mood, all of them can be my borderline top 100.

    #21 Arctic Monkeys – When The Sun Goes Down

    Year of release: 2006
    Genre: Post-punk revival, Indie Rock
    #1 in the UK


    I prefer the second Arctic Monkeys' number one single to their debut one, mainly because of the better production, pulsating tempo and a great, great music video.
    Maybe I put this a bit too low, but there are some cheesy shockers on the way in my top 20.

    #20 Matchbox Twenty - Bent

    Year of release: 2000
    Genre: Alternative Rock, Pop/Rock
    #1 in USA, Canada


    I am prepared to get a lot of backlash for putting "Bent" this high. It might seem like a pretty standard pop/rock single of the early 2000s, but I just can't get enough of Rob Thomas' voice here, especially during the "Start bending me/Keep bending me until I'm completely broken in" mid 8.
    There are multiple meanings to this song and it's quite open for interpretation. Rob Thomas told Billboard magazine that it's "a love song and a rock song; there's a hopeful tone to it. It's kind of like the person is saying, 'As misguided as I may be, these are things that it takes to be with me.'
    I'm a bit surprised Rob Thomas' solo career didn't really work out, he seemed to have it all to make it.
