Top 100 Songs of 2012

Right, so, a short disclaimer about how this is in no way intended to be a definitive list and that the author does not seek to punish any artists by omission, yadda, yadda.  Basically, these were, of all the hundreds (well, over two thousand actually) new songs I listened to from 2012, the most 'sticky'.  This was the soundtrack, more or less, of my year.  It would have been nice to leave a short write up for each song here, but I can only do so much in the time I have.  Also, feel free to respond.  Agree? Disagree?  What did I forget or leave out? Just want to make a smart ass joke?  Comments are welcome here as everywhere on Paranoid Hitsophrenic.
