As I sit here prepping this post, I noticed something odd, or not odd perhaps. My top 5 consists of a Brit and 4 Canadians. Not much bias on this blog. My Top 5, in no particular order.
5 “Recovery” by Frank Turner
4 “So Blind” by David Myles
3 “I Was a Fool” by Tegan and Sara
2 “Red Hands” by Walk Off the Earth
1 “What I Wouldn’t Do” by Serena Ryder
Today we post the first 5 of my Top 10 for 2013. The Canadian content in this group consists of a great song by Donovan Woods. The Wire is likely the poppiest tune I have posted (or will post) but it is very catchy and becoming a huge hit. Having said that, some “purists” will contest John Mayer being on any list. I am a huge fan of his and greatly appreciate his abilities as both a songwriter and as an excellent guitarist. Both are highlighted in Wildfire. Enjoy!
10 “The Wire” by Haim
9 “Rumble and Sway” by Jamie N Common
8 “Wildfire” by John Mayer
7 “Put On, Cologne” by Donovan Woods
6 “Unbelievers” by Vampire Weekend
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
