Amy’s Top50 Songs of 2011
These are my Top5 — the easiest to place because my iTunes says so. The most played of 2011 and best rated. These are the only 2011 tracks that have a five-star rating in my player. I’m stingy with my rating like that.
5. Bibi Zhou – Sherlock Holmes (福尔摩斯)
I effing LOVE this song. Bibi’s vocals always manage to bring out such emotion in me, and I feel Sherlock Holmes brings back the Bibi vocals that I love so much and I had been missing since… probably Your Love (你们的爱) [MV], and brings it to that level of maturity.
4. Laure Shang – Love Warrior
Do you know how hard it was for me to choose between this and The Way ! Am [MV]. Then I remembered the first time I listened to Shang’s Love Warrior. Her vocals have that strange mix of freedom — I always pictured the video with the camera flying across the Mongolian plains or something — and then you have the chanting.
3. tUnE-yArDs – Bizness
I’ve always felt this song is like a burst of creative energy. It’s raw and loud and big.
