Chart Rigger 10-Year Anniversary Playlist: 20 Best Pop Singles From 2005 To 2014

Good god, somehow this ultra-classy corner of the Internet called Chart Rigger has been online for 10 years, as of yesterday (January 22). It's hard to fathom that I've been typing this trash out for a full decade (or that you've been reading it), and I actually have a lot more to say on the subject — there's a very special, somewhat large project I have coming, possibly tomorrow, possibly on Monday, to commemorate the occasion.

But until then, I thought I'd share the below anniversary playlist of 20 songs I whipped up on Spotify. It's actually all of mine and Moogaboo's picks for the #1 and #2 best singles of the year from our annual list each December, beginning with the top two choices in 2005 (#1 being Kelly Clarkson's "Since U Been Gone" and #2 being — wait for it — Kelly Osbourne's "One Word") up through 2014 (#1 was Clean Bandit's "Rather Be" and #2 was Nick Jonas' "Jealous").

I think these 20 songs actually make for a nice soundtrack to the past decade. I hope you enjoy!

And thanks again so much for reading my twisted takes on pop each day over the past 10 years. Like I said, there's a special feature I'm putting together for the occasion, so stay tuned!
