I decided I would close out the first week of the new year with a new installment I call Freestyle Fridays, where I will either give you music, art, or something ran-damn-ly delicious that I discovered that week.

Music is often how I show my affection. Sharing songs for me is the equivalent of love letters and hugs. Since, I love all of you - I figured I would give you a list of my favorite music downloads of 2012. Not all music included here is from 2012, but that is when I downloaded it. Each link below will take you to the song.
I tried to stay away from the Top 40 hits and so forth so that you might have a chance at finding some new music. Many of these songs were not originally released in the US. So, without further ado - I give you some tuneage.
MY FAVORITE SINGLE DOWNLOAD OF THE YEAR -
I DON'T WANT A PIECE OF YOU - I WANT THE WHOLE THING!
