Megan's Top 70 of 2010: A Preface

If there's anyone around who says that 2010 was a down year for music, I'll emphatically beg to disagree. Heck, there was so much good music to be had that I'll be damned if I could whittle my list of most favorite records down much at all. Well, that and my terrible lack of decision-making skills.

You might be wondering why I went with 70. It's quite simple, really. Having lived in Richmond, and spent many many many hours driving up and down I-95, I was pleasantly surprised to notice on one of my trips back down that way, that a portion of 95 had been granted 5 extra mph under the law. As anyone who's ever been in a car with me knows, I have quite a hard time going the speed limit. So this extra boost of legal speeding made me rather happy. As do the 70 records I've chosen as my favorites of the fabulous year that was 2010.

As I'm sure you know, we here at LET don't really go for "best" when we're making our lists. So there's a lot you might see on other lists that isn't on my list. I went with what moved me the most. As for what's not on this list, I either didn't hear it (out of simple time constraints or on purpose), or didn't find it quite fit in my 70 record cap. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this here mammoth list. No license or registration needed.
