Top 5 Songs of 2011 NOT By Black Artists

I am a music fanatic. My favorite genre is neo-soul music with some hip hop sprinkled in for a little flavor. Unlike a lot a people I know, I do listen to a broad range of music so my tastes are very wide. I think 2011 has been the year of alternative music tastes for me. Here are my top 5 faves!!

1. Moves Like Jagger –  Maroon 5

This song is my ringtone right now, lol. Something about this tune just gets in your head and stays there!! I have been a Maroon 5 fan for a VERY long time….so the new album was a must grab for me. I’m not really feeling XTina in this song, though. I feel like she could’ve been left out. Oh well!

2. You & I – Lady Gaga

Anybody that knows me, knows that me and Lady Gaga do not get down, lol. However I realized it had more to do with her distracting image than anything else of substance. When I heard this song, I was hooked. I am a fan now.

3. If I Die Young – The Band Perry

The only reason that I love this song is because Delilah sung this song on this season of The Sing Off. I am not that big a fan of country music, but this song touches me.

4. Someone Like You – Adele

Do I even need to explain?!?!

5. Who You Are – Jessie J.

I am really feeling Jessie J. right now. Why? No idea…but I’m rolling with it.

What are your favorite songs outside of your main music genre?
