Interesting to see all the comments about Swede Mason. He did a Jeremy Clarkson beatbox one as well, and from Jeremy Clarkson, where do we go to? Well...
80. Tracy Chapman - Fast Car
It was Michael Collings who helped "Fast Car" get a new lease of life as his Britain's Got Talent performance saw the song rocket into the UK top 5 - higher than it even originally got back in 1988!
79. Bad Meets Evil featuring Bruno Mars - Lighters
The name Eminem is most definitely one that sells records VERY easily. Therefore, it has always bemused me that for some reason because duo side-project Bad Meets Evil doesn't actually credit Eminem's name people simply don't buy it. Their debut in 1999 barely made it into the top 75, as did their first "comeback" single of 2011. However, they got the help of Bruno Mars and the pairing of Bruno Mars and Eminem resulted in a brilliant song!
78. Red Hot Chili Peppers - The Adventures Of Rain Dance Maggie
A contender for the biggest flop of the year would have to be this total failure to score a top 40 hit from Red Hot Chili Peppers! They've had far better songs in their day, but even with this track they deserved a spot in my top 100 of the year.
77. Anna Rossinelli - In Love For A While
This year's Eurovision for me largely saw the right songs making it through to the final, but then an absolutely shocking result in the final contest. Switzerland, for example, came last in the final, despite having this absolutely wonderful song entered! How many more Eurovision moments will feature?
76. One Direction - What Makes You Beautiful
Yes, I can't really believe this either. Matt Cardle's debut single proper is beaten by, amongst other things, One Direction's debut! I'm hardly an obvious fan of boybands, but I just think the message behind this song is a great one - often the most attractive girls around are those who don't necessarily think they're beautiful.
75. Rebecca Black - Friday
Sorry - but this is a perfect example of "so bad it's good". It just gets stuck in your head because it really is so lyrically dreadful and musically simple. It was just SUCH a phenomenon though that I got rather sucked in. Don't worry guys though, there's no Shardinay on this chart!
74. Gerry Rafferty - Baker Street
At 100, we had Amy Winehouse. Now at 74, it's another of the names we lost in 2011. It was back in January that rock legend Gerry Rafferty left this world, and in tribute, "Baker Street" found itself nearly back in the top 40. It's an absolutely fantastic song, and a great example of a legend at his best.
73. Calling - Wherever You Will Go
Another older song next, the Calling and their fantastic rock track "Wherever You Will Go". Thanks to Charlene Soraia, it found itself back in the top 40 this year. Charlene's cover is still to come, but how high?
72. Nicki Minaj - Super Bass
Well who predicted Nicki Minaj would feature in my chart, eh? Hardly my expected taste, this is just a fantastic example of someone with a definite talent being able to show that talent. To think when I first heard her (on that dreadful Will.I.Am duet ruination of "Video Killed The Radio Star") I thought she was dreadful!
71. Florence and the Machine - What The Water Gave Me
Florence lands in 71st place with the first of her two entries in this list. It's a very decent track from her, but I can't help feeling she's had better on the previous album. Thankfully the second single was better - and is thus still to come.
