Esquire’s 50 Songs Every Man Should Be Listening To

A few disqualifying factors for "songs a man should be listening to": Any song we fell asleep listening to didn't make the list. Or any song that sounds like it's being sung by someone who sounds like they're about to fall asleep. Or any song that features a novelty instrument, such as a poorly played French horn. Or any song that is a slow, acoustic cover of a song that was originally played fast. Or any song that makes us feel worse about ourselves and the world and music in general. Any song that isn't good, is what we're trying to say. [By Andy Langer]

Here is a few of the selection [For more titles: Best New Songs of 2011]

Watch host of ’s “Guide to 50 Songs Every Man Should Be Listening To” and her mile-long legs count down some of the Best Songs of 2011 thus far. The dance moves that impress her most: “Pop-and-locking, ticking. The moonwalk. Tricks like that.”

According to Esquire, the songs guys should be listening to were actually recorded by a bunch of people you’ve probably never heard of. Titles by Brett Dennen, Jamaica, and The Decemberists are featured prominently in the countdown… but it’s not like you will notice. []
