Mega-Post: The Writers’ Top 7 Songs of 2011 (so far)


Every once in a while, we’ll be doing some joint “Mega Posts” where all four of us list our favorites on one topic, in one post. In this first edition, we each individually list our favorite 7 songs from 2011 so far.

In our lists below you will see songs from epic-concept-hardcore albums, debuts, returns to form, and one from a guy who can’t seem to make up his mind about retiring (we’re looking at you, Trent). Only one song made more than one of our lists (Bon Iver – “Holocene”), even though three of our lists contained Mr. Vernon and crew. Yuck and Arctic Monkeys also made appearances on two lists. Check out the rest of the lists below, and leave your favorite songs from this year in the comments.

    Nice lists guys, but you should look north of the 49th more often – how about City and Colours “Little Hell”. Best song and record of the year so far on my llist.

      City and Colour gives me bad memories of an ex girlfriend.
