Amy’s Top50 Songs of 2014
It’s that time of the year again~
If you missed my 2014 Music Highlights~
As always~ same rules apply. Songs released in 2014 are eligible (usually no new versions or covers), one song per artist… and I’m unsure I’ve done this before, but there’s a one song per album rule too. That made it really difficult because I’ve been listening to a lot of compilations and soundtracks this year. There may be exceptions, songs that were dropped as singles before (and I wasn’t aware of them), but had been released in an studio album this year.
This time around the order of my list turned out to be different than I expected it. Three songs battled it out to my Top-rated-Most-played, but only ONE made it… because I decided to make it cerebral with a Google Sheet mathematical rating. LOL I rated elements such as lyrics, rhythm, melody, instrumentalization and voice. I don’t know if this method worked, but it certainly made making the list a LOT easier than I remember it being.
Biases are always present, as well as new discoveries and old favorites.
This is a list heavy on YouTube/Xiami links. I will try to have (almost complete) playlists for your easy listening pleasure.
