THE TOP 50 TUNES OF 2012: 50-11 //

Crack loves a good album. But sometimes when Friday afternoon hits and the intern has gone over the road to buy loads of beer, we aren’t interested in consuming a whole album with a critical ear. We want the quick fix. A sonic booty call if you will.

And like any good booty call you go back again and again. Which is exactly what we did with these 50 delightful slices of musical nookie. Here is numbers 50-11.
