Starting 2013 with my favorite music from 2012

I like to listen to music, but I miss a lot of it, so I always end up trolling the internet's year end best-of lists in the hopes of finding some gems. In the interest of paying it forward, here are twenty of my favorite pop songs of 2012. 

As will be obvious, I like to listen to a lot of disco-y club music when I'm drawing.


1. Show Me the Place - Leonard Cohen *I was surprised and affected by this album

2. Built For Love (feat. Romanthony) - Kraak and Smaak 
3. Home - Romy *i like the 'party girl' house sound of this
