And the end of the year lists just keep coming! Today, Facebook unleashed its 2012 Year In Review report, and it seems that people were super into Fun. in 2012 — yup, that’s Fun, period.
At the end of 2011, The O Music Blog chatted with Fun. for its Music Meter Monday feature about the amazing year that the band had just wrapped up. At that time, lead singer Nate Ruess expressed one fervent wish, a desire that he said would be the perfect cap to 2011: “I just want to go to Olive Garden in Times Square on New Year’s. But I hear you have to book that, like, a year in advance.”
Here’s hoping he made those reservations, because the band definitely has cause to celebrate 2012. First, six Grammy nominations, and now this: The band was officially the most listened-to act on Facebook in 2012, with two songs making the list. With credentials like this, maybe the Olive Garden will boot a party or two to make room for Ruess and Co.
