music 2011

Ok so all the music blogs are posting their favorite music released in 2011. Since I just got on the bandwagon of new releases... I'm going to post about music I've discovered this year. These may or may not have been newly released.
Most have popped up on my Pandora radio... And that could be country, folk, jazz, alternative, pop, or rock. I recommend each of the following songs:
•Dedicated to the one I love- Lucinda Williams
•I'm yours -Jason Mraz and the version from Straight No Chasers
•Challenged-New Pornographers
•Love came here-Lhasa
•Mad world-Alex Parks
•Treat me right-Grace Potter and the Nocturnals
•Smooth Operator-Dorothy Dandridge
•She's so high- Tal Bachman
•Mellow B- Dandelion
•Sweet Pea- Amos Lee
•4+20 - Joss Stone
•Just for what I am - Connie Smith
•Woodstock- Alice Smith

And... KEEP ON, originally by Curtis Mayfield. From the Chase commercials. Gotta find this. Damnit
Little Voice by Sarah Bareilles
Mystical America by Laura Sullivan

And artists:
J Geils Band
Melody Gardot
Connie Evingson
Duo Gadjo
Astrud Gilberto
Leela James
Hollie Cook
Chantal Chamberland
Honey Boy Martin

And just for the record, I still can play the following over and over and never want it to stop filling my ears-
Otis Redding, Etta James, Sam Cooke, Janis Joplin, Martha Wainwright, Vera Lynn, Dean Martin, Amy Winehouse, Bill Withers, The Drifters... Surely there are others? Anne?
