Top 100 Songs of '10: 55-11

Now it's time for the next group of 45 songs on my Top 100 of 2010. Even though I wasn't blogging throughout 2010 I was still buying music when I could and since I was buying music, I felt the need to make a list. It's what I do. I've tried twelve step programs but I find that to be counterproductive since it is by very definition just a list of twelve things to do and as such seems to exacerbates my issue.

Back to the music.

Even though I had made a list and tinkered with it to come up with an order I liked late in the year it is not 100% the same as the one I'm posting now. In the intervening months I've come to appreciate some songs a bit more than I had when they came out in, lets say late November, for arguments sake. So something that might have been at #88 if I had posted in December might now be in the top 25. Likewise, something I might have been very keen on then might have fallen down, or off the list now. What can I say, list making is a fickle bitch goddess. Here's the next 45:
