I honestly just don’t have the mental capacity or stamina to post a comprehensive best songs of the decade list with 50-100 choices like many of you took on the heroic undertaking of doing, so this certainly isn’t an all-encompassing compendium of the decade but on the last day of the 2010s as I’m sitting here watching the decade wind down I wanted to at least just post a bunch of favorite songs off the top of my head from the past 10 years. I started with just a few and I’ve been hunkered down for a couple of hours taking a trip down memory lane as more and more old favorites came back to me.

Some of these most of you will probably know, but a lot of them are probably lesser-known ones that for whatever reason I loved at the time (or still love) and hope that by posting them here some people will get to hear them for the first time and that they won’t disappear into a memory. Some of them are just freestyles over other people’s beats but for whatever reason they spoke to me at the time and I felt like including them. It was hard to figure out how to rank songs from this year/last year versus ones that have stood the test of time for ten years but I gave it a shot.  So anyway here were my favorite songs of the decade, with Keef topping the chart for song of the decade (which is almost an impossible decision to make) and a whole bunch of others, and a few more appearances by Lil Rue and Jackie Chain than I had expected; looking back, both those dudes had some fucking fire at the beginning of the decade. And how about Lil Debbie, Edai, and maybe even Berner? Happy New Years to all.
