Best Songs of 2012

These songs are my picks for the best of what 2012 had to offer on an individual songs basis. Using what I value in the music I listen to, this is a compilation of the songs that I either listened to the most this year, most enjoyed and/or was most impressed by. Many of the songs I selected for this list had qualities that stood out to me either through production and presentation, the lyrics, or just how darned irresistibly catchy they were, and there were a lot of them. Unlike most other years, I didn’t have a single clear favourite song as there were several that I loved and considered as this year’s best. Take a look!
