Top Ten Favorite Songs of 2012

Last year I had fun pondering the songs that I played a ton all year long, and so this year, I had to do it again! Remember these aren't necessarily new songs, but the songs that I loved, discovered, re-discovered and wore out the track of during this past year!

1. Gotye: Somebody I Used to Know

2. Adele: Set Fire to the Rain

3. Dead Man's Bones: Lose Your Soul

4. Muse: Unsustainable

5. Adam Lambert: Outlaws of Love

6. Rush: The Garden

7. The Wanted: Chasing the Sun

  8. Maroon 5: One More Night

9. Richard Armitage and the dwarves from The Hobbit: The Misty Mountains Cold

10. The Dark Knight Rises Soundtrack: Rise


Are there any that were your favorites of the year too?


  1. Great list! I love Gotye's song, but the video makes it even better!

  2. lol oh yes to number one, i listened to that song so many times :)

  3. Sweet....I add videos to them all and only three show up?

  4. Okay, well, I've fixed that now. All videos should show up I hope. Just in case anyone wanted to actually hear the songs I've loved!

  5. Good list! That is my favorite version of Set Fire to the Rain and if I was making at list it would definitely be on it.

    As would "I Don't Love You" by The Civil Wars (and perhaps everything by them as they have been a group I have listened to a bunch this year).


    New York by Snow Patrol

    Brighter than the Sun by Colbie Caillat (that video was a constant on my step aerobics playlist all year long)

    and pretty much everything by Lisa Hannigan off her first two albums and ditto that from Helen Jane Long.

  6. I haven't listened to much music this year, something I'll definitely change in 2013.

    1. Ann: I can't live without music... sort of like books. They are both pretty much needed for survival at my house.

  7. I can't help but wonder if the Muse song would be as good with out the video. Love that hobbit song. Gives me chills every time.

    1. Jenny: It's as good. I love to blast in the car. Makes me feel like I'm on a rollercoaster at Disneyland. The dwarves give me chills too....

  8. Hi Suey, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  9. Rush - The Garden. Where did you hear that one?

  10. My plan was to do a music wrap-up type post, too, but I am behind on most things!
