VOTE NOW! Decide the Year’s Greatest Song in Our 2012 Tournament!

Best Song 2012 Round 5

Have you seen our list of the top 100 songs of the year? We picked a No. 1, of course. But we want to know what you think, so we gave you these 32 songs in four brackets—Pop, Rock/Country, Dance and R&B/Hip-Hop—to choose from.


Our No. 1, Carly Rae Jepsen‘s “Call Me Maybe,” has been upset in the first round by Cher Lloyd‘s “Want U Back,” which has now made it all the way to the finals, triumphing over fun. and Janelle Monae’s “We Are Young.” There, it faces G-Dragon’s “Crayon,” which absolutely obliterated Meek Mill and Drake’s “Amen” in its final four matchup. Vote for your favorite song, and as always, vote as many times as you want!

Completed Rounds

Round Five (12/20 - 12/22)

Cher Lloyd

What: Want U Back

Who: Cher Lloyd

Why: Cher Lloyd's unapologetically narcissistic post-breakup lament made for one of the year's catchiest, most quotable and most relentlessly imitable pop singles.


What: Crayon

Who: G-Dragon

Why: "Crayon" was one of the year's goofiest, least-predictable and most stupidly thrilling pop songs. We're guessing that knowing what the lyrics meant wouldn't help make it much more intelligible—hoping, really.
