Best of 2010: Arjan's Top 25 Songs of The Year


Following my list of favorite albums of the year, I've also put together my 25 favorite tunes of 2011. It is a diverse bunch of tunes that either were included on a fantastic album or represent a flash of pop brilliance that stands gloriously on its own. 

The list ranges from the sunny vibes of Dragonette's "Volcano" to the grand, uplifting sonics of Reni Lane's "Place For Us," to Matt Morris' inspiring "Live Forever" to the humble songwriting of Bruno Mars. Janelle Monae's "Cold War" is a powerful call to action that continues to inspire me. Robyn's "Dancing On My Own" is effortless pop that represents the entire triumphant "Body Talk" project perfectly.
