Getting ahead of the game...

Since I will be gone come New Year's, i decided to do one of my fave blog posts today...

It's the "Mix Tape" post!

Remember the rules?:

-The songs do not have to be released in the particular year that you are making the CD...rather they are songs that have been discovered or rediscovered and have been particular meaningful or enjoyable or worth listening to that year for some reason.

-no repeats from year to year (this prevents the CD from being an all-time favorites album).

-you can include as many songs by one artist as you want.

-songs are limited to those that fit on a standard 80 minute CD.

SO, Without further ado, here are the songs that rocked my socks off this year.

Learn them, Love them.

1. Fuck You - Cee Lo Green (because, really, you know a song with this title that is as good as it is HAS to top my list) Honestly, I love this song SO much, it could really be the only song on this list.

2. Dog Days Are Over - Florence & the Machines (awesome song. that is all.)

3. Felt Good on my Lips - Tim McGraw (Timmy Pooh's 1st new song in ages, and most fun concert of the year!)

4. Paperweight - Joshua Radin & Schuyler Fiske (2010 is the year I fell in love with Joshua Radin. So happy I did.)

5. American Honey - Lady Antebellum (really any Lady A song would fit, but this was my most played)

6. I'm On Fire - John Mayer (because John covering The Boss is win.)

7. Beggin' - Madcon (always makes me happy when I hear it)

8. Let the Drummer Kick - Citizen Cope (so chill)

9. Just the Way You Are - Bruno Mars (overplayed, but adorable)

10. Dynamite - Taio Cruz (also overplayed, but still loved it)

11. If I Die Young - The Band Perry (this song is strange. but for some reason i LOVE it and will listen to it every time it's on the radio no matter how many times i've heard it)

12. Stuck Like Glue - Sugarland (i kinda hate Sugarland. and the video is retarded. but i still loved the song LOL)

13. Are We Really Through - Ray LaMontagne & the Pariah Dogs (2nd fave concert of the year. and SUCH a great CD)

14. I'd Rather Be With You - Joshua Radin (love him so much, he made the list twice!)

15. Replay - Iyaz (shawty's like a melody in my head...)

16. Your Love Is My Drug - Ke$ha (pretty much just for the "I like your beard" part at the end. love that.)

17. No Love - Eminem and Lil' Wayne (still harbor an odd love for Weezy. and any new Eminem is good in my book.)

18. As She's Walking Away - Zac Brown Band (w/Alan Jackson) (because i am vowing 2011 is the year i meet and marry Zac Brown...)

19. Little Lion Man - Mumford & Sons (LOVE this band. their sound is so unique and their cd is pretty much perfect.)

don't know any of the songs natch, but I am keeping fingers crossed for the whole Zac Brown thing. I'd prefer if you married Adam Richman, tho :)

Katie said...

and i included links, so you can learn ALL of these songs.

Cara said...

Katie said...

Pia said...

I was going to list my songs, but I just don't know what I want to put on there yet. I love that you have the F You song on there. I also love the band Starfucker just because of their name :)

Meg said...
