As usual, compiled using my own skewed sense of logic as to what constitutes a UK single release. And Gossip, because it was just too good not to include. They released in it Germany! It has a video! Fuck you.

All this is, of course, basically irrelevant, because the best song of the year is Man Down by Rihanna, but you never know, maybe that'll win next year.

Thanks for reading.

EDIT (03/12/11):

Egregious omissions from this list, for a variety of reasons, in ascending order of favourability:

Lights On (feat. Ms. Dynamite) - Katy B
Riverside - Agnes Obel
Perfect Stranger - Katy B & Magnetic Man
Believer (feat. Wynter Gordon) - Freemasons
Katy on a Mission - Katy B
Love Part II - Bright Light Bright Light
White Light Moment - Tove Styrke
Night Air - Jamie Woon

The embarrassingly high quality of all these omissions shames me - the top five here would all challenge for the top twenty, and the top three would all beat down my original number one.

    Telephone is at 81? What sort of pop fan are you?!

    Because it's so long, or because it's all wrong?
