Favourite song of 2011

Recommended Posts

In 2008 it was an easy choice, Wildest Dreams from BROTHER FIRETRIBE, in 2009 it was Caroline from THE POODLES and in 2010 it was Chemical from CRASHDIET

 

But so far in 2011 I'm having a tough time finding a really good one that blows me away. Although the better releases of the year should be coming out in the second half of the year, so maybe I just haven't heard it yet.

 

Here are my favs so far

Brilliant song!

Easily the best ballad so far this year, my wife asked me if I had a stiffy when I first heard it. Although as good as the pre-chorus and chorus are, the verses are not that great.

My frontrunner at the moment, a blissfull chorus and the rest of the song is great as well. The Poodles have to be my fav band of the past 5 years. Caroline was my pick in '09, One Night Of Passion was up there in '06 and Band Of Brothers was my fav track of '07. They don't release the best or most complete albums, they all have some fillers, however their good songs are freakin' killers.

 

So what's your pick so far for 2011?

 

please add a video or a sample if possible. :tumbsup:

My favourite from Performocracy is probably "Into the Quiet Night." It's actually probably my favourite track of the year.

 

Other favourites, granted I'm behind on this year's releases, are:

Put Your Arms Around Me - Electric Boys (I know you girls are too busy hatin' on the new Electric Boys, but I'm lovin' 'em!)

Queen of the Night - Lovex (I just love those horns!)

Undertow - Mr. Big (Did any of us really expect Mr. Big to come back like this?!!)

One of These Days - Whitesnake (Such a beautiful song)

It's going to be something off Toby Hitchcock - probably 'Tear Down The Barricades'. Totally awesome song.

 

Aside from that I love the following

 

The Great Fall - Work Of Art

Emergency - Miss Behaviour

Rivers Of Destiny - Edens Curse

Love Song - Ten

Outloud - The Night That Never Ends

Night Ranger - End Of The Day

Destrophy - It Ends Tonight

Bad Habit - everytime You Cry

I like how you started off listing song followed by artist, then you switched it up halfway. It had me confused for a bit.

2011 has been a shit year for me thus far in terms of buying CDs. There are lots 'n' lots that I'd like to get but haven't had time/$$$ to buy'em with. F*ckin' economy...

 

So anyway, as of right now the only 2011 releases I've heard have been the new Stryper and Anvil. And with only those two to choose from I'd have to go with this track off of Anvil's JUGGERNAUT OF JUSTICE...

On reflection though there are at least 4 songs on the Toby Hitchcock which are better than any of these songs. Such is the quality of that album!

1. ALYSON AVENUE - Will I Make Love

 

IMHO every song on the new Toby Hitchcock is better than that tune :P

 

The song I like the most on the Alyson Avenue is 'Amazing Days'....even if it does rip off Mitch Malloy's 'Nobody Wins In This War'.

 

Cheers

You're probably not far off. Although I like all those albums I've listed there has been no major league album this year (like Treat/H.E.A.T/First Signal from last year), until the Hitchcock disc IMO. Night Ranger is a big album but it doesn't have a big standout tune for me. Frankly there are probably 3 or 4 songs on Toby Hitchcock's disc that are as good if not better than most in my list...

 

P.s. I still think the Alyson Avenue disc is damn good...

Can't believe no one else is talking about Reece/Kronlund "Samurai".

That tune is monsterous IMO.

well, its a decent rocking tune, with a slightly dodgy chorus..............surely 'My Angel Wears White' destroys it tho ??! I think that 'solid' is the right title for this album cos whilst it has a few standouts it is definitely solid, but not more.....

I absolutely love the album and it gets better with each spin and sure "My Angel Wears White" is awesome but "Samurai" is just killer IMO and the chorus is in no way "dodgy".

You can leave it alone, but now I'm curious as to what his definition of "dodgy" is.

The 2 stand-outs for me so far:

 

'She should have been an angel' - 7th Heaven

'Oh My God' - Sixx AM

 

A lot of other good 'uns from Bai Bang and Miss Behaviour especially, and that one by Hell in the Club, which is my 3rd fave song of the year. Can't remember the title - song 4, I think. Hopefully I get a second tomorrow to have a decent go at this thread.

Oh, yeah. Two fantastic tracks. I still need to pick up that 7th Heaven disc. How is their Jukebox release(s)?

I don't have the Jukebox thing either. Maybe one day.

 

Indeed they are two amazing songs. Far ahead of the pack for me, but here are the next best:

 

'Good enough' - Adelitas Way

'Heart in your hands'- Trust Company

'You're not alone' - The Blackout

'Keep on moving' - The Blackout

'What happened to emotion (Killing me)' - Forever The Sickest Kids

'Since you're not here' - Hell In The Club / 3rd best song of 2011 so far

'Cynthia' - Miss Behaviour

'Emergency' - Miss Behaviour

'The other way' - A Change of Pace

'Confession' - Coldrain

'Never should have let you go' - Saliva

'Shout' - Syndicate

'No Return' - Victory

 

 

And a few tracks of the Destrophy, David Cook and Stealing Eden discs, as well as Toby Hitchcock. All have too many to pinpoint, and the quality is so high it's hard to pick clear winners.

    • Uhh... have you seen the slate of releases for early 2020? Shits all over 2019.
    • Not so fast my friend. Hold on a minute...... Without a single noteworthy release in 2020 out yet, these are ridiculous proclamations! 
    • Fap fap fap fap fap... 2020 could wind up being the very year for releases that 2019 wasn't.
    • Mediocre song, mediocre vocals.  Guy sounds like a lesser version of about seven different singers.
    • Yep, that's a good start.
    • I dig that song.  Want to hear more.
    • Yeaaah...I hate that solo.  For me, the second half of that song is awful.  The first is off the charts great.  That signature riff?  Incredible.  But when it slows down, it dies.
    • Paul  mixes both Wicked and Radio Sun, Steve features in both. Don't if he got digs down here, it mainly Melbourne where he based .Also he might come down to get a suntan (lol).  
    • From facebook: ”THE DARK DELIGHT” out on April 3rd! Swedish melodic metal band DYNAZTY to release new album ”THE DARK DELIGHT” on April 3rd. First single ”PRESENCE OF MIND” out on January 30th. Formed in Stockholm, Sweden in 2008, DYNAZTY has since released 6 albums in a mere 10 year window.  Straying from their early days of 80’s influenced Hardrock, the band has developed and refined their sound into something that merges the modern metal scene with the past, crafting something wholly unique. Today the band is comprised of highly respected and sought after musicians, active on the metal scene in more than one way. Bassist Jonathan Olsson can also be seen in both LINDEMANN and PAIN, guitarist Love Magnusson and drummer Georg Härnsten Egg frequently tours with rock legends such as DEE SNIDER and JOE LYNN TURNER. Guitarist Mikael Lavér has been featured with both LINDEMANN and JOE LYNN TURNER, while singer Nils Molin can be heard and seen around the globe with the ever rising star of fellow Swedish band AMARANTHE. DYNAZTY are now on April 3rd set to release their biggest and most engrossing album yet - ”THE DARK DELIGHT”. Singer Nils Molin says about the album: ”We pulled out all the stops, pulled no punches and held nothing back on this one. ”THE DARK DELIGHT” is the complete vision of what this band has always wanted to be”.   Spearheaded by the first single/music video ”PRESENCE OF MIND”, DYNAZTY enters the new decade with a bang. The single and music video of PRESENCE OF MIND will be released on all platforms on January 30th. ”PRESENCE OF MIND showcases the raw nature of our band and is just the kind of groovy and melodic onslaught of a song we always wanted to release as a first single”.
