The Best Songs of 2011 | 25 – 1

Well, friends, the end is no longer near. It’s here. The end of our Best Songs of 2011 countdown, that is. The real end comes next December, as we all know.

Perhaps it’s no surprise that Bon Iver landed the number one spot with the track, “Holocene.” But, amazingly, the song and the record itself is one that the four of us, each with, at times, quite divergent musical taste, can agree upon. It’s fitting that we found common ground in such beauty.

To listen to our entire list of 100 favorite songs from this year, visit us at Spotify. Stay tuned for our list of the Best Albums of 2011 coming Monday.
