In Response: Pitchfork’s Top 100 Tracks 2010-2014

I had so much fun compiling my list of the best albums so far this decade that I decided to ape Pitchfork one more time and make my own list of the best songs as well. This one was much harder because there are a ton of albums that I don’t think are great but have one or two really great songs. So I had to dig a bit deeper. Still a lot of repeat offenders from my previous list but that’s ok.

I put them into a Spotify playlist for your listening pleasure (numbers reversed of course).
