I went with "Yeah!".  Maybe it's because of the local tie-in but it seemed like that song was in heavy rotation for about 2 straight years.

Hey Ya or Crazy in Love, if I'm understanding the question correctly.
There's no deceit in the cauliflower.

Peace up, A-Town down.

But Crazy by Gnarls Barkley should probably also be on that list.
Check out my blog of many topics

I have to go with Hey Ya. When your grandma who lives in South Dakota knows a song by a rap group, it's the biggest hit song. Period.

Though I haven't really heard it in at least 2 years now...

My personal favorite from this list is Crazy in Love.

Hey Ya, but it could have been Umbrella or Poker Face(in fact it should have been poker face, heard that song too many times)

wish it was beautiful day or Lose yourself.
I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

I went with Gold Digger, I recall hearing that one more than any other song on the list when it was really popular, even more than Hey Ya.

How did you come up with this list, Keith? Just songs that came to mind?

I voted Hey Ya as well.

Guys, the correct choice here is "Yeah!" even though it's not a great song. Besides, Miley rules this decade.

¡Keith!

No Gnarls?

And "I Gotta Feeling" is making a strong late push.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.
