top songs of 2010 so far…

6 Apr

Some of these songs were released this year, and some not. For me, these have been my newest discoveries and newest obsessions. Good music is addictive, and I haven’t been able to stop listening to these and probably won’t stop for a long time to come. Looking over this list I see that most of them are upbeat fast songs that keep me dancing. It has been exactly what 2010 has needed, that’s for sure…

1. Wake Up by Arcade Fire

(After hearing this on the Where The Wild Things Are trailer, I fell in love with this song. I had heard it before, but hadn’t really paid it much attention)

2. Flashing Red Light Means Go by The Boxer Rebellion

(First song I heard of there’s, and after downloading the album… one of the few I like. A song called  Forces ruined it for me. The chorus sings “They’re forces, dark forces, all around“. At first I thought it was a really cheesy song about spiritual warfare or something… come to find out its about an affair, but it totally turned me off to their music the first time I heard it. Dumbest song I’ve heard in awhile. But Flashing Red Light Means Go is a great song…)

3. That Year by Brandie Carlile

(This song reminds me of high school, which of course is what she was going for. Its a sweet and pretty song)

4. Two Weeks by Grizzly Bear

(I love this song because its very harmonious and haunting in it’s own way. Easy to listen to over and over again)

5. Stole My Heart by Little & Ashley

(This is the song from the second Amazon Kindle commercial. Very simple lyrics, very cute song)

6. Passing On by The New Frontiers

(Definitely not a new song to me, but I had a moment listening to it last month that made me really love this song all over again)

7. Lasso by Phoenix

(If I were listing based on which one has been listened to most, it would be this one. Love the beats, love the melody, love everything about it)

8. Clementine by Sarah Jaffe

(Her new album is brilliant. And for some reason… not even sure if I could put into words why…. this is the song I listen to most often)

9. Horchata by Vampire Weekend

(This song grows on you. At first I wasn’t sure what to think of it… then I couldn’t get enough of it. It can make me happy no matter what kind of a mood I’m in)
