50 Favorite Songs of 2012

Year after year, I’m surprised by how many enjoyable songs there are. I listened to a lot of music in 2012 and discovered more goodies in December alone. I posted each song as a list first in order to appreciate each one. Plus, music streaming services don’t have all of them together for one playlist. If you prefer a continuous playlist, you can stream a SoundCloud list of 48 at the bottom, as well as a Spotify list of 100+ that I keep updating. My Fave Albums of 2012 are on Amazon. Happy listening!
