It’s that time of year when you reflect on the songs which had a big impact on you in 2012. You’ll make endless lists, agonise over lyrics and guitar riffs, and the new memories they helped create. It’ll start passionate debate with your mates and remind you of how great the year in music was. Now we want to know: what are YOUR favourite songs of 2012?
Last year you overwhelmingly told us that Gotye’s ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’ was your favourite song of 2011. In 2010 Angus & Julia Stone’s ‘Big Jet Plane’ took out #1. Before that, Mumford & Sons ‘Little Lion Man’ sang its way to the top spot in 2009.
