Heather’s Top 10 Albums of 2011

We hope you’re enjoying your holidays! As we reflect back on 2011, our second installment of ‘bests’ n music as seen by PlayNetwork’s Music Superivisor’s brings up Music Supervisor, Heather Thueringer’s Top 10 Albums of 2011. Without further ado…

10. Ellie Goulding – Lights

PlayNetwork was fortunate to host a PlayLive event featuring Ellie Goulding just weeks before she was tapped to play the Royal wedding and Saturday Night Live.  She did a great set on our mainstage and was as nice as could be.  Listening to her album Lights, it’s easy to see why she was one of the top-selling British artists in 2010.

9.  Jamie Woon – Mirrorwriting

I was lucky enough to catch Jamie Woon at South By Southwest and he was fantastic!  His whole album is great and I would highly encourage seeing him live if you can!  You will not be disappointed.

Songs of Summer 2011

Seems like summer always has its own soundtrack that helps weave the fabric of stories that only summer can pump out. The barbecue that ended with a visit from the fire department. The epic road trip. Water skiing for the first (and perhaps last) time. There’s usually a song or two associated with those summertime events that trigger memories of them long after they’ve happened.

That brings us to summer 2011. Our team of Music Supervisors picked ten of our favorite “Hot Picks” for your 2011 summertime playlist. These songs make a great soundtrack for your sunshine day-dreaming, adventuring and storytelling.

What’s in your heavy rotation this summer?
