    Thumbs up YOUR 10 best songs of 2012

    I started this thread last year and enjoyed your responses. I think it's especially appropriate in a year of so many lackluster albums. Remember, this about individual tracks. Don't worry if the song is not representative of the album or if this artist might go down as a one-hit wonder. Here are the rules:

    • Try to list 10 songs if you can.
    • The song should have been a track on a new studio album/EP in 2012 or have been released as a new single in 2012.
    • List both the song title and the artist name.
    • Include no more than 2 songs from the same artist.
    • If you are the first person to post this track, consider including a YT embed or link.

    #. Artist Name - Song title

    Or #. Song Title - Artist Name.

    Switching between two formats is confusing. And you've got a pyramid fixation.

    Oh yeah, fucking SLEEPLESS. I swear, the part in that song where the beat first kicks in is quite possibly the best thing in music I've heard all year.
