Best of 2012?

Well, the most clicked on here at the MJ, anyway. Some very nice tunes too; thanks for listening. “Release Me” and “Hame Pila” battled it out for first for several weeks due to a lot of interest from the The Steel Guitar Forum. I imagine that “The Twist” and “Orange Blossom Special” got as many visits for the artwork as for the music which is also a good thing. Anyway, here’s our Top 10 for the year and a half we’ve been around. Click on the song title to link to the original post. What will 2013 bring? Stay tuned, and happy new year, you-all.
