My Top Tunes of 2011
This post includes songs that were new to me in 2011, meaning some of them may not be real 2011 releases. Once again, my blog, my rules. Now that I have set the ground rules, I will not mince words or platitudes on these bands or songs and will simply post the video with a link to their website. Please visit them, and remember, support these artists and any others that strike you, be they authors, musicians, sculptors etc. It is hard to be creative when you are starving.
10. Adele Rolling In The Deep
Could have picked any of the songs on this album.
9. Matthew Barber Keep It Alive
A beautiful ballad.
8. Foster The People Pumped Up Kicks
The lyrics are what sets this song apart from the pack. Easy to sing along, but what is it that you are singing.
7. Sara Bareilles King of Anything
A light pop sound, but done, oh so well.
6. Amos Lee Windows Are Rolled Down
This guy has been blowing me away for years. Great, great song.
5. Cake Sick Of You
My solar-powered entry.
4. Frank Turner If Ever I Stray
British folk songs, sung by ex-punk stars with really cool videos seem to be very popular now.
3. Eliza Doolittle Pack Up
Another cool retro style British pop song, and I have no idea why I liked it so much.
2. Raphael Saadiq Stone Rollin’
Saw him at the House of Blues in New Orleans. PERFECT!!! If R&B hadn’t been invented, he would be right now.
1. Trombone Shorty Do To Me
I was stunned when I first heard this album. Couldn’t download it fast enough.
