|Why 2011 will be remembered|
These are 40 highlights of last year off the top of my head. No particular ranking unless it says SOTY of course. =] What were some of your highlights of 2011?
Same Old Trip
Probably has my most plays of every 2011 song in my Itunes.
Classic Red, so goddamn catchy.
|3||Fair to Midland|
Amarillo Sleeps Under My Pillow
Song of the year for me. So many different sounds and music styles in one song. And it fucking works.
IMO some of Black Thought's best rapping ever.
|5||Cage the Elephant|
A very different way to kick off their latest album, too bad they didn't follow through and the album just becomes indie-wannabe garbage.
Hats Off to the Bull
Chorus = Sex
Don't Play No Games That I Can't Win
Santigold helps the Beastie Boys make the grooviest song of 2011.
Surprisingly effective hard rock song from a band I never really took too seriously until this year.
Niggas In Paris
Kanye is the man...no...questions...hands...down. His verse in this is classic, stfu if you don't like it.
No reason in hell I should like this, but I will sing my heart out to it every time it comes on.
I'm Canadian, this song sounds very Canadian, Sam Roberts looks even more like someone from Lord of the Rings. I'm down.
Cannot...stop...tapping my feet to the drumbeat.
1:14 - 1:46: Mastodon ceases to be merely a band and becomes an actual roaring Mastodon. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mastodon = proof
Bring It Back
Oh how I wanted to hate this song and his shitty rapping soooo much, why does this have so many plays?!?!?!
Song starts off kinda average tbh (even as a Chevelle fan). 3:21 hits..."Wtf have I been asleep the whole time, when did this song become this good? Is it still on 'The Meddler'? Wtf, omg omg this is amazinggggg!"
Infectious, srry sputnik
This should have ended the album, it has such a bittersweet feel to it.
Cameras / Good Ones Go Interlude
Make sure your bass is maxed for this song.
Deviant made me do it. Can't say I'm a fan of dubstep but this song was worth looking into this.
Weird seeing this on a list given what's already preceded it.
|25||The Black Keys|
Gold on the Ceiling
Letting Go (ft. Sarah Green)
shattuuppp, it's good
This is the kind of song that makes me re-think my life.
Make Me a Believer
2:04 - 2:19: My personal favorite moment of music this year. This part made me jump outta mah chair.
"Go back to doing stuff with Defto...oh alright okay I'll let it pass for now" :]
Be Still and Know
Perhaps the one song on here staff members on this site might not be aware of.
|33||Born of Osiris|
Perhaps the only song on the new album that stuck with me. It was IMO the most forgettable album of the year, but this song? Yeah...
|37||And So I Watch You From Afar|
Gang (Starting Never Stopping)
|38||Hetfield & Hetfield|
Pretty good from a very underground band.
Heard this song come on...knew it would be a great album.
|40||Cage the Elephant|
