Favorite UK songs from 2012

Bonus post!  We thought it would be fun to document our favorite UK radio songs thus far.    Kerry and I listen to quite a bit of radio on our road trips and drives to the gym, usually BBC Radio 1, which is usually just popular songs repeated over and over.  I believe most of these were released in 2012, but there might be a few older songs that gained popularity later this year.  I have no idea how our picks are doing in popularity stateside.  Many of the artists are from the UK, but there are a few Americans thrown in the mix too, I think.

Quite a bit of dance/house music, which is huge out here and has been growing on us.  House music was usually on the playlist at CrossFit Indy North before we moved anyway, so we were primed and ready for it when we got here.  I do have a few indie rock songs in the list, which is what I would tend to listen to if I had my own playlist.

So what do you think?  Post to comments!  What are we missing back in the US?  Are any of these songs equally popular?  And to my UK friends - do we have good taste?


Calvin Harris featuring Example - We'll Be Coming Back

Mumford and Sons - Lover of the Light

Swedish House Mafia - Don't You Worry Child
Porter Robinson - Language

Ellie Goulding - Figure 8

Calvin Harris featuring Florence Welch - Sweet Nothing

Alt-J - Matilda

David Guetta featuring Sia - She Wolf

Plan B - Ill Manors

The Lumineers - Ho Hey

Willy Moon - Yeah Yeah

Then two songs that we can't agree on
Kerry's pick:  Disclosure - Latch

Jeff's pick: Rudimental featuring John Newman and Alex Clare - Not Giving In

Bonus list -  Guilty pleasure songs we would never admit to actually liking, but will forever remind us of our time here in the UK.

Sam and the Womp - Bom Bom

Dizzee Rascals - Bonkers

Robbie Williams - Candy
