I’m a huge nerd. So I went through my iTunes and picked out a bunch of my favorite “track 11″ songs … you know, like they were the 11th track on their album … and compiled them into five different YouTube playlists.
So there are 55 songs here (all track 11s), and they’re all awesome. Or at least I think so. Just click on the style of music that fits your taste or current mood and let it play. Then, come back here, let me know what you thought, and try another!
