'Round and Round' Gets Song of the Year named the ultra-chillwave track 'Round and Round' by Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti the Song of the Year for 2010. Now, don't get me wrong, the song is hypnotically catchy, but there were some great efforts out there from many artists that don't dress like bejeweled cell phone covers. It may be that I'm getting old when almost any band's attempt at uniqueness comes off as silly and trite. Listen and decide for yourself. Is this the best song of the year? And also, isn't the lead singer channeling Kurt Cobain a bit too much?

  1. First why does she sound like David Bowie? Oh wait, I just realized she has a beard. Any song with a phone ring in it deserves automatic disqualification. It's not, stab me in the ear awful, but I wouldn't download it.
