Forgotten # 1's: UK Edition (The 2000's)

THE AUGHTS ARE HERE.....finally....

It's definitely taken longer to get to this post than I would have liked, but weddings, work and The Dharma Initiative have kind of taken over my life recently. Therefore, this week's list of criminally forgotten UK hits will be described through the ancient Japanese art of the Haiku: short, sweet and slightly artistic! Enjoy!!

1.) Ghetto Gospel - 2Pac featuring Elton John (July 2, 2005)

Pac and Reginald
Make gold from Madman album track
Sample gives me chills

2.) Somethin' Stupid - Robbie Williams & Nicole Kidman (December 16, 2001)

Getting rid of Tom
Getting rid of Take That too
Frank and Nancy proud

3.) I Don't Feel Like Dancin' - The Scissor Sisters (September 6, 2006)

New York gay scene raves
Brits smart enough to listen
US likes Fergie

4.) Rise - Gabrielle (January 30, 2000)

Dylan likes this song
Lets Gabrielle use for free
Now death track means life

5.) Changes - Ozzy and Kelly Osbourne (December 14, 2003)

TV loves Ozzy
Makes him have big song with Kells
Sabbath IV kicks ass

6.) The Importance of Being Idle - Oasis (August 28, 2005)

Noel channels The Kinks
Let's The Beatles have a break
Most British track here

7.) A Little Less Conversation - Elvis Presley and JXL (June 16, 2002)

I must have a thing
For old songs reimagined
The King back on top

8.) Dry Your Eyes - The Streets (July 25, 2004)

British rap no joke
Best hip hop ballad ever
Sorry bout that L. L.

9.) When the Sun Goes Down - Arctic Monkeys (January 22, 2006)

Rock song tops the pops
And it's about a hooker
Roxanne take a bow

10.) Killing In The Name Of - Rage Against The Machine (Dec. 20, 2009)

Decade's last big hit
Came out in year '92
UK hates Simon

Let's return home for the next installment of the series. The 1950's in the US OF A go under the microscope...well, let's just say soon. See ya then!!
