Top 10 Songs of 2010 (So Far): Glenn’s Edition

(pondering what music to put in my top 10)

In the glorious year of 2010 I haven’t quite been able to seek out as much new music as I would like. I hope that no one is disappointed by the well-known nature of my picks. Matt and Sean do a way better job of finding new stuff. But what the hell, I never had a problem giving my opinion about music. So here are my favorite songs, so far, not really in any order.

1.

White Antelope – “False Knight on the Road”

To tell the truth, I don’t know if this came out in 2010 or not, but I love it and it fits perfectly with my PNW lifestyle these days.

Damien Jurado – “Arkansas”

A little more upbeat than normal, but brings a new vibe with the same old Seattle sound.

3.

The National – “Runaway”

Same National, with soothing sorrow leading into crescendos. These guys are fantastic

4.

Mos Dub – Johnny Too Beef

Who can ask for more than Mos mixed with Bob Marley. This is an entire CD of smooth mash ups of Mos and Marley songs.

Damien Marley and Nas ft K’naan – “Africa Must Wake Up”

High Profile collaboration. I like both these guys and they have a good reggae/dancehall/hip-hop combination. The hook to this song is so catchy.

6.

Four Tet – She Just Likes to Fight

Four Tet makes music that is perfect for putting on headphones and walking through NYC. It’s surreal.

7.

Jonsi – Go Do

The Sigur Ros lead singer strays just enough from his band to make it different, but still keeps a lot of the good things. More accessible for many people.

8.

The Black Keys – Everlasting Light

Even though The Black Keys are huge now, they will always hold a special place with me. I was with them from the beginning and can’t get enough of their sound. This song adds a little funk.

9.

Hot Chip – I Feel Better

Hot Chip are just fun. I got turned onto this song when Matt sent out the video (definitely check it out). I have been a Hot Chip fan for a while and keep being impressed by how much they can change their sound.

Junip – Rope and Summit

Anything Jose Gonzalez does is fine with me. He has a unique sound that is present in this song as well. Junip’s other two EPs are also great. There is a free EP download at their site.

    you may not have the best tastes in sports teams, burgers, or home decorations, but musically, sir, you run with the best of them.
