FPT Best Songs of 2012 (So Far)

The best part about owning a music blog/website is the idea that you can have an outlet to share with others the music that you truly enjoy.  It is also about supporting the artist and their talents and giving honest heartfelt feedback on the art that they have created.  2012 has been a kind year so far for the world of music, and as the internet continues to make it possible for more and more talent to get their music in the hands (or ears) of fans, we will continue to be blessed to hear more great songs. 

To be fair as a music fan there is only so much you can listen to, so obviously there might be some omissions just based on time and not getting the chance to listen to those particular tracks.  Below I have compiled my top 50 tracks so far from 2012 that I did have a chance to listen to and enjoy.
