We know what we bought this year (Adele's Skyfall, PSY's Gangham Style, Gonzales' album Solo Piano II, and, well, that might be it). Not at all an exhaustive list of the best things that came out. So we've called upon the experts (Billboard, Rolling Stone and Fuse) and put together our own Top 10 list.
How did we miss this? Somehow, they've recaptured the psychadelic sound that defined them at their best, and put out something we like as much as Three Days, and more recently, Just Because.
No. 47 on Billboard's list, and really, they should know. Is that because it exploded in August? We're putting it down as No. 2.
We're bandwagon fans, too, but really, we might have to check out these lyrics to find out how on earth one sets fire to the rain.
Do we love it? Do we hate it? We still can't decide. But we always like hearing it.
Has silly pop ever been so...unavoidably great?
Who cares if our 10-year-old nephew introduced us to this one?
This synthy pop song is all good for us.
Who cares if you're too old for boy bands this time around? There's a whole generation that's not.
A cool girl singing about a life we aren't living. We need one every year.
Echo-y European country music. Cool.
