My Top 20 Songs of 2014

It’s time to share the songs that I loved this year and to share one that I couldn’t stand!

There are no country songs on the list since country radio pretty much doesn’t play the artists I want to hear (except their oldies), so I don’t listen to country.

However, I really liked Maddie & Tae’s “Girl In A Country Song”, but I don’t know if it was for the cute video or the song, so here it is as an extra!

MADDIE & TAE — “GIRL IN A COUNTRY SONG”

CASH CASH (featuring BEBE REXHA) — “TAKE ME HOME”

ERASURE — “ELEVATION”

Casey_Kasem

Since I’m counting down my favorite twenty songs of 2014, I want to take a moment to remember the man who got me interested in music charts and countdowns, Casey Kasem.

Kasem died this past summer at the age of 82 after a long battle with Parkinson’s Disease and dementia.

As Kasey told us each week on his “American Top 40” countdown, “keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars”.

Before we get to my favorite song this year, let’s take a look back to my favorite song of 2013.

HAILEY ROWE — “MY BOYFRIEND IS GAY”

Now, on with the countdown and my favorite song of 2014!

This is the second appearance from T-Swizzle from her “1989” album.

Another number 1

TAYLOR SWIFT — “BLANK SPACE”

Thank you for checking out my countdown.  Let me know what you liked or didn’t like.

Gag Me

Speaking of not liking, my least favorite song of 2014 was “Wiggle” by Jason DeRulo (which is sad because his first album in 2010 was one of my favorites of the year!

There was another song that I didn’t really care too much about on the radio, but once I saw the over-the-top, crazy, dirty video, then I liked it more.  But, not enough to be one of my twenty favorite songs of 2014.  But, here it is as an extra.

This video is sick!

DJ SNAKE & LIL JON — “TURN DOWN FOR WHAT”

As I look forward to 2015, I sure hope that Reba’s new song, “Going Out Like That”, that hits country radio on January 6th makes the list and gives me a reason to listen to country music again.  Also, let’s get some new Patty Loveless music, too.

Reba 2011

Happy New Year!
