But someone in 10 or 20 years' time looking to find the music that's most evocative of the noughties should remember that the most dependable Proustian rush is never provided by the best or most successful rock and pop music of any era. In a decade or two, the songs that will remind you the most sharply of this decade will be the ones that you'd forgotten had ever existed. The record that transports you back most efficiently to a Saturday-night town centre in the age of asbos and binge-drinking won't be Kaiser Chiefs' I Predict a Riot or the Arctic Monkeys' A View From the Afternoon, but something such as Bodyrockers' I Like the Way You Move, a novelty dance hit, that in its thick-necked, knuckle-dragging, open-gobbed stupidity inadvertently makes you think of men in Ben Sherman shirts stamping on each others' necks outside a nightclub.
^this is a quote from this article (the very end of it)
what songs will remind you of the noughties in 20 years time ?
think shit songs which were EVERYWHERE. so maybe that here come the giiiiiiiiiiiirrrrrrrrrrrrls song which was used on boots adverts. or that fratellis song that football fans sometimes chant.
so this is a thread about shit songs. great.
