2012 in Music

Several years ago I started to drop songs into a folder in iTunes, songs that stood out to me for various reasons throughout the year. Some were brand new songs I had never heard of before. Others were ones that for various reasons I found myself returning to. I didn't grow up really listening to music, except in church, but somewhere in seminary music started to really matter to me, perhaps because it became another way for me to pray. I hope you enjoy my 2012 in music lineup. Drop me a post and let me know if you liked any of this, or even make a few suggestions of your own!
