Top 37 tracks of 2010

I don’t usually write about music, because I’m not that good at it. I don’t usually make lists of the best music from a year, because I seem to take a while to catch up with new music, often a good five years. This year has been different, though. I have been making more of an effort to keep up with music, and, more to the point, freakytrigger have just asked for readers to submit their top 20 tracks of the year, and I felt like joining in.
After a few weeks investigating anything I hadn’t listened to yet, I’ve come up with a, um, top 37. The top 20 will be submitted, the other 17 are here because I like 37 tracks and it’s my blog, my rules.
