After snoozing last year and not doing one, here’s my semi-traditional year-end mix, as always done by scanning all songs added to iTunes during the year and picking the ones that stood out. Either because I like them especially or because of their association.
All files are either mp3 or m4a, hosted on Sendspace and redirected via anonym.to.
sweet independence (Evamaria’s 2010 playlist)
1. Stornoway – Zorbing
Breezy British summer pop. Reminds me of my wonderful week in London.
2. Black Cards (feat. Chiddy Bang) – Club Called Heaven
The end of Fall Out Boy makes me sadface. But I do like Pete’s new project. Especially this song, which reminds me of the blast I had doing burlesque.
3. Murray Gold – Every Star, Every Planet
This was the year I fell back in love with Doctor Who. Yay for Eleven! 🙂
4. Scissor Sisters – Whole New Way
5. Beecake – Lost Direction
6. Belle & Sebastian – Write About Love
Been listening to them for years, finally saw them live at Zurich OpenAir.
7. Ben L’Oncle Soul – Seven Nations Army
8. The Dandy Warhols – All the Money or the Simple Things Honey
One of my favorite songs on my running playlist.
9. Eels – Spectacular Girl
10. Gossip – Men In Love
My favorite kind of sparkly pop.
11. José Gonzalez – Heartbeats
12. My Chemical Romance – Na Na Na
I only got the whole album on my return from Haiti, but I do like the Fabulous Killjoys.
13. of Montreal – Coquet Coquette
14. Spoon – Written in Reverse
15. David Garrett – Smooth Criminal
Instrumental MJ – how can I resist?
16. David Nevue – Sweet Dreams & Starlight
17. Gold Motel – Don’t Send the Searchlights
Greta Morgan’s new band sounds almost as nice as Hush Sound… *g*
18. Jamie Cullum – Move On Song
19. Janelle Monae (feat. Big Boi) – Tightrope
Janelle rocks so hard, I was so thrilled she released a full-length album.
20. 30 Seconds to Mars – Bad Romance (Lady Gaga cover)
Can’t not have Lady Gaga – or at least a cover. *g*
21. Dispatch – The General
David taught us this song during the hurricane in Haiti. I’ll never forget how it sounds with just a guitar and a bunch of volunteers singing in the dark…
22. Rufus Wainwright – The Dream
23. Tim Minchin – Inflatable You
Some comedy to cheer things up. 🙂
24. Andi Weiss – Gut Gehn
Christian German singer-songwriter. Fitting considering I got baptised this summer.
25. Old Crow Medicine Show – Wagon Wheel
Another song we sang in Haiti.
