Not too bad - I might even make this a regular playlist.

Should this be a chain of sorts, if we can keep it? If you have an artist on the previous person's 10, start your list with that...

For me:

Orange Juice - Moscow Olympics
Junior Boys - Birthday
The Wrens - Everyone Choose Sides
Slowdive - Some Velvet Morning
Lifetime - Boy's No Good
The Hold Steady - Don't Let Me Explode
The Knife - Heartbeats (Onemusic Session version)
XTC - Making Plans for Nigel
Band of Horses - The Funeral
Talking Heads - Nothing But Flowers
