TBR’s Best Singles of 2010: Part Two

Time for part two of our Best of 2010 list folks! Hope you enjoyed listening to the first 10 yesterday.

LENA – Satellite

The German winner of this year’s Eurovision might not be the favoured to win the whole thing but her little piece of pop goodness never failed to deliver. Feeling proud of her fake British accent while singing this European hit kinda worked out for her own good. It’s a catchy track that even non-Europeans can absolutely enjoy. And 28 million hits on YouTube? That’s not bad at all.

KANYE WEST feat. PUSHA T – Runaway

Although I have to admit, I hadn’t been able to catch up with Kanye’s full material to date, ‘Runaway’ the 9 minute highly acclaimed track caught me in my first listen. The lyrics are superb and the beat is ‘so-so’ – it can get as much controversy it likes but I will still stand by my decision that I’ll hate Kanye West forever. Although I’m in between when it comes to his music though.

MIKE POSNER – Please Don’t Go

Mike Posner has been under my radar since that swaggery anthem ‘Cooler Than Me’ surfaced earlier this year. I mean he’s absolutely not hard to like. An eyecandy, silky with a lil’ bit husk recording voice and an ample amount of swagger – he’s the next R&B lad who just gives off catchy, radio friendly tunes you’d be most likely to listen in full once it pops out on shuffle. Although his debut album speaks otherwise – Mike deserves another chance. Loads of chances, I must say.

P!NK – Raise Your Glass

P!nk continues to be one of my favourite pop/rock singers of her generation today. Well, I think most of us do like her that much. ‘Raise Your Glass’ is a squeaky piece of pop glory, with all of P!nk’s signature track bits – it’s actually too impossible not to like.

 

THE PRETTY RECKLESS – Make Me Wanna Die

She can be trashy all she wants but heck, she makes good music with those scary looking blokes.

SIA – Clap Your Hands

Like Robyn, Sia remains one of the most underrated pop stars to date. And with ‘Clap Your Hands’ plus the magnificence of her latest LP, ‘We Are Born’ – she doesn’t deserve it.

 

TAIO CRUZ – Dynamite

This just shows that the Brits can do it as well. Plus, it’s a good song – you can’t deny that!

SWEDISH HOUSE MAFIA – One

Okay. You might have guessed by now that I’m a sucker for Dance music. Oh well, you can’t blame me. Tunes like these keeps me alive! And I know you too as well.

TWO DOOR CINEMA CLUB – Something Good Can Work

Maybe you’re wonderin’ what the heck are a Northern Irish indie band doing in this dance-music filled playlist? Oh well, something good can really work in yeah?

RIHANNA feat. DRAKE – What’s My Name?

‘Oh Na Na, What’s My Name?’ – that line has been stuck in my head for quite sometime. I have no idea why most of pop songs today that are big has some big hooks lying around their tracks. Maybe she’s back to the old Rihanna that we used to love that’s why she’s not easy to be liked these days.

CHECK BACK TOMORROW FOR PART THREE!
