2012 Wrap: Top 5 Surprise Hits of the Year

There were a number of songs that graced the airways this year, but there were a few that I would have never thought would have caught on like they did. Here are my top 5:

Gangnam Style - Psy
If I told you at the beginning of the year that one of the biggest viral song of 2012 would be entirely sung in Korean minus two words "sexy lady" I would have laughed in your face. This goes to show...if you have a dance to go along with your song that even the most uncoordinated white person can do - your song will be gold. (RE: Macarena).

Call Me Maybe - Carly Rae Jepsen
Carly Rae was a hidden Canadian gem until Bieber came home, found out that she had one catchy ass song and then started proselytising her all over the universe. I know the song is good, but I am sure after Jepsen finished recording it she wasn't like, "Now that's an international hit, biatch!"

I Knew You Were Trouble. - Taylor Swift
Am I surprised when Taylor Swift has a hit? No. Am I surprised when Taylor Swift makes a song that includes Dub-Step? Yes. Am I surprised when this song doesn't suck? Most definitely. I think the world is still stuck on We Are Never Ever Ever Getting Back Together (and other extremely long titled songs - WTF)...but this song is going to pick up.

Red Solo Cup - Toby Keith
In country music circles this song is the shiiiiiiiiiiit. I like country music, but this? Complete garbage. How did something this awful become such an anthem for frat house like parties. It's a disgrace to the red cup (SOLO and otherwise).

Whistle - Flo Rida
Flo Rida has had a lot of hits...but I cheap ass song that is about getting blown? I am surprised that people like this enough to get it to number one. I am surprised people didn't listen to it as a one off, laugh and move along. Wait, why am I surprised by this?! Jersey Shore had 6 SEASONS.
