I’m a huge geek when it comes to end of the year lists, I love ’em! Here are my own Top 5 lists for albums, songs and TV shows. They are not in any particular order nor did they necessarily come out this year, it’s just a few of my favorites I discovered in 2010.
Top 5 Albums:
- Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros with Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. Favorite Track: “Home”
- The Black Keys with Brothers. Favorite Track: “Sinister Kid”
- The Arcade Fire with The Suburbs. Favorite Track: “We Used To Wait”
- Avi Buffalo with Avi Buffalo. Favorite Track: ” What’s It In For?”
- Mumford & Sons with Sign No More. Favorite Track: “The Cave”
Top 5 Songs:
- “Rill Rill” by Sleigh Bells on Treats
- “Islands” by XX on XX
- “Help I’m Alive” by Metric on Fantasies
- “This Too Shall Pass” by OK Go on Of the Blue Colour of the Sky
- “Dog Days Are Over” by Florence + The Machine on Lungs.
(I’m a little embarrassed by the last two, but with everything I’ve been through this year, they just kind of inspire me.)
Top 5 TV Shows:
- Modern Family
- Arrested Development (defiantly not from 2010 but I watched the whole series this year)
- 30 Rock
In closing, here’s a fun little ditty that deserves an honorable mention.
