One nice way to sum up 2012 is by looking back at all my favourite songs of the year. At work I like to you YouTube to listen to music by creating playlists which makes it really easy for me to see what I've been listening to.
Below I've created a playlist of all my most listened to tracks of 2012. I don't really have a particularly cool or high brow taste in music but it's what I like.
There's a bit of Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, One Direction, Justin Bieber, Paloma Faith, The XX, Jessie Ware and Girls Aloud.
