Best Dance Songs of 2012

LockahLockah
This list concludes AiMT 2012. Here are 46 of the 50 entries in a Spotify playlist. (I included an additional bottom four entries not mentioned here just to get it up to an even 50.) It's been real. Now to get caught up on the first few weeks of 2013 releases.



For the bottom 25, I've included streams linked in the entry numbers. SoundCloud, YouTube, Bandcamp, etc. (No Spotify, as to not piss off Canadians.) A few are just preview clips, but most of them are full streams.
