#9 – Coldplay – “Clocks” – (2002)

I think we can all agree that Coldplay is one of the biggest bands (if not the biggest band) of the 2000s (and going). I can’t believe this song is 11 years old. It has some of the catchiest and melodious piano hooks ever. A Rush of Blood to the Head is among the greatest albums of the decade and this is the best song on the album. It’s one of Coldplay’s signature songs – mostly because of that piano hook. It wasn’t a huge hit (never hit #1 anywhere) but it did win a Grammy for Record of the Year.
