2012 Year-End Online Music Lists

As "best of 2012" year-end music lists appear online I will aggregate them in this post as I have in past years, updating the list daily.

If you post or see an online 2012 music list on a blog, newspaper, magazine, or other media site that isn't listed, please feel free to e-mail me the link or leave a comment.

Read daily updates to this list.

Revisit the lists for 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009, 2000-2009 (best of the decade lists), 2010, and 2011.
