"Yamaha" is definitely the best "track" of the year. I mean, come on. I've enjoyed a few songs more, and I've played a few plenty more times. But on a list like this, which is trying to approximate 2010, that track's where it's at. The song's fucking incredible. It turns vapid semi-stupidity into life-affirming transcendence. The song is a classic. I am being less sarcastic than you can possibly imagine.

To be fair, I've been pretty detached from the music world at large for a couple years now, only really just trying to sink my teeth back into the medium the past couple months. So yeah, maybe that's more a real world, or certainly at least a more casual indication.

You're only human. Can't really be helped, as such.

Seriously, though, "Still got your name tattooed on my back," is the apex of pop music in the year 2010.

It is everything that, and perhaps more than, a piece of popular music should be. Simultaneously of the moment and hearkening back to something of the past; both confoundingly insular and near-universal; and equal parts distant longing and pure, untempered joy. That's just what pop music is supposed to do, damn it!

I love "Rocket" by Goldfrapp for those same reasons. Those two songs together give me such a rush of joy. I do in fact frequently listen to them back to back.

I never thought that he would be able to top the Love vs. Money duo, but he absolutely did. Yamaha is more exhilarating and more compact than those two tracks.

The-Dream is sort of frustratingly inconsistent though:

YouTube - The Dream ft Lil' Jon - Let Me See That Booty.

I didn't outright love that album or anything, but those three songs were the absolute pinnacle of pop awesome for me this year.

Yeah, I'm not totally feeling any of the albums. Some unstoppable songs, but that's about all I could get from them. This one was more inconsistent than the others, I thought.

I could probably dig up the posts where I was commenting on how much I was not enjoying the album and then my shock when those three songs came out of nowhere. It was an incredibly pleasant surprise. Then the album went right back to being....not so great.

Anybody heard that Electrik Red album on which he worked quite extensively, last year?



I didn't get that much out of it, but The-Dream fans should definitely give it a go.
