2015: Songs of the Year (50-26)


2015 was a strong year for music that saw the return of Missy Elliott and Adele, yet Drake refused to leave. A one-eyed pirate from New Jersey high-jacked the airwaves with a love song about cooking crack. Young Thug’s “unorthodox” flow found crossover success and an Australian introvert wrote some of the year’s catchiest tunes. Without further adieu these are the undisputed top songs of the year.
