I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and ate a lot and gained a whole bunch of weight because I certainly did and I refuse to be alone in this predicament. :p
I can’t believe how quick 2012 flew past! It’s actually quite shocking and I feel time just slipped through my fingers. There’s so much I learned about myself and the music industry this year. Music has helped me grow into a stronger person all my life and this year was no exception. 2012 saw the emergence of brand new artists as well as great comebacks from artists we all know and love.
My personal favourite artist of the year is definitely Lana Del Rey. She gets all the awards in my book. I’m sure if you’ve been reading my blog or following my Facebook page, you know how obsessed I am. My God I really need to stop praising this woman.
I really loved Muse’s comeback with ‘Madness’. It’s the most consuming song I’ve heard all year and whenever I listen to it I feel as if I’m floating in space or something. Muse never do disappoint. Matt Bellamy is a genius and that is all.
‘Skyfall’ was another one of my most beloved songs of 2012. Not only did I love the movie, but the song kept haunting me for weeks and still gives me goosebumps whenever I listen to it. Dammit Adele, Y U SO TALENTED?
I also loved listening to Azealia Banks, Daley and of course Ellie Goulding. Daley has been one of the artists who has impressed me the most with his songs ‘Alone Together’ and ‘Remember Me’ ft Jessie J. If you’re into R&B, you definitely need to check him out.
Rihanna has had a great year with ‘Diamonds’ and ‘Where Have You Been’. I don’t know if it’s the joy of being back with Chris Brown, but her music has seriously improved. So has Chris’ actually, since I have a special place in my heart for his 2012 hit ‘Don’t Wake Me Up’.
I seriously cannot sit here and compile all the music I loved in 2012 because there’s just too much. The list is endless and I do not have enough fingers to be able to accomplish that kind of typing. I think this video will sum it all up beautifully! It’s a little long but oh so worth it!
However, I think in the end Psy ended up being the biggest boss of 2012 with Gangnam Style. Seriously. No one can beat this guy.
