Amy’s Top50 Songs of 2014

30. Jonsi & John Powell – Where No One Goes [1]

29. HA:TFELT – Ain’t Nobody

28. Twin Forks – Back to You

27. Javed Ali & Sunidhi Chauhan – Daawat-e-Ishq – Feast of Love [YouTube]

26. SunnyHill (써니힐) – Get the x Out [YouTube][Xiami]

Oh sweet ladies of SunnyHill and their sweet sounding messages with opposite lyrics.

25. Carrchy (卡奇社) – Careless Him (潦草的他)

Carrchy has got to be my favorite music discovery of the year. They’ve only released this one song for the Seeking Light Compilation, but it got me to listen to their 2007 album Daylight Allure (日光倾城) [Xiami], which is as gorgeous as well. Here’s a YouTube sample of that album.


24. Macy Gray – Hands

I’m not entirely sure (about my past lists), but I felt this year’s list didn’t have any black musicians until I started looking for clips to prep this post. But anyway, Macy Gray is usually never missing when she releases proper studio albums. I think I’m one of the few that loved The Sellout, and I adore that Macy is still goofy, happy-go-lucky, double entendre, big hair and all~ :)

23. A-Mei Chang (張惠妹) – Do You Still Want to Love Me (這樣你還要愛我嗎) [1]

22. tUnE-yArDs – Water Fountain [YouTube][Xiami]

21. Block B – Jackpot [1]

    For Black Keys, I prefer “Weight of Love”.

    […] Last year, I fell in love with Carrchy’s (卡奇社) music. And honestly, their 2007 album Daylight Allure (日光倾城) is pretty good stuff [Xiami] [YouTube Sample], but they hadn’t been releasing ANYTHING for many MANY years. Last night, they surprised with the release of the single track Clouds (云, Yun), which you can get in Xiami (Sorry, those who Xiami is blocking). I don’t know anywhere else where you might listen to their music [Here’s some Douban demos]. […]
