MEMORIAL ADDRESS | AYUMI HAMASAKI

Voted By: @RUNAWAY
Year: 2003
Country of Origin: Japan
Appearance: 2nd

RUNAWAY COMMENTARY:
this song shakes me to my core every single listen, and half of the time I can’t make it through without nearly breaking down in tears. It’s just so heavy, but this is another song that defined my youth. I was 14 when this song came out, and was still struggling with my own problems, and while this song is terribly sad lyrically, it was actually able to help me heal from my own traumas at the time. Thank you Ayu <3

SAY MY NAME | DESTINY'S CHILD

Voted By: @londonrain
Year: 2000
Country of Origin: USA
Appearance: 3rd

londonrain commentary:
This one squeaked into the eligibility period, largely because it took so long to reach #1 in the US (twelve weeks, the longest journey to #1 of any Destiny's Child single). I can forgive how Beyoncé-heavy the song is because she just carries off the whole storyline so well and her enunciation is so perfect that even the rapid-fire pre-choruses are crystal clear. The New Yorker described the "slippery rap-style syncopations" in the song as a sound that "didn't exist in the world before Beyoncé", continuing: "If they sound 'normal' now, it’s because Beyoncé, and her many followers, have retrained our ears."


 
Seeing as we've just had a 90s crossover moment, it's a good time to put out there that the Ultimate 2000s reveals are very likely to get finished at some point in 2023. It would be cool if we could continue the tradition with an Ultimate 1990s countdown. I'm not putting myself up for running another one of those for many reasons, primarily not remembering my existence before 2000 (mess). So if anyone would like to host Ultimate Song Justice of the 90s, consider the role up for grabs! Say My Name is totally getting my points if when that happens!
