Josh’s Top 10 Favorite Songs of 2010

10. Derrezed – Daft Punk

When it was announced that Daft Punk was handling the Tron: Legacy soundtrack, people seemed to assume that we’d be getting a movie set to a Daft Punk album. Unsurprising (but still disappointingly) enough, the album was for the most part typical film soundtrack affair… slow, uneventful music that isn’t really enjoyable outside of the context of the movie. With one notable exception – “Derrezed.” This is the type of song that you’d expect to hear on a typical Daft Punk album. You know, the kind of album we all wanted this one to be.

9. Party Poison – My Chemical Romance

It sure took them long enough, but My Chemical Romance came out with another album this year. It’s got a much more lighthearted feel than their previous ones, and in this neat little track you can see that even without all the eyeliner and self-pity My Chemical Romance still knows how to rock.

8. ShowStopper -TobyMac

Even with some cringe-inducing lyrics, this song is good enough to trick anyone into listening to Christian Pop/Rap. There’s enough sounds thrown into this squeaky clean production that you’ll still be discovering new layers dozens of listens in.

7. Cooler Than Me – Mike Posner

Pop radio sucked more than usual in 2010, but Mike Posner restored my faith in humanity with “Cooler Than Me.” It’s a song I can equally imagine chilling out to or clubbing to. Because, you know, I do a lot of clubbing. On another note, that synth solo at the end is just… perfect.

6. The Catalyst – Linkin Park

Now here’s a song that everyone needed to listen to a few times before they realized they kind of liked the new direction Linkin Park is headed in. With a lovably awkward melody that gets better the more times you hear it and a climax where every element of the song fits perfectly together, “The Catalyst” is a rewarding listen to those with an open mind.

5. Sick of You – Cake

This musical middle finger is delicious as……… pie.

4. Watercolour – Pendulum

Pendulum is a group that can never decide on what kind of band they want to be. Drum ‘n bass? Alternative rock? Electronica? No matter which they dabble in, they always end up with excellence.

3. Telephone – Pomplamoose

Lady Gaga may have sung it first, but indie duo Pomplamoose took “Telephone” and made it truly great. After hearing this version, it’s hard to imagine that it was ever intended to be played differently.

2. Animal Rights – Deadmau5

On this track off his album 4 x 4 = 12, Deadmau5 proves that his music making abilities are much better than his math skills. “Animal Rights” is a delicious feast for the ears cooked with a scoop of house, a touch of dubstep, and a heaping dose of funky lead line.

1. WEEKENDS!!! – Skrillex (feat. Sirah)

The song that got me into electronic music with a kick drum that’s loud and a bass that’s wobbly. If you’ve yet to experience a drop into a crazy Skrillex breakdown, you’ve been missing out, my friend. I’ve been humming this song ever since I first heard it – and I’m not humming the vocal part either. I don’t know how to describe the sounds that start at 1:10… all I know is that they’re catchy as any good pop song and impossible not to nod your head to.
