Best of 2010 - Lady Gaga to Miranda Lambert

Winter
I'm sharing my favorite songs discovered in 2010 - 6 songs a day - I'll post the entire set in a YouTube playlist on December 31.

Lady Gaga - Bad Romance
"I want your everything as long as it's free."

This spring I decided I needed to figure out who Lady Gaga was and see if she was worth the fuss.  I ended up loving this song, but she's probably not going to end up on my must buy list.

Little Big Town - Lean Into It
"If there's a way to fight, I know I'm going to find it."

Little Big Town reminds of Fleetwood Mac and the Eagles - great harmonies.

Mary Chapin Carpenter - I Have a Need for Solitude
"I like the sound of silence coming on."

I finally saw Mary Chapin Carpenter in concert this year - it was well worth the heat.  I've said before that she writes and records the songs that define my life - this song is no different.

Melody Gardot - Who Will Comfort Me
"My soul is wearying"

I actually heard this song at Jazzercise one week.  It was the perfect cool down song and it stayed in my head for days until I finally tracked a copy down.

Mindy Gledhill - Whole Wide World
"I'm gonna live a crazy dream, as impossible as it seems."

An artist from my home state, such a beautiful voice.  This song has a wonderful message.

Miranda Lambert - The House That Built Me
"These handprints on the front step are mine"

The first time I heard this song I cried - serious tears.  After listing to it a lot I still find myself tearing up with each listen. Pin It

I just bought The Age of Miracles on iTunes off the back of your recommendation. Thanks Jamie!

There are lots of artists I just don't know on your lists. It will take me awhile to get to them all. I do love the photographs on each post, though! Almost enough for me to appreciate winter--but not quite!
