End of 10: Top 20 Songs Wrap-Up

When I was compiling this post, I noticed an egregious omission. As pointed out earlier this month, Bonnie "Prince" Billy's 2010 release, Wonder Show of the World, didn't knock my socks off. However, it did feature one of the year's best individual efforts in "Troublesome Houses". So my profound apologies to Will Oldham for not doling out credit where it was due.

(Sorry for that awful still shot. Karma's a bitch.)

Anyway, in the interest of having the original list in one location, here you go:

20. Josh Ritter - "See How Man Was Made"
19. Marc Ribot - "Delancey Waltz"
18. Hold Steady - "The Smidge"
17. Dr. Dog - "Where'd All the Time Go?"
16. Jay Bennett - "Mirror Ball"
15. Sufjan Stevens - "Now That I'm Older"
14. Arcade Fire - "Half Light II (No Celebration)"
13. Eels - "A Line In the Dirt"
12. Toro Y Moi - "Minors"
11. Deerhunter - "Coronado"
10. Beach House - "Norway"
9. Vampire Weekend - "I Think Ur A Contra"
8. Titus Andronicus - "A More Perfect Union"
7. The National - "Bloodbuzz Ohio"
6. Black Keys - "Next Girl"
5. Phosphorescent - "Mermaid Parade"
4. Walkmen - "Angela Surf City"
3. Tallest Man on Earth - "Burden of Tomorrow"
2. Local Natives - "Shape Shifter"
1. Spoon - "Out Go the Lights"

And here's a .zip of all these tracks, including "Troublesome Houses".
