Melanie Walker, The Current's Music Director, revisits her favorite songs from the past decade... starting with 2000 naturally:

As we're wrapping up 2009 here at The Current I'm finding myself reminiscing not only about my favorite songs of the last year, but my favorite songs of the last decade! Every week day till New Year's Eve I'll be counting down my favorite 10 tracks of each year of the '00's and I invite you to do the same! We've got 10 days to count down our 100 personal favorites of the last decade. This is simply just for fun. I'm no authority on what was the defining music of an era. So on that note, let's kick this monster off with the year 2000!

Follow along on The Current Music blog, and comment with your favorites.
