* From Radio Indigo's year-end programming
There are lists and there are more, of the top songs of 2010 and the decade that just passed us by. While the Billboards, Rolling Stones et al have their own, RadioAndMusic.com asked Radio Indigo to share the list of songs it played out as part of its in-depth, extensive year-ender international music programming, and we're happy to share the list of the top 100 songs of 2010.
From Radio Indigo.
And their source?
As an official Radio Indigo spokesperson said, The lists have been arrived at by our Music head through multiple inputs like research, sales info from labels, the popularity charts around the world, the internet, and the songs' popularity on Radio Indigo....
A good thing is, this is one of the rare stations that mainlines on international music, and the lists they've come up with do sound like an honest, no-string-attached effort (OK, labels, react).
Important to note: The top song of 2010, which is Katy Perry's California Gurls, was voted for by Radio Indigo listeners, in an online poll.
Essentially, this list is like a ready reckoner for the international music lover. Do you have the best songs of the decade? Missed out on something? Check this list out. And if any really serious International Music Lover has their own list of the top 100 for 2010, go ahead, share it with us. We'll take it to the huge community that mainlines on RadioAndMusic.com. And music labels, please give us your feedback.
