To celebrate we countdown the 50 Best Songs of the Decade...so far!
Today we do #50 through #31....
Any song from 2010-2015 is eligible...but not songs from this year. (My stupid list....my rules)
So...without any further ado...
#50 Heaven, The Walkmen (2012)
From what I regard as the greatest album of the decade so far....with several songs that will be appearing....
#49 Unbelievers, Vampire Weekend
Pretentious? Yes....but still an amazing song,
#48 Sing, My Chemical Romance
An incredible song with a great video...at first seemingly funny, but actually very sad.
It ages well....from 2012...
#47 Simple Song, The Shins
A little bit brilliant....a little bit demented...
#46 The Bells, Lowell
It may have been overplayed, but it remains a magnificent song, Powerful and moving.
#45 Someone Like You, Adele
Brandi Carlile....what can you say...
#44 The Things I Regret
What a great song.
#43 Hallelujah, Panic! At The Disco
Hated by many...wrongfully IMO....and this is one of her better songs.
#42 West Coast, Lana Del Rey
#41 Grand Canyon, Timber Timbre
One of the seminal bands of the decade...
#40 Gimmie All Your Love, Alabama Shakes
You know...I fucking hate Coldplay...and yet this is a devastatingly great song
#39 The Scientist, Coldplay
Religion is a hard thing...
#38 Ya Hey, Vampire Weekend
Again...not a fan, but Timberlake's song Mirrors is fantastic and the video is cerebral and moving.
Great, great stuff!!!
#37 Mirrors, Justin Timberlake
Gloriously self-indulgent and sad.
Want to remember what it was like to be teenager...listen to this song.
#36 Youth, Daughter
I love these guys...but in the end this is their great song....
Wistful, sad, operatic.
#35 Miss Atomic Bomb, The Killers
#34 Make You Better - The Decemberists
#33 Countdown, Beyonce....
She was brilliant always.
I don't care what anyone says....I think he is a great host...and this is a great, great, great song...
#32 Fam Jam, Shad
Last one for now....Miguel is an exceptional talent, and this is a mesmerizingly wonderful song
#31 Coffee, Miguel
