Best of decade list already?

Leave it to Pitchfork to beat everyone to the punch (by 5 years or so) with a 'best of' list for the decade - Top 100 Singles: 2000-04. Not sure I understand why, but I read it through and made a playlist from it, so can't really poo-poo it and continue to digest it... then again. It's a bit hip-hop heavy for my taste, but I nonetheless find myself enjoying the mix immensely.

Outkast and Jay-Z lead the way with four songs each, Eminem, White Stripes and Missy Elliott all with three songs each. And what came out #1? Repeat after me... Power Music. Electric Revival.

There were 70* in Rhapsody of the 100 total...for your listening enjoyment, I've broken it down down as such:
100-51 (tracklisting)
50-1 (tracklisting)

*Pitchfork included whole EP's as part of their mix and I represented them with one song, using title track when possible.
