Ah, 2001. It's not just the name of Stanley Kubrick's space epic. It was the first year of the 21st century, a year of...so much. It was the year I got my first cell phone, the year I lived abroad in London and fell deeper in love with all things British, and the year that saw one sunny September morning change the lives of every American forever.
But not to be forgotten, it was the last innocent era of pop music. 2001 was the year that introduced us to new adjectives ("Bootylicious"), new artists (Hey, Craig David), and newfound respect for Pink (Missundaztood, anyone?). Here are the 30+ tracks that made my year (gulp) twenty years ago.
