Fun Find | Top 10 Song Lyrics of 2011

So I’ve been seriously slacking in my blog posting, but school has been insane these last few weeks and finals are starting up this week, so my life has been a little chaotic.  I promise that I do in fact have big blogging plans for when I am done with my study-a-thon, but I found this link of top song lyrics of 2011 through Ryan Seacrest’s Facebook page and couldn’t resist posting it right this minute.

I personally know the lyrics to 9 of the 10 songs listed here and agree that they are probably some of the most memorable, or at least the worst ones to have stuck in your head for days on end.

By the way for anyone out there who doesn’t follow Ryan on Twitter or Facebook, you totally should because he is always posting stuff way before the public knows about it (i.e. Kardashian divorce, up and coming YouTube-ers, etc..). You guys know how much I love me some celeb gossip!!

So here’s the list of songs and their lyrics…and if you want to check out the actual page this came from click here.

It was the teen anthem of the year, empowering youth everywhere to find their voice, and make the most of their talents.

‘Cause baby you’re a firework
Come on, show’em what you’re worth
Make ‘em go oh, oh, oh
As you shoot across the sky

With simple words, this chorus captured the feeling of knee-buckling devotion to a person but barely eduring the agony of finding that feeling isn’t reciprocal.

See I would go through all this pain
Take a bullet straight through my brain
Yes I would die for ya, baby
But you won’t do the same

The lyrics were the subject of much scrutiny in 2011, critics saying they sparked upsetting images of Columbine and Virginia Tech. Whatever their meaning, they were lyrics that found their way onto the tongues of anyone listening to pop or rock radio this year.

All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
You better run, better run, outrun my gun
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
You better run, better run, faster than my bullet

2011 was the year of Chris Brown’s resurgence and it was led by the these first braggadocios words from his first single of the year.

Yellow model chick, yellow bottle sippin’
Yellow Lamborghini, yellow top missin’
Yeap yeap, that s*** look like a toupee
I get what you get in 10 years, in two days

The words may have first been rapped by Nicki Minaj, but they were immortalized online by teen queens Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez who rapped their own versions of the songbefore it was made a single by Minaj.

Excuse me, you’re a hell of a guy
You know I really got a thing for American guys
I mean, sigh, sickenin’ eyes
I can tell that you’re in touch with your feminine side

There’s very little to say about this catchy part of the song that swept Summer except that it undoubtedly helped every music lover discover their inner falsetto.

Moo-OOO-oo-OOO-ooves like Jagger…

A rock solid anthem for anyone who’s been through a bad break-up, the lyrics of this song take the theme of Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive” and sprinkle in a couple expletives for an angry yet rewarding sing-off.

I see you drive around town with the girl I love
And I’m like forget you
I guess the change in my pocket wasn’t enough
And I’m like forget you and forget him too

Trending on Twitter for over a day, these lyrics from hip hop’s best wordsmiths were the talk of the web last month when it was revealed that Kanye West wasn’t saying “cray” as in “crazy,” but rather “Kray” as in the crime lord brothers who wreaked havoc in London in the 50s and 60s.

Ball so hard muhf***as wanna fine me
That s*** Kray
That s*** Kray
That s*** Kray

Sorry, we’ll explain this one as soon as we scrape our hearts off the floor.

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you, too
Don’t forget me, I begged, I remember you said
Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead

Though not the most liked song of 2011, this viral masterpiece made a firm imprint on the brain of every man, woman and child within earshot of a computer in 2011 and while many laugh at 14-year-old Rebecca Black, she’s laughing all the way to the bank.

It’s Friday, Friday
Gotta get down on Friday
Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend, weekend
Friday, Friday
Gettin’ down on Friday
Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend
