My 2011 Playlist (a.k.a. All Good Songs)

The other night I took the time to compile my favorite songs from 2011 (a few weeks into 2012 I know).  Most of the songs came from albums that I covered in my blog.  I was so excited about my new playlist that I actually looked forward to getting on the train the next morning just to listen to my awesome music.  It seemed selfish not to share my list, so if you’d like to be as excited as I was about this group of music, choose some songs that look appealing and happily you will go.  I’ve noted the ones I consider to be essential.  Enjoy!
