Time for our resident long-haired college radical (but still a darned nice guy) to offer his musical insights into mainstream Songfactor country, as we highlight

TheLizard's Personal Top Ten

I had an almost completely different list a few weeks ago that reflected my taste of music from the 50s until now, but there were so many well-known songs and songs that have already been in other PTT lists that I decided, since I've learned so much from this process, that I owe it to the Songfacts community to throw some music out there that they may not have heard. As such, here are 50 of my favorite songs from 2000-2010 (with a concentration on the last few years). - Tim

There are two songs on Tim's video list that I don't see on the list here.

There's only 48 listed :confused:

Also is there a way of turning on the "continuous autoplay" feature on this playlist?, so I can listen to it while I do other stuff.

This was incredibly, incredibly hard. Not necessarily in the same way that other lists have been hard, but more because this kind of music isn't what I listen to at all and I had to listen hard to pick my top 10. But I did and I enjoyed it. :)
