    23 Songs From The Early 2000s Only Gays And Woke Straights Know About

    Alternate headline: Do you have taste?

    1. "A Little Bit" by Jessica Simpson

    "With You" really connected with the basic straight population but "A Little Bit" brought about true enlightenment to gays and straights *in the know.*

    2. "Mirror Mirror" by M2M

    Only true intellectuals listened to this legendary NORWEGIAN* duo. They shaped a generation of young homos and smart heteros.

    *I previously thought they were Swedish. I was wrong and the gay mafia attacked in the comments. I'm a pos.

    3. "This Is Me" by Dream

    Average people love "He Loves U Not," the gifted still listen to "This Is Me."

    4. "What Dreams Are Made Of" by Hilary Duff & Isabella

    The "I Will Always Love You" of the early 2000s. Gorgeous, stunning, and the inspiration for A Star Is Born.

    5. Anything by Jennifer Love Hewitt

    "Barenaked" a classic. "How Do I Deal" a classic. JLH is the original indie queen.

    6. "Blowin' Me Up (With Her Love)" by JC Chasez

    Straight people love Justin Timberlake. The gays and smart straights realize JC was always better.

    7. "Halfway Round the World" by A*teens

    An Abba tribute band composed of teens, their minds.

    8. "Rollercoaster" by B*Witched

    "Cest La Vie" is a cute common girl but "Rollercoaster" is that unique gorgeous queen.

    9. "The Itch" by Vitamin C

    As I've always said, Vitamin C died so Pink could live. A true sacrificial lamb to the gay community.

    10. "In My Pocket" by Mandy Moore

    A revolutionary use of the faux hawk. Mandy Moore did that.

    11. "Baby Come On Over" by Samantha Mumba

    A boring person will tell you they loved "Gotta Tell You." People with taste will tell you they still listen to "Baby Come On Over."

    12. "How Do I Feel" by Hoku

    Otherwise known as "the burrito song."

    13. Anything by Emma Bunton post-Spice Girls

    Emma Bunton should have been the Justin Timberlake (in theory, I know he sucks) of the Spice Girls but straight people exist and sometimes they are homophobic. No offense.

    14. "Nothing In This World" by Paris Hilton

    Almost, ALMOST, as good as "Stars Are Blind."

    15. "What It Feels Like For A Girl" by Madonna

    Like Bionic, it was ahead of it's time. Another casualty of fragile masculinity.

    16. "Natural" by S Club 7

    S Club was technically 1/7 gay because I'm pretty sure the blonde one is gay. They're one of us.

    17. "Take Me Away" by Fefe Dobson

    Rock music gays and their woke allies could get behind Miss Fefe.

    18. "Song For The Lonely" by Cher

    Just as gorgeous as "Believe."

    19. "Nobody Wants To Be Lonely" by Christina Aguilera and Ricky Martin

    This song is inherently 50% homosexual (because Ricky Martin is gay).

    20. The original "I'm Real" and "Ain't It Funny" by Jennifer Lopez

    Heteros know the remixes. Gays and woke straights know the originals (but also the remixes.)

    21. "Over" by Lindsay Lohan

    Made grunge cool and relevant again for a brief period in the early 2000s.

    22. "Slow" by Kylie Minogue

    I am not one for conspiracy theories but I swear there was some straight conspiracy against Kylie Minogue. There is no reason she shouldn't have like 25 #1 American hits.

    23. "Overprotected" by Britney Spears

    Forget "Toxic," "Overprotected" is her best song and that's that...on that.

    And here's a playlist:
