List Planet’s Top 50 Songs of 2012

Because god forbid we actually leave the year in music 2012 alone, we’re back with a (presumably) final post to pay tribute to the year that was–our list of the best 50 songs it spawned. We’ve drawn these from all genres, and haven’t ordered them in any particular way. They also don’t necessarily parallel our Best Albums list. (Oh hi, Ke$ha!) But in any case, here are the 50 songs that we felt shook things up the most in 2012.

  1. Hey there, I think your website might be having browser
    compatibility issues. When I look at your blog site in
    Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, superb blog!
