Today isn’t really the 9th of December, but this topic was scheduled for the 9th, so I’ll keep it in line with the #Reverb11 schedule.
The topic dujour is my favorite song or album of 2011, but for anyone who knows me, I can’t just choose one song. I love all genres and am a fan of so many artists, so I went through my library, listening to any song or album that was released from October 2010 and forward: it seemed only fair as I wouldn’t be able to consider any albums released after December 9th.So, here we go with my aptly named “Deb Awards”, with links to the sites where my readers may purchase the album.
The Deb Award for the Best Christmas song:
Peace on Earth, feat. Jordan Knight by Joey McIntyre
The Deb Award for the Best R&B song:
Slowly by Boyz II Men
The Deb Award for the Best Mixtape Hip Hop Song by a Major Label Artist:
Respect, feat. Garden State by Naughty by Nature.
This is stretching it just a little bit because the mixtape was released in 2010, but I didn’t download it till this year. The funny thing is Naughty by Nature just released their new album, Anthem, this year, but I won’t be able to purchase it till next year.
