1. Wait, THIS is the song of the Millennium?
Even though we are only 13 years into this millenium there is a song that has been crowned the best…so far.
Grantland.com ran a competition in tennis-style rounds where songs were paired together, only advancing to the next round if they secured the most votes.
The voters were predominantly male but surprisingly Adele’s ‘Rolling in the Deep’ ended up in the grand final. The best song? Outkast’s ‘Hey Ya’ with over 34,000 votes.
It’s probably not the first song you think of but when you think about it, this is the song that gets everybody moving. On the result, Grantland’s Steve Hyden said, “Rolling in the Deep and Hey Ya! were the right songs precisely because they don’t appeal just to the fans.”
“They appeal to everybody. You might think you hate one or both of these songs, but you probably had to decide to hate them, and it likely had something to do with the fact that everybody else thinks they’re awesome.”
Imma let you finish, but if Hey Ya is the standard we’re going with, these are the songs we think are the ‘best’ of all the Millennium:
