My Top 50 Songs of 2011

This year was a bit strange for me. I didn’t watch as many movies, I didn’t finish as many games, and I didn’t buy as much music as I usually do. The 21 albums I purchased is probably more than a lot of other people did this year, but it is down by about 50% from what I did in 2010. While a lot of people will probably argue that music this year was garbage, and they are more than entitled to that opinion, I disagree, the albums I bought I really enjoyed (mostly). Regardless of what the reasons may, or may not, have been the below list is my top 50 songs culled from my collection of music I bought in 2011.

Some are going to read the list and say, “Damn, Chris has weird tastes”, and that would be a fair assessment. I enjoy all types of music but my tastes mostly lie in mainstream pop/rock with a few exceptions. So enjoy my insanity below and leave me some of your favorites from this year and I’ll be sure to check them out.

And yes there is a Nickelback song and a song from a Nickelodeon actress on the list, sue me.
