The 2000s: The Top 909 at 90.9 The Bridge

2000-2009:

Top 909 Songs According to
90.9 The Bridge

Over the fourth of July holiday in 2022, Kansas City radio station 90.9 The Bridge did a countdown of the top 909 songs of the 2000s, as determined by listener votes. I’ve attempted to make this list as accurate as possible, which includes correcting mistakes, such as incomplete titles, which were on the original list. I’ve added the years of the songs’ releases. Sharp readers will note there are some songs outside of the 2000-2009 window. I’m not sure how they ended up on the list. The list at 90.9 the Bridge also frustratingly doesn’t even list 909 titles!

Lilith Fair: Top 100 Songs

Lilith Fair:

Top 100 Songs

Lilith Fair wasn’t exactly a genre, but it was a celebration of female artists in the late 1990s. Discouraged by radio programmers and concert promoters who didn’t think it was commercially viable to have two female artists perform back to back, Sarah McLachlan launched the Lilith Fair festival in the summer of 1997. The concept was to feature only female artists or female-led bands. More than 30 dates featured over 70 performers. The festival was successful enough to spawn follow-ups in 1998 and 1999.

This list was generated by taking all those artists who performed from 1997 to 1999 and ranking their songs. Songs released after 1999 were excluded.

Alan Parsons: Top 100 Songs

Alan Parsons (right) & Eric Woolfson (left)

Top 100 Songs

Alan Parsons was born December 20, 1948, in London, England. Early in his career, he worked as an engineer on classic albums such as the Beatles’ Abbey Road and Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. He also worked with Ambrosia, the Hollies, Pilot, and Al Stewart. He has received 13 Grammy nominations.

In 1976, he launched the Alan Parsons Project with Eric Woolfson (born 3/18/1945 in Scotland). While the group had an ever-changing lineup, Parsons and Woolfson remained constants until 1987. The pair then worked together on Woolfson’s Freudiana project before going their separate ways. Woolfson then focused on musical theater, bringing some of the Alan Parsons Project’s work to the stage. Parsons recorded as a solo artist. Woolfson died on December 2, 2009.

This list also includes the short-lived group Keats which featured neither Parsons nor Woolfson, but was comprised of members who’d worked with the Alan Parsons Project.

About the Song:

“Running Up That Hill” was released as the lead single for Kate Bush’s fifth album, Hounds of Love. In her native UK, the song reached #3 on the charts, her fifth single to make the top 10. She’d had much less success in the United States where her only chart hit on the Billboard Hot 100 had been 1978’s “The Man with the Child in His Eyes” reaching #85. However, “Hill” gave Bush her solitary top 40 hit in the U.S., going to #30.

The song wasn’t done, though. 37 years later, it was prominently featured in the Netflix TV series Stranger Things as the favorite song of the character Max. This renewed interest in the song and it reached new chart peaks around the globe, hitting #1 in the United Kingdom, Australia, and other countries. In the United States the song climbed all the way to #4.

The song was originally called “A Deal with God,” but representatives at EMI Records hesitated to release a song with the word “God” in it. Bush changed the title, but subtitled the song “A Deal with God” on the Hounds of Love album. Executives were also more interested in releasing “Cloudbursting” as the first single but Bush pushed for “Hill” because it was the first song she wrote for the album and she thought it better represented the album. WK

Thematically, the “brutally truthful, painfully sensual song” AMG isn’t about religion, but the differences between men and women. Bush said, “If we could actually swap each others’ roles, if we could actually be in each other’s place for a while, I think we’d both be very surprised! And I think it would lead to a greater understanding.” WK She conceived the idea that “if they could make a deal with God to change places…they’d understand what it’s like to be the other person.” SF The “concept is a flip on the Faustian bargain where one makes a deal with the devil.” SF
