The conclusion of my favorite tracks of 2010, plus two mixtapes with all 37 songs.
5. Mumford & Sons – Little Lion Man
Interesting fact about this song, Laura sings it without an accent and I sing it with a piss-poor Irish accent. If you haven’t sang this song at least once this year (with or without an accent), whats wrong with you?
4. Arcade Fire – We Used To Wait
One of the best online experiences/music videos I’ve witnessed and also one of the best songs of the year. The sinister synths on the hook were a great touch to echo Win Butler’s social musings.
3. Janelle Monae – Cold War
I have no idea what “war” Janelle is fighting for, but I’d gladly join if the marching music sounded like this. One of the many tracks from The ArchAndroid that showcases her charisma and engaging voice.
2. Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeroes – Home
Classic call and response record that sounds like ’60s pop. Technically, it came out in 2009, but its probably one of the songs I listened to most this year. Deal with it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3HNY0rx2fw4
1. Local Natives – Airplanes
One of many great songs by these guys, but “Airplanes” was the track I listened to on repeat. The hearfelt track about missing the chance to get to know a deceased grandparent is enough to bring some tears. And one I can definitely relate to.
