Top 10 Damon songs of the 2010s

Don't know how many songs he's released this decade (must be close to 100) but there have been four Gorillaz albums (Plastic Beach, The Fall, Humans, and Now Now), Blur's Magic Whip, the solo album, that Dr Dee thing (I think), and possibly a few other bits and pieces.
So, I'd be v interested to hear people's top 10's partly because I haven't bought all the albums he's been involved with, and wonder if I've missed out on any gems...
Thanks.

Poison from 2012's Rocket Juice & the Moon is pretty beautiful.

the album as a whole is decent, but a few of the songs are too repetitive.

Apple Carts is also a gem buried on an album that few have heard

1. Pyongyang
2. Amarillo
3. On Melancholy Hill
4. Hallelujah Money
5. To Binge
6. Go Out
7. Cloud of Unknowing
8. Magic City
9. Idaho
10. The Selfish Giant

Maybe people have forgotten Under the Westway was this decade?
It's easily my favourite post-comeback Blur song, and will make my top 10 Damon 2010s list when I finally compile!

I dunno I just find it a bit boring I'm afraid - sort of sub whiter shade of pale. Fools Day is my favourite wilderness years blur song...

Having said that it did work very well at the Olympics closing gig in Hyde Park :)

About spot on Mark, I could never make a list my self, I would go mad but replace Heavy Seas of Love with Mirrorball or Saturnz Barz :) and it's an ideal list for me. I love Fathers Daughters Son so much aswell , very underrated
