"Midnight Organ Fight" remains my favorite Frightened Rabbit album. They've really developed their sound to play well live in front of large crowds, but the intimate moments on earlier albums, like "Snake" or "Poke" reveal more details about Scott Hutchison's songwriting.

This almost sounds like a 21st-Century take on The Cranberries' mellow tunes.

Did it take anyone else 30 minutes to read this, because you stopped to listen to "This Is Water" by David Foster Wallace?

I could buy a monthly membership to a museum and go look a piece of art as many times as I want. Although, I certainly wouldn't damage art and claim a small piece of it as my own. As far as being a part of a grand experiment, I'm grateful that centuries of scientists contributed small bits of knowledge to technology we enjoy today. Nikola Tesla, for example, died alone, impoverished and in debt, but history remembers him with gratitude. Progress doesn't come without sacrifice.

I would flip your Pharrell and Iggy guesses. "Handy" is probably Pharrell, because it's the biggest crossover hit of the year, so it makes sense that he'd lead with it. And "Tacky" is an antonym of "Fancy," so it must be Iggy. I'll also throw out that "Inactive" might be a take on "Radioactive"?

I think both videos are borrowing dance moves from a wedding I attended in 2010.

I just returned to Neon Bible last week for the first time in a while and it was better than I remember. I'd like to see at least one more song from that record make the cut.

Maybe my Animal Collective fandom makes me biased, but I love "Doin' It Right (feat. Panda Bear)". I also enjoyed the tracks featuring Pharrell and Paul Williams (they're married, right?).

Bright Eyes was my gateway artist in high school. Ten years later, I can still tell you that my friend handed me a mix CD with the following songs: Lover I Don't Have To Love, Perfect Sonnet, Waste of Paint, Calendar Hung Itself, Bowl of Oranges, and Sunrise, Sunset.

I played it before it was removed and YouTube is letting me replay it. So, if you want to hear it, come on over.

I would like an extra camera permanently fixed on the audience during performances such as this. Then place that frame in the lower right-hand corner of the screen.

This is the route I prefer to go when constructing a year-end list; favorite vs. best. I don't have the scientific method or background to magically deduce who created the best music, so I'll just list what I enjoyed the most in 2012.

They must have played "Father Time" at P4K last summer, because it sounds familiar.

The remixes really focus on Gotye's voice and lyrics.

I enjoyed this walk down memory lane. I'm only two years older than you, although, I didn't run across this album until two years after its release. It changed everything about how I listen to music; understanding writing, who I listened to - not to mention how I started to see the world around me.

Sounds hauntingly like E.L.O. - "Don't Bring Me Down".
