My Best Songs of 2011

It is that time of year when all the countdowns are released.  I have compiled a list of my top twenty songs of 2011.  The genre I listen to most and post on this music blog is alternative, so as you will notice my top songs will tend to fall in this genre.  Most of the songs I have listed, with a few exceptions, were not mainstream hits but to me they are the best songs off the albums.  If you have not heard some of the songs I have listed they are definitely worth taking the time to look up and listen to.
