Hywel, Don't Read This: The Best of 2010 Playlist

I was prompted by a friend to make a playlist summarizing the albums on my Best of 2010 list. I spent a lot of time on this, choosing not necessarily the most representative nor the best songs from each album, but I tried to make a cohesive statement that incorporated all 16 albums. I cheated on one, but it was worth it, and the song I used still came out in 2010. In case you want to make it.
