Am I an idiot for thinking that I can only pick 100 songs to share with y’all and not feel guilty about all the other music that I’m leaving out? Is this list completely bias? Am I brain-dead from trying to write about why I love every single song on this list?
The answer is yes.
Reminder: this is a list of MY FAVORITE songs of the decade, not THE GREATEST songs of the decade. There is a key difference. Same rules apply to this list as they did for my favorite albums of the decade so far.
Also make sure to check out the spotify playlist with all these songs at the end of this list.
Alright, let’s begin.

And by this cat I mean this awesome band from Delhi, India. And by flies I mean flies.

And You Also Need To Hear This N’to Remix Of Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Scar Tissue”
Also so good.
Shlohmo – “Emerge From Smoke”
Lady Lamb the Beekeeper – “Billions Of Eyes”

A strange song that’s upbeat yet moody at the same time.
