I LOVE VH1's countdown shows. Their "I love the 80s" and "I love the 90s" are great too. M and I were watching VH1's Top 100 Songs of the 2000s the other day, and reminiscing about all of the songs from when we were in college. Evie was dancing with us to "Hey Ya" by Outkast.
It was adorable! I don't think it's possible to not dance to that song.
Another dance favorite from back in the day was "Yeah" by Usher ft. Lil Jon and Ludacris. To this day, whenever I hear this song, I have flashbacks to being incredibly hung-over, attempting to take a philosophy quiz with this song banging in my head....ah, to be young again. :)
The whole list just brought back great memories. I was kind of surprised that "Crazy in Love" by Beyoncé ft. Jay-Z was #1. I thought that some of the other songs on the list were more influential, but I suppose it just depends on who is choosing the songs.
M and I have pretty strong opinions about music. When we found out that I was pregnant, M made it his goal to make sure that our child only listen to "good" music. Of course, that is by his standards, so other people would probably disagree. I can picture Evie now: she will be the only 5 year old in kindergarten who can sing the entire 2-disc set "The Essential Willy Nelson." Wow...writing that I realized that our poor kid doesn't stand a chance at being cool. Oh well, I'm sure she'll thank us for is someday!! ;)
