idobi’s Top Songs of the 2010s

Remember that song that played all summer ’13 for you? What about that one that got you through that breakup and made you who you are today? Or that song you played on repeat ’til your neighbors called the cops? Music has always been the soundtrack to our staff’s lives and now they’re telling us the songs that defined their decade. It’s a tough choice, we know—so tell us what you think should make the list!

“1901” – Phoenix (2010)

This one dropped at the start of the decade and was in everyone’s heavy rotation for at least 2-3 summers. It brings back a lot of memories for me, fresh out of college and ready to take on the world.
