It is that time of year once again, the dreaded top 10 lists. To milk this as much as possible, I am dropping 3 posts on you. Number 17 to 11, then 10-6 and finally my top 5. How do 17 songs end up on a top 10 list you ask? Simple my blog and I can do what I want. Seriously though, I have trouble picking my favourites and couldn’t whittle it down anymore than this. I did leave some great music on the side unfortunately. So without further adieu, I give number 11 to 17, completely without any further yapping from me, just the music.
17 “Stars” by Grace Potter and the Nocturnals
16 “Cry Love” by Belle Starr
15 “Can You Get to That” by Mavis Staples
14 “When You Know” by Matt Epp & Serena Ryder
13 “Out of the Woods” by Justin Rutledge
12 “Back It Up”‘ by Caro Emerald
11 “Cold Cold Heart” by Bobby Bazini
I’ve heard this tune a lot over the past few months. It kind of grows on you. When I first heard it, I immediately thought it was a new tune from Paolo Nutini. Wrong. Bobby Bazini is a French-Canadian sinnger songwriter out of Mont-Laurier, Quebec. The song, I Wonder was released in 2010 and was off his album “Better In Time”. The album garnered him Juno nominations in 2011 for New Artist of the Year and Pop Album of the Year. He did not win in either category.
