There are just twenty days left in 2012, so here are the 20 singles of the year from my point of view, running down to the number one on New Years Eve.
At number 20 I have gone for Caliban’s Dream, from Underworld’s incredible music for the Olympic Ceremony, the music used for the lighting of the Olympic Flame. Featuring Alex Trimble from Two Door Cinema Club, it stays just the right side of cheesy, no small feat given it features a children’s choir la-la-ing away. It floats along blissfully and capped a perfect opening ceremony. Indeed they really should have finished the evening there….
I could write for quite a while eulogising Underworld, but check out 2010’s Barking album as a great start point.
