With only a couple of weeks left until the new year, Apple has released the one hundred top albums, songs, music videos of 2012.
Amongst the top music of 2012 we see the likes of Bruno Mars, Taylor Swift, Rhianna, Justin Beiber, Gotye, Pink, Ellie Goulding, Adele, Emeli Sande, Mumford & Sons, Lianne La Havas and obviously the politically outspoken Psy. A welcome return on this is that there are many home-grown British artists within these charts.
iTunes has listed James Arther's 'Impossible' track as the UK number one of the year shortly followed by Bruno Mars' 'Locked Out of Heaven' and at number three sits 'The Power of Love' track by Gabrielle Aplin - made famous by its appearance on the lengthy John Lewis christmas advert featuring a couple of 'loved up' snowmen. This advert has only been broadcast for three weeks yet it makes it to number three spot in such a short space of time. For America the number one is given to Bruno Mars' 'Locked Out of Heaven' followed by Taylor Swift's 'I knew You Were Trouble' with The Lumineers 'Ho Hey' track in bronze position.
In addition, the highlight of 2012, the London Olympic Games, paved way to a British only performance featuring the groundbreaking groups 'Underworld' and 'Elbow' which made its way in to becoming the 'iTunes performance of the year'. Across the pond, we see that the American citizens are helping bring relief to the horrors that Hurricane Sandy brought with the '12-12-12 The Concert For Sandy Relief' twenty-four track live album sitting comfortably in the number one spot for 'album of the year'. Both deserving artefacts of their status and below we can see the top ten albums of 2012.
