The WINNER Of The #1 Defining Song Of 2012 Award Is... One Direction!
"Baby you light up my world like nobody else / The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed / But when you smile at the ground it ain't hard to tell / You don't know Oh oh / You don't know you're beautiful"
Yes, that's right, One Direction! We thought for sure it would be one of the two songs that sat at #1 of our Top 100 for most of the year, Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" or Gotye's "Somebody That I Used To Know" but no, the Directioners prevailed and won their favorite boy band the title of #1 Defining Song of 2012! We do know this: "What Makes You Beautiful" was on heavy rotation everywhere we went this year, and it represents the triumphant return of the boy band so in that sense, sure, it defined 2012!
