  • Shanes Top 100 Of The 2010s [100 - 1]

    So every year I compile a list of my top 100 songs based on how they performed on my personal chart, so now I am able to pile all that together to come up with my ultimate 100 songs of the decade.

    100 BLACK SAINT F/SAM FISCHER - EVERYBODY WANTS YOU

    Year - 2019
    Peak - no.3

    Starting with a song from this year, a dance which blended styles from 20 years earlier, mixing together house and 2-step, the vocal sounded like something that I could have imagined coming from Craig David, Another Level etc.


    99 FRANCESCO GABBANI - OCCIDENTALI'S KARMA

    Year - 2017
    Peak - no.1

    Eurovision songs have made an increasing impact on my chart with 42 songs making my top 100's of the year this decade, though this is the first of just four to make my top 100 of the year. It was an favourite to win the 2017 show for Italy, but yet again Italy fell short on the night after a lacklustre performance from Francesco, it still makes a great pop song though.



    98 MACKLEMORE & RYAN LEWIS F/MARY LAMBERT - SAME LOVE

    Year - 2013
    Peak - no.2

    Macklemore and Ryan Lewis were a regular fixture in my personal chart in 2013, with a string of singles that offered something different in hip hop. Here was a rapper sencding a message of support towards the LGBT community, pretty groundbreaking and the song itself was excellent too, paired with a moving video.


    97 ZARA LARSSON - RUIN MY LIFE

    Year - 2018
    Peak - no.2

    Zara Larsson has had a difficult second era, which some have attributed to this track, but I really loved it and think it began what was to become a much stronger second set of songs. On first listen I thought it was a bit overly repetitive, but eventually it really grew on me and now ranks amongst her best for me..


    96 LMFAO F/GOONROCK & LAUREN BENNET - PARTY ROCK ANTHEM

    Year - 2011
    Peak - no.1

    An iconic video now and a dance I remember trying to copy and drastically failing, kicking people in the shins in nightclubs. Whether you loved them or hated them, there was no denying this had an infectious beat was just pure joy.

    99 FRANCESCO GABBANI - OCCIDENTALI'S KARMA
    this used to be such a huge favourite until that live performance.
    nevertheless, a quirky and catchy song.

        'Ruin My Life' is underrated, I actually think it's one of my favourite Zara songs!

          95 ZARA LARSSON - ALL THE TIME

          Year - 2019
          Peak - no.7

          More from Zara now and this was one I thought was a bit disappointing at first after the first 2 singles from this era, but it really gets stuck in your head, infectious.


          94 TIESTO VS.DIPLO F/BUSTA RHYMES - C'MON (CATCH EM BY SURPRISE)

          Year - 2011
          Peak - no.1

          A big number one on my chart mixing together house and hip hop, gave Tiesto his first number one and started Diplo off with what was going to be a very big decade for him on my chart under multiple guises.


          93 GEORGIA - ABOUT WORK THE DANCEFLOOR

          Year - 2019
          Peak - no.3

          It seems one of the best ways to score a hit on my chart is to be a late bloomer, as this was another one I didn't really get at first, but all of a sudden it just clicked, with its crunchy baseline and almost darkly animated chorus, I still don't know what it means though...


          92 NICKI MINAJ - STARSHIPS

          Year - 2012
          Peak - no.1


          At the height of her success, Nicki's rap routes were long forgotten when she came with this pop banger, which has probably served as her most iconic single.


          91 LOREEN - STATEMENTS

          Year - 2017
          Peak - no.1


          Following her success with Eurovision winner, "Euphoria", when I saw this performance on Melodifestivalen, I thought she was ready to take the crown again, but sadly it was not to be, and some basic crap from Robin Bengtsson unremarkably won. This was moody, dark, angry, powerful and would have really made a STATEMENT at ESC that particular year.

            "Statements" was a powerful entry, but I think Loreen should have waited a year or two because it was right after Jamala's victory.

              Starships was my fave Nicki tune. Tiesto v Diplo was a fantastic mix up which I had forgotten about!

                'All The Time' is great, I really enjoy those slight Daft Punk vibes in the chorus. 'About Work The Dancefloor' is some great Robyn-esque sad pop bop. 'Starships' is a classic, however as we moved towards the end of the decade i've definitely preferred Nicki's more hip-hop moments more.

                  "Occidentali's Karma" is such fun! I know I should love "Same Love", but I'm so over it and that annoying chorus.

                  I didn't like "Party Rock Anthem" at the time, but it's grown on me. It goes off in a club/party setting. "Starships" is good, though it felt like a retread on "Super Bass".

                  The forest was shrinking, but the trees kept voting for the axe, for the axe was clever and convinced the trees that because his handle was made of wood, he was one of them.

                    90 KANYE WEST & FRIENDS - ALL OF THE LIGHTS

                    Year - 2010
                    Peak - no.9

                    There's not enough time in the day to list all of the artists on this track, but with a roster usually only reserved for dismal charity efforts, this really worked, blending the styles of everyone from Rihanna, Elton John, La Roux, Alicia Keys etc.


