Music 2011

So, back in the day I would do massive top 40 countdowns of my favourite albums and songs of the year. They were MASSIVELY POPULAR in Scotland. Kids would herald their arrival as a sign that Christmas was nigh. Now I’m older, fatter, wiser, lazier and more laid back about these things. So without much fanfare, here are two Spotify playlists comprising tracks from albums I loved this year and singles I loved this year.
