MGMT is finally releasing a follow up to 2010's superb "Congratulations." The new eponymous album is set for release on September 17 and is available for pre-order on iTunes, where it is referred to as the "optimizer deluxe edition." The pre-order comes with an instant download of the song "Your Life Is a Lie," which can also be heard/seen below.
Since we don't have much of the album to play, I can relay to you how caught off guard I was when first seeing the album cover. When I went to school in Western New York (Fredonia, to be exact) I lived in the neighboring city. The album cover was taken across the street from what was my bank when I lived there. I remember riding past "Stylez Unlimited" on my bike all the time. …

31 Dec 2012, 17:50 by RadioKaKaAs far as I know, Last.fm's Year-End charts have never ever listed the Top Tracks of each year, so I tried to compile the calendar-year recaps according to the weekly Top Tracks worldwide chart.
The Year-End charts utilize an inverse point system with tracks collecting points mainly based on rank for each week they were on the chart, plus more or less adjustments according to the listeners of that week, if necessary. In a word, when a track hits No. 1, it earns the greatest point, while earns the least with weeks at No. 25. Listeners registered without entering the weekly top 25 aren't considered in these standings.

Rank - Peak (Weeks) - Weeks in the top 10 - Artist – Track (Description)
01. 1 (29) 46 Gotye – Somebody That I Used to Know
02. 3 (3) 40 M83 – Midnight City
03. 2 (20) 26 Carly Rae Jepsen – Call Me Maybe
04. 1 (1) 41 Lana Del Rey – Video Games
05. 2 (3) 35 Foster The People – Pumped Up Kicks

For the same track with “different” titles (for example, explicit or clean versions, or any others) charting seperately on the Top Tracks chart, which were often caused by online music stores or streaming services, such as iTunes Store, Spotify, etc. its listeners were combined together as much as possible. And certainly, this would lead to more or less changes of the weekly rankings, even altering the number-one sometimes.

1.1 Tracks with the most weeks at #1
1.2 Tracks with the most weeks at #2 (without hitting #1)
