The Best Songs of 2012 (Amazon MP3) 

When it came to songs, our staff picked Delta Spirit’s driving rock ‘n’ roll heartbreaker “California” as the best song of 2012, while our customers flocked to Carly Rae Jepsen’s unstoppable hit “Call Me Maybe” (we actually loved it too–it came in at #16 on our list). Besides those two, we also loved songs by The Lumineers and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, while customers preferred Gotye and fun. Discover more of the year’s best and bestselling songs.

The Best Songs of 2011

Cee LoIt’s unanimous! There was never really a question though, was there? Everyone seems to agree that Adele’s masterful neo-soul hit “Rolling in the Deep” was the best song of 2011. Besides Adele, we loved songs from The Naked and Famous and M83, while customers preferred LMFAO and Maroon 5. Discover more of the year’s best andbestselling songs.

The Best Alternative and Indie Rock

Tune-YardsM83Driven by her powerful, emotive voice, Merril Garbus’ tUnE-yArDs really stunned us this year with their sophomore effort, while our favorite 2011 song is an epic, catchy, atmospheric synth jam (including an awesome sax solo) by dream pop purveyors M83. Discover more of our left-of-the-dial favorites in these lists:

The Best Country Music

Lady AntebellumLuke BryanLady Antebellum tops our country chart again this year with their album Own the Night as does Luke Bryan who delivered the upbeat country album Tailgates and Tanlines compiled of some fun hit singles. Explore these lists for more of our country picks:

The Best Pop

BeyonceEllie GouldingAside from the utterly dominant performance of Adele, 2011 brought us plenty of pop that was more than just bubble gum, including the slow burn of Beyonce’s latest and Ellie Goulding’s electric dance party. See what else popped for us in 2010:

The Best Blues

Gary Clark JrEtta JamesThere’s no better category than the blues for lauding great recordings from artists at the beginning and the end of their careers. Though still in his twenties, Gary Clark Jr’s Bright Lights hit the mark this year, as did the arresting, final offering from the one of the greatest; Etta James. Here’s the full list:

The Best Classical

Beethoven: Diabelli VariationsRojotangoOuterborogh

We can’t put the Diabelli Variations, or Rojotango down even though they topped the leaderboard in the first half of 2011, but they’re joined by spectacular new competition. Outerborough from Todd Reynolds sparkles with originality, but at the same time shows his eclectic, well-honed influences, not least of which comes from another winner this year; Steve Reich.
