This episode of Cyprus showcases some of host Bill Shapiro's top picks of 2011. With new releases from Hugh Laurie and Paul Simon, along with a partly-posthumous duet from Tony Bennett & Amy Winehouse, 2011 was a good-sounding year. And, since we can't provide you with the show's audio because of recording industry restrictions, below find some YouTube videos of Cyprus' chosen songs.
