The 200 Best Tracks of the Decade So Far (Pitchfork)


What's the best music of our time? Which are the songs that will be remembered as iconic soundtrack of the 2010s? Half decade almost done, Pitchfork compiled a list with 200 Best Tracks of the Decade So Far. In it you can find many usual pupils of the American web publication, already celebrated in the annual charts, like Grimes (#1 song of 2012), Ariel Pink (#1 in 2010), M83 (#1 in 2011) and Drake (#1 in 2013).
"Every time we pause to look at the last however many years of music, things seem stranger and harder to pin down. Not the music itself, necessarily, but rather how it reaches us and finds its way into our lives. In 2010, Pitchfork had been regularly using Twitter for just over a year. Streaming music was around but was a minor concern. Smart phones weren't something you took for granted. All of these changes and many more have altered how we experience music, but one thing is certain: great songs never stop coming. Five years on, to mark the half-decade, here are 200 of our staff's favorites".
Go to Pitchfork for full notes about each song, and listen to the 185 tracks I found on Spotify in the following playlist.

Enjoy!
