By Megan Woo     Dec 16, 2012 in Entertainment
2012 was an amazing year in pop music. There were songs from great artists, as well as songs that went viral and made relative unknowns famous.
Here is a list of the top 5 pop songs of 2012:
2012 was the year of "Call Me Maybe." Millions of people around the world were singing "Hey, I just met you. This is crazy. Here's my number, so call me maybe." Even big names, like the US swim team, just couldn't stop singing those lyrics. Thanks Justin Bieber.
1. "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen
This list would not be complete without "Gangnam Style." There have been many videos on YouTube of users doing the dance, doing cover songs, and even doing Christmas light shows. With a catchy beat and nearly 1 billion views on YouTube, what's not to love about this song?
2. "Gangnam Style" by PSY
This catchy song by One Direction makes me want to get up and dance. I grew up listening to boy bands, so listening to this song brings me back to my childhood.
3. "Live While We're Young" by One Direction
"Stronger" sounds like a rock anthem. It is one of those songs that could make you feel good about yourself. Kelly Clarkson has such an empowering voice, which is clearly evident in this song.
4. "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)" by Kelly Clarkson
This is why P!nk is a rockstar and why her career has spanned over a couple of decades. P!nk has that sass and poppyness mixed with some hardcore rock in her voice that she can make any song sound like a rock anthem.
5. "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)" by P!nk
