Tag Archives: best of 2012


I’ve got my best albums of 2012 ready for Friday, but I have to be honest that I always enjoy putting together my best songs lists.  You might not sit down and listen to your ten or twenty favorite albums at once, but you can relieve the year through single songs in a couple of hours.

My best of ____ mixes (and those throwback one’s made by Dan) are some of my favorite mixes of all time.  If you’re not already making best of ____ mixes, you need to start. Today.  The only rules? One song per artist, and the song was released in some fashion (album, EP, 7″, mp3) in 2012.

In the meantime, check out the list of my favorite songs of the year.  Jams, every single one of them.

It’s list time again folks! And Laura says I can write some lists too!! So here are some lists of some random things – books, records, songs, etc. It’s long but I hope you enjoy it some… either way, it’s the end of the year wrap up!!

Since I write the throwback Thursday section sometimes I get to be the resident cranky person. I love it since I can often be found shaking my fist at baggy pants wearing teenagers who have the gall to walk on my lawn!

Anyway, here is a list of things that are dumb and/or irritating to me right now. They aren’t in any real order except number 1 is probably in the right spot… I would say that this is for the whole 2012 but I can’t remember all the way back an entire year!

Best of 2012 continued.  Fave covers are up, and top tracks and albums will be posted this week.

Keeping the albums separate from the EPs again this year, because how can you judge a 5 song EP to 17 song album?

And let me say, for the millionth time, more EPs please!  Perfect introduction to a new band, perfect release that keeps me happy between full-lengths from a favorite band.  So thank you to these bands/artists for indulging my craze by putting out some excellent EPs.

Kicking off “Best of 2012″ week a little early with my top five cover songs from this year.  Next week, I’ll post my favorite EPs, songs, and albums, along with some of Dan’s favorites (and least favorites) of the year.

As I’ve ranted about before, covers can be a tricky thing, particularly if you’re a fan of the original song.  Too close to the original, and its karaoke.  Too far from the original, and it’s blasphemy. Here are a few I thought hit that sweet spot. Read More
