Review of 2010 Part 3: Top 50 songs – 20-11

And so we resume our countdown of the finest aural pleasures of the last 12 months. Time to break into the Top 20:

20 The Drums – Best Friend
The New Yorkers in love with New Order.

19 Antony & The Johnsons Feat. Bjork – Fletta
Like snow on Christmas Eve Part 1.

18 Kelis – Acapella
Pounding and fierce. You definitely couldn’t afford her tuition fees now.

17 Arcade Fire – Ready To Start
Finding a balance between the youthful energy of Funeral and the bombast of Neon Bible.

16 Perfume Genius – Mr Peterson
Proof that Joy Division truly can change your life forever. In a really twisted way.

15 Frankie & The Heartstrings – Tender
The greatest pop song ever to namecheck Mike Leigh’s Naked. Fact.

14 LCD Soundsystem – I Can Change
My friend Greg describes the sound of this as “Yazoo meets Flock of Seagulls”. I can’t improve on that description, so I won’t try.

13 Everything Everything – MY KZ UR BF
In which Trapped in the Closet meets Threads. They did a new video when it was re-released this year, but I prefer the old one, so here it is with the new one. So you can enjoy this song TWICE.

12 Robyn – Jag Vet En Dejlig Rosa
Like snow on Christmas Eve Part 2.

11 M.I.A. – XXXO
The only thing more pounding and fierce than Kelis. I can only apologise for the ad at the beginning.

Nearly there – but I’m going to keep you hanging on to find out who’s in the Top 10 and who’s this year’s Number 1. Come back tomorrow for the Christmas unwrapping.
