Top 10 songs of 2011

At Number 10 it's Ghostpoet, he was nominated for a Mercury Music Prize this year and rightly so, this song Liines is from his album Peanut Butter Blues and Melancholy Jam.

Number 9 is Swedish songstress Lykke Li, her album Wounded Rhymes was one of the albums of 2011 and this for is the best song on it, called Rich Kids Blues.

Loved Number 8 the second I heard it, it's called Goldstar and is by Belfast band Cashier No 9.

At Number 7 are Pete and the Pirates who released a super album in 2011 called One Thousand Pictures, this song called Half Moon Street.

The Strokes came back in 2011 with a new album called Angles and while it didn't set the world alight for me there were a few stand out songs.
and in at Number 6 pop pickers, is Call Me Back.

Metronomy had quite a few nice tunes out this year on their album The English Riviera, this for me was by far the best, The Look at Number 5.

Number 4 appeared quite late in the year but love this song,
Daughter and Home.

Heard Number 3 first when they played it at Glastonbury and while I wasn't a huge fan of them before this I thought this was amazing.
The Horrors and Still Life

Number 2 is The Drums and Money from their difficult second album Portamento.
The kids love this one and so do I.

and finally Number 1 tune for 2011 is The Vaccines and Post Break Up Sex.
One of the most beautiful songs I've heard in manys a year.
