Wired's Top 100 Songs of 2011 Spotify Playlist

An interoffice e-mail hit our inboxes one morning: “Have any favorite songs for 2011?”

The responses, unsurprisingly, piled in. Before lunch was fully digested it was born: the Wired Top 100 Songs of 2011 playlist. The vetting process had simple criteria:

1) Be submitted by a Wired staffer.
2) Be verified as from 2011.
3) Be a killer track.
4) Be available on Spotify.

Favorites ran the gamut. At any point in the office, you could overhear Beyoncé at one desk with Revocation rocking next door. There are predictable inclusions on several fronts — Bon Iver (have to keep up with the music blog Joneses), Tycho (fellow San Franciscan), Miracles of Modern Science (c’mon, name alone).

Several artists had multiple songs submitted — Merrill Garbus’ visit to our office apparently influenced the masses — but in the end we kept it to one song per album. If you happened to work on multiple projects in 2011 (looking at you, Frank Ocean), additional ones were eligible.

The playlist is available on Spotify as a 100-song collection. If you want to keep your ears from any jarring transitions, you can also listen by genre: Uptempo, Midtempo, Downtempo, Aggressive and Groove sub-playlists are available.
