I thought there would be almost as many EOD 2010s lists as EOY 2019 lists, but apparently not. Therefore, I will loose up the EOD criteria a bit.
Henrik, do you want I should compile all the non-included songs list here so you can more easily determine eligibility?

I suppose it's odd seeing "About a Girl" shoot up high, probably because it only became really popular due to a live version from 1994.
