The Top 25 Songs of 2010: #'s 5-1

Finally, we have come to The Halftime Steez's top 5 favorite tunes of 2010. But before we reveal, you might wanna (if you just wanna) check out twenty of my other favorite tunes right here:

5. Hot Chip - One Life Stand
A massive tune from their highly-anticipated 2010 LP of the same title. This became an instant fave. If you haven't heard anything from this English act, listening to this could be a start of a beautiful band-listener relationship, if there's such a thing.

4. Cee-Lo Green - Fuck You

Hands down, one of the best records of the year. Forget the "Forget You" clean version. This OG version is the real friggin' deal!

3. Mark Ronson & The Business INTL. Feat. Andrew Wyatt & Boy George - Somebody to Love Me

What can I say? Boy George is freakin' back! Him and Miike Snow's Andrew Wyatt killed this track. Big ups to Mark Ronson for putting this joint together. Just beautiful. 'Nuff said.

2. Carte Blanche Feat. Kid Sister - Do! Do! Do!

The most infectious dance track of the year. Elements of old school house and the New York vogue scene, plus a great effort by Kid Sister on the vocals. A celebration of style, substance and sound.

1. Breakbot Feat. Irfane - Baby I'm Yours

Sometimes great songs are made without any useless fuss and complications, a category in which  the lovely and catchy "Baby I'm Yours" fits perfectly. With the success of this particular track, paired with the success of Carte Blanche and Uffie's respective releases, 2010 has been a good year for the great folks at Ed Banger Records! Please keep 'em coming in 2011!
