2011 has been great in music. But some songs stood out for me, some by new artists and some by old. So here are my top 37 songs of 2011. Why 37? Well, it’s an odd number. (nice reason, eh?)
37. Science & Faith, by The Script
The Script has always amazed me with their brilliantly crafted songs, and “Science & Faith” is no exception. With great instrumentals and witty lyrics, this song is a must-hear for those falling in love. “Science & Faith” came from The Script’s second album, bearing the same name.
36. Criminal, by Britney Spears
The first time I have heard this song, I wasn’t very thrilled. But this song grew on me and I liked it after a few more listens. “Criminal” is one of my favorite songs of 2011 because of its infectious chorus and catchy beat. This is Britney’s fourth single from her album “Femme Fatale.”
35. Rumour Has It, by Adele
What a powerful song this is! The song starts with stomps of percussion and continues its brilliance with Adele’s vocals and supported by the repetitive yet catchy chorus. This song has literally been stuck in my head for weeks, and I always find myself singing along with it in my head. “Rumour Has It” was supposed to be the third single from Adele’s sophomore album 21 but was scrapped to make way for an equally awesome song, “Set Fire to the Rain.” (more…)
