Looking back 2010: top 10 songs on my playlist

Music is the soul of life. I typically listen to a wide variety of music – rock, jazz, instrumental, and everything in between. I’ve tended to stay away from Hindi music, though, because until recently, most of the songs were quite terrible. But since a couple of years, Bollywood’s been surprising me — not only have there been some excellent Hindi movies, the music has been great too! So here is my list of the 10 songs I totally loved this year, in no particular order. I’ve thrown in YouTube videos for the Hindi songs, so my non-Indian friends can listen in if they’d like.

  1. Need you now – Lady Antebellum
  2. Gypsy – Shakira
  3. I feel good – Anjaana Anjaani OST
  4. Airplanes – B.O.B.
  5. Watch me burn – Rihana feat. Eminem
  6. Waka Waka – Shakira
  7. Iktara – Wake up Sid OST
  8. The catalyst – Linkin Park
  9. Boogieman – AC DC
  10. Dhan te nan – Kaminey OST

  1. Great post – I love that you have such a varied selection and songs that I’ve never heard before. I’m pleased that you put some you tube videos up too so I can have a listen – will catch up with these at home later.

    How did you manage to get the Linky to work, I haven’t been able to work out what’s wrong with it?

    Have a lovely day,

    • Thanks Jade! Hope you enjoy the music! 🙂

      I’m at home today – didn’t get in to work because I wasn’t feeling too well – so using Mozilla. Could be an Internet Explorer problem, or maybe something off with my work laptop. Not sure what it was that day!

  3. Hmm, I am a music-o-holic, born and raised on R&R. My taste is pretty diversified as well. I got a new iPod recently because all my music didn’t fit on my old one! So what’s on my 2010 playlist… In no particular order:

    -Dido: Everything to Lose
    -Boozoo Bajou: Signs, Killer
    – Phoenix: If I Ever Feel Better, Armistice, Fences
    – Sara Bareilles & Ingrid Michaelson: Winter Song
    – Starfucker: Rawnald Gregory Erickson the Second
    – Diddy – Dirty Money: Angels (feat. B.I.G)
    – Matisyahu: One Day
    – Edward Sharpre & the Magentic Zeros: Home
    – Moby: Pale Horses
    – Kaskade: Fire in our New Shoes
    – Aceyalone: To the Top
    – LadyHawke: My Delerium
    – Eminem: Love the Way You Lie
    – Dee Edwards: Why Can’t There Be Love?
    – Zero 7: Ghost Symbol
    – Massive Attack: Atlas

    OK, I’m going to stop now 🙂 I was planning to put one together for my blog as well but I think it would take me too much time LOL!

    • wow, interesting music choices – I haven’t even heard of some of these bands! Gonna have to check them out! I like Dido and Moby too – Eminem I’m not too fond if, but I like Love the way you lie and I’m not afraid
