June 2012

The second entry for the 2012 Brit Awards winner for best male.  Caps off a brilliant year for him and he also wrote a chart topper in the form of One Direction’s “Little Things”.

ROBBIE WILLIAMS – CANDY

November 2012

Weeks on chart:  8+

Peak position:  1

Finally, Robbie realised that experimenting with shite like “Rudebox” wasn’t the thing for him, and he returned with a proper good old fashioned pop hit. Written with Gary Barlow, it ended up being his first chart topper for eight years!

EMELI SANDÉ – CLOWN

September 2012

Weeks on chart:  3+

Peak position:  35

“Next To Me” was her top selling single & “Read All About It III” got all the plaudits at the Olympics, but I believe this, her lowest charting entry of 2012, is her finest solo record to date.  It sounds like the kind of song Beyoncé would give her right arm to be able to have written for her.

ED SHEERAN – GIVE ME LOVE

October 2012

Weeks on chart:  8+

Peak position:  18

Mr Sheeran really does know how to string out an album, this being the sixth track to be released as a single!  Fortunately for him, it’s a belter of an album and both eligible tracks of 2012 make it onto this list.

OWL CITY & CARLY RAE JEPSEN – GOOD TIME

September 2012

Weeks on chart:  16

Peak position:  5

What a fantastic year for 27 year-old (YES, TWENTY-SEVEN!) Canadian Carly Rae Jepsen.  Her debut hit “Call Me Maybe” (Which will appear later in this chart) hit number one worldwide and she and her collaborator, Owl City (“Fireflies” 2009), both ensued there would be no “One hit wonder” tags bestowed upon them with this aptly named power pop tune.

ELLIE GOULDING – ANYTHING COULD HAPPEN

October 2012

Weeks on chart:  12

Peak position:  5

Although there is something quite annoying about Goulding that I can’t quite put my finger on, she does know how to create a catchy tune. This follows in the “Starry-Eyed” vein.

KATY PERRY – WIDE AWAKE

April 2012

Weeks on chart:  20

Peak position:  9

Katy Perry’s 2012 comeback single, “Part Of Me” hit number 1 in both America & the UK, but it was this follow up which had much more about it.  Great, atmospheric production.

RIHANNA – DIAMONDS

October 2012

Weeks on chart:  12+

Peak position:  1

The hardest working woman in showbiz racked up no less than EIGHT chart hits in 2012! All this plus the fact that at only 24 years of age, she is now only second to Madonna on the all time best sellers list……Consistent as ever, “Diamonds” may not be her greatest song, but it is definitely one of her finest vocal performances.  Sexy perormance on X-Factor as well 😉

FUN FT JANELLE MONÁE – WE ARE YOUNG

April 2012

Weeks on chart:  37+

Peak position:  1

Dunno whether I’ve mentioned this or not ;), but I do believe I could have been the first person to play this track on Irish radio!  Huge hit in America & it seemed like an eternity before it finally charted in the UK.  Even when it did, it took a while to get to number 1 and its still in the top 100 now!  Brilliant cameo from the wonderful Jannelle Monáe also.

GARY BARLOW & THE COMMONWEALTH BAND FT THE MILITARY WIVES – SING

June 2012

Weeks on chart:  12

Peak position:  1

Ok, so it is a bit wet, and has a few uncomfortable similarities with the “Lion King”    soundtrack……BUT…..It’s another well written piece from Barlow & has an uplifting chorus.         Plus, its the first song to ever steal the brilliant backing vocal from Labi Siffre’s “Something Inside (So Strong)”
