Q is for...

QU...They Might Be Giants, 2005

The time has finally come when I ought to celebrate the aughts, and the music they brought, for the a-z challenge this year

I am really thankful we had so many They Might Be Giants children's albums to keep us entertained during so many hours in the car. Plus, Here Come the ABC's is also super helpful for the a-z challenge tough letters!

P is for...

Promiscuous...Nelly Furtado, 2006

The time has finally come when I ought to celebrate the aughts, and the music they brought, for the a-z challenge this year

Before we get to today's letter, we should recognize that it is actually yesterday's letter because I missed a day. I also realized that there was a different song I meant to post for the letter O. Oops! I am not sure we can fully revel in that which was the 2000s without Miss Britney...

The aughts really were a glorious time to have young children who wanted to listen to the top forty station. Such wholesome family music.

The time has finally come when I ought to celebrate the aughts, and the music they brought, for the a-z challenge this year


If you liked Clap Your Hands at letter C, here is another one that is even more fun. You're welcome!

Rest in peace Chester Bennington.

M is for...

Mr. Brightside...The Killers, 2004

The time has finally come when I ought to celebrate the aughts, and the music they brought, for the a-z challenge this year

It's kind of funny to consider how often I have belted out the lyrics to this song, but possibly not gotten the emotion behind it. Maybe I just haven't properly separated jealousy from other typical relationship woes like sadness and regret. I do know that by the final chorus there is usually some steering wheel drumming and disappointment when it ends, so I have definitely always felt something.

L is for...

Low...Flo Rida, 2008

The time has finally come when I ought to celebrate the aughts, and the music they brought, for the a-z challenge this year

Even without the video, that once again I have probably never seen, I think you can see the club...and once I deciphered some of the words, the baggy sweatpants and the Reeboks with the strap. The picture is so vivid and you can literally feel the beat of the club as well as the vibe.

K is for...

Kryptonite...3 Doors Down, 2000

The time has finally come when I ought to celebrate the aughts and the music they brought for the a-z challenge this year

I was such an MTV junkie back in the eighties, spending many a summer afternoon waiting for some favorite video that I wouldn't know until I saw it. Here we are decades later, and I am not even sure if they play actual music videos on MTV anymore. Every year when I do this challenge though, there are the videos. Of course I remember this song, but I am certain I have never seen this video before, as I would definitely remember! There is even an awesome cape!
