2010: Q1 I Heard It On The Radio... or not
This is what happy and relaxed looks like, in Paris, March 18, 2010.
Every year I think, Have all the melodies been used? No, clearly, they have not. A great year for music thus far. This list has been compiled in the post-haze of my vacation, so I am sure something has slipped my mind. I could have included so many more songs from Ellie, Laura Marling, Goldfrapp (who still dominated) and Marina, but I wanted to keep this mix-length. Which ones will make it to my Top for 2010?
