My favorite songs of 2011

5 Jan

I’m sure I missed a ton of great music, but here goes:

1. “June Hymn” – The Decemberists

2. “Sorry 4 the Wait” – Lil Wayne

3. “Black” – Danger Mouse & Daniele Luppi

4. “Rise to Me” – The Decemberists

5. “Go” – Santigold Feat. Karen O

6. “Lonely Boy” – Black Keys

7. “Bedroom Eyes” – Dum Dum Girls

8. “Lost in my Mind” – The Head and the Heart (technically 2010, sorry)

9. “Everything You See (Kids Say Hallelujah)” – Portugal. The Man

10. “Stop Stop” – Black Keys

11. “All Your Light (Times Like These)” – Portugal. The Man

12. “Gold on the Ceiling” – Black Keys

13. “Scale it Back” – DJ Shadow

14. “Cruel” – St. Vincent

15. “Holocene” – Bon Iver

16. “So American” – Portugal. The Man

Either I missed a lot of great songs or 2011 wasn’t a great year for music. 2010 was much better.

    Happy to see the Decemberists on there. What about Dawes – When My Time Comes? It’s worthy of a #17 for sure :)

    Surprised you put Bon Iver on there…

    One worth adding:
    Gotye-Someone that I used to know (album not technically released until 2012)

    Oh, and of couse, MIA Paper Planes.
