2 Payphone - Maroon 5

I am at a payphone... Trying to call home... All of my change I spent on you... Great lyrics and melody... Maroon 5 at it's best... A real song from a broken heart... Should be on 1...

The best on the list but in my opinion the best of the year is 'one more night' by maroon 5

Ok... I'm a great LP fan n m so happy to see so many of their songs in the top ten, but I have to admit that Adam Levine is just great.

2012 was a great year for music. 2012 is probably the best year of the decade for music. - madoog

3 Some Nights - Fun.

This song is great! It has great harmony and lyrics, but the auto tuned thing at the end of the part c was quite strange and might have done better without it... Other than that, it was just about perfect!

Good hit in us charts hits

Epic song. Way better than We Are Young.

A love letter to Queen fans

4 We Are Young - Fun.

The band Fun is really great and I wish that We Are Young was ahead of the others. This song is so catchy and a really great song to dance to. Everyone should try to listen to it because it has meaningful lyrics and, it is in the band's name, FUN!

How? It has lyrics about beating a girl, the tempo changes, which is really annoying, and.... This guys voice makes me want to jump off a bridge. Its like Bieber's brother or something. 2012 was one of if not the worst year for music. It had some good songs, but this one winning best song of the year?! That is crap. This song is crap. I hate everything about it. - ckets4769

Just going to say that everyone saying the song is meaningful, obviously hasn't listened to the lyrics that closely. The guy beats his girlfriend. "My seats been taken by some sunglasses, asking bout a scar and... I know I have it to you months ago" Enough said.

I do not like this song, at all. This song is overrated. - madoog

5 We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together - Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift looks so beautiful. She sings awesome. I love her. Just remembering the words "We are never ever getting back together". Can't get this song out of my head. I love you Taylor Swift

WANEGBT is an understatement to her talent, and doesn't really represent Red for what it is.. but she's still absolutely amazing. It's really quite a sassy song and one that many people can relate to whether they admit it or not.

I do not hate this song, but I do not care for it. - madoog

Super amazing song. I'm a Swiftie forever. She is super fantastic! When I first heard it I loved it. I didn't realize it was her. This shows I'm unbiased. Go Taylor

6 Blown Away - Carrie Underwood
7 Lights - Ellie Goulding

This song actually has a deep meaning. Unfortunately, many people are too shallow to see this.

Good song should be in the top 10

Lights is a 2011 song!

I love her. love me like you do is my favorite song. great singer

8 Castle of Glass - Linkin Park

Awesome chilled song from Linkin Park. When they came to South Africa to promote Living Things I was disappointed they didn't play it but they did play other songs from their other albums that I love (Given Up) so it didn't bother me too much. This song deserves a spot in the top ten - Danielsun182

Way better song than burn it down, should be top ten at least. BEST SONG FROM LIVING THINGS!

Deserves the top 5 position. It has an awesome music video which can touch anyone's heart. I would request people to vote for this song. Linkin Park is back!

'Cause I'm only a crack in this castle of glass
Hardly anything there for you to see
For you to see

9 Call Me Maybe - Carly Rae Jepsen

This song is so good that I cannot stop hearing it again and again... Its march 2013 and I am still listening

I love Carly Rae Jepsen, she is beautiful, she has an amazing voice and Call Me Maybe is so so so great! But, if I made this list it would be, What Makes You Beautiful first, As Long As You Love Me then Call Me Maybe.

I heard some guy say this was the best pop song heard in 10 years. I absolutely agree

This is catchy like crazy

10 Lost In the Echo - Linkin Park

Belongs in the top of the list :D LP'S OLD STYLE IS BACK :D

This is the great song in 2012

A good quality Linkin Park song. Vocals and rhythm are good. But not enough to match burn it down.

IT DESERVE THE NO 2 SPOT. AFTER BURN IT DOWN IT IS THE BEST SONG OF 2012. EVERY SINGLE SONG OF LIVING THINGS IS HIT AND GREAT

Imagine Dragon's first song! - Aiyman

It is good, heartwarming, and atmospheric. - madoog

12 Wide Awake - Katy Perry

This song is great. It describes how Katy was in her 'Teenage Dream' with Russell Brand until they divorce which at the time, she's wide awake and realize that this is dream and Russell Brand is not what she dreaming in her 'Teenage Dream'. Such a great song from Katy Perry. - BeaM456

For me this song shine the most than other song... Why? Because we humankind inspired if you listen to this song.. First and foremost in this song see that katy the killer queen end her illuminati practices that is only my OPINION.. !

14 Better Than I Know Myself - Adam Lambert
15 Somebody that I Used to Know - Gotye

This song never gets old, no matter how many times I listen to it, it still sounds awesome, than, it gets stuck in my head, and I still don't mind!

This song is by far the best song so far this year. It has this ring to it that just gets stuck in your head. And that is what makes a song popular.

This song will be timeless.. Always makes me sing... Awesome! Keeps playing in my head... And I love it!

Best song I've ever heardā¤

The way this song sounds --- I do not like Diamonds. - madoog
