      Just listen...And start feeling. So powerful and clean, like hovering in the air in a green April morning.
    • 9. Don't Look Back In Anger/Champagne Supernova by Oasis
      Couldn't make up my mind--both are very energetic and seem to belong to an overall story or a mindset.
    • 8. Fields of Gold by Sting
      Pure love, remembrance, and Sting's all-encompassing voice.
    • 7. Bittersweet Symphony by The Verve
      Life. Love. Thoughts. Everything in one song.
    • 6. Truly Madly Deeply by Savage Garden
      Sweet girly song, yet hits you sooner or later.
    • 5. Laura Non C'e by Nek
      You just want to jump out of bed in the morning with this one. He never produced such a sound again after this song.
    • 4. Ordinary World by Duran Duran
      Let's start flying...or descending...the substance of life, in an ordinary world. Here is where you find yourself.
    • 3. Lemon Tree by Fool's Garden
      Let's jump! Contagious, portrays solitude and rain... Modern poetry, I guess..
    • 2. Cosmic Girl by Jamiroquai
      The sound of the New Century, a couple of years ahead of everyone else..
    • 1. Breakfast at Tiffany's by Deep Blue Something
      The ultimate love song. Happy and poignant at the same time. As sweet as it sounds, it's sad in a way. Very hard to combine those two.

    I tried to make a representation of stuff that is more European... I know I'm missing REM,U2, Kula Shaker, No Doubt, Depeche Mode, Madonna, Take That, Reamonn, Santana, Shawn Mullins, Eiffel, Anna Oxa, Blur, The Corrs, Secret Garden etc. Perhaps a top 50 would have been better?!
