22 Lovers - Jackie Evancho Lovers - Jackie Evancho

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 16, Jackie has sung this at every concert. It just gets better and better. - BobG

23 The Edge of Glory - Lady Gaga The Edge of Glory - Lady Gaga

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.

24 Lotus Flower - Radiohead Lotus Flower - Radiohead

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).

25 Killed by Love - JLS
26 I Wanna Go - Britney Spears I Wanna Go - Britney Spears

28 Lie to Me - The Wanted
29 We Found Love - Rihanna We Found Love - Rihanna

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!

30 Lighters - Bad Meets Evil Lighters - Bad Meets Evil

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 full

34 Dagger - The Wanted
35 Be Careful - Jason Derulo Be Careful - Jason Derulo
36 All of the Lights - Kanye West All of the Lights - Kanye West

This is song won 2 grammy awards and was nominated for 2011 best song in the 54th grammy awards edition. It is one of the best songs I have ever heard

This song is just so glorious. Hell, forget 2011. I think this might be the best song of the decade so far.

Can't find "More", but this is a good alternative for nr one. By the way Rihanna rocks here (fergie less)

37 Lego House - Ed Sheeran Lego House - Ed Sheeran
38 Skyscraper - Demi Lovato Skyscraper - Demi Lovato

Why is this so far back, it is the best song cause she has more talent than most people in front of her

This was definitely the bast song of 2011, demis voice is flawless in every song but this one gave me hope and it made me believe.

39 Innocence - JLS
40 You and I - Lady Gaga You and I - Lady Gaga
