Top 10 Pop Songs of the Decade to Add to Your iPod Now

It's been a great decade for music--the popularity of Nickelback and Smash Mouth notwithstanding. There's been so much great music-- especially this year-- that I was tempted to overlook some classics when compiling my New Year's playlist. But since New Year's is a time for reflection, I've included the past decade's best pop song (number ten) and a couple of classics from yesteryear. Conveniently, my favorite song of 2009, "My Girls" by Animal Collective, was remixed into a dance-friendly party jam by HATCHMATIK. I've begun my list with this joyous track, but don't forget to start things off traditionally with, "Auld Lang Syne" by Guy Lombardo & His Royal Canadians: "Should an old acquaintance be forgot..."

Spike your eggnogg with some top shelf rum-- eff the recession, it's soon to be New Year's Eve!-- and turn this thing up to eleven. Happy holidays!
