Top 10 Songs of 2014 – My Humble Opinions

10. Magic – Coldplay

This mellow love song is the best thing that came from Coldplay’s Chris Martin’s split from Gwenyth Paltrow on the otherwise average Ghost Stories

9. Happy – Pharrell Williams

Love it or hate it, this feel good tune was inescapable in 2014, and for good reason. Cheery, catchy and oh so loveable, we’re all better for it

8. Fancy – Iggy Azalea

The hit from down under of the year, this was one of the biggest revelations in hip-hop and also one of the biggest radio hits

7. Turn Down For What – DJ Snake and Lil Jon

The essential party track of the year, you wouldn’t go anywhere without hearing this high octane, and surprisingly punk-ethos inspired crunk jumper

6. Stay With Me – Sam Smith

As emotional and melancholy as you could get it 2014, this gorgeous ear worm made people smile, cry and fall in love with Sam Smith

5. Swans – Screen Shot

You’ve probably never heard of it, but this progressive rocker is one of the most musically incredible tracks of the year, with impressive bass, and some scintillating guitar

4. Back to the Shack – Weezer

Back to the Shack is back to how Weezer should be, sarcastic, riffing and with some brilliant vocals from Cuomo. When they’re like this, Weezer should be loved

3. Beck – Blue Moon

The master of indie-folk, Beck came back from out of the blue with his album Morning Phase, and this emotional, wistful masterpiece is at the forefront of it all, and is his best effort for years

2. Drunk in Love – Beyonce ft Jay-Z

Isn’t love a beautiful thing? Queen Bey this hip-hop inspired R&B track put to bed any rumours of her and Jay-Z having problems, and the catchy hook and serene vocals make this a different, musically fantastic and almost 2014 topping track

1. Kendrick Lamar – i

This has been a great year for new hip-hop, and the king of it all is Kendrick Lamar. i is a masterful blend of funky smooth bass, a fantastic uplifting message and all the makings of a hugely quality song. No doubt for me, this is the best song of 2014
