Steve’s “Best Tracks of the First 1/3 of the Decade” List

April 30th, 2012

As of today, we are officially 1/3 through the decade that will undoubtedly end up being known as “The Teens” (where did the time go?). So here’s my “Best Tracks of the First 1/3 of the Decade” List.  As usual, I’ve excluded S-Curve artists from contention, but Andy Grammer’s “Keep You Head Up,” We The Kings; “Friday Is Forever,” Betty Wright’s “Go” and Joss Stone’s “The Love We Had” were all pretty awesome, in my opinion….
