Top 50 Songs of 2015 (Numbers 30-21)
And my countdown continues:
30. Selena Gomez - "Good for You"
There are almost too many good singles on Selena Gomez' new record. This is one of the standouts, a slow-burning track that brings Selena fully into adulthood.
29. Ameriie - "Out Loud"
It's been too long since we have heard from Ameriie, and it's like she never left. She is the queen of the jam.
28. GOVS - "6teenDRE'am"
This is one of those dreamy tracks that just pulls at you like those last halcyon days of summer.
27. BATTS - "Morals"
Atmospheric track from Aussie duo Batts.
26. Florence + The Machine - "Ship to Wreck"
I go back and forth with Florence, finding some of her music a tad overwrought, however, on occasion she knows how to hit my sweet spots just right. "Ship to Wreck" is one of those perfect moments.
25. Ciara ft. Joe Jonas - "I Bet"
Just a great breakup jam.
24. Alessia - "Here"
Although her debut album was enjoyable but not striking, when you have a first single this strong, you can overlook that. I hope she stays true to herself and puts out more songs like this.
23. Drake - "Hotline Bling"
Yes, it is almost too ubiquitous, but this song had to make this list.
22. Empress Of - "Standard"
This was another record I had trouble finding one song that I wanted to put on this list. For me, it was that monstrous bass line and her epic vocals that sealed the deal.
21. Hot Chip - "Need You Now"
About the 3:00 mark in the song we reach the sublime.
