Playlist: Revisiting The Best Songs of 2010

As Arcade Fire celebrate the tenth anniversary of their groundbreaking and Grammy award winning album The Suburbs, we thought we’d take a trip down memory lane and revisit our favourite tracks from 2010, with this new playlist on Spotify.

Regine and Win from the Canadian band have shared a video of them performing a track from that record, “Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)”, which topped out list of the best tracks of that year.

In lieu of one track that we picked that year that wasn’t on Spotify (Fishing’s “Oooo”), we’ve added in another Arcade Fire song to the end of the Spotify playlist – the excellent “We Used To Wait”.

Kanye West made three appearances on the list – all taken from the brilliant My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, and Yeasayer (who sadly called it quits last year) made two appearances with “O.N.E.” and “Ambling Alp”. Elsewhere, songs from the likes of The Black Keys, The Temper Trap, Tame Impala and more take us back to a very, very good year of music.
