Top hits of 2000: song list, clips and facts
There is no need to talk about modern radio trends: whoever is at the peak of fame today - that's who will play! In general, this has always been the case, and people have always been aware of the latest musical novelties thanks to the magic radio waves... But sometimes everything gets tiresome, and you want to listen to something you haven't heard before... Well a long time ago. At such times, we are happy to be transported back a decade or two and start "scouring the archives", as they say. In today's case, we are going back to the most early noughtiesnamely, in 2000!
The early 2000s were very interesting for Russian music: the world of pop-industry took a step forward - music videos started gaining furious popularity, a lot of legendary bands appeared on the scene (as well as "one-dayers"). In any case, this period left a lot of vivid memories, which are inextricably linked with the songs. "titans." radio of those years. So: what sounded from all the speakers in 2000? We suggest to remember together.
The Rascals are "Girls."
Who doesn't remember the Rascals with their "Girls are different."? This is, you could say, a legendary Russian pop hit, which in its time was heard from everywhere! Even in the 2010s it was actively listened to (even today sometimes...).
As soon as you hear the melody, familiar lines start playing in your head. And by the way, you can't really say that this song is without much meaning: there is clearly something vital and true in it, because all girls are really different!
Guests from the Future - "You're Somewhere"
It's a lyrical pop ballad by "Guests from the Future.". As we think it was played a lot in the early 2000s - especially in discos.
In general, the music of the noughties is distinguished by a special lightness, ease, romanticism... There is practically no such thing in modern hits, because almost all of them are aimed at some kind of coolness, boldness. And the kilogram auto-tune destroys the whole soul...
Hands Up! - "Alyoshka"
Well, this song hardly needs an introduction - and neither do its performers. There wasn't a person in the noughties who didn't listen to it "Hands Up!". This is already a cult project of its time!
"Alyoshka." is still one of the most popular songs of "Ruki Vverkh!", and nobody cares how old it is. It's even played on the radio from time to time! The test of time is the best indicator of quality, as they say.
B-2 - "Nobody Writes to the Colonel"
Many people are familiar with this B-2 hit from the film "Brother 2."although older music lovers know about it without the help of cinema.
"No one writes to the Colonel." - There's nothing much to add here, it's already a classic of Russian alternative rock. Yes, by the way, in our today's selection we decided not to limit ourselves by genre boundaries, so there are many more interesting tunes ahead of you.
Tatyana Bulanova - "My Dream"
In the noughties. Tatiana Bulanova literally never disappeared from the radio! A lot of people love her songs to this day. "My dream." - one of the most popular and recognisable.
Public opinion varies, by the way: some consider Bulanova a genius pop singer of lyrical melodies, while others call her creativity "dreary". Well: how many people, so many opinions. It will be curious to know how the subscribers of our channel feel about this singer? Share your impressions of Bulana in the comments, and we continue!
Hands Up! - "Ay-yi-yi-yi-yi."
Another not just loud, but "monster hit" from the "Hands Up!".
Years after graduation. "Ay-yi-yi-yi-yi." still continued to shine on the radio, and to be heard everywhere. Even the modern generation appreciated it!
Ivanushki International - "Run, run"
"Ivanushki International" have become literally synonymous with Russian pop music of the 2000s. And in a good way. You have to agree: there was something simple and cosy, beautiful, cheerful in their songs... A good band for its time.
By the way, in the music video for "Run, run." "Ivanushki are clearly ahead of their time: everything is filmed in the best traditions of modern trends, except that the quality is poor. But for the beginning of the noughties it is forgivable.
Sense Hallucinations - "Forever Young"
It's probably a rather unexpected track on our list. And yet.
It seems to us that the song "Forever young." can be safely classified as a hit of the 2000s, because it was a success among the listeners, which has not stopped even after decades... Believe it or not, but a few years ago it was relevant among today's youth!
Zemfira - "Seeking"
There's not much to say about this song, because it's just cool for its time, and that's all it says!
Zemfirawas without a doubt a big sensation in the Russian scene of the early noughties. Many of her songs have become iconic in the history of our industry, and no matter how one feels about her, her work continues to thrive and make an impact.
