My iTunes wasn’t blessed with an abundance of good songs this year. I had so much going on with my life that I forgot to pay attention.
Levels - Avicii The year of the Avicii. Didn’t that catchy use of Etta James voice from “Something’s Got A Hold On Me” get stuck in your head. It never got annoying too! Pleasure? pleasure! pleasure?!
The Wilhelm Scream - James Blake The most innovate artist I discovered this year. I’d describe his music as an orgy of dubstep, soul, chill, and experimental.
Holocene - Bon Iver This is one beautiful record, but I don’t think I can listen to it in the near future. This was the soundtrack of my life when I was going downhill in Vegas. Maybe in the future, when I can pleasurably emote to it.
Midnight City - M83
Okay i’m FUCKIN lazy and it’s not like you’re going to read all this nonsense anyway here is 5 to 20 in no particular order.
Wildfire - Sbtrkt
Rolling In The Deep - Adele
Shake it Out - Florence + The Machines
No Beef - Afrojack & Steve Aoki
Sun & Moon - Above & Beyond
Save The World - Swedish House Mafia
Feel So Close - Calvin Harris (So special mmm)
The Morning - The Weeknd (I don’t listen to hip-hop but this will penetrate your body)
Pressure - Starkillers & Alesso
Titanium - David Guetta (I am a seeeeeell outtttt i mean, titanium)
Pumped-up Kicks - Foster The People
Sexy & I Know It - LMFAO
Promises - Nero

Where’s Skrillex you ask? I have duct tape in my hand.
It was the year of dubstep (not really thrilled about that)
It was the year of Moombahton emerging
It was the year when top 40 was heavily influenced by electronic dance music
This band has been having sex with my ears for the past few days. Pointless to make a video/audio post since no one really plays them (specially when you start reading posts via hot keys). So if you want to know more about them, youtube “Stop & Stare”. This band is more than worth it.
