I think everyone's bisexual to some degree or another; it's just a question of whether or not you choose to recognise it and embrace it. Personally, I think choosing between men and women is like choosing between cake and ice cream. You'd be daft not to try both when there are so many different flavours. - Björk
Mathuss' Best Of 2011 - Songs [200-171] + Concerts [10-09]
Thanks for your comments! I'll try to give them back.
Originally, I was expecting to make a Top 100 only, but I had many songs that could not miss my Best Of, so I decided to make a Top 200. Anyways, only Top 100 will be with caps and videos.
Most of the songs of my countdown are singles. There are some non-singles though, but those are the least. Here we have the first set of songs that made Top 200.

Now it's time to continue with my favorite concerts I attended this year. Here we have two concerts I attended for free, lol. Two bands coming from different places and with different styles.

17. Banda De Turistas
16. Broken Social Scene
14. Toro Y Moi
12. The Orchestra (E.L.O.)
11. Primal Scream
#10. Inspiral Carpets
Date: November 11th, 2011 Event I: Movistar Free Music Location: Anfiteatro De Puerto Madero, Buenos Aires
Date: November 12th, 2011 Event II: Inspiral Carpets in concert Location: Samsung Studio, Buenos Aires
I had the opportunity to watch this band live twice in a weekend. Both times I did not pay anything. The first event was the Movistar Free Music, well, I've got nothing to add, it was free for everyone. The following day I won tickets on a radio station I am used to hear, and so I went to watch them again, lol. Both shows were great, the second one was longer because they were the main attraction of the event.
I didn't know this band before the concerts. But, after them, I really fell in love with the band. They have many great tracks, like 'She Comes In The Fall', 'This Is How It Feels', and my favorite 'Saturn 5'. All of them sounded great live.
This ones were the first shows they were playing after several years. You could notice about it because sometimes the singer forgot how the lyrics of the songs went on, lol. But the rest of the band was great. Despite their age, they sounded like many current bands like The Vaccines or The Drums. Maybe those bands were inspired by this old band. I think they are releasing new material in a coulpe of months. I'll be really looking forward to it.

Date: June 8th, 2011 Event: MSTRPLN Cycle Location: Crobar Studio, Buenos Aires
Once again I managed to win tickets for a concert in mtvla.com, lol. This time, Cut Copy was the band playing at Crobar, which is a nightclub located in the middle of Buenos Aires. The place was nice, but as I arrived a little bit late it was already full of people.
Their "support" was DJ Javier Zuker, one of the members of Argentine band Poncho. He is also a DJ, so he kept us dancing until the main band decided to start playing.
The concert was due to be started at 11PM, but they appeared on stage an hour later. Exactly at 12 o'clock Dan Whitford and his band started playing 'Visions' intro followed by 'Nobody Lost, Nobody Found'.
I loved when they played 'So Haunted', 'Take Me Over' and 'Hearts On Fire'. Their biggest hit, 'Lights And Music' woke the audience that was quite quiet up to then. They sounded great, besides it was an indoor place.
They gave a flawless concert with songs from their whole discography. After 'Sun God' they greeted the audience without saying a word, but we all knew that it was not over.
When they came back they played 'Need You Now', one of the best singles out from their latest album Zonoscope, which made the audience dance once again.
The only thing that missed for this concert to be perfect was that they didn't play 'Blink And You'll Miss A Revolution' and 'Feel The Love' (my favorite from them). But I don't complain.
