Fergie, Will.i.Am, & More Musicians Share Their Favorite Songs of 2011 [VIDEO]
2011 is quickly winding down, and many of the worlds most famous musicians are heading to New York City to celebrate in Times Square with Ryan Seacrest. Have you ever wanted to know what your favorite musician listens to? Better yet, what is their favorite song of 2011?
Will.i.Am shares, “My favorite song for 2011 is Avicii‘s version of ‘I Gotta Feeling’ which is called ‘Levels.’ The reason why is because I love his use of the Etta James sample, and his melody with the synthesizer is amazing. Ryan, if you could please play more of that so we can give the spotlight more to the guys that create and write beats that connect the world. I like Flo Rida‘s version too, but Avicci’s version…gotta play that more.”
Gym Class Heroes‘ favorite songs of the year ranged from Adele‘s “Set Fire to the Rain” due to “it’s music production” to “Moves Like Jagger” by Maroon 5 “because it’s the only song to prominently feature the whistle which I feel is the first intstrument known to man!”
