2011 in Review

Ah. Boxing Day. The day set aside for opening all those wonderful presents. I know a lot of you are probably still hungover from Christmas, so I'll keep today's post as brief as can be.

I'll start with a minor aside. Over the weekend, I had the pleasure of granting my very first interview (hosted by yours truly). To check this out, head over to: http://nigelpbird.blogspot.com/2011/12/dancing-with-myself-michael-abayomi.html

Okay. Back to business.

One thing in particular that I love about this time of the year is year-end lists. This is where various publications, websites and bloggers list their picks of the very best of the year. So in keeping with this trend, I am going to spend the rest of the week blogging about the things I loved about 2011. Tomorrow, I reveal my favorite song from a list of 5 finalists. On Wednesday, I talk about favorite albums. On Thursday, favorite movies. And on Friday, I'll talk about my personal achievements for the year; resolutions that were met... that sort of thing.

And so, in preparation for tomorrow's post, here is a rundown of my favorite songs since the year 2000. Enjoy.

2000
Eminem - Stan


2001
Daft Punk - One More Time


2002
Avril Lavigne - Complicated


2003
Linkin Park - Somewhere I Belong


2004
Muse - Time is Running Out

Disclaimer: By listing these songs as my favorites over the years, I am in no way suggesting that they were the best songs released in their respective years. It's just that when I think back to the years in question, these are the songs that immediately come to mind. In other words, I find them most memorable.
