COUNT EM’ 1, 2…60? 2012

Every December, I look forward to counting down my 50 favorite songs for the year. However, I’m on the Yow Yow 4th birthday train so I’m making it 60 tracks! The task has become a little easier for me this year because I haven’t added any new tracks to my iTunes library so the majority of the songs will be coming from my Spotify playlists and Yow Yow’s Songs of the Day!

There aren’t really any terms that I’ve set for the countdown, but since I run this – I pretty much decide what songs I want to be on the list and it is basically tied to one thing: They are songs that I’ve loved in 2012, but not necessarily released in 2012. And of course they are in no particular order. That’d be impossible!

Here are my favorite 60 songs of 2012:
