The 2009 EGGIES...Day 2

And so we move onto the second most-coveted category of the EGGIES; the Best Single of the Year.

Boasting the most intricate and arresting production of the year, Florence + The Machine's breakthrough single had it all; great swooping chorus, powerful vocals and - rare in 2009's barren pop landscape where Autotune, and not Midas, is king - a sound all its own.

The Drumming Song spent longer at #1 on my weekly charts (6 weeks compared to Rabbit Heart's mere 4), but over the course of the whole year, it was the latter which emerged triumphant.
