2. “My Hero” (The Colour and the Shape, 1997)
1. “Everlong” (The Colour and the Shape, 1997)

comment: Agree with the top song. For me, and probably David Letterman, one of the least cheesiest modern love songs. "All My Life" at No. 37 is way too low and "Big Me", while a big pop song, is ranked way too high. The rest of my personal faves: "Best of You", "The Pretender", "I'll Stick Around", and especially "Aurora", are in the top 20.

My 2 personal favorites, Good Grief and Hey, Johnny Park, are not even in the top 50 :(
Which is a shame because a lot of the other I love (My Hero, Everlong, Low, The Pretende...) are high ranked.
Never understood the appeal for Big Me either though, even as a big fan of their first 2 albums.

I think the disrespect for Wasting Light is the worst part of this list. Songs like "Bridge Burning" and "Arlandria" are among my favorite Foo tracks. And "Wheels" in the top 50 is undeserved.
Album of the Year: Kendrick Lamar - DAMN.
Song of the Year: Frank Ocean - Chanel
