I'm gonna post my own list later in this comments thread and it will be SO different.

I agree with your sentiments about Isaac Brock but not necessarily the song choice. Not their greatest, but still one holy hell of a song-one of the first I ever really fell in love with as a kid.

I approve!

Also it'll only be 50 songs.

Later tonight or tomorrow.

Bring it, Jones.

Man, I'm probably gonna look at this in the morning and be like "What sorta dope was this produced from?" but as of right now, here it is, my personal favorite 50 songs of the millennium:

1. Gravity Rides Everything-Modest Mouse

In lieu of any actual analysis, I'd be happy to defend my picks on this list 'til Kingdom Come. One of the reasons I didn't comment a ton on your list, even though I enjoyed reading it, is because we occupy pretty different spheres of influence-yours seems to be indie, electronica and R&B while mine is indie, metal and a little rap. Still, you asked for a list at some point I remember and...well, there it is. Like I said, I'll probably see it tomorrow and be like "What the tits?" but until then, this is it.

Martin, for #1, you misspelled "Big Pimpin'."
