Christian Hoard's Best of 2010

Page 2 of 2

Singles

1. Ke$ha, "Tik Tok"
She's almost as polarizing as Kanye — people really hate this song, which I take as more proof of its genius. I like to imagine she and Dr. Luke kept listening to playback and going, "Not dumb enough!"

2. Robyn, "Dancing on My Own"
The most perfect of all the perfect songs she gave us in 2010.

3. Die Antwoord, "Enter the Ninja"

4. Kanye West, "Power"

5. The National, "Bloodbuzz Ohio"

6. Les Savy Fav, "Let's Get Out of Here"
Archers of Loaf-style guitar clamor plus raw boy-voices singing, "we got mouths, let's make 'em moan." Overtly horny indie-rock — sort of rare, right?

Critic's Picks: Will Hermes' Best Albums and Singles of 2010

7. Far East Movement, "Like a G6"
The song puking one stall over from "Tik Tok."

8. Lindstrom & Christabelle, "Lovesick"

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
