The songs of the year show

You’d call this “singles of the year” in the old days but I’ve just got no idea what songs bands release any more, so I just picked a number of tracks from albums or singles or free downloads or Soundclouds or Bandcamps or whatever! These were my favourite songs of 2011 in no particular order, although I did leave the best one until last.
