M&T Best Tracks of 2010: #1

#1. Broken Social Scene-“World Sick”

And now for the other moment you’ve been waiting for…our favorite track of the year. And the honors go to none other than Kevin Drew and his band of merry gentlemen (and woman), Broken Social Scene. We featured BSS previously on our Best Albums list and its no shocker that this giant of a record produced one of the catchiest and most powerful songs of the year. BSS are no strangers to political and social commentary, especially on this record (see: “Texico Bitches”, “Forced to Love”) and “World Sick” is the defining track on this album. When it comes down to it, Drew just wonders why we all just can’t be friends. “I get world sick every time I take a stand/Well, I get world sick, my love is for my man.” The cymbal crashes, swooping guitars, and the fade-in and fade-out all contribute to making this the epic (and most fitting) track of 2010.

So from all of us here at M&T, we’d like to thank you for a great first few months, it’s been a blast. But we’re just getting started, so buckle up and hold on to your butts because 2011 is comin’ in hot.
