Hello world! This is Ben and Dave, coming at ya from the world wide interweb. On our first show – live on air at 10AM UK time, every Friday, and replaying at the ICradio web site at your demand – we revealed our favourite 5 tracks of 2010, along with some honourable and guilty mentions.
In no particular order, we chose:
- Holiday – Vampire Weekend
- American Slang – The Gaslight Anthem
- Melancholy Hill – Gorillaz
- Bloodbuzz Ohio – The National
- Fuck You – Cee-Lo Green
An Honourable Mention for Best Party Tune went to Yolanda Be Cool’s runaway anthem, “We No Speak Americano”, introduced by the lovely Polly, our first guest (and radio-guide).
We then shared our Guilty Pleasures… Dave chose Drunk Girls, by LCD Soundsystem, while Ben got truly guilty with Pass Out by Tinie Tempah. And the show was closed out with a teaser of next week’s program: 5 songs to play when you find out your girlfriend (or other romantic partner) is a robot!
Do you agree or disagree with our choices? What were your top tunes of 2010? And if you found out your partner was a robot, what songs would you play?
