Day #34 00s Songs That I Adore: Part Two

Here we are again, revisiting the decade that I grew up in so I can listen to songs that contain all of the cringe-worthy memories that I thought I left in the 00s. I do think that this decade does house some of the BEST songs and I would like to share the next few with you:

1. She Will Be Loved – Maroon 5 (2002)

How can anyone listen to this and not love it? The mood that this song creates is one I like to be in. I always put this song on if I am finding it hard to get to sleep or I want to relax. Even though the song isn’t really happy, I always felt really calm when listening to this and I love that. I probably didn’t really start listening to this song until a lot later than 2002 (I was only 4 to be honest) but it’s still a song from mychildhood.

2. “I Do Not Hook Up” – Kelly Clarkson (2009)

When listening to a few songs recently, the All I Ever Wanted album came on and I fell in love with it all over again. My little, very old iPod nano had this whole album on it and I just replayed it and replayed it. It was the album of my last year at primary school for me. I fully recommend it!

3. “On a Night Like This” – Kylie (2000)

I hadn’t heard this song since I went to a Kylie concert when I was 4… 15 years ago! But, it’s such a tune. As a Kylie concert was my very first concert, I have this love for her albums. My all time favourite of hers is “Especially For You” with Jason Donovan but that was a little older than 17 years ago. I miss Kylie being in the charts because her songs were amazing.

4. “So Sick” – Neyo (2006)

I fell in love with this song when Kurt Hugo Schneider covered it with Max Schneider and Sam Tsui and it was incredible. Since then I am played both that version and the original on repeat and have loved them. It’s one of them songs that doesn’t really get old. It could have come out in 2017 or 1997 or 2027 and still get to number one.

5. When Love Takes Over – David Guetta ft. Kelly Rowland (2009)

This song isn’t at it’s best until you are driving when it’s sunny and your windows are down and you aren’t embarrassed to reach the high notes in the chorus. Yes, that was me in June in the hot weather on the way to work. I had some funny looks but I had sunglasses on and I went past quick enough for people not to get a full concert from myself so it was OK.

6. “You’ve Got The Love” – Florence and the Machine (2009)

If this is on, I am singing. At home, in the supermarket, mid way through a conversion with my Nana, don’t care. I am singing. I understand that a lot of people don’t like this version of the song but I can’t fault it. It’s a shame it’s such a short song but that just means I can replay it more and sing louder every time. It’s a really good end of movie song or the end scene of the end episode of Gossip Girl. It makes that scene so much better than it already was.

7. “Can’t Fight The Moonlight” – Leanne Rimes (2002)

Cayote Ugly is a classic. I remember watching this movie in RE (yes, our RE lessons at school were hardly serious) and first falling in love with this song. I had watched the movie before my RE lesson but there was something about being in a room with other people boogieing along to this song that makes you appreciate it more. Weirdly, I got an A in my RE GCSE hahaha.

8. “Chasing Pavements* – Adele (2008)

I am so proud to be in the “early Adele appreciation” group of people. I thought she dropped off the face of the earth after this amazing song and than bam, there she is winning a billion Grammys. She is incredible and I really don’t think you need me telling you that to know.

9. “Let Me Love You” – Mario (2004)

For ages, I couldn’t get over that Mario is the fella from Step Up the movie that produces all the music for Channing Tatum to dance to. He was a little bit of a one hit wonder but since his one hit was this, I am more than happy. Similar to “So Sick”, I just feel like it could get to number one in any decade or era. Amazing.

10. “Stickwitu” – The Pussycat Dolls (2005)

After tonight, this is my new favourite song that I will now have to listen to on repeat until I hate it. I forgot how wonderful this song is but now I will certainly be showing it the appreciation it deserves. This is one amazing thing that has come out of writing this blog post haha.

And there’s my next 10 00’s songs. I adore writing blog posts like this because I now have an amazing playlist on Spotify which I will now be obsessed with for the next few weeks until I probably create a new one. I hope you have enjoyed this post and I will see you tomorrow for day #34!

    You made me go back in time, if I think about the 00’s my jams were Toxic and I’m not a girl by Britney Spears!
    Love, Mimi xx
