Billboard put out their list of the top songs of the decade, which unlike lists from other publications, is based entirely on audience impressions (airplay, record sales, online streaming, etc.). At the top of the list was Mariah Carey’s “We Belong Together,” from Mariah’s 2005 release The Emancipation of Mimi. The entire list is pretty much what you’d expect, with Black Eyed Peas managing to place in the top ten twice with “Boom Boom Pow” and “I Gotta Feeling” and the critically unassailable Nickelback getting in there with “You Remind Me.” However, there are some odd inclusions in the top ten including Mario’s “Let Me Love You,” and “Apologize” by Timbaland. Surely “Hey Ya,” at number 20, wasn’t less popular than either of those songs?
