SOUND OF 2010 : 81-100

With 2010 coming to an end, it’s time for those tedious end of the year lists, and this blog is no different.

When I hosted a blog on Bebo, I used to post a weekly Top 5 of the songs I was listening to that week, and then at the end of the year, drip feed a Top 100 of the year just past.

I’m going to drip feed 20 songs each week between now and December 23rd, each Thursday night.

Why Thursday?

Well, that was the night I always upadted my blog on Bebo.

I don’t know how or why it became Thursday night, it just did, so I thought i’d just keep that little tradition going.

I always seemed to notice that when I posted my Top 5, one of the videos would end up in somebody’s flashbox. Hopefully, over the next five weeks, you will be introduced to some new songs you won’t have heard, and will come to love.

Previous ‘Sound Of’ winners are : Kasabien (2006) Fiest (2007) Sons and Daughters (2008) and Little Boots (2009)

And now rules. Lady Ga Ga fans might be in for a bit of a shock with no ‘Alejandro’, because it featured in last year’s chart.

Jona Lewie will feature because it’s a re-recording. But apart from that – my chart, my rules.
