SHIGERU’S 20 FAVORITE TRACKS OF 2012

2012 MUSIC

It’s that time of the year again when every blog known to man posts its favorite lists, and yes, I am doing the same. Coming this week will be a slue of different posts regarding my favorite songs and albums of the year as a way for me to post what I have been listening to year long, and even though you may not have the same taste in music as I do, maybe you can learn or show me something both of us never knew.

Today marks my favorite songs of the year. There are twenty total and they all sort of add up to make a “Songs of 2012” playlist. They are not posted in any specific order, but rather just by the random sleuth of the music gods. Below, you can view my list and stream the songs for your listening pleasure. And, if you are really inclined to, comment and let me know what your favorite songs of the year were.

Check out the entire list after the jump.
