Music of the Year

A Look Back at 2012

Happy New Year! Hope you all had a good time celebrating, and I hope we have an even better 2013 in music. But first, I thought I’d share the tracks that I enjoyed the most (according to my Last.FM profile) this past year. This is a little different than the playlists I post each month, so I hope this shows another (though general) insight into my musical tastes.

Here is a list of the 100 songs (with more under the cut) that I spent the most time listening to in 2012, starting in order from my most played songs. Unfortunately, Spotify doesn’t have each song in its library so look out for a link to listen to those songs elsewhere.

  2. Something Bigger, Something Better by Amanda Blank
  3. What Makes You Beautiful by One Direction
