Best Of 2011: SONGS

Songs can express the full spectrum of human emotion in just three minutes on the radio. They can make us feel happy or sad. Some of them even make us smile! Their melodies get stuck in our head for days — that’s the power of song.

2011 was a great year for songs. It was almost like pop stars and opera composers conspired to make us feel things we’d never felt before — now is our chance to thank them. From number-one smash hits to other, crappier songs, 2011 was one of the best years ever for songs. They should put the year 2011 in the Songwriters’ Hall of Fame.
