Complex top 100 songs

Here's a list from Complex Magazine. They did top 100 albums a while ago, which I think has been picked up on and added to the spreadsheet. This one spotlights the top 100 songs of the decade.


Re: Complex top 100 songs

The #1 is just plain silly though...

Re: Complex top 100 songs

Any list with Ignition (Remix) as the #2 song is fine with me. Is this eligible?

Their albums list was eligible so this should be too. Perhaps someone can help you and type the list in this thread?

Here Ya Go...

An overwhelmingly hip-hop-oriented list (really, would "Buy U a Drank" and "Blame It"- among a couple few others- appear on any other list?) There are some alternative tracks thrown in for good measure, though. No straight-up pop (not even "Can't Get You Out of My Head!") Also extremely short on pop/R&B (there's a couple Justin Timberlake,a Rihanna- with jay-Z, of course- an Alicia Keys).

I don't think there's enough Jay-Z on the list (either as lead or featured act).

Re: Here Ya Go...

What a bizarre list. Considering it's at least 75% hip-hop, seeing songs like "All My Friends," "My Girls," and "Such Great Heights" pop up is confusing, to say the least. I was shocked that "Crazy in Love" didn't make it, I thought that would be a given.

Re: Here Ya Go...

go shawty its ur birfday, we gunna partay like its ur birfday, we gunna sip bacardi like it's ur birfday.

Re: Here Ya Go...

I don't understand this critics love for A Milli. Any other song in Tha Carter III is better than it. In fact, I consider this the only bad track of the album.

Re: Here Ya Go...

I don't understand the critics' love of 50 Cent and R. Kelly.


"In Da Club," especially. It's just one loop over and over throughout the track. The only track I like that 50 Cent is featured on is The Game's "Hate It or Love It."

I never got into R. Kelly too much, either. Neither he or 50 are ranked all that high on the site (at least not in the top 200; hopefully that won't change too much. ha)