                    89 ANNE-MARIE - CIAO ADIOS

                    Year - 2017
                    Peak - no.3

                    So pop music is not usually my specialist area, but sometimes a song is just purely pop excellence, and this was just that for me, upbeat, fun, definitely more memorable than most of the rest of her output put together. And a British pop female with a youtube video with over 200m views is pretty impressive.


                    88 AFROJACK & STEVE AOKI - NO BEEF

                    Year - 2011
                    Peak - no.1

                    Afrojack had a string of catchy dance anthems throughout the decade, and this was one of the best for me, his only no.1 out of 5 top 5 hits. F'D UP CAMEL.



                    87 CHASE & STATUS F/DELILAH - TIME

                    Year - 2011
                    Peak - no.1

                    Another act with a run of hits this decade, 5 top 10s in all, this giving them their only no.1, slightly downbeat for Chase & Status, with a gorgeous vocal from Delilah.



                    86 CARLY RAE JEPSEN - CUT TO THE FEELING

                    Year - 2017
                    Peak - no.1

                    Our underrated pop darling, Carly Rae Jepsen, and for me what was her best of the decade. Again, there's always a bit of room for pure happiness in a song and this has that.

                      All Of The Lights, Ciao Adios, Time and Cut To The Feeling are all great songs - I had actually totally forgotten about 'Time'. I wonder what happened to Delilah, I liked a few of her solo songs as well.

                        LMFAO feel like a lifetime ago but Party Rock Anthem was such a banger and I have fond memories of nights out featuring that dance (attempt) same era as C’Mon which was also a massive tune.

                        “About Work The Dancefloor is a song written in response to the clubbing culture I experienced in cities whilst touring,” she explains. “Going out and getting that emotion or sensation from a collective energy in various spaces. It’s that stuff of old school disco, the thrill of the dance floor”

                        That’s Georgia’s explanation but it doesn’t really help does it! I love the song though, pure magic.

                        I can’t bear Starships anymore. Ciao Adios was cute, All Of The Lights an example of Kanye getting it right, and I’d forgotten all about Time and Delilah - I loved that song and her album!

                          "No Beef" was a regular on my gym playlist. Underrated.

                            85 ZARA LARSSON - DON'T WORRY BOUT ME

                            Year - 2019
                            Peak - no.1
                            A third one now from Zara Larsson and her first to top my chart, for some reason this couldn't quite take off in the UK, but I honestly think she has had a flawless era this time round.


                            84 SANDHJA - SING IT AWAY

                            Year - 2016
                            Peak - no.1

                            The second of four Eurovision songs, this didn't make the grand final, after a shaky vocal on the night, but it remains my most played Eurovision song, for pure fun, a great beat, she had great personality too. But it was yet another disappointment for Finland.


                            83 SANDER VAN DOORN FT.MAYAENI - NOTHING INSIDE

                            Year - 2012
                            Peak - no.1

                            By far Sanders biggest hit on my chart, this one sounded like Adele doing a dance anthem I always thought.



                            82 ELENI FOUREIRA - FUEGO

                            Year - 2018
                            Peak - no.1

                            The second highest of my Eurovisions here, this saw Cyprus put in their best effort at finally winning the competition, and Eleni knew how to sell a song, fire effects, and hair flips all around.



                            81 NE-YO - ANOTHER LOVE SONG

                            Year - 2017
                            Peak - no.1

                            I've always said Ne-Yo has one of my favourite voices in music and he has managed to appear in my top 100 of the years lists 11 times this decade, though this is the only one that has done well enough to appear in my top 100 of the decade.

                              Fuego should’ve won really and I really liked that Ne-Yo one.

                                80 JOE STONE F/MONTELL JORDAN - THE PARTY (THIS IS HOW WE DO IT)

                                Year - 2015
                                Peak - no.3

                                Everyone knows I love a basic dance anthem and that's what Joe Stone gave us in 2015 with his take on Montell Jordan's "This is How We Do It", in fact the looped house craze of the mid 00s seemed to be back this decade but rather than looping 80s pop tracks, the new thing was to loop classic R&B hits.



                                79 CIARA - GIMME DAT

                                Year - 2010
                                Peak - no.1

                                Ciara has been one of the most frequent visitors to my yearly top 100 countdowns, with 12 appearances in all, though this is the only one to go as far as making my 100 of the decade. Ciara has continued to deliver now for 15 years and I love her upbeat bops.


                                78 OLIVER $ & JIMI JULES - PUSHING ON

                                Year - 2014
                                Peak - no.1

                                Mixing the music from a Grace Jones track and vocals from a disco song, this became a long running number one on my chart and I felt it was underrated at the time next to some other dance anthems that were topping the UK charts.


                                77 KIKO BUN - SWEETIE

                                Year - 2016
                                Peak - no.1

                                When watching back by top 100 of the year videos, it seems that I have a soft spot for anything that mixes dance music and the sounds of the Caribbean, and Kiko Bun nailed the two sounds together perfectly on what is easily his best song to date.


