Top 25 Songs of 2010: 15-6

Hello. I hope you had a nice holiday. Mine was great too, thanks for asking. Let's cut these formalities and get back to business. It is snowing, and threatens to stay that way through tomorrow, dumping up to 20 inches on the hungover masses. When it comes to Nor'easters, shoveling is futile until it's all over. You're better off putting on that new sweater, making some cocoa, and finding a movie marathon worthy of your valuable time. But before you get sucked into that sedentary vortex, take a few minutes and join me as I countdown another ten great songs.

15. Rihanna - Only Girl (In The World)

Tasty techno pop,
"Natural Woman" with bass,
Helps me run up hills.

14. Warpaint - Undertow

Pretty. Dangerous.
Don't say they didn't warn you.
I hope you can swim.

13. The National - Bloodbuzz Ohio

Mistakes and regrets.
Madness in the minutiae,
Don't ever get old.

12. Janelle Monae - Cold War

Sonic chameleon
Does Rihanna impression,
But with better hair.

11. Yeasayer - O.N.E.

African arcade
Meets sappy break-up anthem.
Please add more quarters.

10. Arcade Fire - Ready to Start

Angry teens rejoice!
Grown ups hate everything too!
Now go to your room.

9. All I Want- LCD Soundsystem

Murphy boosts Bowie,
but with his signature bloops.
Forty and Emo.

8. The Tallest Man on Earth - King of Spain

One part skinny jeans,
Extract of Dylan, Sweden.
Add mustache to taste.

7. Vampire Weekend - Giving Up the Gun

New Western epic
Starring Nic Cage and Tom Hanks.
Oscars guaranteed.

6. Crystal Castles ft. Robert Smith - Not In Love

Emo king stays young,
Lends voice to boring techno,
Turns it into gold.
