I can find about 20 I really enjoyed, another half dozen that I liked, and too many that I haven't heard...

countpopula said...

Ouch, no love for Pet Shop Boys electro-waltz "Together" or the underrated Alphabeat's "DJ"? Ho hum.

Joanna said...

Duran Duran's song "Skin"? Never heard about it. It's not on the new album. Where did you hear this song?

xolondon said...

Wasn't Alphabeat last year? No, I don't like Together!

Oops, I meant Safe, Joanna! Fixed!

Mclean said...

oh my list! there is plenty that i haven't heard on here. gotta dig in and work that out. i was behind on BIM (sans head over heels) and i'm loving lost in the maze.

did you hear "don't hold me back" by alex cornish? love that one

what about oh land?

countpopula said...

Well, the Alphabeat was technically 2009 I guess, but the actual single release was 2010. Maybe it's so old-hat that nobody else wants to mention it either. Poor old Alphabeat. At least Gaga was getting on some lists even though we first heard Telephone & Alejandro in 2009.

As for Together, BLASPHEMY! Seriously, is that song so much different than anything from Yes? I wonder if you would have had the same experience had it been included there? I thought the 3/4 time was pretty ingenious, and it had a catchy chorus melody with some subtly dark lyrics and big synth-driven choirs in the background. What's not to love?

Diva Incarnate said...

I recently too notice of Cee Lo when I came across his Paul Epworth track No One's Gonna Love You. I'll need to check those others out.

No Linda Sundblad? Manifest was the best all-out pure pop album since True Blue (maybe).

I'd also add Hole's Samantha - that song haunts my head, and the closest she'll ever get to Stevie Nicks.

xolondon said...

Gahhhh! Forgot Linda - I loved one song a lot. Need to recall which one.

Diva, I am shocked you do not have the Cee Lo record. See my album list. My faves are Wildflower, I Want You (truly epic) and Cry Baby.

I love the list! Hurts is still killing me softly... and all because of you.
Your blog is the only other blog I read, besides this one http://brockstreet.blogspot.com/

The Middle Eight is my own little secret music porn site.

Thanks and a very prosperous new year to you xolondon.
