The best of the 2000s mix

Another decade down, and only one and half to go, give or take a few years. And not a moment too soon if I’m honest. Don’t get me wrong, I love making mixes and playlists, but sticking to one theme is starting to test even my patience. Getting into the homestretch though, so no point in stopping now. Up next I’m going to do some kind of condensed version of the 50s, since the term “rock and roll” didn’t really latch on until later in the decade, even if it had been used earlier. I’ll probably end up starting around 1954 or maybe 56, but we’ll see. After that, I’m finishing up with the 60s, which will be no easy task.

Here’s the cumulative Best of the 2000s mix to put a nice tidy bow on that decade. The usual restrictions don’t apply to this one, other than the one song per artist rule, and I’m not going to write more about each song since that was covered in the individual year mixes, which you can find collected here.
