This time of year, there’s no shortage of best-of lists naming the top songs released in 2011. Instead of adding to that traffic with our own end-of-year roundup, we decided to collect the names of songs we’ve each been listening to a lot recently, no matter what year they were recorded.
Every person on our staff played along, sharing the name of a favorite tune, as well as some background on what made it their choice (read their descriptions in this week’s our voice). The result is a diverse bunch of songs that, when played together, create a one-of-a-kind soundtrack to our lives.
We hope you enjoy listening to this very special mixed tape as much as we enjoyed putting it together.
