Top 75 Tracks 2010: THE TOP TEN

Dec 22 2010 Published by MV under Future Hits

Yes, it’s here, the actual top ten. I felt like expanding my annual top 50 to 75 was a clever move. I now feel like I’ve been writing about songs pretty much FOREVER. It’s a good job doing so is such fun.

Anyway, as this is the top ten, you will not be surprised to find some GUSHING contained within. It builds slowly, but it’s definitely there by the end.

Because it’s the summer, and I’m feeling kind, I’ve decided to stick to reviewing songs I actually like. Or at least find interesting.  Away with the bad vibes! The rest of the week’s good/ok/interesting releases are available with a simple click below…
