In this, the first instalment of Dots & Dashes’ Tracks of 2012, we initiate the rundown from forty through one, vicariously reliving the glory days of TOTP, rampaged Woolworths racks of any given Monday morn, and so forth. Novelty Christmas number ones and such. Though as we approach the season to be jolly – blah blah blah blah blah, blah blah blah blah – here begins our catalogue of tracks to have made the year that was, and most certainly still is 2012, commensurately merry. Comprising odes to toddlers, strippers and charlatans alike, numbers 31 through 40 take in the following…
