The 50 Best Songs of the Decade...So Far -- The Top Ten!

Happy Holiday Long Weekend!

To celebrate we continue our countdown of the 50 Best Songs of the far!

Today we do the Top Ten! For songs  #30 through #11 click here and for Songs 50-31 click here!

Any song from 2010-2015 is eligible...but not songs from this year. (My stupid rules)

So...without any further ado...

#10 Glory, Common & John Legend

From Vampire Weekend's masterpiece album...

#9 Step, Vampire Weekend.

From the marvelous Glen this guy....

#8 Her Mercy

#7 From Eden, Hozier

I love everything about this song and its stunning video. Guaranteed to make you feel better about the world for a few minutes at least!

#6 Sunday Candy, Chance the Rapper & Donnie Trumpet & the Social Experiment

Never was really fan of these guys, but this is a strikingly powerful and moving meditation on death.

#5 Brendan's Death Song, Red Hot Chili Peppers

This song just kicks ass...from the great folks of Alabama Shakes...
#4 Hold On, Alabama Shakes

A song of great power, reflection and sadness.

#3 Afterlife, Arcade Fire

A devastating, disturbing and exceptionally powerful song.

#2 The Body Electric, Hurray for the Riff Raff

What can you say about this one? It is like 3 songs in 1, it is intense and wild, a genuine work of art.

Absolutely love everything about it. Just amazing.

#1 Q.U.E.E.N. feat. Erykah Badu, Janelle Monáe
