Ok, so 3 months have passed since 2004 ended and you've had a little time to dwell on what songs were the best songs out that year. So lets hear what everyone's top 5 songs of 2004 are. For me: #1 Live Like You Were Dying: Tim Mcgraw One of the most beautiful songs ever written. You don't have to be a big time country fan to appreciate this song, the lyrics, and McGraw's delivery. #2 World Inside my Head: Sister Hazel This new release off of their Lift album didn't get any attention at all in 2004 due to bad management decisions by the record label. However, it is my #2 song of the year because I can relate to the song so well and because Sister Hazel performs it so well. #3 Old Habits Die Hard: Mick Jagger From the Alfie soundtrack (terrible movie) this song is a great song to just listen to. It's hard to describe it, but it's addictive and has the largest play count in my itunes music library. Mick proves in this song that he can still rock. #4 **** it: Eamon This one hit wonder song has to be my 4th favorite song of 2004. This song is so original in that it starts out as being a slow R&B song about a breakup that by the chorus turns into a scathing song of harsh words directed at his former girlfriend. For me, the song was laughably entertaining and fun to listen to. #5 Lets Get it Started: Black Eyed Peas Much better recording of the song than the "Lets get retarded" version that appears on their album. This song has a lot of jive and is great to listen/dance to. It makes my list in the #5 slot. Other notable tracks that were great in 2004 that did not make my top 5 list: Jesus Walks: Kanye West Oceano: Josh Groban Heaven: Los Lonely Boys Boulevard of Broken Dreams: Green Day I don't wanna be: Gavin Degraw * out cursing entirely.
