“I am mullet-progeny Miley Cyrus and in 2011 I was totally on the telly loads instead of making music so let’s forget all about my dodgy birdcage video, shall we? Here’s a Miley FACT: You know that if you type in ‘Miley Cyprus’ in to Wikipedia it goes STRAIGHT TO ME? I call that ‘conflict resolution’. Am I a UN ambassador yet? If so I hope it won’t interfere with my upcoming starring role in the major motion picture LOL: Laughing Out Loud.”

I’m sure it won’t Miley. Let’s have a look at entries #20-#11:

20. Rihanna ft Calvin Harris – ‘We Found Love’

RiRi is in the bath with her Docs on. That’s an extreme measure, especially when taking a hammer to them will usually do just fine.

19. Gotye ft. Kimbra – ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’

New to me! Video features a indie schmindie dude in the buff who could be either Gotye or Kimbra but whoever it is they could do with a haircut (I need a haircut myself so I know what I’m talking about).

18. PJ Harvey – ‘The Words That Maketh Murder’

Soldiers falling like lumps of meat! I wonder if Polly paid a visit to erstwhile carnivore sanctuary St John before composing this cheerful ditty. Try the sweetbreads, they’re delicious.

17. Emeli Sandé – ‘Heaven’

Not a DJ Sammy cover alas. Instead there’s more than a whiff of ‘Unfinished Sympathy’ about this tune, i.e. it is quite good.

16. Pistol Annies – ‘Hell On Heels’

Miranda Lambert has acquired some chums who are just as drunk as she is, and the results are excellent.

15. Adele – ‘Rolling In The Deep’

Well, it had to be in here somewhere, didn’t it? Here’s the Jamie xx remix which someone nominated instead:

14. Katy B – ‘Broken Record’

Plenty of love for Katy B all over the place including your votes. This track has come out the top of her five (5) nominations in this poll and weirdly enough does NOT feature a dubstep breakdown.

13. Diddy/Dirty Money ft Swizz Beats – ‘Ass on the Floor’

Also known as “WhennyrrinnurclurrbgeyerrASSonnafloor”, this is epic even by Last Train To Paris standards. Despite the title it is not really about The Club at all as Diddy promptly scarpers from the dancefloor in hot pursuit of a Mystery Lady.

12. Labrinth ft. Tinie Tempah – ‘Earthquake’

This partnership was the other way around for most of 2010 but now Tinie has returned the favour. Stick with the video until 2.23 where Labrinth and his Jedi clones do a bit of choral evensong for your listening pleasure.

11. LMFAO ft. Lauren Bennett & Goonrock – ‘Party Rock Anthem’

Sometimes big pop hits are undeniable! Sometimes everybody appears to be shuffling! Sometimes one cannot apologise for party rocking. In any case, earlier this year I turned on 4Music for the first time in about 6 months and this was the first song that I encountered = SIGNIFICANT.

Top 10 tomorrow!
