100 Songs of the Decade

I’m fairly confident I’m ~dancing to one of the songs on the list here

What are we even calling this decade? The tens? The teens? In 2009 some madmen were floating “the tenners” but… I mean that was never a thing, right?

Whatever it is, it’ll soon be over – and to mark it, I’ll be doing the only two things I can do: be extra, and make a list.

One song a day for the last 100 days of the year, I’ll write about my favourite singles from January 2010 to the present. They’re in no particular order, except the Top 10 – which will (obviously) come in late December.

Click through the list below for “thorough” “analyses” of the songs covered so far. It’s updating daily, so check back, yeah?

You can follow the rolling playlist on Spotify here.

It’s a mixture of tracks that I think are Factually The Best, and tracks that have just come to have ~personal significance~ to me over the years. If, for example, a critically-lauded masterpiece is snubbed in favour of a semi-naff “club” “anthem” that I heard a lot in the summer of ’13, I make NO APOLOGIES.

So – in the words of The Saturdays on their final single What Are You Waiting For? – what are you waiting for?
