This song never gets old for me.

This song seems to get some great covers, including this one.

3. Wasting Light - Foo Fighters
Jan 16-Jan 22

4. The Bends - Radiohead
Jan 23-Jan 29

Didn't get into Radiohead till this year, oddly enough. Love this whole album.

5. California 37 - Train
Jan 30-Feb 5

Even though Last.fm tells me I listened to this more than a few times, this song has faded from my memory already.

People who added this item 27  Average listal rating (12 ratings) 8.6  IMDB Rating
6. Woodface - Crowded House
Feb 6-Feb 12
Feb 27-Mar 4

Another classic. I listened to their greatest hits more than a few times during this period.

People who added this item 49  Average listal rating (37 ratings) 8.5  IMDB Rating
7. Ceremonials - Florence And The Machine
Feb 13-Feb 19

Stunning song, made a comeback to my playlist after a few months. Great for workouts.
Abhi's rating:

8. Fitzcarraldo - The Frames
Mar 5-Mar 11
Mar 12-Mar 18
Apr 9-Apr 15

Discovered the Frames this year and love them! I think Glen Hansard is now one of my favourite musicians given his great work with this band, The Swell Season and his new solo work.

9. Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We? - The Cranberries
Mar 19-Mar 25

One of my favourite albums from the 90s made it's way back to my playlist with a vengeance this year.
Abhi's rating:

People who added this item 47  Average listal rating (33 ratings) 7.9  IMDB Rating
10. Dire Straits - Dire Straits
Mar 26-Apr 1

Classic album, still amazing after more than 3 decades.
Abhi's rating:

People who added this item 16  Average listal rating (10 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating
11. Sailing to Philadelphia - Mark Knopfler
Apr 2-Apr 8

This is only Mark Knopfler solo album that I gave a listen to outside of his work with Dire Straits. Not up to the best of Straits but very good regardless.
Abhi's rating:

People who added this item 7  Average listal rating (3 ratings) 7  IMDB Rating
12. Nothing But The Beat - David Guetta
Apr 16-Apr 22

I love Sia's voice. Another one of her guest appearances.

People who added this item 5  Average listal rating (3 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating
13. Avengers Assemble - Various Artists
Apr 23-Apr 29
Apr 30-May 6
May 21-May 27
Jul 9-Jul 15
Jul 16-Jul 22

5 appearances (by July)! This isn't quite the best song ever by Soundgarden but even mediocre Soundgarden is better than 90% of the bands out there, in my opinion.
Abhi's rating:

People who added this item 41  Average listal rating (29 ratings) 7.7  IMDB Rating
14. El Camino - The Black Keys
May 7-May 13
Aug 27-Sep 2
Sep 3-Sep 9

Awesome song, hilarious video, damn good album too.


Oct 8-Oct 14

Another awesome song from the same album. The only album with 2 entries on this list.
Abhi's rating:

People who added this item 5  Average listal rating (5 ratings) 8.2  IMDB Rating
15. Neck of the Woods - Silversun Pickups
May 14-May 20

This is one of the best albums of 2012. SSPU have really made a musical leap forward this time around.
Abhi's rating:

People who added this item 88  Average listal rating (47 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating
16. Wonder What's Next - Chevelle
May 28-June 3

The best hard rock/metal album this year. This song is great but so is the rest of the album.
Abhi's rating:

People who added this item 2  Average listal rating (1 ratings) 8  IMDB Rating
17. Bear Creek - Brandi Carlile
Jun 4-Jun 10

Brandi Carlile returns with her best album since her debut 6 years ago. Sounds fresher and livelier than any of her albums since the first one.
Abhi's rating:

People who added this item 25  Average listal rating (17 ratings) 8.5  IMDB Rating
18. The Hunger Games: Songs from District 12 and... - Arcade Fire, The Secret Sisters, Neko Case, Taylor Swift, The Civil Wars, Kid Cudi, Punch Brothers,
Jun 11-Jun 17
Jul 2-Jul 8
Aug 6-Aug 12

The movie was pretty good and the soundtrack was better. This song really got stuck in my head.

19. Love Will Tear Us Apart - Joy Division
Jun 18-Jun 24

Another classic tune. I'm not a Joy Division fan but this song is awesome, has such great atmosphere.
Abhi's rating:

People who added this item 198  Average listal rating (123 ratings) 8.3  IMDB Rating
20. Exile on Main St. - The Rolling Stones
Jun 25-Jul 1

The best RS album? Possibly, though they have at least half a dozen stunning ones. This song features Keith Richards on lead vocals for a change.
Abhi's rating:

21. So Jealous - Tegan and Sara
Jul 23-Jul 29
Jul 30-Aug 5
Sep 17-Sep 23

I've been meaning to listen to this band for years and I finally did it. Love this song, my favorite by them so far.
Abhi's rating:

People who added this item 68  Average listal rating (29 ratings) 7  IMDB Rating
22. In Your Honor - Foo Fighters
Aug 13-Aug 19

Overall, a mediocre album, especially the second disc, but the first disc has some great songs including this one.

People who added this item 3  Average listal rating (2 ratings) 8.5  IMDB Rating
23. Rhythm And Repose - Glen Hansard
Sep 10-Sep 16

Love this song, though the album doesn't match up to his best stuff with either The Frames or The Swell Season.
Abhi's rating:

People who added this item 5  Average listal rating (2 ratings) 9  IMDB Rating
24. Night on My Side - Gemma Hayes
Oct 1-Oct 7

I've loved this song from the very first time I heard it, some five years ago.
Abhi's rating:

25. Be The Void - Dr. Dog
Oct 15-Oct 21

This awesome song was discovered thanks to my cousin, who has good taste in music for the most part.
