Hot Chip - Flutes vs. Death Grips - Hacker
Charli XCX - You're the One vs. Melody's Echo Chamber - I Follow You (my nominee)
Adele - Skyfall vs. My Bloody Valentine - Only Tomorrow (closer than I thought it would be...Skyfall might be Adele's best song)
Nick Cave - Higgs Boson Blues vs. David Bowie - The Stars (Are Out Tonight)
Kacey Musgraves - Follow Your Arrow vs. Laura Marling - Master Hunter
Daft Punk - Giorgio by Moroder vs. Daft Punk ft. Julian Casablancas - Instant Crush
Nils Frahm - Says vs. Clean Bandit - Rather Be
Angel Olsen - White Fire vs. Swans - A Little God in My Hands

Giorgio by Moroder, Says, and A Little God in My Hands are all top 100 songs for the decade for me.

Hot Chip - Flutes
2 of my favorite songs of the decade. Flutes ranks too high to be toppled but Hacker is the best burst of random crazy mayhem of recent memory.

Melody's Echo Chamber - I Follow You

My Bloody Valentine - Only Tomorrow

Nick Cave - Higgs Boson Blues)

Laura Marling - Master Hunter

Daft Punk ft. Julian Casablancas - Instant Crush
Have I already ranted how much I dislike this album ? ;)

Clean Bandit - Rather Be

Angel Olsen - White Fire
2 great songs too, going with the great Leonard Cohen sound alike.

10. Hot Chip - Flutes. v. 1. Death Grips - Hacker As improbable as it seems, all I'd heard by DG before this tourney was Steroids, which is nothing more than masochism. After hearing Hacker for the first time, I had to check out the rest of The Money Store, then Exmilitary, which are both staggering, disturbing, raucous in their entirety but they don't compare with MC Ride demanding you name sandwiches after him.

8. Melody's Echo Chamber - I Follow You v. 16. Charli XCX - You're the One

11. Adele - Skyfall v. 13. My Bloody Valentine - Only Tomorrow

4. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds - Higgs Boson Blues v. 14. David Bowie - The Stars (Are Out Tonight)

9. Kacey Musgraves - Follow Your Arrow v. 5. Laura Marling - Master Hunter

12. Daft Punk - Giorgio by Moroder v. 15. Daft Punk feat. Julian Casablancas - Instant Crush

6. Nils Frahm - Says v. 3. Clean Bandit feat. Jess Glynne - Rather Be If the masterminds behind Rockabye teamed up with the doyenne of advert soundtracks today, I'd sooner bathe my head in bleach than listen to the result. Rather Be, though, glides with a light touch, even among the violin strokes, refusing to be burdened too much by meaning yet still feeling like mature pop. This is in part owing to Glynne's voice, which here is still imbued with genuine wonder that shines through, no matter how many times you've heard it. Meanwhile, Says improved on second listen, particularly now I'm struck by resemblances of its synth line to Le vent nous portera.

7. Angel Olsen - White Fire v. 2. Swans - A Little God in My Hands Not yet warmed to the rest of To Be Kind but this junkyard blues still stands out as part of the album and on its own.
