These are the top 10 new songs that got stuck in my head in 2010. I figure that makes 'em the best.
#10 Fuck You - Cee-Lo Green - The Lady Killer I suspect everyone's heard this brazen song by now, but if now, check it out.
#9 Home - Villagers - Becoming A Jackal I was very charmed by hearing this young singer-songwriter perform "Home" live.
#8 Ambling Alp - Yeasayer - Odd Blood This track is the archetype of infectious young indie rock. Its great but after a while it will drive you mad.
#7 Best Friend - The Drums - The Drums This one is for Jared. Hard not to love this band if you like English pop beach rock that sounds like it was made in 1983.
#6 I Don't Know What To Say - The Magnetic Fields - Realism Only the Magnetic Fields can make lines like "I could say I want you, that would be a bore, maybe in a font you haven't seen before" and "I could try and shove you off the nearest cliff..." "I could say sound so sincerely beautiful.
#5 Alley Cats - Hot Chip - One Life Stand Great song from a great album.
#4 Runaway - Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy "Let's give a toast to the douche-bags"
#3 I Can Change - LCD Sound System - This Is Happening "Drunk Girls" may have been a hella good single, but I prefer LCD's more beautiful sensitive songs like this lovely one.
#2 Cave-O-Sapien - Wolf Parade - Expo 86 This song may be pure nonsense but my god, it is so damn fun! ("I had a vision, of a Gorilla, he was a killer, a killer...")
#1: Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell - Das Racist's - Shut Up Dude! Mixtape
I don't see you here dog?!
