10. Bobby Womack, "Please Forgive My Heart," 2012
It's fitting that Womack's last single, on his first album of original material since 1994, was a heart-rending request for forgiveness. "I'm a liar, I'm in a dream," he exclaims over fidgety electronic rhythms and minimal piano from producers Damon Albarn and XL Records' head Richard Russell. A sixtysomething genius and rogue whose life had been plagued by addiction, diabetes, pneumonia, colon cancer and dementia, had come full circle. Now, we were the ones crying.
