The countdown continues here with songs 15 – 6. Hope you are enjoying this list as much as I enjoyed putting it together. I am amazed at the plethora of music worth listening to that has come out in the past few months. The rest of the list will come this weekend.
My wife referred to this album as elevator music, but I just can’t get enough of it. I especially love the little guitar riff that comes in and out of the background of this track. It complements the Kenny G-like sax quite well. You can join my wife and mock it if you like. But that is an elevator I would love to stay on.
The instrumentation on this song and the rest of this album is just phenomenal. I had the hardest time choosing a song off of this album to include on this list. Any of a number of songs could be taking this spot. I can’t wait to see these guys open for The National next week at Cain’s Ballroom.
Yesterday I gave you the first 10 songs in my list of favorite songs of this year. I know the just over 3 months have passed, but a lot of great music has come out already. So here is the next 10 songs in my list. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
So I kinda disappeared for a week or so, but I am back with a monster post. I love lists so much, and am constantly working on them. I rarely share them, because by the time I finish them, they are usually pretty outdated. Well I have resolved to making time to finish them in a timely manner. So I am bringing you my favorite songs of the first quarter of 2011.
I started out aiming to give you my top 25 songs thus far, but it has been such a fantastic year for music thus far that I couldn’t limit it to just 25. This list is only about the songs and says nothing about my opinion of the rest of their album. Also I chose to include only one song from any particular artist, so as to share the love.
