Top Songs of 2010 Pt. 2

I hope you all enjoyed part one of my favorite songs of 2010. This post focuses on songs by artists who broke through in 2010. Some may have been around previously, but they didn't come through as much as they did this year. Enjoy!!

Just the Way You Are by Bruno Mars
Well hello Bruno Mars! You sure made your mark on 2010. Not only did Bruno have two hit songs of his own, he also lent his nice voice to "Billionaire" and "Nothin on You", and co-wrote Cee Lo Green's "F*ck You" from my previous post. This song has to be on the top 10 list for most overplayed this year, but I still LOVE it every time I hear it. The music video is pretty cute too! Never actually seen it before I posted it here :)

Grenade by Bruno Mars
Seriously, Bruno Mars really put himself on the map in 2010. Following up his smash hit (featured above), he released his second AMAZING single. Kudos to your amazing year Bruno Mars (minus that little arrest of yours). Hope to hear much more from you in 2011!!!

Billionaire by Travie McCoy
I really like this song. Seriously who doesn't wanna be a billionaire so freaking bad?!? Entry # 3 that features Bruno Mars by the way. Travie McCoy is pretty good too though ( who by the way was in Gym Class Heroes for those who didn't know).

All Roads Lead Home by Golden State
Well apparently this song is actually from 2008, but since I just discovered it this year I am including it in this list. Seriously, seriously LOVE IT!!!!

Airplanes by B.O.B featuring Haley Williams

Another one of my favorite songs this year!! Also love the remix that features Eminem. B.O.B also had a pretty good year. He had a hit with, who else, Bruno Mars with "Nothin On You" and also "Magic". Hope to hear more from you in 2011 also B.O.B.!!!

Need You Now by Lady Antebellum

Well this little country group sure did blow up this year didn't they. This song was played on every station this summer. Top 40, country, adult contemporary, etc. They also walked away with many awards this year, mainly for this song. Love this one along with their previous one "I Run To You" and their new one "Hello World". I also love the fact that both the males and female sing leads in this group. I will be waiting for more from them also!

If I Die Young by The Band Perry

I actually first heard this song on one of the lovely blogs that I follow and fell in love with it. Kind of a sad little tune, but still pretty great. My favorite lyric "A penny for my thoughts, oh no I'll sell em for a dollar. They're worth so much more after I'm a goner. And maybe then you'll hear the words I've been singing. Funny when you're dead, how people start listening."

There you have it. My favorite songs from 2010's Breakout Artists. I am aware that little Justin Bieber was also huge, but I would have to give the award for Breakout Artist of the year to Bruno Mars!!! What were some of your favorite songs from new artists this year??

Stay tuned to the next installment, my favorite songs from veteran artists!!
