Top 40 Tracks of 2012


Getintothis presents the top tracks and singles which have rattled our jukebox in 2012.

Last week Getintothis brought you our annual Top 100 albums of the year, and today it’s the turn of our end of year tracks.
Like last year it’s brimming with Liverpool talent, which in part is a reflection of how much Liverpool music we’ve listened to this year since establishing the GIT Award. However, it’s also a reflection of how much great music is emanating from round these parts.
As usual there’s a few picks which weren’t essentially singles, but are deserving of attention. As always, feel free to leave your selections.
