Tidbits about my Top 20 of 2012

Happy New Year!

Here are some interesting (or not-so-interesting) tidbits about my Top 20 songs of 2012.

See last year's Tidbits about 2011

While Sweden and the UK tied for the number of artists (5) in my countdown, Sweden leads as one group had two songs. The Swedish artists are: Annikafiore, Le Kid, Dream Beats, Mi Lajki, Happy Hoes and Eric Saade.

Six UK artists with one song each were on my chart: Bananarama, Gwenno, The Face, The Saturdays, Girls Aloud and Pet Shop Boys.

Denmark had three artists: Whigfield, Infernal and Alphabeat.

And Norway gets an entry with Tone Damli.

The US had one artist with the amazing Madonna. But she also had three songs in my countdown, the most of any artist this year.

Kylie Minogue is the only artist from Australia. But I believe her home base is in London. However, we'll count her as an Aussie.

First-timer Carly Rae Jespen is the only Canadian on my countdown, too. 

The majority of artists were female. Including all of the Top 10 songs being sung by women! The last time that happened on my countdown was 1998.


Bananarama has hit my #1 spot 7 times! Hooray!

1986 #1 with "Venus"
1987 #1 with "I Heard A Rumour"
1991 #1 with "Preacher Man"
2009 #1 with "Love Comes"
2012 #1 with "Now Or Never"

If you missed the countdown, start here at #1. At the bottom of every entry, you can click to the next one. Enjoy!~

P.S. The UK group The Face has already broken up! Dang!
