Y’all did this so dirty. I was not prepared to be the first 20 pointer out!

I’m not sure I can say Baby Boy is definitively my favourite song of the 2000s, but it’s definitely very high on my list. I was absolutely obsessed with it when it was released, and when I hear those opening notes, I’m still obsessed even now.

There were easily several other Bey songs I could’ve put in my list, but Baby Boy felt the most right.

4Roses Commentary:
An absolute monster of a song; from the Middle Eastern-infused production to the Snoop's verse (Ashley, Nicole, Carmin, Jessica, Kimberly, Melody You feelin' me?)–truly a song that would unleash anyone's inner hoe.

I was expecting there to be at least one 'C' song before my 20-pointer was revealed!

Disco Down is my #1 Kylie track from all decades. I always find lyrics about someone looking back on a past relationship or friendship that has ended affecting, and DD is a pre-eminent example. Kylie's vocals are so enchanting, balancing humour and sadness perfectly. Musically there are so many great flourishes from guitars, synths, strings and I'm always here for bells. The ABBA and Chic references add to the overall nostalgic feel, and I adore those two groups obviously. I also love watching Kylie's performance of the song on the Anti Tour.

I was 10 when Follow Me Home was released as a single. And, quite honnestly, my jaw was on the floor. It was my first drop of trip hop (it was while religiously browsing their Wiki that I first encountered the term). I didn't know what the genre was yet but I instantly knew that it must be the best thing ever if Follow Me Home had even hints of it. I was right! Of course, being a pre-teen, the whole spies in a cold war sex trafficking operation video situation went right over my head. Hell, at least they tried to do something different! What I appreciate massively in many of their lyrics is that there was no candy-coating the cold hard truth. Yes, life sucks at times, and you want a home to return to at the end of the day, somewhere you can feel safe again and often the home are your loved ones/one. Between ages 6-24, I couldn't really say that I had felt that kind of safety. Ffff, sorry. Just edited this stream of consciousness into the key points when I could have just leave this here
