Top Songs of the Decade: 100-71

I see no reason to end the decade in any fashion other than the exact same way I've lived most of it. That is to say, making completely superfluous lists that are nothing but opinion and that no one but me cares about any way.

With that out of the way, here is the first of my four posts bringing you my favorite songs of the decade. We don't have a quick and easy was to refer to the last decade (nor will we really have one for the next ten years unless you're crazy about saying "the Teens, which I am most certainly not) so rather than call it "my favorite songs of the 00's I just went with Top songs of the decade.

Featured here is the young Australian artist, Missy Higgins who is on the list 3 times with her own tracks as well as a contributor to another. Despite hitting it big at a very young age, Missy is taking her time between projects which led to her only putting out two full length albums in the decade. Even with such a small about of work, I named her as one of my favorite artists of the decade, and hope that she will stay active in the decade to come.
