Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.

When I look at 2011, it was a musical eye opener for me. That’s why I’d like to give you my four favourite songs of 2011. Hope you’ll find something you like.

Something Old

Bon Iver has been around for quite a long time, but since Birdy’s popular cover, some attention has gone back to this wonderful artist. Which is why, this song fits onto the 2011 list, whilst being from 2009. And although I have a lot of respect for the talented Birdy, I can’t help but think that the original is infinitely better.

 

Something New

This is new, as in ‘extremely fresh’. The Glitch Mob made an excellent album, with We Can Make the World Stop being my favourite track on it.

 

Something Borrowed

Brussels based deejay The Magician decided to borrow I Follow Rivers, by Lykke Li for his remix. And I can’t blame him for taking the song and giving it some oomph.

 

Someting Blue

Sadness is beautiful, even more so if it’s placed deep within a soothing song performed by one of the greatest and most underestimated singers of 2011, Lucy Rose. Be sure to check out her site, she’s got a few free tunes that you shouldn’t miss out on in 2011.
