The Definitive Best Songs of 2010

These are the best songs of 2010. This is a stone cold fact that cannot be disputed. If you have a different opinion, too bad, you're completely wrong.  Update your playlists accordingly.

It was a good year because there was a new Broken Social Scene album. I haven't seen it, but I heard This Movie is Broken wasn't that good - probably because it didn't have Joe Dick in it. This is the best song on Forgiveness Rock Record.

Jack White continues his descent into being the weirder younger brother of Johnny Depp, but damn this song is good.

They announced that they are on hiatus, which is code for the lead singer and the guitar player hate each other. Good album to go out on though.

If you someone said to you that guys from REM and guys from Snow Patrol joined forces, you would start running in the other direction. Which would be too bad, because this is a good song. Get On The Road is an honourable mention for 2010.

I found this song through one of those free song a day podcasts. Most of the songs are crap, but this is one isn't.

This album was supposed to deliver us all from the mediocrity of mainstream and the piousness of alternative rock, to make right what was wrong. It didn't do any of that, but it still had some good songs. Soft In The Center gets an honourable mention.

This song didn't come out in 2010, but screw you, it's my list. What, there are rules to this kind of thing? Listened to this one a lot early last year. Much better song than Sweet Disposition.

He's Canadian, but don't hold that against him. Robots got a lot of attention this year, but if you like that song better than this one, than you're wrong. If you think so, take your ipod and dunk it in a glass of tepid Four Loko and then throw it off the roof into an empty swimming pool.

Wicked song from a wicked band that deserves more recognition.

Another wicked song that puts the bass in your face.

Honourable Mentions:

Heading For Nowhere - Jets Overhead

Coffee Girl - The Tragically Hip

The Mama Papa - Plants and Animals

The High Road - Broken Bells

Blood's Too Rich - Luke Doucet

Swim Until You Can't See Land - Frightened Rabbit

Underdog - e-dubble

A Crime - Sharon Van Etten
