30 Drake: Child’s Play
When you next see me, please ask me to sing you Child’s Play. I’m not saying I do it particularly well, I just love singing it… Bounce that shit like ‘whoah’…
29 The Hotelier: Two Deliverances
28 Tove Lo: WTF Love Is
Perhaps the first song of 2016 that I considered one of the absolute best. Sure, it may veer a little to close to ‘If you can’t handle me at my worst you don’t deserve me at my best’ Facebook posts, but forwards the gloriously nihilistic theory that accepting people being twats and mindlessly subscribing to cliched romantic tropes and gestures. Bwa-ha-ha! Such cynicism feeds me!!
Live up to the best and the worst of your dreeeeeeeeeeams,
27 Band of Horses: Casual Party
Have you ever had that feeling of ennui when you’re at a friend’s house party, looking at the man dressed as a squid sitting in a bath full of carrots, and wondered if you should have even bothered turning up?
1:01 That first ‘BLIND FAITH!!’ gets me every time, and is 67% of the reason the song’s so high on this list
26 Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds: I Need You
This song is just…
It’d be much higher if I didn’t find it so dang difficult to listen to sometimes: too much fucking perspective!
25 Kid Cudi: Frequency
Ah, that’s better: couple girls, couple stories and a couple ‘shrooms…
24 Alicia Keys: Work On It
23 D.R.A.M: Broccoli
‘Nigger touch my gang we gonna turn this shit to Columbine’
‘I was 5 or 6 years old when I had told myself ok you’re special/But I treat you like my equal never lesser’ OK, that’s funny…
22 Yeasayer: Silly Me
1:22- ‘She said’are you kidding me?/Your narcissistic be-hai-vour/Has been killing me”
21 Frightened Rabbit: Get Out
