This is why I think Billboard is so cool, they’re always coming up with these cool features. Amongst other ‘end of the decade’ lists, they’ve compiled one of the biggest ‘one-hit’ wonders and actually, it’s quite the trip down memory lane! Fat Joe takes the number 2 spot (“Lean Back”), Mims (“This Is Why I’m Hot” lol) is firmly at number 4, but most shockingly Gnarls Barkley  (“Crazy”) sits at 7. Now, I understand they didn’t achieve much commericial success after “Crazy” but both they’re albums were brilliant. So, not sure that one deserves to be there, but any how – check the top 20 below…

  1. Daniel Powter – “Bad Day” (who?)
  2. Terror Squad – “Lean Back”
  3. Crazy Town – “Butterfly”
  4. Mims – “This Is Why I’m Hot”
  5. D4L – “Laffy Taffy” (LOL!)
  6. James Blunt – “You’re Beautiful”
  7. Gnarls Barkley – “Crazy” (Booo!)
  8. Blu Cantrell – “Hit Em’ Up Style” (big tune still)
  9. Bo Nice – “He Loves Me Not”
  10. Dream – “He Loves U Not” (wow! ‘member this?)
  11. J-Kwon – “Tipsy”
  12. Cassie – “Me & U” (ouch)
  13. Lou Bega – “Mambo Number 5” (one, two, three, four five everybody…)
  14. Lil’ Romeo – “My Baby
  15. Lumidee – “Never Leave You (Uh Ooh)”
  16. Hinder – “Lips Of An Angel”
  17. Kevin Little – “Turn Me On”
  18. Young Bloodz & Lil’ Jon – “Damn”
  19. Fort Minor Feat Holly Brook – “Where’d You Go”
  20. Samantha Mumba – “Gotta Tell You” (Damn, this takes me BACK!)

…Interesting/funny right? Some of those tracks still annoy me, but then others are still big tunes (shameful, maybe. True, yes). Check out the FULL LIST HERE and while you’re at it look at the other ones they have like a list of every number 1 during this decade and the songs that stayed at number one the longest during the past 10 years (who you think is number 1?).

There are some other great lists out there too, like Nielsen Soundscan’s who today announced that Eminem is the biggest selling artist of the decade and that Flo Rida’s “Low” was the biggest selling digital download (damn). Check the FULL LIST HERE.

Peace, Love & 00’s
