Top 200 Songs of the Decade: 200–101.

I was inspired by Pitchfork's list of The Top 500 Tracks of the 2000s to create my own list. I don't have the time or inclination to make a list of 500 tracks, so I decided on 200, which took forever anyway. I slowly pared down the tracks on my computer to list of about 300, then ranked those further, then even further. My eyes are starting to hurt, but my ears are opening up to wonderful music. Here are the back 100, in no particular order.

I don't recognize any of them. I only recognized two of the artists. No big band? No Count Basie?

Did Big Band make a comeback that I'm unaware of?
