Eyewear's Top Songs of 2012: #7 'The Great Exhale' by Great Lake Swimmers

Another stylistic mode of the year in popular music was the turn to, or digging in of, an interest in the "Laurel Canyon" style of soft rock from the 70s, singer-songwriter folk.  Indeed, 2012 has been a fascinating melange of two decades once thought mutually exclusive, the 70s and 80s.  The best 70s soft rock song of this year, capturing the sense of melancholy and romance that decade epitomised at its best, has to be 'The Great Exhale'.  "When I get in I will see you are there" feels both lovely and deeply sad.
