Top 100 Songs 2000

top-100-songs-2000

Ten years ago, I had the idea of coming up with my own yearly top 100 songs. Since then, I haven’t stopped the enjoyment.

Whoohoo! We survived the Bug. But now what’s bugging us is the fact that we were stupid to think 9 is the last number in the order when in fact it’s 0 (zero). Heck! Who cares. We’ve started partying and we ain’t gonna stop.

Wikipedia.com lists down some noteworthy events in music from the most unforgettable year in modern history and are as follows:

~ January 1 – At exactly midnight EST in New York City, Prince plays his classic song “1999” to celebrate the new century, and then vows to never play it again.
