December: Top 20 (Part 1)

Welcome along to December's Top 20, the last monthly Top 20 of 2011! Despite being the month of Christmas there have been a few good releases floating around, so many in fact that only one Christmas song made it in the Top 20 this month. 
Make sure to come back again soon for Part 2 to find out what my number one song of the month was as well as to check out my Top 20 of 2011 round up posts!!
But for now from 20-11...

20. Flo Rida - Good Feeling
This song works thanks to the fantastic sample Flo Rida uses, which to me was one of the christmas-iest tunes this year. It gave me that warm happy glow that was hard to find this year. It isn't coincidental, I'm sure, that the sample was also used in Avicii's corker of a tune which you'll find below...

November: Top 20 (Part 2)

Hello again and welcome to Part 2 of this November 2011's Top 20 songs. This is where I run down my top 20 tunes that I've loved this month. There's been quite a bit of action in the charts over the past few weeks and it's been tough to choose my favourites. Read on to find out my number 1!
10. Snow Patrol - This Isn't Everything You Are
Snow Patrol are one of my favourite bands and Final Straw one of my all time favourite albums, but while their previous album wasn't as grabbing for me, their past few singles are right back on form and this one is no exception. Subtle but moving it's not going anywhere any time soon.

November: Top 20 (Part 1)

Welcome again to this month's Top 20 for November 2011! It's a close one this month with lots of interesting new entries about the place. Expect more christmas songs next month as well as my Top 20 round up for the entire year! I'm excited for that one! 
But for now have a look at what's been rocking my boat from 20 to 11...

20. T-Pain (feat. Wiz Khalifa & Lily Allen) - 5 O'clock
This song has been played the past week almost exclusively, it seems, whenever I turn on the radio. And so it has successfully found its way into my head. It may be slightly annoying that T-Pain has decided to use Lily Allen's song and then auto-tune himself all over it, but it is pretty catchy.
