BEST OF 2012 (PART 1)

Of the 345 songs that appeared on the 16 "regular" P of A mixes of 2012, here follow the 39 that most successfully insinuated themselves into my oft-soporific, oft-sentimental, oft-sodden subconscious.  That they appeared here once means that I liked them; that they appear here twice means that I've officially gone all Sally-Field-ass-over-Oscar-speech for them.  In other words, over the course of one short year, these once-bashful tracks have grown from giddy Gidgets to noble Norma Raes, and I'm proud as punch to present them to you in all their newly-uncocooned beauty.

Oh, and... just to be clear... neither the songs nor the mixes are listed in order of preference, merely arranged in what I hope will make for a smooth-yet-varied listening experience.  Also, not all tracks are, technically, from the year 2012.  My mixes would sooner contain a Miley Cyrus song than be confined by calendars.
