Best Singles Of 2010 - Honourable Mentions

So it's almost March and I still haven't posted my best singles of 2010. Whoops. The good news is that I'm almost finished. With any luck I'll have it done by the end of next week but until then here are the songs that just missed the cut. It killed me to ditch some of these stunning classics but, in retrospect, 2010 was an amazing year for pop music - well, at least for singles - and a track had to be nothing less than a genre defining masterpiece to make my countdown. But that's no slight against the runners up. I love all 157 of these anthems and highly recommend adding them to your collection. Stay tuned for the 100 best singles of 2010 VERY SOON!

Props for including Amanda Jensen and Marit Larsen. :)

CRUSHED at We Can Party missed the cut!

The Prophet said...

All you did was literally just list every single song that you liked in 2010 LOL

Diva Incarnate said...

Ego was 2009 boo!

Can't wait for the list - I want my jaw to drop at the trash:)

Alex said...

So much music!! Question however... was there actually a physical retail released Lolene single or was that a promo for Sexy People instead?

All in all, awesome, and I eagerly await seeing what did make the cut.

Seth said...

I'm deeply gutted that Lucero, Goldfrapp and the Queen Of Charts herself, Susan Boyle didn't made thec cut to the best 100. :(

Mike said...

Jacques - These are not just songs I liked in 2010. That list would have included about 500 songs! These all made my short list for top 100.

Alex - to the best of my knowledge Sexy People wasn't officially released. That's a promo CD in the picture.

Michael said...

Just saw that Jenny Berggren's "Here I Am" made the cut - wondering if you've got thoughts on the rest of her smash solo debut (#48 on the Swedish charts).

Also, her tragically ignored effort at the Danish eurovision finals:

I'm telling you, she's got all the qualities to be a mainstay on this blog...
