As always, the criteria we use to compose this annual list is based on a combination of factors: gut instinct, personal taste, overheard men’s room small talk, music journalism, data mining, peer pressure, gay sex appeal, political incorrectness, wet dreaming and, of course, penis size.
It’s kind of a tricky list to come up for a couple of reasons. Firstly, mainstream pop music is apparently so effin’ gay that, as music critic Alex Ross noted in his epic New Yorker essay on gay rights victories and pop culture, “At certain moments, straight people can seem gayer than the gays.” (Or maybe, at certain moments, gay people seem straighter than the straights?)
Secondly, there were more than enough indie songs with homo appeal released in 2012 from which to compile this list. Sadly we had to leave a few choice numbers on the cutting room floor but as we say in gay blogging, sometimes you have to kill your gaybies.