                                76 PHILIP GEORGE - AFRAID TO LOVE

                                Year - 2015
                                Peak - no.1

                                There is no shortage of dance anthems that have sampled Loleatta Holloway's "Love Sensation" but somehow Philip George made it sound like something new, and it was far more inspired still than his versions of Be Alone No More or My Cherie Amour.

                                  Oh I haven’t heard Pushing On in ages, loved it. Afraid To Love was great, shame it was never pushed. Gimmie Dat is one of Ciara’s best.

                                    "All of the Lights" is a stunner! The featured act who really matters is Rihanna anyway.

                                      75 MIKA - TINY LOVE

                                      Year - 2019
                                      Peak - no.2

                                      It had been a few years since Mika did anything worthy on my chart, but "Tiny Love" became one of my songs of the year last year, with it's unusual structure and better than ever vocals, I love a song that tells a story and this really did.


                                      74 LE YOUTH - R E A L

                                      Year - 2014
                                      Peak - no.1

                                      Le Youth have been at the forefront when it comes to taking a classic R&B anthem into a fresh house track. Taking on Brandy's "I Wanna Be Down", and giving them one of their 12 top 10 hits on my chart between 2012-2019.



                                      73 OG3NE - LIGHTS & SHADOWS

                                      Year - 2017
                                      Peak - no.1

                                      The highest of my 4 Eurovision songs on this list, the Netherlands group, OG3NE were commonly compared to Wilson Philips, but there's no denying their slick, beautiful vocals on what was a stunning song.



                                      72 THE SATURDAYS - WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

                                      Year - 2014
                                      Peak - no.9

                                      I don't really know how this happened, but The Saturdays swan song was a bit of a guilty pleasure for me, perhaps the fact it was less successful means I didn't get bored of it so quickly and it hung around on my chart for an awfully long time. They had 7 charting hits in all this decade, but despite peaking below "Gentleman" and "What About Us?" this one ended up surpassing them both.




                                      71 KATE NASH - DON'T YOU WANT TO SHARE THE GUILT?

                                      Year - 2010
                                      Peak - no.1

                                      An album track now, which was originally a B-Side to Kate's 2008 single "Merry Happy", but later re-imagined into a very special track on her second album, which builds and swells and gets more angry as it goes on, telling the story in a way that only Kate can.

                                          Wouldn’t have expected that Saturdays one to appear, they had loads better.

                                            Out of your top 100 so far, I like "Occidentali's Karma", "Ruin My Life", Party Rock Anthem", "All The Time", "About Work The Dancefloor", "All Of The Lights", "Ciao Adios", "Cut To The Feeling", "Don't Worry Bout Me", "Fuego", "The Party" and "Lights And Shadows"!
                                            Great list so far, can't wait for the rest!

                                              89 ANNE-MARIE - CIAO ADIOS - she's kinda bland for me, but this song bops, love it

                                              85 ZARA LARSSON - DON'T WORRY BOUT ME - catchy

                                              71 KATE NASH - DON'T YOU WANT TO SHARE THE GUILT? - a surprising entry! love this song, truly sounds magical

                                                70 ZERO 7 F/TOM LEONARD - DON'T CALL IT LOVE

                                                Year - 2013
                                                Peak - no.1

                                                Zero 7 have been one of the most consistent acts on my chart since their 2001 debut, "Destiny", though things have been quieter this decade, "Don't Call It Love" gave them their 5th and most recent no.1 on my chart.


                                                69 DEMI LOVATO - TELL ME YOU LOVE ME

                                                Year - 2018
                                                Peak - no.5

                                                From an act that always managed to make my weekly top 50, to an act that never does, Demi Lovato had only had 2 chart entries previously, and neither made any real impact at all, but "Tell Me You Love Me" changed all of that in 2018 when it made my top 5 and spent forever in my weekly chart.


                                                68 AVICII VS.NICKY ROMERO - I COULD BE THE ONE

                                                Year - 2013
                                                Peak - no.1

                                                An infectious riff, a catchy song, that almost techno drop and one of the videos of the decade. This was the track that first pushed Avicii ahead of other dance producers this decade.


                                                67 CATHERINE MCGRATH - TALK OF THIS TOWN

                                                Year - 2017
                                                Peak - no.1

                                                Although country music is not my favourite area, there are always a handful of songs most years that sneak through and do well on my chart, in 2017, out of nowhere it was a girl from Northern Ireland doing Country, Catherine McGrath. I hope there'll be much more to come from her as we go into the next decade.


                                                66 HONEYZ - DEFINITELY SOMETHING

                                                Year - 2015
                                                Peak - no.2

                                                Not a group you'd probably associate with the last decade, or even the one before it, but Honeyz tried to make their comeback in 2015, starting with the release of the Bassmon remix of their comeback single "Definitely Something", which sounded more Hed Kandi than Hed Kandi, the original version was also good, the girls sounded in fine form, but as quick as they were back, they were gone again.

                                                  Very nice! It is yet to be revealed on my countdown but will have a reasonably similar position there.
