Really?? If this is music please kill me now! I honestly thought the "Call me maybe" song was supposed to be funny??? Is it a real song??

Just because radio plays the song over and over doesn't make it good. Seriously "we are young" and "call me maybe" the biggest pieces of fluff to hit the air. Call me maybe was designed for little girls.

It comes to no surprise that there were only 4 songs from this entire list that can be considered the 'best' of 2012. The rest is precisely the reason why I listen to other genres (world music) or RETRO. I knew the millennium would be such a constant disappointment.

What about "Too Close" by Alex Clare?

Wow, if the is the "best" on offer, no wonder the music industry is in the toilet. But of course, this list in no way represents most of what was actually put out this year., just what the commercial music pushers put forth. The good stuff is out there, just not HERE.

Year in Review: Best songs of 2012

1. Bruce Springsteen, "We Take Care of Our Own"

With its galloping drums and air-raid-siren guitar and synth riffs, the opening track of Springsteen's emotionally and politically charged "Wrecking Ball" put fans on high alert: An S.O.S. against social chaos and injustice, this urgent rocker wrapped rage and resilience into a call to arms that echoed the outsider solidarity and lyric irony of the Boss' '80s signature, "Born in the U.S.A." In a compass reading from "shotgun shack to the Superdome," it invoked the failed response to Hurricane Katrina (a tipping point in Springsteen's resurgent social and political acuity) before going on to challenge -- and inspire -- social conscience and sense of community. This is rock taken to a higher purpose, and all the more exhilarating for that.
