The Top 25 Songs of 2010: #'s 15-11


Click here for Part 1 (#'s 25-21)
Click here for part 2 (#'s 20-16)

15. Gyptian - Hold You

Gyptian's cross-over hit "Hold You" is an instant Dancehall classic, so much so that Billboard Magazine deemed the track a "2010 Summer Anthem".

14. Rick Ross Feat. Drake & Chrisette Michelle - Aston Martin Music

The beat could've easily been mistaken for a potential R&B hit. But Officer Ricky, together with his constituents, took it for a different spin, particularly, right around the autobahn, inside a luxuriously fast Aston Martin Vanquish. The extended verse from Drizzy Drake makes for one of the more pleasant 5-minute tracks of the year.

13. Kanye West Feat. Jay-Z, Curtis Mayfield, Charlie Wilson & Kid Cudi - The Joy

Out of the 14 "G.O.O.D. Fridays" releases since August, three made it to Mr. West's long-awaited 2010 album. This one, unfortunately, didn't make the cut. However, this has to be one of the best 'Ye cuts of the year. All due respect to its all-star cast, "The Joy" should be credited for its production work, with none other than the legendary Pete Rock at the helm.

12. Scissor Sisters - Any Which Way
The second single off their 2010 release, Night Work. With its first single "Fire With Fire" creeping into The Killers-esque territory, "Any Which Way" is simply a Scissor Sisters signature. You can add a little Bee Gees twang to that!

11. Drake - Find Your Love

The beat on "Find Your Love" is basically Drake making love to a Roland TR-808. This joint from the critically-acclaimed Thank Me Later also enables Drizzy to be cheesy with the ladies, whilst keeping that coveted bit of street cred.
