Best Songs of 2011

"Humankind's Greatest Musical Genius," aka Kim Jong Il, passed in 2011. None of his tracks made my year-end top-ten list. But I found ten offerings from musical geniuses outside of the Hermit Kingdom to spotlight before 2011 passes. This is an annual FlynnFiles tradition. Here are my top-ten songs from 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, and 2004. And here are my top songs from 2011....

10. Adele Rolling in the Deep
9. My Morning Jacket Victory Dance
8. Cage the Elephant Right Before My Eyes
7. Bon Iver Calgary
6. Blink 182 Up All Night
5. Wilco The Whole Love
4. Bell X 1 Velcro
3. The Strokes Under Cover of Darkness
2. Coldplay Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall
1. Fleet Foxes Helplessness Blues/Grown Ocean (Tie)

Got a top ten? A top three? A top one? Shout it loud and proud in the comments section.

it would be tough to not have the naked and the famous- Young blood on any top 10 list. Song of the Year. All I ever wanted- Airborne toxic Event. is a top 5 song. The list is pretty good other than that
