2 Thoughts to “Top 100 Songs of 2012”

  1. Nice to see Tallest Man on Earth so high on the list. 1904, & To Just Grow Away are my favorites from his latest. Soulsavers and Tribes were sort of under-appreciated on year-end lists, great that they made the cut here!

    Must have missed Here We Go Magic, thanks for sharing that track. As last year, I took the liberty of using your top 100 banner, and linked back to your site, hope that’s ok.

    1. Thanks for checking it out. Not a bad list yourself!
