Top 20 Songs: Week of Dec. 17-30, 2012


While people and publications (like PopCrush!) compile their year-end lists of the best songs of 2012, the DJs are talking about this song’s most popular songs on the radio. As 2012 comes to a close, PopCrush’s weekend radio show will pay tribute to 2012’s most spun songs, aka the 20 tracks that received the most airplay throughout the year.

The tracks with the highest amount of radio spins in 2012 range from indie-pop acts like Gotye and fun. to pop princesses like Rihanna, Carly Rae Jepsen and Kelly Clarkson. Check out which songs you can expect to hear on our upcoming year-end broadcast this weekend, in addition to our winning About to Pop song (Kesha‘s ‘C’Mon). And if you miss it this weekend (22-23), the countdown will also re-air the following weekend!
