Best of 2012 Countdown: Top 40 Songs - Part 1: 40-31

As we all start making our decisions for the tracks that will make up our votes for the Hottest 100, we had our contributors tell us their favourite tracks of 2012. Each contributor gave us their top 10 and the resulting 40 tracks are the highest rated from those lists! As usual, it's a fairly eclectic list - read on and enjoy! For the most part we'll be letting the music speak for itself...

40. Grimes - Genesis

39. Fiona Apple - Every Single Night

38. First Aid Kit - The Lion's Roar

37. Metric - Synthetica

36. Lisa Mitchell - Spiritus

35. Two Door Cinema Club - Sun

34. The Presets - Youth In Trouble

33. Emma Louise - Boy

32. Gary Clark Jr - Bright Lights

31. DZ Deathrays - Dollar Chills

Stay tuned for the rest of the countdown!
