    Since these are always a roaring success, here are my top 100 songs of 2012. :eyes:

    Though I'm sure ameraal and Funky will approve, be warned there is rather a lot of dance/house here.

    On that last note there won't be a drawn out countdown this time. There's only so much adulation one can type about obscure dance acts before it becomes repetitive. Secondly, the last few years have shown that most of Moopy won't have even heard of half of it. :D :(

    So anyway here is my top 100:

    100. Maria Minerva - The Sound
    99. Keyshia Cole - Enough of No Love
    98. Drake feat. The Weeknd - Crew Love (Star Slinger's Jersey Refix)
    97. Nina Sky - Heartbeat
    96. Deniz Kurtel feat. Pillowtalk and Thugfucker - Blackness
    95. The Knocks - Learn to Fly
    94. Panama - It's Not Over
    93. Chairlift - Sidewalk Safari
    92. Dimitri From Paris & DJ Rocca - Pretty Baby (feat. Hard Ton)
    91. High Contrast - Reach
    90. Soft War - Taken Liberty
    89. Cassie - King of Hearts (Richard X Remix)
    88. Disclosure - The Law of One (Loverush UK Remix)
    87. Miguel - Do You…
    86. Jon Convex - Fade (G. Vump Remix)
    85. Anna Lunoe & Flume - I Met You
    84. Jonas Rathsman - Tobago
    83. Zulu - Kwame
    82. U-Tern - You Don't Know Me
    81. Elliphant - Down on Life

    do you know I really wanted to like that "Au Seve" track but I just couldn't get into it. Amazing hook but then too repetitive for my casual listening. I think if I'd have discovered it in Ibiza dancing in the moonlight or SOME SUCH I'd have quite a different opinion.

    "Benediction" seems a little low.

    I really like it but its taken a while to grow on me. There's something missing that I can't put my finger on that stops it being a complete :disco: frenzy.

    it's very slow and understated. It's the kind of deep disco house I miss from the 90s. It feels like the right time to bring it back as well, with R&B and dance going 90s recently. It took a bit of time to grow on me too but it's now one of my 2012 faves. I normally bore of random dance tracks quickly if I don't have clubbing memories of them but that one is surviving on my current listening playlist a long time :disco:

    Is that Elizabath Fraser on the School Of Seven Bells track? :o

    it's so fantastically mid-80s teen angst. Reminds me of what Groove Armada did on their last album with SaintSaviour - like a soundtrack to a bratpack movie...

    I actually desperately need more dance music in my life, and I think I might use this list as a starting point.

    oh you CANNOT go wrong. I'm yet to stumble on a bad track and I'm 30 songs in (I do already know and love half of them though)

    I've never noticed the resemblance before but no it's their lead vocalist Alejandra. I did have to double check though. :o

    if you're able to share any of these more obscure tracks I'd be forever grateful... I've already spent upwards of a tenner on individual tracks on Amazon!

    Saint Lou Lou are Swedish/Australian twin sisters that seem to have popped up from nowhere this year. I discovered them by chance on the Kitsuné Maison 14 compilation. I don't think they've released much else apart from 'Maybe You'.

    Unicorn Kid and Jonas Rathsman need to be added to the retro house thread...

    I like the look/sound of this Jhené Aiko as well... is she new or been around for ages? Somewhere between Erykah Badu and Lianne La Havas...

    I've just discovered that Goldroom (aka. 'Fifteen') and Saint Lou Lou did a collaboration at the end of November. On first listen I'm liking it A LOT.

    All done except Royksopp. I don't think it's been released yet so all I have is a mp3 rip of a live tv performance.
