Best Albums of the Decade - Addi's Version

>> Thursday, December 31, 2009

This is a list I did NOT want to do. Remembering how hard it was to do my best albums of all time, and on top of that, realizing how much I want to change on that list. But, considering that I could not stop writing this list in my head, I figured I would just bite the bullet. This was actually easier than I thought it was going to be, surprisingly. I hope you enjoy. (Reminder, this is my personal list, not a categorical list).

I apologize, I have decieded to include youtube clips rather than reveiws. They are awesome clips, some live, some videos, some acoustic, but they will take a bit to load.

Ok, their are 50 videos below. I would love if you watched them all, but I realize that would be silly, and only I would do that. So, here are my quick recommendations on which videos you should watch based on quality of clip alone.

Howie Day "Sorry So Sorry" Live
Slow Club "It Doesn't Have to be Beautiful" one of my favorite music videos of the year.
fun. "All the Pretty Girls" music video
The Dodos "Fools" live
The Temper Trap "Fader" music video
Paolo Nutini "Last Request" live
Cold War Kids "We Used To Vacation" live and acoustic
Secondhand Serenade "Its Not Over" live and acoustic
Justin Nozuka "Save Him" live
Why? "A Sky For Shoeing Horses Under" amazing music video.
Atmosphere "Guarantees" music video
Arcade Fire "Wake Up" live
