Favorite Songs of 2012: Part 2 (50-1)

favorite songs of 2012

You will have to take these list rankings with a grain of salt, because although I tried my best to accurately arrange the tracks, I change it every time I listen to one of the songs.

I also only included my favorite song from each artist, so there are no doubles (except for I think one person, but they were part of two different groups).  A few songs are also technically from before 2012, but they all appear on albums or EP’s released in 2012.

I’ve also made 8tracks playlists for the list Part 1 (100-76), Part 2 (75-51), Part 3 (50-26), Part 4 (25-1) so if you have some time to kill feel free to give them all a listen. And if you missed them, you can find my Favorite Albums of the year here, watch my Favorite Music Videos of the year here, and listen to Part 1 of this list HERE.
