Got a road trip coming up, 30-hour round trip, so I'm coming up with some playlists. My top-50 Kanye West songs playlist is done (and definitive). Now I'm working on the top 100 songs of the 2010s so far -- the first five years of the current decade. It's impossible to make this list without missing out on/forgetting something so have a think and help me out. What are your top songs of the 2010s so far?

Thanks! Some great songs here, definitely a few that will be on my list. Trying to keep it to two songs per artist. With The Menzingers I'm thinking Gates and Mexican Guitars. Came Out Swinging (plus Local Man Ruins Everything -- choosing two TWY songs was really hard), Latch, Little Talks and Riptide will definitely be on there. For Gaslight Anthem I was thinking Bring It On and maybe even Too Much Blood, that was my favourite from Handwritten. Against Me I'd go with True Trans Soul Rebel; The Wire for Haim; Royals and Tennis Court for Lorde.
A few I hadn't thought of so cheers. I do like that Ed Sheeran song even though I'm not a huge fan of his.

This is a great list. We'll have some songs the same. Plenty of artists the same at least (Japandroids' Younger Us and House Heaven Built will be on there). I like how you went with Only In My Dreams. It's better than Round and Round imo. For Girls, Vomit is in contention for my number one.

As I said above I have gone with a rule, two songs per artist plus one for side projects. So, for example, two Gaslight songs and one Horrible Crowes. Probably going to break my own made-up rule to include ****** in Paris and Otis (plus two Kanye songs). One can count as a Jay Z side project haha.

Will post my list when I come up with 100. Getting close. Can probably round it out with a few songs which aren't out yet. I have until the end of October.

I'm thinking Runaway is definitely going to be up there. Climax and House Heaven Built will be in there, probably Some Nights too. Bon Iver I'll probably go with Holocene and Calgary. If I have a La Dispute song it'd definitely be King Park.

I'm being biased toward more popular songs just because for a road trip some of the guys could start complaining if too many songs they don't know are coming on.

Heading from a rural town in South Australia where I live, a couple hours northwest of Adelaide called Kadina, to Sydney to catch up with an old friend. Have only seen him once since I was in his wedding two years ago.
