Top 60 Favorite Tracks of 2011

Standard

These top 60 played songs of the year were blasted many a time on my 6:30am drives to school (in the pitch black) before clinic, on my way home from clinic after a exhausting stressful day gazing at the sunset, long drives in the rain, short drives in the sun with the windows rolled down, Portland road trips (x2),  runs in the forest, runs on the pavement, runs on the beach, runs on the treadmill, and every other time in between imaginable. I tried to limit myself to 50, but it got a bit out of control. I couldn’t help myself. This was a great year for new music, if I do say so myself.
