TOP 50 SONGS OF 2012

Here we go. The top 50 songs of 2012 according to, well, me. So obviously it’s super important!! It may be a surprise that some songs aren’t here, but if you’ve seen my previous posts, you’ll know that I whipped up a few other lists to cater for the ridiculous number of great tunes, so tracks like Clarity by Zedd (ft Foxes), We Love It by Icona Pop (ft Charil XCX), and remixes such as Calvin Harris’ flawless work on Florence And The Machine’s Spectrum, can be found elsewhere. They definitely have not been forgotten.

Anyway, let’s go. Anyone who has followed this blog since the start of the year would be well aware of my obsession love for Of Monsters And Men, and their smashing break out song Little Talks. It should come as little to no surprise therefore, that that is my song of the year. The death of a song usually comes from incessant listening, yet this track seems to be the exception to the rule because I never tire of the joy it brings.

The rest of the list was near impossible to decide, and the order can change at any given moment, but let’s lock this in.
