Yesterday we revealed our 2010 Music Retrospective, which looked at the most streamed tracks and albums on Spotify this past year. Today we have a series of playlists where labels and some of our music staff pick their favourite tracks of 2010 are.

Our best of 2010 playlists include:

Enjoy and be sure to let us know what your best of 2010 list is!


  1. I HATE when you see

  2. @Daemonmonkey:
    If you understood Spotify’s role in the music industry then you would understand that DRM is not under their control, they are forced to restrict certain songs in certain places because that’s what the record labels specify.

    So spamming your hate fuelled messages on a page that had nothing to do with them is not helping anyone.

    Back on topic:
    Playlists are great, thank you :)

  3. From Stockholm, Sweden:

    Dont miss the weekly Thursday list! 1h of exceptional tunes, updated every Thursday. Always cool,never mainstream, often new and always designed to make your weekend better. Soon played in the best bars and clubs in town…

    W.50: This weeeks theme is loungeified, electrified and comfy groovy.


  4. I have always had a problem with “best of” kind of lists. They contain songs from all genres, and there’s no way of filtering out genres that I simply don’t like. Spotify, if you read this, please add a column of genre to the songs and let us sort/filter by that column. (another useful column for each list would be its popularity (available in the search results but not in lists)).
    Thanks in advance

  5. In my opinion you shouldn’t simply ignore a song because of its genre. Every genre should have something you like.

  6. finetunes best of 2010 – House/Electronic
