Seanin00s - a Spotify Playlist

So Pitchfork are doing their P2K run-down of the songs of the decade. I've been slowly putting together DiS' coverage in the background. I'm still deliberating on what the acts/songs/bands of the decade are (I wanna do a definitive editorial list, lots of discussion sparking lists and the ultimate reader census, with all sorts of bells and whistles).

Anyway, in the meantime, here's my 90-songs-so-far Spotify "mixtape" of my favourite songs of The Noughties (not in any order other than listenable coherence). What have I forgotten and what's on your premature end-of-decade digital mixtape? I might add 10 requests and run this on Friday on DiS as a Spotifriday playlist.
