Top 10 Songs of 2012

Here are my top 10 Songs from 2012. Read em and weep. A cross section of artists and style of music which is just how I like it. I can't put these songs in order but if I had to choose my favourite song it would be between Bat for Lashes and Lanas!

LAURA - Bat for Lashes

I fell in love with this song after the first play. Its a very simple ballad but it just gets to the heart of me. I have never been a huge fan of Natasha Khan but this song is amazing and takes me to another place.


Lana del Rey has been one of my favourite acts this year. I probably played her album more than any other this year. I love the opening lyrics to this song - "I'm your national anthem, God you're so handsome, take me to the Hamptons, Bugatti Veyron". Pure brilliance.


The Best Australian pop song of 2012! I adore Catcall. Catherine Kelleher is amazing and it is obscene that this song has only been viewed 54,000 times on utubes. This woman should be HUGE!!!!!


I fell in love with Kimbra in the first part of 2012. I saw her live at the Enmore Theatre and this was my favourite song from her longplayer.


So I just LOVE LOVE LOVE this song sung by Australian (from my hometown of Adelaide) Sia. The song is by David Guetta but lets be honest the vocal by Sia is KILLER! The song i most heard everytime i walked into a shop in 2012!

STARSHIPS - Nicki Minaj 

This song reminds me of my EuroHoliday and i heard this a number of times while I was overseas.

MY MAN - Oh Mercy 

I was disappointed by the album Deep Heat but it did contain this gem of a song which i played on repeat.

TIMEBOMB - Kylie Minogue 

2012 has been Kylie's year as she celebrated K25. Timebomb was released in the middle of the year and is a fabulous dance track. I managed to see Kylie this year on her Anti Tour and you can read about that here as well as my Kylie K25 post.

HANDS - Alpine 

OK so this technically is a 2011 track but i fell in love with this band this year and they also released their longplayer. Their dreamy vocals and European sound really make me smile.

LEAVING - Pet Shop Boys

The Pets have been going for something like 27 years and they released their Elysium album this year. This was a standout track on Elysium (their 11th studio album) and as a proud Pet Shop Boys Fan Club member I just love Neil and Chris.
