Best Music of 2012

Posted by on Tuesday, December 4, 2012

Every year I listen to so much music and then by the time December rolls around I've usually forgotten what I listened to in January. . . but not this year. This year I started making my list in January. I used the sticky note app on my desktop and wrote down every song and album I liked. I'm a nerd. 
This year (like most years) was a great year for music.
