Top 30 songs of 2011

I struggled a lot trying to put this list together. I felt like a kid doing last minute homework, listening to all the stuff I should have heard throughout the year… so if I missed any good music, that’s why (if you’d add something to this list, comment below). Also, don’t take the order too seriously, it was really hard to determine which song was better than the other. Enjoy.
