25 FAVORITE SONGS OF 2011
2011 was an interesting year for me musically. This is a very random list for sure. Not all of these songs are directly from 2011 but its when I first heard them.
1. Party Rock Anthem-LMFAO
party rock is in the house tonight/ everybody just have a good time/ and we gonna make you lose your mind/ we just want to see you shake that
This song is everywhere, radio, award shows, Kia hamster commercials, Just Dance 3. I don’t know if there is a bigger song this year. And it also led to a Shufflin’ craze that I still have not perfected.
2. Rolling in the Deep-Adele
we could have had it all/ rolling in the deep/ you had my heart inside of your hand/and you played it to the beat
A powerful song from a powerful lady. The drum beat in the background is what makes this song.
3. Broken Jaw-Foster the People
i’ve broken it a lot/ all the words come out my broken jaw/ i don’t know anything/ but then i act like i know everything
This is the last song on their album and its a good album closer.
4. Niggas in Paris-The Throne
that shit cray
Thank you Jay-Z and Kanye for deciding to make an album together. The world thanks you. And this song has also given me my new favorite catch phrase “That shit cray”.
oh killing me softly/ and i’m still fallin/ still the one i need/ i will always be with you
So much is going on with this song, so many different beats and melodies. This video is also one of my favorites this year. So colorful!
6. Houdini-Foster the People
sometimes i want to disappear
I first heard this song on Saturday Night Live before I bought the whole album. Sometimes I do want to disappear.
7. Crown on the Ground-Sleigh Bells
you never doubted it/ you’re so proud of it/ you straight shouted it/ there’s no doubt of it
The first thing I think of when I think of this song is LOUD. Its a good song to just blast in your car.
8. Super Bass-Nicki Minaj
somebody please tell him who the eff i is/ i am nicki minaj / i mack dudes up
Who doesn’t love Super Bass? It was my go to rap song this year.
9. Gucci Gucci-Kreayshawn
i got the swag and its pumping out my ovaries
Such a ridiculous song, but just for that last line of the song, its on my top song list.
10. Just In Love-Joe Jonas
there’s no other words to use/ i’m just in love with you
My roommate and I heard this song and were obsessed. I love this new Joe Jonas.
11. A$$-Big Sean ft. Nicki Minaj
i’m stacking my paper/ my wallet looks like a bible
Reminds me of Dolla Drink night. It is an Ale House staple on the dance floor.
12. Burn It All-Dean’s List
i am not a hipster sister/ i just do some hip things
Calms me down and pumps me up at the same time. How can a song do that??
13. Shake It Out- Florence + The Machine
i like to keep some things to my self/ i like to keep my issues strong/ its always darkest before the dawn
A beautiful song, as are all of her songs.
14. Hit the Lights-Selena Gomez & The Scene
hit the lights/ let the music move you/ lose yourself tonight
My new car song. Its a different kind of song from Selena
15. Call Your Girlfriend-Robyn
call your girlfriend/ its time you had the talk
Just recently heard the song when she performed on Saturday Night Live. Just her dancing earns her a spot on this list.
16. Moves Like Jagger- Maroon 5 ft. Christina Aguliera
i got the moves like jagger/ i got the moves like jagger/ i got the mooooooves moves like jagger
Adam Levine’s voice is like angels singing.
17. Jack Sparrow-The Lonely Island ft. Michael Bolton
this is the tale of captain jack sparrow/ pirate so brave on the seven seas
I died laughing the first time I heard this. So funny. Where do they come up with this stuff?
18. The Writer-Ellie Goulding
why don’t you be the writer/ and decide the words i say
Another one of my favorite albums I discovered this year. She just has such an airy quality in her voice that I love.
19. Skyscraper-Demi Lovato
do you have to make feel like/ there’s nothing left of me
Demi is the comeback kid. What a triumphant return
20. Not Over You-Gavin Degraw
if you asked me how i’m doing/ i would say i’m doing just fine/ i would lie and say that your not on my mind
Story of my life.
21. Marry the Night-Lady Gaga
i’m gonna marry the night/ i’m not gonna cry anymore
A great opening to her album. Different from her previous work.
22. Words I Never Said-Lupe Fiasco ft. Skyler Grey
its so loud inside my head/ with words that i should have said
Gotta love a political rap song. I love Skyler’s hook on this
23. Daylight-Matt & Kim
in the daylight anywhere feels like home
This was my ringtone for most of the year. So peppy with the piano.
24. Edge of Glory-Lady Gaga
i’m on the edge of glory/ and i’m hanging on a moment with you
I would say that this is the best song off her album. It makes me want to go run a marathon or dance, or something.
25. Someone Like You-Adele
nevermind i’ll find someone like you/ i wish nothing but the best for you
Such a devastating song. It just wants to make you cry .
and bonus song!
26. Friday-Rebecca Black
friday, friday/ gotta get down on friday/ everybody’s looking forward to the weekend, weekend
Ah, Friday. What would this year have been without this song? Song many moments of laughter this song has brought me. The lyrics are so terrible, yet so catchy. “Yesterday was Thursday, thursday. Today it is Friday, Friday. We we we so excited, we so excited, we gonna have a ball today. Tomorrow is Saturday and Sunday comes afterwards.” WHAT IS THIS??? A work of art is what it is.
Also I would Like to give a shoutout to “Moving Like Bernie” and “Cat Daddy” because they are fantastic dances.
