    Why you're lookin' like that
    I'm burning like fire
    I wanna be higher



    10 Inna - Amazing



    Sensual, summery romanian sounds. I never was quite head over heels for this song, the fact that I still play it regularly though, ensured a high placing on this list.

      All of my summers
      I will wait for you to come



      09 Nicko - Last summer




      Copying the romanian sound, this is Nicko, the same guy as #13 with his international moniker. This song was practically everywhere last summer, so the two available options were either to hate it or to love it. Guess what I did.

        And while our blood's still young
        It's so young
        It runs
        And we won't stop until it's over
        Won't stop to surrender



        08 The Temper trap - Sweet disposition




        I remember watching (500) days of Summer sometime in 2009 and downloading the soundtrack immediately afterwards, solely to find this particular song, but if the radio hadn't picked it up in 2010, I would't have ended up liking it so much. Funnily, I haven't seen the video for it yet.

          I love to be alive
          but I was not afraid to die



          07 Dido - Everything to lose




          Away from her trademark soppy ballads and backed with an amazing beat and riff, the Dido I used to love made a very welcome return in 2010 - albeit with hardly any promotion at all. Apparently there's no official video for this lovely song either.

            A little surprised to see Inna so high. I suppose it's an OK track, but I've never been particularly swayed by any of her stuff.

            And I thought I did recognise "Nicko" from his forearm tattoo from a previous video in this countdown...

            Which one? They've made 3 so far, at the last count! (Seriously!)

            Dido - why did I let that one get past me?

                Yeah, I was going to post the same thing!

                'Sweet Disposition' took a while to appeal to me, but now I find it entrancing!

                Dido - great!
                Inna - average, I prefer 'Hot' & 'Love'

                Nicko - fantastic discovery!

                  Quite like Inna but that Temper Trap song is such a lovely song. Glad to see it in you chart!

                    I have a Romanian friend in my flat and he plays the absolute crap out all of all Inna songs so I am a fan of her stuff!
                    And of course I love The Temper Trap!

                            I've been running the same countdown on Facebook and it's one or two songs ahead, so Kuba did mean Kesha indeed.

                              'til I walk in





                              06 Ke$ha - Tik tok




                              Always seemingly drunk and tipsy Ke$ha has released a number of catchy pop gems by now, almost all of which I played a lot during the past 12 months. Tik tok served as an accurate introduction to her sound, while a hilarious parody proved to be even more successful on YT than the original thing.

                                Nos vacances au soleil sous les UVB dans un institut de beauté, notre superbe voilier, qui a jamais vu la mer, nos lits improvisés, sur un morceau de moquette, les discussions de fin de soirées chez les copains. Oh oui, parlons en des copains. Pour foutre la merde, ils sont champions!




                                05 Jakie Quartz - Mise au point




                                Random oldie time then, and this time it comes from the french 80s. First time I heard Mise au Point was on some internet radio broadcast and I was instantly hooked. I also found a bit of myself and my ways of thinking in 2010 in some of the trivial lyrics as well. Then I saw the video and half the magic was gone.

                                  04 Taio Cruz feat. Ke$ha - Dirty picture (RedTop remix) / (Cookie Monsta Vocal mix)




                                  Two very different remixes here, equally awesome in their own right. RedTop's club-friendly sped-up version on one hand, Cookie Monsta's breakthrough dubstep mix on the other. And what the hell were they thinking placing Ke$ha atop a dirty toilet for the video!?

                                      Kesha is ace!
                                      Great to see people with top taste like you and Dustin liking catchy songs like hers instead of being snobs!
                                      I need to listen to that 80s French track, that is my decade
                                      Temper Trap and Tik Tok are my favs in your chart, but then I nh most...

                                              I feel I couldn't care less
                                              Without you around




                                              03 Aeroplane feat. Kathy Diamond - Whispers





                                              Top-notch production by Belgium's Aeroplane. The almost eerie sounding introductive bassline sets the mood perfectly, then gives way for other interweaved basslines, the song gets lighter, the lyrics don't and then the first bassline kicks slowly back in again, just to remind us that it may be disco, but- no, this is not a happy song.

                                                  Sorry but i hate Tik Tok and Dirty Picture - i don't mind some of her songs, though.

                                                  Temper Trap good, Dido excellent, Jakie Quartz - not really buy you got me looking up her minor UK hit which is great: A La Vie, A L'Amour



                                                  Aeroplane is good.

                                                    I'll join all Kesha lovers! Not that I'd like herself that much but "Tik Tok" is fantastic, I'd place it very very high in my own chart.

                                                    Amazing to see "Telephone" here, one of my big faves from last year too. Inna as well!

                                                        An enormous "thank you" to Neil for this amazing song. 3artes did a fantastic job transforming the original version into a dance triumph, while at the same time leaving all the emotion in Claire's zestful voice intact!

                                                          I want a daughter while I'm still young

                                                          01 Arcade fire - The suburbs





                                                          A song that managed to capture all the anguish of those who've seen the dreams they had as teenagers shatter, who've realized it won't be them who'll change the world, who've seen time leave its mark on their faces, but still have faith in themselves. All that, wrapped up in epic instrumentation and hair-raising vocals. The video failed to capture any of that - shame for such a big, big song, in every sense of the word.
