FPT's Top 100 Songs of 2012

I am finally getting around to this list two weeks into 2013, and now I am pretty excited about it and can't wait to get it loaded onto a Spotify Playlist.  This list is strictly filled with the music that I personally (James) listened to and enjoyed in 2012.  The other writers here at FPT have their own taste and likes and dislikes, and to make a list such as this it takes passion for listening to music and sharing your believes and feelings of what you are hearing. 

For me 2012 was a very strong year overall in the world of music, and featured some solid tunes from some new comers as well as music vets.  Japandroids really stole my heart this past year and some solid newcomers such as French Films, Peace, Palma Violets, and Lord Huron all have me on the edge of my seat for what is to come in 2013.
