Everybody with an opinion seems to be doing a decadal wrap-up of one sort or another, but I’m too tired to do anything serious. So, I’ll let you do it for me: here’s a list of ten songs that are, in my mind, inextricably bound up with the events of the decade. Which of them do you like the best?
I’m not claiming that these are necessarily the best songs of the decade– some of them aren’t even the best song on their album– but these are songs that, years from now, I’ll hear and it will instantly be 200x in my head. Which ought to count for something.
