2010 musical list. forgot to post.

forgot to post this last year:

the following is a list of my favourite songs from 2010 in no particular order. please note that these are just songs that i loved the most in 2010 - they were not all released in 2010.

artist - song


lcd soundsystem - home
once the buildup in this song reaches its climax, i am moving in embarrassing ways on the elliptical (as pointed out by my boyfriend).


forest city lovers - minneapolis
most "sung in the shower" song of the year.

hooded fang - almost done
just love the harmonizing in this tune - deep and soothing meets cotton candy sweetness.

born ruffians - oh man
something about the flowing rhythm of the guitars against luke lalonde's whines just sounds soooo good. plus they are amazing live.

ra ra riot - too too fast
80's inspired intro and the round-like sing-talk just does it for me.

broken social scene - sweetest kill
i could not stop playing this song for about 2 weeks - so hauntingly beautiful.

arthur and yu - the ghost of old bull lee
"don't need to be part of a scene to cause a scene, so cause a scene". best line ever. plus these guys are a throw back to the velvet underground. i am sold.

wintersleep - new inheritors
sometimes i overestimate my worth.

best coast - i want to
"i want to, go back to, the first time, the first place". enough said.

the dutchess and the duke - let it die
never has a song about abortion sounded so good.

 surfer blood - anchorage
"now i hear you're hanging out, with electric guitars no doubt".

sharon jones and the dap kings - better things
this song makes me want to gather all my favourite girlfriends together for some dancing and man-bashing.

the acorn - misplaced

everything all the time - lazy days
one of the best songs to bike to on a spring day.

arcade fire - modern man
i just really like this song.

the stars - fixed
i just can't get enough of amy millan's sugary sweet voice - it holds my heart.

gord downie & the country of miracles - moon over glenora
love gord and julie's harmonizing. so pleasing to the ears.

band of horses - nw apt.
just a great uplifting song. aaaaand huge crush on ben.

the black keys - everlasting light
bluesy goodness. you can be my everlasting light anytime dan. anytime.

mark ronson and the business intl - the bike song
great song, even better video.

royal city - under a hollow tree
more banjo, we need more banjo.

megafaun - the longest day
i think this has to be one of the prettiest songs i have ever heard. best concert of the year hands down - sitting on the floor of the horseshoe (gross i know, but stay with me) with complete strangers listening to them play this song gave me the shivers. as if that is not good enough, my friend calan and i had the privilege to play harmonica with the band!

dirty projectors - useful chamber
i don't know how to describe my affection for this song because i don't really know, or really even care, what the song is about.

fanfarlo - finish line
awesomely nerdy.

phoenix - 1901
i just can't get enough of this son - it makes me want to dance in the middle of the street like a maniac or run miles my body can't run.

oh no! on my! - lisa make love
i will always remember this song from my 30th b-day, played live by my awesome friends.

frightened rabbit - old old fashioned

kayne west - gold digger
makes everyday routine somewhat entertaining (walking to the job you hate, walking through the dufferin mall, folding laundry at the weirdo laundromat across the street).

Everlasting light is my favourite song on that album. I feel about Patrick that you do about Dan...
