Please note that this is a pre-written post. I have a very important announcement to make on Sunday.
10: How Ya Doin? by Little Mix
Usually, I’d be in my family’s main car, reading a magazine and this would always come on the radio. I have such great memories tied to this track, it was their third single off of their first ever album (which turns five this year!) and it’s my second favourite song off of it!
9: Get Lucky by Daft Punk
I think this song sums up everything hot and energetic about the summertime itself, it suits the time of the year so perfectly. The album this came off of, was Daft Punk’s first in EIGHT years! But this lead track certainly makes the wait worth it!
8: Change Your Life by Little Mix
My very favourite girl-band’s second appearance on this list, this song highlights the struggle that many people have to go through in their lives, and gives them and everybody else listening, lyrics to motivate and inspire them. Powerful song and my favourite off of their first album!
I’ve loved these four since X Factor! Their debut single after the group’s winner’s cover, this song did VERY well for itself on the charts. The whole track is upbeat, fresh and has some really empowering and encouraging lyrics for anybody who listens to this song. These wings are made to fly!
3: Chasing The Sun by The Wanted
Club track and on the soundtrack for Ice Age: The Meltdown, The incredibly strong and powerful chorus is the best part of this song. It’s fun, summery and just wants to make you have a good time! The Wanted made some REALLY good songs!
2: Euphoria by Loreen
This track won the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 and was a huge chart topping hit in Sweden! This will probably sound strange, but I feel slightly magical and festive when I play this song. You kind of do get a euphoria from this track!
This song is so easy to sing along and it’s one of my personal karaoke classics. I think of hot summery days in my garden when I hear this!
6: 30 Days by The Saturdays
I remember going on evening drives to all the different beaches that we had back when we lived in Scotland, and I played this song during them. It brings back such beautiful memories to me and that’s why it’s on this list!
5: Titanium by David Guetta and Sia
There’s such a good and important message to this song, about getting back up when knocked down, and being stronger than titanium itself during good and bad times alike. It’s in my all-time favourite songs!
Rihanna sings beautifully on this romantic ballad. There’s some great visual representations in the music video for this song and one thing’s for sure, I always get chills at the very beginning of this track!
9: Sweet Nothing by Calvin Harris
Wow this song makes me feel a mixture of good emotions, happy, passionate and upbeat are among those emotions. This song’s chorus is undoubtedly my favourite part of it!
8: We Are Young by Fun
The title (and bandname) say it all for this track! There’s a simple message behind the song, very easy lyrics. I really like how there’s nothing about this track that’s too complicated!
I think of that summer when I hear this song, its high energy, danceable and just made for a good time and fun! It was a close call between this and the others on this list, but Louder beat them out to become my top song of 2011!
It’s the end of my hits of 2011 list, I’ll start my 2012 list soonish and in the meanwhile, be sure to google all the names of the songs on the list if you aren’t already heard them!
10: Moves Like Jagger by Maroon 5 featuring Christina Aguilera: This song’s lyrics are EXTREMELY catchy and easy to sing along. The chorus is my favourite part of this pop track, most definitely, very fun and so dancey. This song akes me think of all things summery, parties and bounciness.
9: Take A Chance On Me by JLS: This ballad is so good and very feathery. Released not long after their hit ‘She Makes Me Wanna’, I do remember when this came out and I always think of Christmas 2011 when I hear this, as the radios played this a lot over that Christmas period!
8: All About Tonight by Pixie Lott: I played this dance track CONSTANTLY when it first came out, it’s poppy, got an amazing chorus and I still love today. I’ve spent the last five years bopping away to this in the car!
For the next few days, I’m going to be revealing my favourite songs of a particular year.
From the years 2011-2016, I’ll be counting down my top ten favourites of that years.
This will either be on Mondays or Wednesdays, so I have time to write the top tens down. I’m really excited to be share my favourites with you guys, I’m also looking forward to going down memory lane as most of the songs bring me back to some really happy places.
