Ashes Picks For the Best Songs Of 2014

Happy December!

Wow. What a year for music. Even though nothing will ever beat the comfy, nostalgic warmth of the late 90’s/early 00’s for me, 2014 was quite impressive (albeit, still not over).

Below is a modified list of the songs that were quite literally music to my ears these past 12 months. I’m 99% sure all songs listed can be found by searching for them on my blog.

Anything by The 1975. Seriously. But if I had to pick, I’d go with their most recent gem, “Medicine”

It’s a three-way tie for Ariana Grande’s “Break Free” f/ Zedd, “One Last Time” and “Just A Little Bit Of Your Heart” This year did wonders for her career. 

Banks “Beggin For Thread”. An understated pop phenom. 

Bleachers “I Wanna Get Better” + “Wild Heart”. Do yourself a favor and go see them live. You won’t regret it. 

Clean Bandit “Rather Be” f/ Jess Glynne. What’s a best of year list without this song? I mean, those strings! 

Damien Rice “The Greatest Bastard”. The feels. 

Ed Sheeran “Thinking Out Loud”. The man can sing AND dance!

Ella Eyre “Comeback”. Let that motherfucker burn 🙂

Jessie Ware “Say You Love Me”. The feels part deux. 

La Roux “Sexotheque”. As close to perfect as a song can get. 

O.A.R. “Peace”. Underrated. 

Sia “Chandelier”. Sick.

Tove Lo x2 with “Out Of Mind” + “Moments”. Pop’s newest contender. 

White Sea “Future Husbands Past Lives”. Epic shit.

Super fun mashup. Definitely recommend checking out DJ Topsider. Lots of ridiculously catchy mixes you can download on Soundcloud. 

Zedd ft. Foxes “Clarity” (Acoustic version)

What do you get when you combine one of the hottest EDM acts right now, an exceptional pop artist from the UK and a piano? Perfection.

I’ve been a fan of Foxes for a while now since discovering her fabulously flawless anthem “Youth”, so I was eager to check out this collaboration. You can listen to the original track here. It’s totally brilliant but I’m a sucker for acoustic piano songs. Someone please tell me where I can download this immediately!
