First time I saw this performance I was totally floored.
Still amazes me how she did this.
Theme from the movie "House of Flying Daggers", and the CD "Dream With Me" made it to #2 on the Billboard Top 200 charts, and #1 on the Classical Charts, and the DVD of the concert was also #1 on the DVD charts.
Performed on her first PBS Great Performances "Dream With Me - In Concert, with traditional Chinese instruments: Zheng (zither), Erhu (two-string fiddle), Dizi (bamboo flute), and Japanese Taiko (drums) group, plus full orchestra. Powerful.
Now age 15, Jackie has sung this at every concert. It just gets better and better. - BobG
Amy Lee is amazing during this song, so is the instrumentation. - SwellowV1 Comment
I usually hate Taylor Swift's music. I think it's all immature garbage that is an example of pretty much everything wrong about relationships.
However, this song. Simply put, it's everything that the other Taylor Swift songs are not. It's an apology that actually sounds sincere and heartfelt. For a while I hoped she could continue in this more mature direction. Unfortunately, she went back to square one with "We are never ever getting back together". But for a while that potential was there.
She's the best! Her lyrics are so awesome... No one can beat Taylor Swift's Back To December. and also her awesome songs in her album like mine, speak now, story of us, ours
Taylor Swift is classic, original, and unique. She is actually appropriate too. She is a role model. The best singer a girl could follow. No one can beat Taylor Swift's Back To December.

Come on, guys. Rate it. Radiohead members brought you truly masterpiece, and you don't even pay attention to them and their art. Don't forget that they made 4 albums that became one of the best albums of all time (OK Computer, Kid A, The Bends and In Rainbows).
Really a good clean song about her relationship. Also peaked at #3 on the Billboard. Plus the song is great and enjoyable to listen to. Its one those songs that makes you sing along and dance to.V1 Comment

Best Song of 2011 in my Opinion, and Yeah, Eminem's lyrics is awesome, Please Vote for this song you all. I think it should be Number one Song of 2011. Damn man, its so awesome I can't stop listening to it, (Right now I am listening to it too) so what chu waiting for please vote for this and listen to it if you haven't done that till now
Please make this number 1! Most of the music this year has been appalling and this was like a breath of fresh air. Actually quite a lot of good electronic music was released, but that kind of stuff never reaches a mainstream audience. This one manages to keep the classic bad meets evel sound and bring it into 2011!
Lighters just sounds so depressing. I acknowledge that the song has meaning. "sky full of lighters" I think that is supposed to be a metaphor that means dreams. Bruno Mars's voice makes the song even more depressing. I do not like Lighters. I pass on this. - madoog
Good nice and superb song I listen to it daily life seems fullV2 Comments
No. Sure. Rihanna's vocals are all nice, but there is something about this song. I do not know how to describe the instrumental --- that combined with repetitive lyrics does not work for me. I listened to eleven samples of this song and still do not like it. - madoog
People, are you serious? 67th? It's the best song ever!
What's wrong with everyone?
Have you people forgotten "RIHANNA"... We Found Love totally rocks!
This song is absolutely appealing. Jay Z and Kanye West collaboration is successful, and they did well. The hard beats, the static sounds, the vocals / The song has interesting verses. This is unique. This song goes hard. This song got me nodding my head. It is a great song from the collaborative Watch The Throne album. - madoog
The Beat, the Lines, the baller-ness. If you go by how catchy a song is, this is still ahead of everything else. I get if Rap isn't your thing, and if you don't like their excessively baller braggadocio attitudes though (but... BALL SO HARD).
I like Linkin Park and have heard a lot of their music, but there are too many fanboys/fangirls that pick them over everything else no matter what. I will say, Burning In the Skies is my favorite song off that album.
However, you should be judging music on a combination of catchiness, melody, lyrics, message, production, and overall quality of the artist. In no order whatsoever.
Finally, don't put songs on a yearly list when they were released off an album in a different year. That means you're judging the song off of popularity at the point of time, not quality.
