Top Summer Songs of the ’00s

The Y! Music Playlist Blog (NEW)

Hit songs will be remembered forever, but the most memorable will always be the hits of summer. Every summer there are certain songs that seem to be everywhere you turn. These are the songs that will always be associated with that particular year.

As we wait to see what the top summer songs of 2013 will be, let's look back at the decade of the 00s. For this playlist, I've looked at Billboard's number one hit songs from the years 200o through 2009. I then determined which songs spent the most weeks at number one in the months of June, July and August. The winner of each year is contained in this playlist.

The end result is a playlist that contains true top 10 summer hits of the 00s.

2009 is a year that really stood out. The whole summer (and then some) was dominated by a single act: The Black Eyed Peas. Their #1 hits "Boom Boom Pow" and "I Gotta A Feeling" ruled the top of the charts from April 18, 2009 until October 17, 2009.

That's quite an accomplishment, in all of its Auto-tuned glory.
