Top 25 Tracks Of 2012 (so far)


Last week I posted my top 25 albums released so far this year. This week I’m once again foregoing my regularly posted Revolving Top Ten and providing you with my Top 25 Tracks so far. You’ll probably notice quite a bit of overlap between albums and songs. That’s to be expected. If it’s a top 25 album, chances are there is at least one top 25 song. Obviously I only chose one song per artist (which made this very tough in some cases). I’ll provide audio embeds where I can to allow you to make a decision on your own of whether or not it belongs here (and YouTube vids for the others).
The order isn’t concrete, but rather the order that I thought of them. Except for “Emmylou” by First Aid Kit, which I said would be the song of the year the first time I heard it.
