26 Thrift Shop - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Thrift Shop - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

Took a struggling indie rapper to platinum and opened people's eyes to the rest of his music (which is also good), but bottom line you go find me a song that's easier to get stuck in your head.

Oops, should of voted for this, but whatever - VideoGamefan5

Seriously? How has this not been added yet? This was literally the 3rd best song of 2012 (according to the charts) and it's amazing! Great music, lyrics, it's amazing!

Should be in the top 5 - venomouskillingmachine

27 Just in Case - Conor Maynard Just in Case - Conor Maynard
28 Radioactive - Imagine Dragons Radioactive - Imagine Dragons

"Radioactive" is a song that creates a feeling of a change- an immense, almost incomprehensible transformation- coming about and does it without overdoing it. Graced with a generously killer beat and a fittingly heavy bass line, the only that could improve on this song is somehow managing to fit in some acoustic guitar. And what does this single do? Exactly that. The single is made even better within the context of Imagine Dragon's now two year old record, "Night Visions". All in all, "Radioactive" is the best 2012 has to offer and should surely make it to the top of this list.

OH MY GOD THIS SONG SHOULD SHOULD DEFINITELY BE NUMBER 1! It is actually so amazing it gives me the goosebumps what is wrong with the voters, 69th place!?

This song isn't on my list for only one reason; unlike It's Time which was released in 2012 and a hit in the same year, and Demons which was released late enough to be considered a 2013 hit, Radioactive was unfortunately stuck in an awkward middle that also happened to Shut Up and Dance by WALK THE MOON. - WonkeyDude98

I'm really confused as to why Starships and We are Never Ever Getting Back Together are higher than this song.

31 Powerless - Linkin Park

The best song of 2012, a combination of all their softer hits, and it rocks

The perfect way to end their album "LIVING THINGS" because it is a truly emotional and spectacular track, also waiting for 'Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter'

A COMBINATION OF ALL THEIR BEST SOFT SONGS FROM THEIR BEST ALBUM YET! This is the song of 2012, then lost in the echo and burn it down... Yep that's rite, I'm a huge lp fan and it'll be that way for a long time

Not going to lie... THIS SONG BEATS 'BURN IT DOWN' BIG TIME :D their best ballad by far and gonna be a mega chart topper :) good on ya LP another great hit, can't w8 for the movie

I was SO happy to hear this at the end of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

32 Madness - Muse Madness - Muse

Record breaking 19th straight week on number 1 alternative chart

33 Gangnam Style - PSY Gangnam Style - PSY

1 billion views on youtube, beat that!

YouTube shouldn't matter. EVER! It's a catchy song, but it doesn't deserve the title of one of the best songs of 2012. - ckets4769

I like K-POP because you can't understand a single word!

This song is absolutely amazing. I do not mind that most of the song is in a different language. It is a really good song --- nothing bad about it. He sings like he means it. - madoog

It's awesome my favourite songs until stressed out - coolguy101

34 Made of Stone - Evanescence Made of Stone - Evanescence

Underrated. Why doesn't this get any radio play? It's so much better than all that other "alternative" crap they play.

35 Gotta Try It - JLS
36 Euphoria - Loreen Euphoria - Loreen

I didn't mean to vote for this; accident - Aeterna

She is the best. It's all I can say

40 Diamonds - Rihanna Diamonds - Rihanna

That's a very good song by rihanna. You should definitely listen it.

I really, really like this song. I respect those who don't, but this is one of the BEST songs she has released, NOT the worst in my opinion

A good recent song by rihanna

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