48. Coldplay, "the Scientist" (2002)

Forgive the second mention of Coldplay, but they were an essential part of the early '00s and even if you hate them, you have to give props to the lyrical poetry. "Tell me you love me/ come back and haunt me" remains, for me at least, one of the most haunting (appropriately) lines I've ever heard.
