Here are the songs that I think are the finest that I had the opportunity to hear in 2012. If you want to see the other 10, go here.
Sister Toldja, one of my favorite writers, wrote a post today in which she lists five songs that are her essential heartbreak songs. It’s a very good list.
I wanted to do my own little list because though I’m sorta known for my adulation of singledom, my disdain for marriage (eff gay marriage, we should just abolish ALL marriage), and my general frustration with how we make love and relationships harder than they really need to be, my favorite kind of song is actually the sad love song. My mother says it’s because I have an old soul. I like to think it’s because I just love the blues.
Either way, here are seven of my essential heartbreak songs after the jump.
Almost to the home stretch, folks. Twelve through 7 after the jump.
