The 150 Best Songs of 2014 (90-71)


There's a little bit of magic, everybody has it
There's a little bit of sand left in the hourglass
There's a little bit of magic, everybody has it
There's a little bit of fight left in me yet

Well, friends, here we are again. Once again, we haven't listened to every release in 2014, so this is more of a "best of what we know" list. And we know some of you despise these things, but the truth is: we love looking back. And, really, we love a good list.

These are the songs that inspired us in 2014. We hope you find a few that you like.

Note: If the album was released in 2014, we considered the songs on it. Singles were also fair game.

So, let's get to it.
