Todd’s Tops of 2012

There were a lot of songs from 2012 that I enjoyed, but not a lot of albums.  Maybe because I can only listen to so much new music without getting jaded or maybe it is still a time for singles.  Or maybe, just maybe, I didn’t hear your favorite record yet and haven’t been converted.  All of my top picks have been playing this game for a while, and all of them delivered some nice additions to their catalogues this year. ..and all of them are older white males, which, I guess is no suprise there.  (My fiance often gets tired of my “old white man music.”)  No new artists swooped in and blew me away by putting together a cohesive collection of songs, but these older guys got some stuff right, thus making my top albums list.  Below my top album picks are a few top songs of the year.  Cheers.
