Let’s take a walk down memory lane to the early 2000s music scene, where the world wasn’t shadowed in climate disaster, and we were too small to know what taxes were.
Work it – Missy Elliot
“Is it worth it? Let me work it. I put my thing down, flip it and reverse it.”
This song is definitely one of the oldies that will never be forgotten no matter what
generation it is. It is a song that you definitely want to move along to and scream the main lyrics.
Pretty sure if you played it, your mom would know the lyrics.
Take on Me – A-Ha
“Take on me, take on me). Take me on, take on me. I’ll be gone in a day or two.”
This song is a one that’s uplifting and it’s honestly hard to be gloomy with it. Having energized
rhythm that makes you want to hold an invisible microphone to just nodding your head. This
song is recommended if you want to hear a nostalgic, classic bop.
I Want It That Way – Backstreet Boys
“Tell me why, ain’t nothing but a heartache. Tell me why, ain’t nothing but a mistake.”
This is song is another nostalgic classic that reminds you of the different styles in the music, it’s
not as hyped as others but it’s enough to get you singing along with your lungs on fire.
Milkshake – Kelis
“My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard.”
When this song was released, everyone was playing it, but no one ever learned more
than the chorus. However, it was a song that stayed stuck in your head and still, years
later, I find the lyrics bopping around in my consciousness.
Fergalicious – Fergie
“Hit it Fergie! All the time I turn around brothas gather round, always looking at me up and down
looking at my uh.”
This was the song everyone wanted to learn the iconic Fergie mini “rap” and if you learned it, you were
considered the coolest kid ever. Those rights are still bestowed today, as the song still remains
as one of our favorite childhood songs.
Gold Digger – Kanye West
“Now I ain’t sayin’ she a gold digger, but she ain’t messin’ wit no broke, broke..”
This song was everyone’s favorite the moment it came out, the beat was hard, and everyone
knew the lyrics. It is definitely a favorite to play when you want a boring party to spice up,
or if you just want a good laugh while screaming the lyrics. Either way, this song is a bop.
Feel Good Inc. – Gorillaz
“Laughin’ gas these hazmats, fast cats, linin’ ’em up like ass cracks. Lay these ponies at the
track, it’s my chocolate attack.”
Gorillaz is an all time classic with strong beats and multi genre music. This is worth
hearing and a great excuse to look through more genres.
Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger – Daft Punk
“Work it harder, make it better. Do it faster, makes us stronger. More than ever, hour after hour.
Work is never over.”
This song is one of the boppest in the 2000s, although it’s underrated by the remix but
this alone is enough to start the party. With its steady build-up of rhythm to bouncing
beat that haves you on your toes.
Yeah – Usher
“Yeah! Yeah! Shorty got down low said, come and get me.”
A song that was made to move is on this list because of its quick-paced beats. The
lyrics are fun and rhythm flows with energy as you can’t help but move. Usher is known
to be on the list for his frequent bopping beats.
Kiss me Thru The Phone – Soulja Boy
“I just wanna kiss you, but I can’t right now so baby kiss me through the phone, kiss me through
the phone. See you later on.”
This song is one that everyone was obsessed with learning the phone number and those that
did, managed to get the phone number canceled. But it is a song that still bops in 2019
because of the relatable love lyrics and bopping beat.
Hope you enjoyed the boogie down memory lane!
