50 Songs from 2011

Here's a Spotify playlist of 50 songs I found myself listening to and enjoying in 2011. Most of them were released/rereleased in 2011, also. I won't say they're the "best" songs of 2011. I'm sure there's a ton of stuff I forgot to put on there. It was hard keeping it to 50. It could have easily been 500. Listening to music is really important to me. I have a pretty dull day job but it allows me to listen to music all day and that's what keeps me sane. It was, in many ways, one of the shittiest years in a loooong time, so I'm very happy that so many artists are making such great music.

You should be able to listen to all 50 songs HERE
