The folks over at MTV News have been counting down their favorite songs of the year, and they have just unveiled their number six pick as Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own.” The track which appears on Robyn’s new album Body Talk was just nominated for a “Best Dance Recording” GRAMMY and recently closed out an intense episode of the CW’s Gossip Girl. “I don’t know why this song wasn’t the biggest hit of 2010, honestly,” explains MTV’s Jim Cantiello. “It’s like the perfect pop song.” Watch more of the MTV News staff comment on why they chose to include Robyn in their Top 10.
MTV isn’t the only outlet to include Robyn on a best of 2010 countdown. Spinner, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Spin, New York Magazine and NPR have all deemed Body Talk one of this year’s favorites. “As her stilettos stomped across broken glass, the Swedish former teen star outclassed all comers, pairing soaring synths, thundering drums and emotion-soaked lyrics, showing sympathy for Britney-esque fembots and declaring her indestructible independence,” declares Spinner.com. “Body Talk is epic pop for epic times. Get on board. Buckle up.”
