2012 has been a good year for music. Great albums, great songs. Here is my pick of favorites. And no I'm not going to elaborate why on each one. I've wrote a lot on each one of these artists over the year so use the little search function at the top of the page and search for them if you want to hear everything.
And yes these are in order from number 5 to 1.
(Also these opinions are mine... not everyone has to agree)
5. Fun "Some Nights"
4. Jack White "Sixteen Saltines"
3. Bruce Springsteen "We Take Care of Our Own"
2. Mumford & Sons "I Will Wait"
1. Easily is Alabama Shakes "Hold On"
