Song of the Week (2012)
1949 7.9 01. Nevermind - Nirvana
Jan 2-Jan 8
This song never gets old for me.
2 7 02. Covered Up With Flowers - Lissie
Jan 9-Jan 15
This song seems to get some great covers, including this one.
74 8.1 03. Wasting Light - Foo Fighters
Jan 16-Jan 22
Feb 20-Feb 26
Still popped up this year (twice!) though I listened to this album like crazy last year.
1120 7.7 04. The Bends - Radiohead
Jan 23-Jan 29
Didn't get into Radiohead till this year, oddly enough. Love this whole album.
6 7.7 05. 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.
26 8.6 06. 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.
49 8.6 07. Ceremonials - Florence And The Machine
Feb 13-Feb 19
Stunning song, made a comeback to my playlist after a few months. Great for workouts.
3 9 08. 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.
144 7.2 09. 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.
43 8 010. Dire Straits - Dire Straits
Mar 26-Apr 1
Classic album, still amazing after more than 3 decades.
15 6.5 011. 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.
8 7 012. Nothing But The Beat - David Guetta
Apr 16-Apr 22
I love Sia's voice. Another one of her guest appearances.
5 7.3 013. 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.
37 7.6 014. 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.
5 8.2 015. 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.
89 7.6 016. 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.
2 8 017. 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.
25 8.5 018. 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.
8 8.3 019. 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.
189 8.3 020. 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.
115 7.5 021. 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.
68 7 022. 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.
3 8.5 023. 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.
5 9 024. 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.
2 8 025. 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.
12 7.8 026. Before the Robots - Better Than Ezra
Oct 22 - Oct 28
Oct 29 - Nov 4
Love, love this song. Have loved it for years.
8 6.7 027. King Animal - Soundgarden
Nov 5 - Nov 11
Soundgarden are back with a very good album.
109 7.9 028. MTV Unplugged Alanis Morissette - Alanis Morissette
Nov 12 - Nov 18
Alanis works her magic on a classic by The Police
