Soundtrack 2012: The Year of "Just This"

An annual end of year tradition for me is to create a playlist, or soundtrack if you will, describing my life over the course of the past year using songs I discovered within that time frame.

Here is the Soundtrack to 2012 . . . click here for the playlist on Spotify or YouTube
(Because I spent so much this year running, drinking good beer, and going to concerts, there's a few more categories than there have been in the past!)
