Time for the 3rd annual System has been disrupted favourite songs of 2012. I’ve limited it to one song per artist, (although a couple of people sneak onto the list twice as featured artists) which proved tough for artists like Killer Mike and Frank Ocean, who were responsible for my two favourite albums of the year. At the moment, the tracks featured on this list by these artists are my favourite but if you asked me last week what my favourite track was, they could easily been replaced by other tracks from these two standout albums. Some of these tracks were under-exposed, others like Gangnam Style couldn’t be avoided. I'm just pleased that I don't live in Korea anymore, otherwise I would have had to learn that dance for sure. Anyway, here's my 50 favourite songs (not necessarily the best) in alphabetical order.
