My Top 5 Songs of 2012

Even though the on air talent at KEXP was gushing about how wonderful 2012 was for music, I found the music this year to half as good as 2011 or 2010. With that in mind, I’ve decided to just do a TOP 5 list this year instead of a TOP 10.

#1 Simple Song by The Shins

I love this song and the especially the video.

#2 Watch the Corners by Dinosaur Jr.

A new release my all-time favorite band. What is not to love?

#3 Emmylou by First Aid Kit

Never thought a country sounding song would make my Top songs list, but this song is the perfect mix of dream pop and twang.

#4 Blow Me (One Last Kiss) by P!nk

P!ink delivers another perfectly engineered dance pop song.

#5 Capricornia by Allo Darlin’

My favorite song of the summer.

Bonus: What You Wanted by Seapony

OK maybe 5 songs wasn’t enough, I liked this dream pop song just as much as Capricornia. Score it as a Bonus or tied for #5.
