Songs of the Year - 2012


an angel

Recommended Posts

It's time for the second annual Songs of the Year thread!

 

Rules:

1. Make a list of 5 to 25 songs, ranked numerically.

1. Eligible songs must have been released between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31 of 2012.

3. The songs can come from any singles, albums, EPs, compilations, or soundtracks, as long as they are original work. No live songs or rereleases.

4. You may list more than one song per artist.

 

Deadline: December 31 2012 at 11:59 pm GMT.

 

I will count up the votes and post the results soon after the deadline.

 

Note that this time I will do the scoring system a little bit differently, the same way that Space Cadet assigned points in her Albums of the Year threads:

 

 

Rank - Points

1 - 500

2 - 425

3 - 375

4 - 325

5 - 300

6 - 275

7 - 250

8 - 230

9 - 210

10 - 200

11 - 190

12 - 180

13 - 170

14 - 160

15 - 150

16 - 145

17 - 140

18 - 135

19 - 130

20 - 125

21 - 120

22 - 115

23 - 110

24 - 105

25 - 100

I dunno, I guess that if enough people join the list, this wouldn't skew the results that much anyway. But on the other hand it seems ... well, strange

Well, it is Strangeland after all. Yeah, I guess most of the other artists I listen to haven't released anything this year.

Thought something was amiss!

 

I think I prefer Howler > Palma Violets > The Vaccines.

 

Although this probably will change in a few days because at the moment I am stanning Howler after interviewing them. Standard pretty much.

This isn't against the rules, but I honestly think this is overkill.

 

Can you class HLH as a 2012 song? :)

 

No. The single may have been released in 2012, but it comes of a 2011 album, so it's classified as a 2011 song.

 

Anyway, as Natt said, I'm going to have to really think about this before I post a list, if I do one at all. I'm so indecisive when it comes to ranking.

R U Mine is definitely on my list, and Electricity probably is too. I don't want to have like 18 songs from one artist so I'll have to sort through which 2nd Law songs are my favorites....

 

Probably 16 Saltines and Love Interrupted for Jack White too....I'll have to come back to this when I have a more comprehensive list:)

 

Also, in the case of Noel Gallagher, does Freaky Teeth count? It's been played live for a while now but is just getting an official release now.
