Unsun - Why

Aya of UnSun is one of the best metal vocalists today. I really love her singing in the song "Why" from UnSun's 2010 album "Clinic For Dolls".

From what I can tell, this must be a great hard-rocking Gothic metal album with a slight pop feel and a must-buy album for fans of this music genre. It's the first of their songs to reach my list of top 25 rock songs of 2010.

I just read the lyrics and think they are excellent. I'm happy UnSun made the list, and it's clear to me that 2010 was a big year for female vocalists of metal and rock bands.

Apocalyptica - Broken Pieces (feat. Lacey)

This song is so nice sounding and Lacey's singing is beautiful yet a bit haunting, which is just the way I like it.

Apocalyptica delivers with this very good song. "Broken Pieces" will be in the list of 25 best rock songs of 2010. The list is my opinion and NOT based on the music/song charts, total views on YouTube, or the number of times songs were played on the radio. Nor do I care what anyone else said or wrote about the songs. In other words, I have two ears and a brain.

Note: I am not responsible for videos, songs, or any materials that appeared with this or any of the songs with videos on YouTube as these have been uploaded to YouTube by other people and I am only using "share" on there with the purpose of identifying songs that I'm writing about and as I'm giving my opinion in connection with my own lists of 'best' rock songs. I really believe writing about songs helps to promote good bands and their songs, and sadly a lot of great songs aren't getting played on the radio these days. I hope everyone will continue to buy song downloads, music CDs, and go to concerts, and more.

Changing rock music forever and clearly in the right direction, the band Murmansk reaches my list of the 100 best rock songs (1970 to 2010) with their song "Moth". As I understand it was a single but don't know because radio stations around here don't play new songs this good these days. This is a great song though I didn't know about it until last year when I heard it on YouTube, after writing and posting my list of 25 best rock songs for the '00s decade.

So, in that way, I was wrong because I didn't know this song in time, but the list of 25 will remain the way it is and this song is just going to fly free, so to speak, and we'll have to wait and see where it lands, on the list that is. Let me add, this is a wonderful video and I love this song. Congratulations Murmansk!
