Around this time, it starts to get really hard to place songs. I like all of these tunes — a lot. My Top 100 Songs of 2014 (80-61):
80. Vance Joy – Riptide/Mess Is Mine
79. Dum Dum Girls – Too True To Be Good
Favourite track from their really sexy last album.
78. Schoolboy Q – Man Of The Year
77. La Roux – Kiss And Not Tell/Sexotheque
These songs deserve waaaaaay more views.
Bonus: Omar Souleyman – Wenu Wenu (from 2013)
76. Lykke Li – No Rest For The Wicked
75. Foster The People – Best Friend
Best song on their latest LP.
74. Aphex Twin – Minipops 67 (120.2) (Source Field Mix)
Welcome back Richard. You were missed.
73. Marina and The Diamonds – Froot
72. ILOVEMAKKONEN f. Drake – Tuesday
So random. So fresh. So 2014.
71. Charli XCX – Boom Clap
Bonus: Kongos – I’m Only Joking (From 2011)
70. Bombay Bicycle Club – Luna/Home By Now
Two really, really good songs. Two good videos, especially the one for “Luna”.
69. Ex Cops – Black Soap
Heard this one late in 2014, but it grabbed me right away.
68. Interpol – All The Rage Back Home
El Pintor raging here, home, and anywhere else is always comforting.
67. One Direction – Story Of My Life
66. Hedley – Crazy For You
Methinks it’s the best song these canucks have ever done.
65. Ask Embla – Legion
64. A.G. Cook – Beautiful
Reminiscent of Happy Hardcore, yet still on the cutting edge of pop. Banger.
63. Sam Smith – Stay With Me/Stay With Me (Rainer & Grimm Remix)
I’d previously mentioned the Rainer & Grimm Remix of this tune in my Top Remixes of 2014 list, but I had to link it again. Both it and the original are fantastic, though I do prefer the remix.
62. Paloma Faith – Only Love Can Hurt Like This
Big, brassy, bombastic pop.
61. Ed Sheeran – Sing/One
It took me a while to get into “Sing”, but when I did, I was hooked. “One” is simply gorgeous.
