Year in Music: K. Flay's Top 10 of 2010

– These New Puritans, "We Want War" video. Slow motion videos can either be awesome or insanely awesome. "We Want War" is the latter.
Girl Talk, All Day. We played this a bunch on tour and it made me feel like I didn't have a job but also would never need one. Which is probably one of the top ten life scenarios of 2010.
– Liz Phair at The Independent, October 10, 2010. Liz Phair > egg sandwiches. No, really.
