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.
