Our Favorite Ten Songs of 2010

Posted in Music and other Arts by Tara Bouley on January 18, 2011

Home Slice Pizza employees are consummate music fans. Voracious is a word that’s often been used to describe our love of music. A few of us have compiled our favorite top 10 new songs of 2010 to share with you. Limiting just 10 turned out to be a cruelly difficult task for most of us. Some honorable mentions that didn’t make it into our lists include Active Child, Warpaint, Mumford and Sons, Lord Huron, Morning Benders, Kopecky Family Band, Best Coast and Janelle Monáe. Please enjoy.

    Hey Gabe, remember when Fred scratched your Imperial FFRR record? Unrest does not have balls, but I remember you were quite upset about it. I still have that scratched record.

    • Gabe said, on February 15, 2011 at 5:11 pm

      Unrest had plenty of balls. I want that record back, Chris!

        No way. I listened to it a couple weeks back. It’s still good. But then I never had any balls. That’s why I hung out with you, stud.
