Top 10 of 2010

I am starting to compose a list for 'Triple J Hottest 100.' Which is a countdown for the 100 best songs of the year by an Australian radio station. I so far only have 6 songs so would like to see everyone elses top 10 lists for the year

Mine so far....

'All of the Lights' Kanye West
'Lights' Interpol
'One life stand' Hot Chip
'Lost in the world /Who will survive in America' Kanye West
'Round and round' Ariel Pinks Haunted Graffiti
'Just be good to green' Professor Green/Lily Allen

Plenty of time to work out my ten before the deadline, but I've listened to very little new music this year so my list would probably be confined to tracks from artists that I previously liked who released new stuff in 2010.

Interpol and Kanye will get a run, as will Brandon Flowers and Fran Healy, but I don't think they'll be included on the master list because JJJ are too good for such artists.

I voted in this the other day...

1. LCD Soundsystem - Home

and my others were

LCD - All I Want, Dance Yrself Clean
Kanye - So Addicted
Paul Dempsey - We'll Never Work In This Town Again
National - Bloodbuzz Ohio
Hot Chip - Take It In
Big Boi - Shine Blockas
Cee-Lo Green - Fuck You
Gorillas - Melancholy Hill
Los Camp! - In Medias Res.

I think this is the biggest poll worldwide... they receive a fuckload of votes.

My ten for the Triple J Hottest 100 isn't quite my actual top 10, but I've always split my votes there between things on their list that actually have a chance of making the final 100, and write-ins that I feel extremely strongly about.

So this is the list I submitted. First six are from Triple J's list, final four are write-ins (and it's unranked):

Alpine - Heartlove
Neon Indian - Deadbeat Summer
Stars - Fixed
Surfer Blood - Anchorage
Toro Y Moi - Blessa
Cloud Control - Ghost Story
Blue Hawaii - Dream Electrixra
Alcest - Percées de Lumière
Agalloch - Ghosts of the Midwinter Fires
Pure Reason Revolution - Black Mourning

My actual top ten would be something like the following, in alphabetical order:

Agalloch: Ghosts of the Midwinter Fires
Alcest: Percées de Lumière or Écailles de Lune (Part I)
Alpine: Heartlove or Villages
Blue Hawaii: Dream Electrixra
Ceremony: Marianne
Crowded House: Saturday Sun
The Depreciation Guild: My Chariot
Orphaned Land: Sapari
The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart: Lost Saint
Pure Reason Revolution: Black Mourning

Not that I'm really settled on a ranking yet. The above needs more Year Of No Light, for instance.

I saw Deadbeat Summer on the list, but it's from last year, right? There were a few things from late last year that I nearly slipped in.

I voted a few days ago so I can't remember exactly what I voted for but I think it was something like this:

1.

Huh, that should've occurred to me. Yeah, Psychic Chasms was an October 2009 album ... though it was re-issued with a bonus disc this year. Was Deadbeat Summer released as a single in 2010? RYM is not informative on this count.

Memoryhouse - To the Lighthouse
Quality pick.

i forgot they had a new album out. haven't really given much thought to them since searching for a former clarity. pretty much gotten over how they were a lot of people's (my own included) favorite whipping boys with the sell-out stick at the time, i might check that out.


saw gabel open for the pogues a year or two ago and enjoyed his set more than i thought i would. "white crosses" actually really impressed me at the time, and i thought him solo acoustic on that song blew anything am! had ever done out of the water. the acoustic band version i found on youtube really didn't do it for me, but like i said that show was around 2 years ago and if i still remember the song enough now to be able to identify it, i must have thought it was pretty damn good. digging "because of the shame" more than i think i should be, though.
