Best Songs of 2010

Here’s my list of the Top 50 best songs of 2010. I was going to do a write-up for each track but decided not to because I’d either write a lot about each song that would take too much time or come up with a short thought but then I felt it would be half-assing it so I’ll leave you with just the list.
I feel that there’s a good mix of songs on here but for the most part, my ears were dominated by pop music this year. Lady GaGa, Robyn, Katy Perry, with a few slightly older favourites Amy MacDonald, Sarah Harmer, Brandi Carlile and some rap from Eminem, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Nicki Minaj. The songs I chose based on how often I listened to them, how much I liked them, how good I think the song actually is based on the recording, lyrics and music, and whether the song moved me or otherwise had sentimental value.
