My Favorite Songs of 2012

Do you ever go way back in your music collection and listen to songs that you haven’t heard in years? That’s what happened to me this year after I resorted my hard drive and had to re-rate all of my iTunes music. I’m still not quite done (it’s a slow process) but I’ve really enjoyed finding hidden gems that I had forgotten about.

That said, I think I was able to figure out my favorite songs that I heard for the first time this year. Thanks to all of you who recommended this music, especially Erin H, as a bunch of these songs came from her excellent taste. If you have any other songs from these artists that you’d recommend, let me know.
