Let’s Talk: What was your favourite music from the 2010s?


Written by:

After having a little time to myself after work, I decided to do a little insatiable digging and scouring into the past works and creations of what we saw in terms of music in the 2010s.

After an unwilling acceptance of enjoying chart music a little too much when I was younger, I thoroughly enjoyed the pump-it-loud electronica r’n’b music of Black Eyed Peas, bleary-eyed MIKA and eventually my evolution of indie music with Foster The People’s Pumped Up Kicks.

I always love venturing down a music wormhole of past pleasantries and gander into what my music tastes used to be like during my childhood.

And by God, how much has it changed. Now, I have no idea who enters the charts at one point during the week. It’s a world of unknown and now, a minimal disdain for all things popular music. Bleurgh.

What are your favourites of the 2010s?

      Sonic Highways and Suburbs are a no-brainer for me. Fantastic concept work and overall talented folks with albums to suit. I love the list, my friend!

        I’ve always enjoyed concept albums. I think Dave and company should get lots of credit for how they wrote Sonic Highways.

        If I had to pick only one from my list, it would be Coheed’s Unheavenly Creatures. I’m still playing it a ton.

        They put out a single last year that I can’t get out of my head. It’s a sequel to Rick Springfield’s Jessie’s Girl.

        Oh haha that’s brilliant. An oddly satisfying end to the story of Jessie’s Girl. Their virtuous operatic rock concept albums have always stood out from the crowd. I recently got into them when Shoulders appeared on my Spotify’s recommended, and I should definitely revisit some of their old works.

    Right? That sequel is such a catchy song. It was totally worth the $1.29 on Itunes. I haven’t read any of their graphic novels upon which the albums are based (all but one), but to me it doesn’t matter. Their stuff rocks.

    Shoulders eh? I can’t say that I know of this band. I’ll look them up.

    Hollywood Park was perhaps my favourite album of 2020. For that album, I had to read the accompanying book. What a story.

      Oh wow, that’s such a compelling story in regards to The Airborne Toxic Event. I must invest time into the book itself aswell as the album catalogue. What a lovely twist to favourite albums of 2020.

    I forgot that Shoulders was Coheed’s new single. That’s what happens when I’m commenting at 11pm.
