[BEST OF 2010] The top 30 singles of the year

Let's be honest, my top 10 singles of the year could have looked a bit like this :

1. Scissor Sisters -Invisible Light
2. Robyn - Dancing On My Own
3. Scissor Sisters - Any Which Way
4. Robyn - In My Eyes
5. Robyn - Include Me Out
6. Robyn - None Of Dem
7. Robyn - Love Kills
8. Robyn - Indestructible
9. Robyn - Fembot
10. Robyn - Criminal Intent

OK, it wouldn't have been very fair for all the awesome pop acts that made this year so great music-wise. With the confirmation of a few revelations of 2009 (Marina, Hurts, Julian Perretta…) some fantastic newcomers (Bright Light Bright Light, Tove Styrke, Van Go Lion, Florrie, Alex Gardner…) and the never disappointing oldies but goodies (Scissor Sisters, Kylie, Sophie Ellis Bextor…).

But the real winners of the year have to be ballsy, kinda indie and boundary-pushing female popstars who give all the well-established sluts and singing atrocities like Rihanna, Katy Perry or Ke$ha a run for their money, both creatively and musically. I can't even begin to understand why Robyn, Marina, Adele, Sophie or Janelle aren't the huge popstars they deserve to be. At least they're not corrupted by easy, ready-to-swallow stinky tracks that please the tired ears of the masses.

Let's just hope there will still be some space for these artists to grow and be able to make more records in the future. In the meantime, roll on 2011!

When I look at all these nice faces which are almost the same with the same smiles...I am really sorry for that, for those people who should work there, sing awful songs when it is necessary and do other things like that.
