Una década de música (2010-2019): las 100 mejores canciones

Termino mis resúmenes sobre la música de los últimos 10 años compartiendo las que considero sus mejores canciones. No son, de forma objetiva, las más importantes, ya que eso es algo que el tiempo tiene que encargase de juzgar. Tampoco son el resultado de buscar una representación justa y equilibrada de todos los géneros, que es algo que las listas consensuadas de los principales medios periodísticos deben tratar de conseguir. Es una lista completamente personal y libre, donde mis grupos de cabecera están lógicamente muy representados, sin atender a ninguna clase de paridad. Pero es innegable que todas estas canciones, con independencia del éxito que consiguieran o de su nivel de difusión, merecen todo mi agradecimiento, por existir, por formar una parte muy importante de mi vida. Espero que, una vez (re)escuchadas, también de la de todos ustedes.
