Millennium Playlist Day Two: #80-61

80. Pleasure - Out Of Love (2006)
Best bit - 0:16 When the beat kicks in, followed by some sublimely heavenly vocals.

79. Moneybrother - Blow Him Back Into My Arms (2005)
Best bit - 2:30 The longing and anguish is incredibly affecting, and leads up to the final release in the frantic chorus.

78. Linda Sundblad - Oh Father (2006)
Best bit - 0:40 The naughty, Madonna-worthy chorus reveals that Sundblad's solo career is going to be anything but boring.

77. Hedwig & The Angry Inch - Origin Of Love (2001)
Best bit - 3:01 The anthematic, sing-along part that will be familiar to fans of the movie as it's rehashed at a critical point.

76. Daggers - Forsaken (2008)
Best bit - 1:13 Can't beat that second verse.

75. Girls Aloud - The Promise (2008)
Best bit - 1:58 Song goes from nice and pretty to full-on soaring.

74. Daniel Bedingfield - Gotta Get Thru This (2000)
Best bit - 0:21 Thus begins the catchiest melody of 2000. Everyone thought he was a lady when they heard this.

73. Melody Club - Killing A Boy (2004)
Best bit - 1:11 Break it and break it and break it and break it 'til it's gone!

72. The Killers - Mr. Brightside (2004)
Best bit - 0:31 Are we relieved or disappointed that he says "chest" instead of rhyming properly with "sick"?

71. Alcazar - Stay The Night (2009)
Best bit - 2:13 The drums completely take over, and the drums, honestly, are what make this song brilliant.

70. The Sounds - Living In America (2002)
Best bit - 0:52 This song doesn't get the credit for being as snotty and controversial as it is. Screw the American dream, apparently.

69. Neon Neon - I Told Her On Alderaan (2008)
Best bit - 2:51 Love the final chorus, accented with that gorgeous counter-melody.

68. Lil' Chris - I Never Noticed (2006)
Best bit - 0:00 From the atmospheric opening, you know this is gonna be different from anything else on the album.

67. Delays - You And Me (2006)
Best bit - 0:17 The strings come in, signaling the start of one of the best albums of the decade.

66. Prozzak - Saturday People (2000)
Best bit - 0:53 Those stompy clappy things (how else to describe them?). There's nothing better.

65. Dyno - Don't Speak Love (2008)
Best bit - 0:50 The aftermath of the chorus.

64. Private - Stranger In The Night (2007)
Best bit - 1:08 Seriously, did Michael Jackson sing on this track? It's uncanny.

63. Superfamily - Warszawa (2007)
Best bit - 0:01 What a grand, majestic opening.

62. SuperJupiter - Got To Get Some (2007)
Best bit - 0:34 Try not moving to this. It's a physical impossibility.

61. Ola Svensson - S.O.S. (2007)
Best bit - 0:38 One of the most bombastic, pure pop choruses of the decade. Sure it's cheesy. Who cares?

great list and so eclectic too! I'm always disappointed he didn't rhyme with "sick" but I somehow manage to muddle on :)
