I agree, nice list...and I will check out a few from that list that I've yet to hear....as soon as project: Spoon delve is over.

Yes, nice list. We have the same two favourite tracks from the Tallest Bloke album. Huge props for putting BBNG2 in there, and up so high too. Will be on my list.

Spinning Fin on Spotify. I like it.

Yeah, I liked reading through the list, too.

Gave that Chairlift album a listen recently and there's some good stuff on there, indeed. I get the feeling that's one I'll like more and more as time goes on.

Thanks, guys. It's my favorite 5,000 word essay to write every year.

I could have chosen to not include Shearwater at all, like 95% of lists I've seen.

I'm looking forward to reading that list on the train tomorrow, LM. Also, regarding Shearwater, didn't something similar happen with The Golden Archipelago? It was released early in the year to widespread acclaim, then everyone promptly forgot about it?

You'd think they'd have learned the market by now.

True. Which is why your list doesn't suck as bad as those lists do.

Interesting that Pitchfork's songs list includes Call Me Maybe. Would that have made it five years ago? Seems a bit odd for a website that is supposed to be the beacon for hipsters. Maybe it's post-ironic.

I think it's pretty damn catchy myself.

Checked out that Hey Jane song, that's a beauty. The Usher track as well.

There's a lot of fucking garbage on that list though, almost all of it hip-hop. If Beez in the Trap was the 18th best song of 2012 maybe the Mayans were right.

I think the odds of Call Me Maybe making the list were 1:1.

Don't you remember their best songs of the 2000s list? Crazy In Love, My Love and Ignition (Remix) were all way up there.

Re: the shitty hip-hop on P4k's list, I can't decide if Bandz A Make Her Dance or Beez in the Trap is worse. I'm going with the latter because Lil Wayne's verse in Bands is one of the funniest/most awful things I've ever heard and when I hear that song for the 4th time on our local rap station every day, I usually wait for that part before I turn it.

Waaz ya rreeaaalll naayyymee
Aannnd not ya strippah naaayymeee

I could write a whole post about all the shitty hip-hop I've heard on the radio this year between Frank Ocean, Kendrick Lamar, Miguel and random Cruel Summer tracks, but I'll save you guys the trouble. Suffice it to say that "She got a big booty/So I call her Big Booty" is an actual line in a song now.

Along with Since U Been Gone (in the top 20, if I remember correctly) and Umbrella and Toxic. Songs by Annie and Kylie Minogue. And they put fucking (You Can't Mistake My) Biology on there, too. The beautiful bastards. Maybe their finest moment.

Shit, something like Hey Ya is as much of a goofy, sugary confection as some of those we've listed and it's revered. And rightfully so. Song kicks ass.
