Songs of the decade.

Was listening to Shan and Rozz today on radio and they were doing some “songs of the decade” special today. For some reason, almost all of the songs brought me back to those days when the songs were always aired on the radio.

I can’t really remember all of the songs, but here are those that I remembered:

Drops of Jupiter by Train
I remember listening to this song every Friday night at 987’s Top 20 Countdown and it was number 1 for quite a few weeks. For some reason, back then, the title of this song made me feel as though I have a blanket covering me on cold nights, and it was my lullaby for quite sometime. 🙂

Train came out with a new single recently, “Hey Soul Sister”. I thought it’s quite catchy but somehow still I like Drops of Jupiter better.

Complicated by Avril Lavigne
This was Avril Lavigne’s first single (it’s been so long). I liked her songs quite a lot and even bought her album after Sk8er Boi came out. I love the artwork of that album.

2002 was a year when I was still confused about school and everything. Confused about many things and got quite “emo” (that’s the only word that I can use to describe). Everyday after school would be to stay at home, do work and listen to my CDs.

The Reason by Hoobastank
I learnt the drums for this myself within a day. haha. Simple, yet just catches everyone’s attention. 🙂

You’re Beautiful by James Blunt
I have to admit, there was a point in time when I got very irritated at listening to this song. It was only until about 2 years of not listening to this song that I was okay to listening to it.

Oh ya, once, in China, I was with Huzz and I think Liying in a taxi when the radio played this song and they didn’t censor the word “F888888 high”. Interesting but no one really noticed it anyway.

Sexy Back by Justin Timberlake
Honestly, I don’t really have much recognition about this song until the beginning of this year. I guess it was because I went to Chengdu for 4 months, and lost touch with all the songs that were “in” during that period (I lived on Tank’s songs and a lot of oldies that the driver listened to every morning on our way to work. Imagine that!). The term “sexyback” was used very frequently and it was after a while before I learnt about this song. Lol

Alright, the end. 🙂
