BEST SONGS OF 2010by SeanPlease note: MP3s are only kept online for a short time, and if this entry is from more than a couple of weeks ago, the music probably won't be available to download any more.


I've gotten a copy of the entire "best 100 songs of 2010" in my quest to at least start listening to new (to me) music. So far I am loving this mix.

Standouts include the Titus Andronicus track (#27) that sounds like Guided by Voices sing over a Dinosaur Jr. song from the best era of Dinosaur Jr. I had heard the new Sade album was good but the track included (#96) is really great and making me want the whole record. The list also introduced me to the1shanti, an almost nerdcore rapper doing rhymes about various bits of technology. I also enjoyed the bits of world music making the mix that I certainly would have missed completely (#22, The Good Ones, from Rwanda).
