The Best of 2012: Songs


I've been putting together "best of" lists for this blog for the last four years but this was by far the most difficult. Unlike in years past there was no clear frontrunner. I can't say whether or not 2012 was a better or worse year for music than, say, 2011 but there are only 50 top songs compared to 100 last year. Maybe I've just become more selective or maybe the pickings were slimmer this year. Either way there were some extraordinary standouts which I've comprised into The Top 50 Songs of 2012.
