Sure this hasn't been started over here yet,

Any recommendations for the best of 2010?

I really like Ray LaMontagne & The Pariah Dogs - God willin' & The Creek Don't Rise.

Any other good one's

To be honest, I think Arcade Fire's album The Suburbs is my favourite of 2010.

Don't think all of these were released in 2010, but other fairly recent albums I'm listening to a lot are:

The Fool - Warpaint
Exquisite Corpse - Warpaint
Bliss Release - Cloud Control
Parlovr - Parlovr
I Speak Because I Can - Laura Marling
A Balloon Called Moaning - The Joy Formidable

I also still can't fault XX by The XX. That album is just stunning.

One of my favourite tracks just recently has been Trumpalump by DELS. Think he's due to release an album fairly soon. It's hip hop, but it's produced from Joe Goddard from Hot Chip. Absolutely quality. I keep thinking I've grown out of hip hop, that it has lost its invention, that it's reaching the end of the road. Then every now and again a song comes along that restores my faith in the genre. In 2010 it was Trumpalump. Crap name, but a quality, quality song - especially the second half of it.

Really like that Twin Sister song that Juvehero posted on FM-B a little while ago as well. Can't remember what it's called. Also, they're playing a song called Colours by Grouplove on 6Music a lot at the moment. Quite like that.

If I had to choose a Song of 2010 though, I'd probably go for Devil's Spoke by Laura Marling.

Yeah well I thought I might try to bring myself up to date.

I do own the XX (even got it before the mercury prize believe it or not) and it is a good album.

I may pick one of daf's choices and give it a go.

Given the little I know about your music taste Al, and the fact you enjoyed Ray LaMontagne, I suggest out of all of those I've listed there you should probably give Laura Marling's album a go. Thup

Indie, Rock or general guitar led music is best. RnB, Rap and Britney-style pop to be avoided mostly

You'll probably be well aware of a lot of these and probably have many of them already as they're quite obvious choices.

Still, these are a few of the rock/indie songs that I consider to be stone cold classics:

1960s
She's Not There - The Zombies
I Wanna Be Your Dog - The Stooges
Like A Rolling Stone - Bob Dylan
Wouldn't It Be Nice - The Beach Boys
Tomorrow Never Knows - The Beatles
I Can't Explain - The Who
Sympathy for the Devil - The Rolling Stones
I'm Waiting for the Man - The Velvet Underground

1970s
London Calling - The Clash
She's Lost Control - Joy Division
Heroes - David Bowie
Down In the Tube Station At Midnight - The Jam
A Walk on the Wild Side - Lou Reed

1980s
Where is My Mind? - Pixies
Bigmouth Strikes Again - The Smiths
Waterfall - The Stone Roses

1990s
My Iron Lung - Radiohead
Common People - Pulp
My Name Is Jonas - Weezer
Lose Control - Ash
Caught By the Fuzz - Supergrass
New Pollution - Beck

Argh - so many for the 90s. I'll stop there. Mrgreen

2000s
Fell in Love With A Girl - The White Stripes
Rebellion (Lies) - Arcade Fire
New Born - Muse
No One Knows - Queens of the Stone Age
Out of Time - Blur

Only 35 tracks to cover 50 years of music of all genres. That is an immense task JP. I'm sure nearly everyone here would recommend a different 35!

I've actually got a recording of me singing Tomorrow Never Knows somewhere (without the use of any illegal substances I might add)

Turin Brakes? Not listened to them for ages!

Can't believe the best Beatles song has not been mentioned - I Am The Walrus

Also daf, no Oasis? Mrgreen

Absolutely loved Bring It On when it was released.

Believe it or not I was quite up to date with music at the time (worked in Our Price) and it just struck a chord with me.
