I drive about 2 hours to and from work everyday. The drive is a drag, but it gives me the opportunity to listen to lots of music. I had the thought while driving home today, why not pick my 5 favorite songs from the daily commute, put them in a Spotify playlist, and share the mix with you? Enjoy.

Okay, okay, I know…I slacked hard this year. I used to average a couple posts a week and in 2012 I clocked one a quarter…embarrassing. Thanks to Todd and Sean for holding it down and thank you all for frequenting 3hive. I promise to make it up to you in the months to come. Meanwhile, please accept a Spotify playlist of my 30 favorite tracks of 2012 as a down payment, featuring Holograms, Japandroids, Hollows, The Black Tambourines, and Homeboy Sandman. Happy listening and Happy New Year!
