2011's Top 100 Songs: #80-61

2011 was an interesting year for music. Great sounds were thankfully everywhere- but songs, as opposed to albums, became suddenly more memorable. While there is no doubt that 2011 was an exciting time for full-length releases, more and more artists seemed to be embracing the idea of the single and crafting an album around it. Due to this apparent evolution, I will be counting down my top 100 songs of 2011. The rules are simple- obviously the track must have first been released in this current year. Also, no one album can have more than three songs make an appearance. Also, keep in mind, this list is subjective- I have not yet had the opportunity to listen to some of this year's more popular releases.The new Jay-Z/Kanye West collaboration,Watch the Throne will not be making an appearance. Adele's 21 and Drake's Take Care were not taken into account either.
