MusicMonday: Favorite Songs of 2nd 1/4 of 2010

Time to slim down my list of favorite songs of the last three months so I can make a new mix CD. As usual I had way too many choices. At least a few songs (like "Retrograde" by Jemina Pearl, "Say Hello, Wave Goodbye" by Nouvelle Vague and "Hellhole Race" by Girls) could easily be cut from the list because they're from 2009. But then with some bands I just couldn't decide and included several songs.

Let me know...
