Top 50 Songs of 2012


The music scene in 2012 can be characterized by the bold introduction of young artists, the extended use of new social distribution channels, and the continued blurring of genres.

This list is meant to address all genres, both mainstream and underground, and intentionally does not include the same artist twice.
