favorite songs: Winter Song, Rivers and Roads, Couer D'alene, Lost In My Mind

Sigh No More--Mumford & Sons

this was on my list last year but i had just bought it and didn't really know the music yet. i fell in love with this album and can't wait to hear what they come up with next.
favorite songs: The Cave, Winter Winds, Awake My Soul, After The Storm

Allen Stone and Last To Speak--Allen Stone

these are two albums by a new artist, Allen Stone. i went to two of his shows this year and was just blown away. this guy has serious talent. look him up online, you'll be amazed.
favorite songs: Figure It Out, Say So, Your Eyes, Satisfaction, cover of Bob Marley's Is This Love


It Will Rain, Bruno Mars

see also: marry you, grenade.

The One That Got Away, Katy Perry

i can listen to this song all day. love it.

Domino, Jessie J

new favorite

Somewhere Only We Know, Glee Cast

this song stuck with me. can i say i love it more than the original?

Tonight Tonight, Hot Chelle Rae

but seriously, this song is so fun to dance to in the car and i know all the words!

Bluebird/Arms, Christina Perri

these two are my faves

The Show Must Go On, Lupe Fiasco

fell in love with this the first time i heard it. it's just so good.

Never Gonna Leave This Bed, Maroon 5

another one i could listen to all day long.

Paradise/Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall, Coldplay

such a different sound for them but they are so fun.

You And I, Lady Gaga

the first time i heard this, i didn't even recognize her. love to sing along to this one.

We Won't Run, Sarah Blasko

listen to this and you won't be able to get it out of your head.

Complicated, Rihanna

i heard this song while trying on clothes in a store and hummed it until i could get home and look it up. it's a great one for listening while running your frustrations out about boys.

Best Thing I Never Had, Beyonce

another favorite for channeling boy frustrations. thanks, ladies.

Without You, David Guetta feat. Usher

such a great jam. plus, lea michele did an awesome cover on glee this week.

Not Over You, Gavin DeGraw

this song has been described as "Adele for guys." just the right amount of angst.

it was a great year in music and here's what i'm excited about for 2012: the black keys, florence + the machine, lykke li, ingrid michaelson, bon iver, beirut, mayer hawthorne, graffiti6, young the giant.
