#BestOf2012 : Top 100 Tracks (100-76)


101-GOTYE FEAT. KIMBRA
Somebody That I Used To Know
(Samples ‘N’ Seconds)

We begin our favourite songs of 2012’s countdown following the tradition of showing the symbolic “number 101”, a place that in former years was reserved for guilty pleasures, but this time is occupied by Australian singer Gotye’s global smash “Somebody That I Used To Know’, which thanks to our Aussie connections we had already enjoyed during the summer of 2011, but didn’t reach our shores until the beginning of the current year.

Among the tracks included in our chart’s first quarter, stars of Britpop return; the best hispanic band of the year and members of US alt favourites Deerhunter and Akron/Family embarking in respective solo projects. Check them here.
