The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2012: #34 - Calvin Harris

When it comes to year-end lists, y'all know I don't mess around. I don't post my picks from the previous year for weeks after the next year has started. In 2012, there was a bounty of music that entered the world that made me deliriously happy to be blessed with the sense of sound. So I pondered, marinated, and contemplated for weeks. Music from 2012 has been digested for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And now, friends, it's time. Time to share with you what I consider the cream of quite a crop indeed. You might see things omitted here that you think should be on a Best Of list. This list isn't what I think you want to read. This list is what I feel about last year. If it's not here, I either didn't spend enough time with it or just didn't love it enough. A big thank you to all of the artists who created the music that I fell in love with last year.

WHO: Calvin Harris

WHAT: 18 Months

WHEN: October 2012


WHY: Y'all know I tend to steer clear of stuff that's super "clubby" or stuff that might be popular amongst the masses. However, when it comes to Calvin Harris, I've been powerless to resist the cheeky chappy since I first was introduced years back. His beaty bravado and sonic swagger haven't changed, only now he's reeled in big names like Rihanna and Florence Welch to help spread his message of good times and dancefloor cheer. While I definitely miss some of the camp that hallmarked earlier Harris jams, 18 Months has a certain appeal. What can I say, y'all? I'm a sucker for Scots. 

MY JAMS: "Mansion" "Sweet Nothing" "Thinking About You"
