Best in Music (2011) – Part 1

Been wondering what I’ve been doing for the last couple months? This is it. Prepping the end of year “best” in music. The “Part 1” in the title means that there is more to come.

It will come as no surprise to you that it was difficult to get it down to the bare essentials, but this is it. Well, this and another disc. But if I had one 80-minute playlist that I was forced to listen to all year long, this would be the one. It is “most” me. This is the music that you want playing in the background regardless of what you are doing. Hanging with friends, studying, cooking, whatever. This is a collection of songs that will never disappoint.

  1. Nice! I’ll definitely give this a whirl… maybe I’m getting to be an *ahem* grouchy music lover, but I find nowadays, I listen to more old music than new.

    Thanks for posting!
