20 of My Favorite Songs from 2011!

Here's an end of the year playlist featuring some of the songs I enjoyed listening to the most in 2011. This by no means is any sort of ranking (some of my favorites weren't even available to add). One thing that irks me about ranking "best of" or "top songs" is when people get upset if you include mainstream music. While I agree that the majority of things played on standard radio is awful, there are some good songs in the mix. Just because someone gets popular (Adele, Bon Iver, etc.), doesn't mean you can't give credit where credit is due. So many of my memories are attached to songs that are overplayed. While in many ways it can kill its likability at the time, down the road, it keeps memories alive when you randomly hear it inside a store, at a party, etc. Popular music isn't all evil. I'm really grateful that I listened to the radio a lot when I was growing up, attending high school and even into college. I consider it a bridge that can take you to memory lane.

  1. 4 songs I think you missed...Adele - Rolling In The Deep...Train-Marry Me...and I know you don't like country but my absolute favorite song of the year was Jason Aldean - Dirt Road Anthem (please listen to it at least once!!) and The Band Perry won loads of awards for If I Die Young. Fun list though :-)

I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. I’m engaged to the love of my lifetimes and we look forward to starting our next chapter together. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
