Glen’s Favourites: Best Songs of 2011


It has been quite a year for me, graduating, moving to china, moving back, moving away again and starting law school. I am not complaining in the least, its been a very exciting time in my life. I know this is a music blog and all, but here are some photos of the year. All of these tracks here have been my favourite track at some time this year, and like most music listeners music is much more than just listening to something. (oh god that sounded pretentious) But its very true, well here are pictures of what I was doing at the time the track was my favourite. I will later do a post on my top albums of the year.
