Favorite Songs of 2010

Every year, I’m amazed at the great music indie rock and electronic artists produce. It’s sad how bland and repetitive commercial radio continues to be. These songs have great melodies, you can sing along to, dance to, rock out to, or savor the lush electronic sounds. There are a lot of songs, but I encourage you to explore them all. These artists deserve more credit. I’m sure some are new to many of you. The link to my favorite albums on Amazon is at the bottom. Enjoy!
