7. Charlotte Gainsbourg, “Deadly Valentine”
“Deadly Valentine” is simple in its approach: recited wedding vow text atop an airy electronic arrangement. What Charlotte Gainsbourg and producer SebastiAn create, however, is a fusion of romance, tragedy, light, and darkness…which you can dance to. It’s a track that bridges art and pop like few others this year, the crowning track on a masterpiece of an album.
