A lot of great music was released this year. Some by new artists and some by old favorites of mine. To make my favorites list less crazy, I decided to stick to 2014 releases and narrow it down to ten. The list is in no particular order – well except for the one in no. 1 – so don’t shed any tears if your personal favorite is not higher on the list.
Top Ten Favorite Music of 2014. Let’s do this!
10. Chandelier – Sia
09. Take Me To Church – Hozier
08. West Coast – Lana del Rey
07. I Wanna Get Better – Bleachers
06. Out Of The Woods – Taylor Swift
05. New Bitch – Iggy Azalea
04. Sing – Ed Sheeran
03. Two Weeks – FKA Twigs
02. Yellow Flicker Beat – Lorde
01. Digital Witness – St. Vincent
After making this list, I realized how few new music I actually listened to this year. I can’t believe it and checked my player and they were full of podcast episodes and comedy albums. So that may be one reason why I struggled with this list. Also I can’t believe how this year just whooshed past. Some of the songs I loved were actually released in 2013 and not 2014. I was so close to just filling in this list with 1989 by Taylor Swift songs. So one resolution for next year is to discover more artists and be less of a music snob.
Let me know in the comments the songs you have loved, loving or loathed this year! How much do you agree with my list? What artist I should be listening to? Let me know!
