This is a much different list than My Favorite Albums of 2010. That list contains a lot of my favorite songs of 2010, but this is list is made up of songs I love regardless of the what the album sounds like. Also, I didn’t wanna repeat the YouTube clips I posted on the Albums list blog post.
Eminem ft Rihanna, “Love the Way You Lie”
This video has been viewed 230 MILLION times on YouTube. 230. MILLION. Times. Wow. I don’t care what anyone says, I love this goddamn song. I got goosebumps when I just listened to it again. Cameos from Megan Fox and Charlie from Lost.
MGMT, “I Found a Whistle”
Congratulations disappointed pretty much everyone that listens to music, but I really really love this track, and it almost completely makes up for what I don’t like about the album.
Katy Perry, “California Gurls”
Katy Perry: super hot in this video. This song has “a good beat.” Girrrrl, I love a good dance tune!
Sleigh Bells, “Infinity Guitars”
Sean Powell turned me on the them. Weird. Awesome. Weirdly awesome.
Eminem, “Not Afraid”
Eminem is pretty much the best there is, at everything he does. These tunes just grab you, whether you want them to or not.
Wavves, “Post Acid”
Cool and noisy. A great album as well. Interested to eventually see them live.
Big Boi ft Cutty, “Shutterbugg”
Big Boi is still making hot records.
The Dead Weather, “Hustle and Cuss”
This album sounds amazing, the tunes overall don’t translate that well live (they can’t recreate the sonic range of the album live), but this one cuts through.
Kanye West ft Pusha T “Runaway”
I haven’t gone apeshit over the Kanye record like everyone else, but I like this cut.
Broken Bells, “The High Road”
This album is really good. Got into it way after the record came out. I like this track a lot better than “The Ghost Inside” (the one with the video with Christina Hendricks in it). James Mercer is one of my faves.
Katy Perry, “Teenage Dream”
Another solid as fuck pop anthem. Seriously, I don’t care what anyone says, love this tune. Plus she’s a doll!
Cee-Lo Green, “FUCK YOU”
One of the greatest songs ever written. One of the greatest performances by one of the greatest performers.
B.o.B. ft Haley Williams from Paramore, “Airplanes”
I actually love Paramore, mostly cuz of Haley. This chorus was in my head for about 2 months straight when I first heard it.
Matt and Kim, “Cameras”
This is by far their best record. Their Times Square nude video thing for that other whatever song was stupid and way-over-the-top hipster. This tune is great.
