Is This It? Eight Songs to Listen to While Waiting for Coachella's 2012 Lineup Announcement

Coachella's full lineup should be announced sometime this week. Last Friday, the festival tweeted a picture that read "Next Week" with the hashtag #Coachella2012. There's already been some speculation with fake fliers and what not, but the official lineup will be announced any day now. LA Times predicts January 22 or 23, but for all we know, the lineup could be announced today. So far, Araabmuzik, Azealia Banks, Housse de Racket, and Jimmy Cliff have all been confirmed.

But we want to know the whole thing. So we've turned to artists that played the festival in 2011 for a few key lyrics to describe our longing to know who we'll be spending the weekend(s) with in 2012.
