My Favourite 100 Songs of 2011 (Just Another List)

A few weeks ago I posted a selection of my favourite songs of 2011. A selection of 15 or so powered by the beauty of You Tube. Since then I have read some excellent lists that went a whole lot further. Up to 100 in fact. Like here, here, here, here and here. So I decided to create a list for myself. No real reason other then that I like to create lists. I see some list makers will limit each artist to only one song. Some go unlimited. I have decided to compromise. A limit of three songs per artist.
Hope you find something on the list you enjoy.
