1. Knights of Cydonia - Muse

Knights of Cydonia was an epic number that topped the jjj Hottest 100 for the year and had an unforgettable spaghetti western-style video clip. And where, exactly, is Cydonia, you ask; it's the region of Mars containing the "Face of Mars". I guess that explains all of the holographs in the video clip (?)

2. Sweaty - Muscles

There was once a time when Sydney's Modular Recording was one of the coolest record labels going around. During it's peak, Modular Recordings signed Melbourne's Muscles and along came this feel good, catchy, alternative electronica gem.

3. Heartbroken - T2 feat. Jodie

One of the last massive UK garage hits, some may claim that this song has really aged since it's release. Well some should shut up, listen and see how long they can make it through this without busting a move.

4. Atlas - Battles

For a brief moment, this track deservedly topped club/dance charts all over the world. In it's success, it transported us all back to the late 80s/early 90s with it's nostalgic disco vibes.

7. No Pussy Blues - Grinderman

This song is probably about something deep, right? In the words of front man, Nick Cave, "it's just about not getting any pussy when I grew my moustache".

8. Shadows - Midnight Juggerauts

The Midnight Juggernauts really embodied a sound iconic of the Australian dance music scene at the time. Sitting somewhere between electronica and indie rock, they were distinctive.

Rocking stylish mullets and epic cheekbone game, Canadian duo Tegan and Sara owned the indie girl scene in the nauties.

Oh yeah, that band called '!!!' or whatever, what happened to them?

13. Stronger - Kanye West (maybe a bit more Daft Punk)

Can you think back to a time when Kanye West's ego wasn't larger life? Well maybe it has always been, but it wasn't as noticeable.

14. Pogo - Digitalism

Don't get me wrong, Digitalism are a solid indie electronica act, but damn, I can't imagine them ever outdoing Pogo. What a great track!

15. I'll Kill Her - Soko

View this video on YouTube

youtube.com

Such a sweet and benign sounding song until you listen to the lyrics. Still the cutest song about murder we've ever heard.

16. Do It Again - The Chemical Brothers

View this video on YouTube

Opinions about the video clip might be a bit polarising, but the track itself is solid.

17. Det Snurrar I Min Skalle - Familjen

View this video on YouTube

I'm not sure what the words mean, but I know them all off by heart and I sing along when I play this on repeat constantly.

18. Jimmy - MIA

View this video on YouTube

The video clip for this is just as addictive as the song. MIA is constantly proving herself to be one of the most talented artists out there.

19. Stress - Justice

This track so accurately captures the feeling it is named after; Stress. So much menacing anticipation, it's a solid feature on one of the greatest electronica albums ever released.

20. Hang Me Out To Dry - Cold War Kids

View this video on YouTube

Some pretty catchy and addictive indie rock with a stylish video clip to match.

The late Mehdi Favéris-Essadi, a.k.a Dj Mehdi, absolutely oozed Parisian house cool.

This song has something kind of magical about it. It's that bittersweet sound of nostalgia that will get you every time.

Sweet, colourful and catchy and it goes all the way to 10. The Van She Tech remix is worth a listen too.

It might have been a while since you heard this one. Let it take you back to that time when indie rock ruled the charts.

25. Pussyole (Oldskool) - Dizzee Rascal

Who'd have thought that this list would feature tracks with "Pussy" in the title.

26. Overpowered - Roisin Murphy

Before there was La Roux or Little Boots, there was Roisin Murphy! And she had some fabulous outfits.

27. Hearts on Fire - Cut Copy

View this video on YouTube

youtube.com

Cut Copy have delivered a pretty impressive discography, but Hearts of Fire arguably came during their peak. It's just as much a club track as it is a daytime BBQ track. Basically it's just suitable to play at anytime, anywhere, okay.

28. Kids - MGMT

View this video on YouTube

Another one of those tracks that delivers a solid dose of bittersweet nostalgia, Kids had everyone signing along back in its day. Nobody didn't love this song.

29. Valerie - Mark Ronson feat. Amy Winehouse

View this video on YouTube

youtube.com

The greatest track off Ronson's greatest album (IMO anyway). Nobody can pull off a cover the way that Mark Ronson does and with one of the greatest vocalists we've seen this century, it lives up to everything it should be.

30. Lover - Pnau

2007 was such a massive year for Australian dance music (Muscles, Cut Copy, Midnight Juggernauts, Sneaky Sound System, ....the list goes on), it seems only appropriate to end the list with one of the most successful Australian EDM acts ever with a track from their biggest album ever. Special mentions to Embrace, Wild Strawberries, Baby, Shock To My System, Come Together...god that album was all filler, no killer...picking just one track was near impossible!
