2009: My Top 10 Singles

10/ ‘Ignorance’ – Paramore: ‘Misery Business’ with different lyrics. Good harmless fun.

9/ ‘Sweet Disposition’ – The Temper Trap: The best U2 song in years.

8/ ‘Juggernauts’ – Enter Shikari:  Best Mike Skinner impression of 2009.

7/ ‘Daniel’ – Bat For Lashes: Should have won Natasha Khan the 2009 Mercury Prize. And everything that Lily Allen is not.

6/ ‘Dominoes’ – The Big Pink: Used to sell just about everything from games consoles to TV programmes, but disappointingly not pizzas.

5/ ‘Fire’ – Kasabian: The only ever Kasabian song not to sound like a poor man’s Oasis?!

4/ ‘Poker Face’ – Lady Gaga: Inescapable and annoying, yet oddly likeable. Pretty much like Gaga herself then.

3/’The Only One’ – Manchester Orchestra: Their best single offering to date.

2/ ‘Young Cardinals’ – Alexisonfire: What AOF do best, in one addictive song.

1/ ‘Cornerstone’ – Arctic Monkeys: Goodbye Alex Turner cheeky indie scamp. Hello Alex Turner classic songwriter.

Other highlights:

‘ New In Town’ – Little Boots, ‘Cheat On Me’ – The Cribs, ‘The Vulture’ – Gallows, ‘(If You’re Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To’ – Weezer,  ‘Crying Lightning’ – Arctic Monkeys,  ‘The Reeling’ – Passion Pit,  ‘Sticks and Stones’ and ‘Chaka Demus’ – Jamie T, ‘Kingdom of Rust’ – Doves, Yeah Yeah Yeahs ‘Zero’ and ‘Heads Will Roll’,  Say Anything ‘Hate Everyone’,  The Prodigy ‘Warrior’s Dance’, Biffy Clyro ‘That Golden Rule’ and ‘The Captain’.
