Top 35 Songs of 2015

It’s that time of year again for my year in review of music. It was a good year and it was tough getting down to 35 songs, but we got there. I have a few restrictions this year in order to make it easier so if you don’t see a song you think should’ve been on the list, there’s probably a reason for it. I have excluded:

  • New versions of songs that were originally released in previous years e.g. Sia’s “Elastic Heart” which appeared on my 2013 list. 
  • Remixes of songs that were originally released in previous years e.g. Major Lazer’s “All My Love” which appeared on my 2014 list.
  • Singles released in previous years but appear on 2015 albums e.g. Say Lou Lou’s “Everything We Touch” which appeared on my 2014 list.

Anyway, on we go! Continue reading
