thanks 2010, for renewing my faith in wasting a ridiculous amount of time and money on music

2010 doesn’t feel finished without some sort of “most heard songs in 2010 mix.” after all, i am one to get fixated and put em on repeat, and the year is defined in those moods. so here.

you might notice a bit of a bias toward:
what i can love that old people also might not hate (half of my listening is done in my shop)
bands with boys i have crushes on
not minding if something wasn’t released in 2010
cee lo

and now, in alphabetical order, more than milk’s most heard songs in 2010:
