My Music Roundup for 2011

The other day I posted my top five albums for 2011 led by the one and only Adele whose album 21 stole everyone’s heart including mine. Every song on it was brilliant and two of them end up on my top 5 songs list for this year. Now, remember this list is what I liked the most, so don’t giggle when you see a lot of pop divas. Let’s be honest, they are my favorites. I do love all kinds of music, but the divas do rule the day… Anywho, take a look at my top 20 Singles for 2011 and more music notes about the year below.
