Grybop's Best of 2010 (-#01)

Moderators: tdc2000, FreakyFlyBry

 

Postby Grybop » Fri Dec 31, 2010 1:18 pm

Just like last time (and every year actually), my year-end chart contains songs that may have not been released as singles; in fact some of them may have not been released within the year at all.
It merely represents the songs I loved the most during the previous 12 months and started to like within that period, or shortly before.
2010 has been an odd year for me music-wise, meaning I didn't engage myself in listening to music as much as I used to. I'm certain 2010 was a great year for music - unfortunately I was not there to listen to it.

There will be no video or shortlist before this year's countdown, merely a mention of some songs that just missed out.



Annie - I don't like your band
Kemal Dogulu - Uzayda ask var
Lady Gaga - Alejandro
Bear in heaven - Lovesick teenagers
Dee-lux - Hot Hot Hot (Frisco Remix)
Jason Derülo – Ridin' Solo
Example – Kickstarts (Wideboys remix)
Laura Steel – Feedback (Soul Seekerz Club Mix)


Also, an honourable mention must go to Groove Armada's amazing album, especially their collaboration with Will Young, which unfortunately didn't make the list either.

The list this year is unashamedly poppish, containing a few dance numbers, lots of female vocalists and the token random oldie as usual.

The countdown will commence soon.

I like Lady GaGa and the Wideboys remix of Example. I can't stand that Derulo song though.

It's a shame you haven't been listening to as much this year! I'm still looking forward to the countdown though - obviously! :D

Bear In Heaven 8-)
Alejandro great. Annie OK.

Indeed a shame that we seem to have lost you. What takes up your time now? Film-making?

Surprised to see DeRulo. :o
I love GaGa and Example.

I can't wait to see what made your list especially since you say that you didn't really listen to a lot of music in 2010.

Taking a look at some of this year's charts here, I'm surprised to see that much dislike for Derulo, I understand why some may find him annoying though!

Thanks for the responses and, no, I only wish film-making took up my time - it's plain trivial everyday life routine I'm afraid.

I could see GaGa or Jason taking this. I voted for them because they are the only two I know.

Links to videos hidden in pics.




20 Washed out - Hold out


Image
Sound compression never sounded so dreamy.




19 Hot chip - I feel better


Image

My #1 ringtone of the year, awesome video as well.




18 Surisan - Where have you gone


Image

Heard this one in Istanbul, must have been the biggest dance song of the year there!

How did I miss this until now?

Your image from "Telephone" immediately reminded me of this other crazy couple:

Image

Now, I knew GaGa has built her career on aping Madonna, but that is just too much!!! :lol:

Hot Chip is definitely a contender for video of the year! Gaga: take note.

Also good to see Flor so high up there - it finished inside the Irish Top 30 Singles for the year, too, which also caught me by surprise, given that it's been around for years already!

I may be wrong, but didn't Surisan take part in the FSC last year? EDIT: She did, and you even started a thread which received no replies...

And shame Mr Dogulu (sorry, his name reminds me of Sweden's awful 1984 ESC winner!!) didn't make the cut. More Turkish pop, please!

Oh, and by the way, it's a shame you haven't had time to make a video this year, as you did in previous years. But fantastic to get this window into the music you've enjoyed in the last 12 months when we had precisely ZERO weekly updates!!!

Well..... I wasn't sure you would like that GaGa/Beyonce song. Very happy to see it chart!

Nice to see GaGa/Beyoncé (one of the best pop songs of the year) and "Dog Days Are Over" (one of the Florence tracks I like)

:lol: Love the granny/Madge comparison!

I wish I could find more turkish pop in the same vein as Kemal's, but even he seems to have abandoned his electronic roots for a more oriental sound, as evident in his latest EP.

Thanks for the comments :)

Most effective sample usage in 2010 and yet another great video - inspired by one of my favourite movies, Punishment Park.




13 Nikos Ganos - Kita ti ekanes


Image

Pop from a pop-hating country.






12 Grum - Through the night


Image

Favourite producer and favourite video of 2010.
