2010: 123 of my favorite songs, 45 covers (+ 10 awful covers), 30 favorite albums,…


23 déc. 2010, 2h48m

2010 was an undeniably great year for music. There was the birth of \\/\\/|†©|•| |•|Ωµ§∑ genre (oh, having troubles reading that? No worries, that just means you're not cool enough for the Wi†ch House standards. Get on the b∆ndw∆gon, all you non-▼ n00bz). Nicki Minaj fiiinally got recognition she rightfully deserves; after all, she IS the best female MC, not to mention the fact that she's, just, like, out there, with that in-your-face style, and that 15 year old, gay, Brazillian boys with their shirtless pics as their Last.fm avatars cream on her fashion sense and her general wackiness. Then, there was Ke$ha's rise to fame and her claiming the top spot on Last.fm's Best of 2010 list. I just love that dirty ol' poetic $lut.
Now, on a serious note, this was genuinely a very, very good year for music in general. Loads of great albums, some brilliant new artists emerged, some utterly amazing covers and songs, and what more could an average music lover ask for?
Without further ado, I present to you, the list of best my favorite albums/EPs/covers/remixes/music videos etc. I really wanted to write about each and every single one of my entries, but I haven't had the time (ΛZʎʎʎ x ∞).

Oh, and a comment or two would be nice.

Kendal Johansson's cover of "Blue Moon" is easily one of my favorite cover songs of all time, although I'm not that big of a fan of the original version // Miike Snow is a band that I don't like, at all. Same goes for La Roux, but, this cover is utterly brilliant, and kudos to Miike Snow. Now start making better music.

■■■ This is a really, really good album which I'll get back to listening to times and times again.
■■ Could've been better, could've been worse. Has less than six good songs, more than two.
■ Meh. Has one or two good songs, and hasn't made any impression on me whatsoever.
