Millennium Playlist Day One: #100-81

100. The Attic - Sail Away (2007)
Best bit - 2:16 The chorus comes in again, this time with trumpets and a full boost of epic schmaltz.

99. Kaiser Chiefs - I Predict A Riot (2004)
Best bit - 3:09 The final, endless build-up. Enough to incite a riot.

98. Girls Aloud - I Don't Really Hate You (2005)
Best bit - 0:30 Good enough to be the chorus, but it's not. Ditto for this song. Good enough to be a single, but it's not even an album track.

97. The Pipettes - Pull Shapes (2006)
Best bit - 1:55 The music stops, but the song starts to officially become an anthem.

96. Private - Crucify My Heart (2007)
Best bit - 0:35 The first time that brilliant Michael Jackson meets Like A Prayer chorus comes in.

95. The Crash - Still Alive (2003)
Best bit - 0:35 The moment where this reveals itself as a full-blown synth epic. Van Halen would be proud.

94. The Ark - Death To The Martyrs (2007)
Best bit - 2:43 You've gotta love a children's choir singing "you sorry ass" over and over again. Unexpected, to say the least.

93. The Galvatrons - Cassandra (2009)
Best bit - 0:00 That dramatic 80's intro kicks things off right at the start. For those who were kids in the 80's, it sounds just like the theme to the original Transformers movie.

92. Robyn - Konichiwa Bitches (2005)
Best bit - 2:18 The "dog on a bone" part. It just cracks me up every time.

91. Carpark North - Human (2005)
Best bit - 0:02 The beat. Wow, the beat.

90. Outkast - Hey Ya! (2003)
Best bit - 2:47 "Shake it like a polaroid picture." Probably one of the best lines of the decade.

89. Ladyhawke - Back Of The Van (2008)
Best bit - 0:23 The first time we hear the vocals and are reminded instantly of the best of female 80's singers.

88. My Chemical Romance - Welcome To The Black Parade (2006)
Best bit - 1:47 The moment when the song explodes. It goes absolutely crazy from this point on.

87. Darren Hayes - Casey (2008)
Best bit - 0:54 That glorious, soaring chorus. Hayes' best solo song, and his best of the decade.

86. The Darkness - I Believe In A Thing Called Love (2002)
Best bit - 0:48 When the song abandons all hope of being credible. Whether you like it or hate it, you'll remember Justin Hawkins' falsetto.

85. Do Me Bad Things - Time For Deliverance (2004)
Best bit - 0:54 The song at full thrust, with a chorus sung by what sounds like a rock and roll choir.

84. Dyno - Deliverance (2009)
Best bit - 2:04 A fantastic middle eight that builds the song into something even more dramatic.

83. Keane - Lovers Are Losing (2008)
Best bit - 0:00 From the get-go, this was more grand and stately than anything Keane had done before.

82. Scissor Sisters - Mary (2004)
Best bit - 0:14 The beautiful opening couplet sets the tone for the rest of the song.

81. Superheroes - Rich And Famous (2002)
Best bit - 1:19 A welcome return for that dynamic, sunny synth hook.
