2012 has been unbelievable year for music. WIth the EDM scene exploding here in America and superstars of all genres getting recognition it has been a great year all around. Now CMB is big on the EDM side of music and I, myself as a writer for the site, am a huge fan of EDM so my top 5 originally was just going to be just EDM tracks but I wanted to choose songs that pertained to memorable moments of my life in 2012 not just song I like. These tracks are really not in order of one being better then the other, just as a whole these 5 songs were memorable to 2012 for me. So without further a due here is my, RMcSpedon’s, personal top 5 tracks of 2012.
5. “Drunk” – Ed Sheeran
Before I even say anything else, if you haven’t got your hands on his album “+” yet you better check it out because every song off his first album ever is amazing. Most people know his song “A Team” but thats not my top song off his album. This song “Drunk” definitely was played on a lot at the end of a drunk night this year for me. Ed Sheeran’s lyrics are so relatable and I can literally listen to his whole album straight through any day.
4. “MOTA” - Flosstradamus
This track is fire! When Floss came out with his EP I fell in love with this track. Saw them this summer at Mad Decent Block Party and they know how to get the place going. The reason why I put this on my top 5 is because this track got me obsessed with Trap music. You can’t tell me when you hear this track it doesn’t make you wanna break out dancing.
3. “Take a Walk” – Passion Pit
Made In America Festival, that is all I think about when I hear this song. Passion Pit played in Philly at Made in America and literally had everyone frolicking around the Ben Franklin Parkway. One of my happiest moments of 2012 without a doubt. Any song of their new album “Gossamer” is great.
2. “Sovereign Light Café” (Afrojack Remix) – Keane
Again, MADE IN AMERICA is all i think when I hear this track. I know this just was recently release, however Afrojack dropped this at the DJ tent at Made In America and without a doubt I have to say his set was probably the best set I have heard this entire year. I had my doubts about Afrojack before, but after seeing him perform he is unbelievably talented. Another happy moment of 2012 that I will never forget.
1. “Clarity” – Zedd
Zedd blew up this year when he dropped his album “Clarity” and his song named after the album title blew me away. The vocals by Foxes give me the chills and the lyrics bring so much memories of 2012 to mind, lots of good memories and some bad. Regardless love this song and will always remind me of 2012.
