Previously on Adam Riff™:

Our favourite songs. One per year.


Update:

JON
1. Radiohead – "The National Anthem" [2000]
2. Finch – "What It Is to Burn (Demo)" [2001]
3. Spoon – "Stay Don't Go" [2002]
4. The Mars Volta – "Take the Veil Cerpin Taxt"
5. Ratatat – "Seventeen Years"
6. The Mountain Goats – "This Year"
7. DragonForce – "Through the Fire and Flames"
8. Frank Turner – "The Real Damage"
9. The Wonder Years – "You're Not Salinger. Get Over It."
10. So Many Dynamos – "New Bones"
11. Jamie Lidell – "Your Sweet Boom"
12. M83 – "Midnight City"
13. Jai Paul – "Jasmine (Demo)"
14. CHVRCHES – "The Mother We Share"
15. CFO$ – "Worlds Apart"
16. Oneohtrix Point Never – "No Good"
17. Kanye West – "Ultralight Beam"
18. GoldLink – "Crew (feat. Brent Faiyaz and Shy Glizzy)" [2017]
19. Panic! at the Disco – "High Hopes" [2018]
20. Labrinth – "Still Don't Know My Name"

Jon: I knew this song was the one before I, heh, even knew its name, noting it in Adam Riff™ Clip of the Week stray observations as "Unreleased Labrinth song over end credits (Euphoria, S01E02)" because Shazam didn't recognize it and Tunefind was of no help. In a year in which Kanye West laboured to get us closer to God, Labrinth just casually dropped a better spirit bomb than anything Kanye conceived.


ADAM ROBOT
1. Snapcase – "Typecast Modulator" [2000]
2. Rival Schools – "Travel by Telephone" [2001]
3. City of Caterpillar – "And You're Wondering How a Top Floor Could Replace Heaven" [2002]
4. Every Time I Die – "Ebolarama"
5. Codeseven – "All the Best Dreams"
6. Comeback Kid – "Wake the Dead"
7. Jesu – "Silver"
8. Rob Crow – "Up"
9. Russian Circles – "Campaign"
10. Coalesce – "Wild Ox Moan"
11. Deftones – "Rocket Skates"
12. Touché Amoré – "Home Away From Here"
13. Torche – "Kicking"
14. Coliseum – "Fuzzbang"
15. Violent Soho – "Covered in Chrome"
16. Baroness – "Chlorine and Wine"
17. Joyce Manor – "Last You Heard of Me"
18. Charly Bliss – "Westermarck" [2017]
19. Daughters – "The Reason They Hate Me" [2018]
20. Angel Du$t – "Want It All" [2019]

Adam Robot: Typically, the music I listen to leans very hard, very dark, and very loud. I can't live in the darkness forever, so here I am embracing catchy, upbeat, punk pop from a hardcore punk supergroup that doesn't make much sense on paper.


BEN
1. Outkast – "B.O.B." [2000]
2. Gob – "I Hear You Calling" [2001]
3. Justin Timberlake – "Cry Me a River" [2002]
4. The White Stripes – "Seven Nation Army"
5. Franz Ferdinand – "Take Me Out"

6. R. Kelly – "Trapped in the Closet" ***
6. Bloc Party – "This Modern Love"

7. TV on the Radio – "Wolf Like Me"
8. UGK – "Int'l Players Anthem (I Choose You) [feat. Outkast]"
9. MGMT – "Time to Pretend"
10. Passion Pit – "The Reeling"
11. LCD Soundsystem – "Dance Yrself Clean"
12. M83 – "Midnight City"
13. Bruno Mars – "Locked out of Heaven"
14. Daft Punk – "Get Lucky (feat. Pharrell Williams)"
15. Duke Dumont – "I Got You (feat. Jax Jones)"
16. Major Lazer × DJ Snake – "Lean On (feat. MØ)"
17. G.L.O.S.S. – "Give Violence a Chance"
18. Kendrick Lamar – "DNA." [2017]
19. Cardi B, Bad Bunny, and J Balvin – "I Like It" [2018]
20. Lil Nas X – "Old Town Road – Remix (feat. Billy Ray Cyrus)" [2019]

Ben: How could it be anything else? The biggest record in Billboard Hot 100 history was a country song made by a gay black teenager – obviously the only way to close out the decade. Nowadays, it's about finding happiness in the small ways you can, and Nas gave us something to be joyful about.

*** Boy, my pick of R. Kelly really aged poorly. If I can revise, I'd rather take Bloc Party's "This Modern Love."

  • "You live your life, screw up a bunch of stuff. Like, a lot of stuff. Like, to the point where people are like, 'This is messed up, even for Florida.'" (The Good Place, S04E10)

    "Uh-huh, from 24." (Joe Pera Talks With You, S02E08)
