Top 200 tracks of 2010s

Presenting:  My top 200 tracks of the decade. Made this a while back and whittled it down from a list of 305 or so, and added a few from 2019 in there. I'm sure I'm missing/overlooking a ton. It's been an insanely luxurious decade filled with more music than anyone could logically consume/process/remember, but these are all songs that I've kept returning to throughout the decade. It'd be a fool's errand, not to mention highly tedious, to even try to rank them, plus I think it's way more interesting to look at an alphabetical listing as a snapshot in time rather than fuss over omission and ranking and inclusion and hierarchies and all that. Decades are way too big to sort out without an amount of spare time and analytical framework that I simply do not possess. So here's my simple rules

-Released between 2010 and 2019
- One song per artist (this is easily the hardest work. Does not include when an artist guests on a track or is in more than one band)
- In rare instances, I've listed both a popular song and a defining remix of it alongside each other as supplements to the enjoyment of one another (you gotta have a cheat)
