The winner of Music Madness' song of the year 2011 is:
Coldplay - Charlie Brown
Despite not having been released as a single yet (it's set to be in the new year), Charlie Brown boasts an infectious guitar line, driving power from the bass and drums, and an all-round sense of grandiosity. Mylo Xyloto (the album it is taken from) may not have been the #1 album of 2011 for me, but this song will never grow old. Absolutely mind-blowing.
The song will remain in the 'Songs of the Week' section of the blog until 2nd January, when we'll be back to normal weekly service.
