A Decade Under The Influence


The votes are in!

Last week, with a tasty voucher for Golden Discs worth 25 big ones (Euros) on offer, I asked YOU to name a favourite song from the years 2010-2019 (this was mine.

You answered in your tens appropriately.

But there could be only one winner:

Third Place:

Myth by Beach House

Jonboy writes:

While there’s loads of brilliant songs, particularly from the first half of the decade, I would have to say the objectively correct answer is Beach House – Myth. It’s the kind of song where you can fall in love with someone on the drive home.

Runner up:

I Can’t Give Everything Away By David Bowie

What a beautiful and sad way to say goodbye to the world. Ends the album and his life story beautifully


Heart Is A Drum by Beck

Rosette of Sirius writes:

Midway thru the decade, Beck released what I believe to be his magnum opus. I am of course referring to Morning Phase. On that album, a track called Heart is a Drum stood out to me. As a track, it’s tight yet airy and warm. It’s melodic and has wonderful rhythm. It’s harmonies are syrupy and with its mellow but distinctive stringed bass, it’s a track (and album) I can’t stop playing. It’s also a piece of music imo that was made for vinyl. Or vice versa…Love it.

Thanks all.

      Thanks Nick! I bagged me a new TT from Santa this year to get back in the vinyl game and find myself stocking up on all the classics as well as a few must haves from modern times. This will go down a treat. Spirit of Eden from Talk Talk is next on the list so that’s where the voucher will go!

    Congratulations, @Rosette of Sirius!
