I've avoided posting on this thread for awhile because it is SO hard to choose a top 10, but I've decided I'll finally give it a go.

No particular order:

On Melancholy Hill
Empire Ants
To Binge
O Spirit Animate Us
Heavy Seas of Love
Father Daughter's Son
Pyongyang
Ticker Tape
Kansas
Souk Eye

I think this is what his top 10 songs of this decade are... maybe? I feel like this list could change in the next ten minutes, let alone days and weeks from now! Really speaks to both the quality and quantity of Damon's work. I'm hoping that in a year's time I'd have some GBQ songs on this list, as I'm really looking forward to that new record. I wonder if it will be Damon's final record of this decade... there's really no telling.

Many thanks for the responses to this.
I hadn't even heard of quite a few including Father's Daughter's Son which is a beauty.
Inspired, perhaps, by J Farnham's soft-rock classic, You're The Voice?

In no particular order:
Heavy Seas of Love
Thought I Was A Spaceman
Pyongyang
Broken
Melancholy Hill
Submission
She's My Collar
Fools Day
To Binge
Some Kind of Nature
There Are Too Many Of Us
Let Me Out

Sorry I know that's 11, but I couldn't leave any more out, it already hurt not to have Andromeda, My Terracotta Heart, Apple Cart, Ghost Ship and Mirror Ball (perhaps Blur's most underrated song) off the list.
