2015 was a great year for music, so many great surprises and fulfilling songs. These 15 songs were my favorite.
Everyday’s Like Christmas by Kylie Minogue So magical and heartwarming. Gives you bubbly cheer and deserves to be a Christmas classic.
Levels by Nick Jonas A funky dance jam that will get you in a club/party mood. Wish it was longer, but I still love you, Nick!
The Other Boys by Nervo feat. Jake Shears, Kylie Minigue and Nile Rodgers Gay anthem of 2015? This disco infused track is a dance floor riot. Kylie and Jake are perfect in the song. Want more collaborations by these 3 musical artists.
Love Me Like You Do by Ellie Goulding Ellie Goulding’s best song so far. So sultry and sensual. It’s a beautiful power ballad with Goulding’s dreamt vocals and Max Martin’s swelling synths.
Honeymoon by Lana Del Rey Emotionally thrilling. Cinematic. Epic. Lana released a heart stopping ballad that’s more aspiring than anything any other artist has released this year.
#10. Inhale Exhale by Tynisha Keli My girl came back and she completely slated this song. This soulful, elegantly produced pop/R&B ballad really tells the truth and relatable. Fused with lyrical wittiness and amazing instrumental, this is an aural masterpiece.
#9. I Bet by Ciara Another strong comeback from one of my favorite artists. Showcasing an honest and open side of Ciara, it’s a new heartbreak anthem. Smooth and triumphant, Ciara released one of her best songs to date.
#8. Just Getting Started by Hawk Nelson This fun hand clapping sing along song is so catchy. Lyrically, it’s about no limit in which what we can accomplish. It’s a theme anybody can use and be inspired by.
#7. Can’t Deny My Love by Brandon Flowers Amazing pop tune! It’s very unique and Flowers sounds amazing in it. It’s bold and one of the best songs Flowers has written and released.
#6. Gibberish by MAX feat. Hoodie Allen With witty lyrics and smart production, MAX and Hoodie Allen released a wicked song. The distortion of the word ‘gibberish’ really makes the song sound very fresh and should’ve been a hit.
#5. I’m A Ruin by Marina and the Diamonds My favorite song from Froot. Marina’s songwriting and vocals are absolutely in a league of their own. The chorus flows with energy and lovelorn, it’s sad and guilty showcasing how real Marina is.
#4. Bleeding Out by Wynter Gordon A heartfelt pop ballad about love and loss sing by Wynter’s haunting vocals. Really touches your heart and makes you shed a tear. Saddest heartbreak song of 2015. Adele take notes.
#3. Confetti by Hilary Duff So summery and glittery, it’s a fun dance pop song. The sample of Belinda Carlisle’s Heaven Is A Place On Earth really fits and makes the song special.
#2. Better When I’m Dancing by Meghan Trainor A very breezy summery song that gets you in a dancing mood. So catchy, Meghan really made a surprising track that’s harmless and just pure fun.
#1. Black and White by Kylie Minogue So unconventional, it’s bizarre pop collaboration with Shaggy that is amazing. With a banging chorus and great chemistry, this song is addicting, bold and a bit strange, but it’s one of the best pop experiments of 2015.
