Girls Aloud - "The Show"
Last of two entries. This song is so catchy and funny but it's one of their most forgetable singles.
Ciara feat. Petey Pablo - "Goodies"
Probably her best song. The beat is infectious I can't blame her for going #1.
The All-American Rejects "My Paper Heart"
Their most underrated single. I actually loved their debut album.
Stacie Orrico - "I Promise"
Sweet melody, sweet vocals, sweet lyrics. This song is an ear candy at its best. A little average and forgetable though.
Kelly Clarkson "The Trouble With Love Is"
Kelly's debut album is filled with hidden gems. Not very radio friendly but her vocals slay lives.
Usher & Alicia Keys - "My Boo"
Never been a big fan of Usher but back in 04 he released decent songs. This one is too cheezy but very beautiful.
The Calling "Things Will Go My Way"
How I wish this band hadn't split up. Even now I still love their albums. This song is kind of sad.
JoJo feat. Bow Wow "Baby It's You"
I remember I used to be platonically in love with this girl. She was incredibly gorgeous. Her career was mishandled and it's a shame.
The Corrs - "Angel"
Another of my favorite bands from the early 00s. I love how they mix bubblegum pop with folkloric sounds.
Jesse McCartney "Beautiful Soul"
I wish I coud spend a summer the way they did in this video. The song is nice aswell.
Muse - "Time Is Running Out"
My favorite song by this band. It's their signature, so different, so amazing.
McFly "Five Colours In Her Hair"
Last of 4 entries. This song remains as their signature as of now.
Linkin' Park "From The Inside"
I didn't even know they had released this song but it's quite good. Better than most of their recent stuff.
My Chemical Romance "I'm Not Okay (I Promise) "
I'm not sure if this song is too weird or its true meaning is beyond me. It's great though.
Alanis Morissette "Eight Easy Steps"
This song made me remember how much I miss the old Alanis. Criminally underrated.
Destiny's Child "Lose My Breath"
This song is pure fire. Call it a guilty pleasure but I love it, beyond catchy.
Alicia Keys - "Karma"
I'm in love with the violin beat in this song. Alicia looks amazing in the music video. I don't get why this flopped.
Kylie Minogue "Red Blooded Woman"
Kylie has always known how to be sexy and classy at the same time and this song is her best proof.
Gavin DeGraw "I Don't Wanna Be"
Most of you know this song cause of a TV Show. It's pretty enjoyable.
Keane - "Everybody's Changing"
I disagree with whomever dares to say this is their best song. It's cute and all but it gets overpraised sometimes.
