December: The reason for the season is lists—and every person with an opinion about anything forcing them down your throat.
I AM NO EXCEPTION.
I’ll be doing a series of these, but here is the first (and most important to me): my favorite records of 2012. If you like them, buy them from your local record broker.
Also, if you are interested, I made a playlist of my favorite Rdio-available songs. There are 119 of them. Take a listen.
