The aughts are very significant for me, musically. 2001 was the year I started high school and was introduced to new friends and, by extension, new music. This trend continued as I progressed through high school and entered college.
Here are my favorite covers and remakes of songs released from 2000-2009.
“Hey Ya!” / Obediah Parker / Originally OutKast (2003)
“Love Machine” / Arctic Monkeys / Originally Girls Aloud (2004)
“Kids” / Yoda Will Always Be With You” / Originally MGMT (2008)
“Love in This Club” / The Automatic / Originally Usher (2008)
“I’m Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How to Dance With You” / Kate Nash / Originally Black Kids (2008)
