Top Songs of 2010 Pt. 3

Well my lovely readers, today's post will feature my remaining favorite songs of the year. This post will focus on songs by artists who have been around a little while, but still manage to put out amazing hits!

Love the Way You Lie by Eminem ft. Rhianna

When I first heard this song I was just thinking "eh that's ok". The more I heard it the more I loved it! Living in Michigan, you hear Eminem a lot so that means I love it A LOT!!!! Eminem's angsty, angry voice paired with Rhianna's nice, sweet vocals sound great together. These two need to collaborate again in the near future for sure! Many people were complaining about the video and the song saying that it promotes domestic violence, but I am pretty sure some people will find anything and everything Eminem does offensive. Be sure to check out Love The Way You Lie pt. 2 by Rhianna featuring Eminem too!!

Not Afraid by Eminem

Honestly I downloaded this song onto my Ipod when I heard it because I love me some Eminem, but didn't listen to it too often. Shortly after I saw him perform it on the MTV VMA's and realized how good of a song it really was. My favorite lyric: "And I just can't keep living this way. So starting today, I'm breaking out of this cage. I'm standing up, Imma face my demons. I'm manning up Imma hold my ground. I've had enough, now I'm so fed up. Time to put my life back together right now".

Times Like These by Kid Rock

Like I mentioned previously, I'm from Michigan. Therefore, I love celebs that are from Michigan and aren't afraid to admit it. Like Eminem, Kid Rock is loyal to his hometown. This song is definitely Michigan's current anthem. When I saw the above performance on the AMA's I had to rewind it a couple of times just to look at all the pictures in the background again and actually listen to the words. Great song! Especially for fellow Michiganders! If you watch the video, you will see a picture that says "God, Help us Save Flint". Let me tell you, being that I work in Flint it definitely needs saving by someone! Amazing song!!!

Back to December by Taylor Swift

I will be honest. I love Taylor Swift music. I am aware it all kind of sounds the same, but I love it anyways. Rumor has it this song is about her breakup with Taylor Lautner. I was actually upset to hear they broke up since they were so cute together. Listening to the lyics of this song, it seems as if she is the one that ended it. All I can say is "Are you fricking crazy girl?!?!" Have you seen that boys abs?!?! Oh yea, I am also glad he is actually 18 now so I don't feel like a perv for finding him attractive :)

Temporary Home by Carrie Underwood

Loved her on American Idol, and still love her all these years later. This girl puts out hit after hit and doesn't stop. This song is a little sad, and the video makes it even sadder. Perfect little country song :).

Empire State of Mind by Jay-Z ft. Alicia Keys

Well I love me some New York City and this is the pefect little anthem for it. Of course Frank Sinatra also had a great anthem, but I guess all these years later it was time for another one. Jay-Z did a great job with this one. I want to go back to New York every time I hear this song. (I know this song is technically from 2009, but I really don't care :) ).

Young Forever by Jay-Z

Am I wrong or didn't Jay-Z retire a couple years ago? I love how musicians and athletes call it "retiring" when they want a break for a year or two. Well that little break seems to have helped Jay-Z since he put out hit after hit in the past year or so. Not that he wasn't putting out hits before then, but the two songs I've posted are on my top favorites list of his for sure! He really seems to like using black and white in his videos doesn't he? Love this song because really, who doesn't want to be forever young? The older I get, the more I miss the days when I was younger. "May the best of your todays be the worst of your tomorrows". LOVE IT!!

Once again, 2010 was a great year for music, in my opinion. The newbies and the vets both had an amzing year! My wish for music in 2011...Justin Timberlake release another album. I know you're all into the acting now JT, but seriously you know how to make a hit too!
