Oasis - top of the list for Anthem of the year - and next year and maybe the year after that.

I don't usually post songs that are as popular as this one, opting instead for the obscure, underrated, brand new or deep-distant. Don't Look Back In Anger has turned out to be something of an anthem for the year. And maybe an anthem for 2012 and after. Maybe someday it will eclipse "Auld Lang Syne" as the penultimate assessment of the previous 365 days.

It certainly lays out all those feelings and observations. But I suspect you all know that.

In any event - classic and timely Oasis. Classic and timely sentiment.

Brace yourself for 2012.
