Judgement Day (Special Edition): Pop Heaven’s Top 100 Songs of 2012 (Part 4 of 4)

The time has come! Were about to reveal Pop Heaven’s top 25 songs of 2012! As this year’s chart comes to a close, I find myself reflecting on the journey of actually compiling a year-end chart.

I started off with 188 singles that were released this year by popular music’s heavy hitters from all genres. Additionally, there were plenty of amazing non-singles this year, so I carefully selected the best of the best (hoping that they don’t become runaway hits in 2013 so I won’t regret including them this year) and added those to the pool as well.

From there began the surprisingly arduous task of trying to rank them all. I prayed day and night to the Pop Gods to guide me in my mission. Sometimes I found myself heartbroken to realize that a song I loved would be cut when it slowly slipped over the fine line between #100 and #101. Admittedly, there were many other terrific tracks this year that didn’t make the list.

As always, there were some oversights and there are a couple of flat-out mistakes that I wish I could go back and amend, but once it’s been published it’s Pop Gospel so it’s time to let go of regret and move on with our  top 25!

Judgement Day (Special Edition): Pop Heaven’s Top 100 Songs of 2012 (Part 3 of 4)

We’re still counting down The Pop Gods’ Top 100 songs of 2012. It was a fantastic year for singles, with the ongoing dance-pop trend still cranking out lots of hits despite seeing a lot of changes take root in the mainstream soundscape. I wager that the past year was a turning point and that 2013 will be a year of change, but for now let’s focus on 2012!

The Glee-kly Recap: 5 Episodes Until “Goodbye” and We’re a little “Choke”d Up!

Hola Gleeks!

Another week is upon us and I come to the realization today that there are only 5 episodes left until the end of the season, including tonight’s all new episode “Choke”. The previews have let us know that this week we will meet Puck’s father so we may get a rare Puck-centric story. I’ve also peeked at the tracklisting and checked out one of the First Listen Friday recordings and someone will be doing one of my very favorite songs by the Church of Pop’s Lady of Broken Hearts: Kelly Clarkson. Needless to say, I am stoked.

In case you didn’t catch last week’s Whitney Houston tribute… (Here’s what you missed, on GLEE!)

Let’s get on with it, then?

Judgement Day (Special Edition): Pop Heaven’s Top 100 Songs of 2011 (Part 3 of 4)

Oh hey! So we meet again…

I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year’s Eve. I partied it up with friends, got a little too tipsy and got home at about 5:00am. There was great food and great fun, amazing music, an incident involving honey roasted peanuts and sparkling wine and a booby trapped Big Mac. A word to the wise: Even if you, too have watched and re-watched a classic SNL “Sully & Denise” skit, don’t ever do it unless you want your champagne to explode all over your crotch. All in all – a regular Saturday night! 😉

You, however, aren’t here to find out about my wild night ringing in 2012, are you!? No way! You’re here to find out who made The Pop Gods Top 50 songs of 2011!

In case you’re just joining us:

We left off with some of you drooling ever-s0-slightly over the sinewy torso of Mr. Adam Levine as he slinked around with his “Moves Like Jagger”. Let’s see what the top half of our year-end countdown has to offer…
