Ashley’s Favorite Big, Dumb Pop Songs of 2012

9 Dec

It’s been TWO YEARS, guys.  What the hell?  I apologize.  And to make up for it, I’m resurrecting Ashley’s Favorite Big, Dumb Pop Songs.

Last year was not a good year for pop and I, and I failed to come up with even ten songs worthy of the honor.  I had contemplated making a list of just “Super Bass” and “We Found Love”, but that would have been silly.

Ashley’s Top 50 Albums of the 2000s: 50-41

Also, once upon a time this article was all nights with album covers, but until I can figure out how to make WordPress not a stupid piece of shit, you’ll have to deal without them.
