My Favourite 2010 Songs

1. Moto Boy – The Heart Is A Rebel: OK, I still love the Smiths…

2. Patrick Wolf – Time Of My Life

3. The Indelicates – Savages: A bit pretentious? Perhaps, but who cares? How many modern artists write lyrics like these:

But we are ash, we are books
Coffee stained and overlooked
We are ornamental swords
Forged for the peace after the war
And the world has no need
Of the songs that we sang
We are savages, you and I
And we will hang, hang, hang

4. Chapel Club – Surfacing: 80’s is back. Wait a minute! It never went away! Thank BOD for that!

5. jj – My Life: It might be a cover, but it’s excellent.

6. Hot Chip – I Feel Better: Extra points for the video.

7. LCD Soundsystem – I Can Change

8. Belle & Sebastian – I Want The World To Stop

9. Vampire Weekend – Cousins

10. Caribou – Odessa

11. Club 8- Dancing With the Mentally Ill

12. The Drums – Best Friend

13. The Knife – Ebb Tide Explorer

14. The National – Bloodbuzz Ohio

15. Gorillaz – Glitter Freeze

16. Villagers – Becoming A Jackal: “I was a dreamer, staring at windows…”

17. The Divine Comedy – At The Indie Disco: Yes… That’s how it used to be…

We’ve got a table in the corner that is always ours
Under the poster of Morrissey with a bunch of flowers
We drink and talk about stupid stuff
Then hit the floor for Tainted love
You know I just can’t get enough
At the indie disco, the indie disco, at the indie disco yeah
Give us some Pixies and some Roses and some Valentines
Give us some Blur, and some Cure, and some Wannadies

17. Best Coast – When I’m With You

18. Crystal Castles – Celestica: That should have been in the top 10…

19. Bleu – B.O.S.T.O.N.: No studio version on youtube..

20. Marina And The Diamonds – Hollywood

– extra: Morrissey – Oh Phoney – from the remastered reissue of Bona Drag…

Who can make Hitler
seem like a bus conductor?
You do…
