10Twin Shadow, “Golden Light”Xylophone Prince.
09Llana del Rey, “Video Games”Haters gonna hate on the album, but this song is pure bliss.
08Spiritualized, “Hey Jane”Psych-brit pop retro resurgence. I’m ready. Paging Kula Shaker?
07Japandroids, “The House That Heaven Built”I refuse to name that other (great) single from this album. Since, you know, it came out in 2010.
06Miguel, “Gravity”The second best pop abum of the year (see #1).
05Usher, “Climax”Ugh. I hate this song. But it’s a pop marvel.
04BJ the Chicago Kid ft Kendrick Lamar – “His Pain II”The first three minutes of this song are the best three minutes of the year; the rest… not so much.
03Lower Dens, “Brains”I am an all time sucker for motorik. Best use since the Flaming Lips’ last LP. This track takes my on a voyage I don’t want to return from.
02Major Lazer, “Get Free”Where did this come from? Can whatever planet sent this send more?
01Jessie Ware, “110%”I’ll keep the dancefloor warm is the perfect lyric for young modern longing. I love this fucking song.
