And as the 00s come to a close, the rock sites have spoken. Collecting their favorite songs, albums, artists, one-hit wonders, and more of the decade, the blogosphere is alive with compilations of the 00s. I’ve decided to round up a few that I enjoyed. The Rock and Roll Guru will not be rounding up the best of anything from this past decade, but my top 10 albums of 2009 will be posted a little later this month. Be on the lookout for it. In the meantime, enjoy this edition of The Roundup!
The Top 100 Songs
And so it begins… Here is (the first of what I expect will be many) a list of the top 100 songs of the 00s. 3 Minutes 49 Seconds have begun their compilation and I expect that many bloggers will follow pursuit as the months move onward.
The Top 100 Albums
Here is a post on the top 100 albums of the 00s. This comes from The Screen Door. I like the introduction reference to the relevance of the LP in today’s society.
One Hit Wonders
Billboard.com has their One Hit Wonders of the decade. It’s fun remembering some of these songs that were so huge for a while. My only objection is that Hinder is NOT a one hit wonder. It just happens that Lips Of An Angel was a HUGE song.
The Readers Choice
Rolling Stone has posted their end of the decade reader’s poll. It looks like Green Day was the fan favorite, but there are lots of other delicious gems in here.
