Top 30 Songs of 2010

Every other blog in the blogosphere has an end-of-year list, so my attempt at a “30 best songs of 2010” countdown really isn’t the earthquake of an idea that this site so sorely needs. But I am going to do it regardless, because a) I’ve never done a year-end list, and 2) I’m definitely the handsomest blogger doing one. That’s just facts.

So here it is: my top 30 songs of 2010*. I probably could have done the top 31 in order to coincide with each day of December, but I literally thought of this an hour ago. If I had a time machine I would go back to yesterday and write this post so that each day in December would have it’s own song. Oh and while I have it I might as well also go back to the Sam Goody in the Ocean County Mall in the summer of 1999 and punch my 15-year-old self in the peenus before he buys Limp Bizkit’s Significant Other.

*These are merely one very handsome man’s opinions on what the top 30 songs of the past year have been and in no way is supposed to be a representation of what the rest of society deems as “good music.”
