top-10-thursday-songs-of-2014I really thought “Fancy” would own me for the rest of the year and then Taylor Swift came in last minute and at the right time. I would’ve never guessed she’d beat out a Clueless homage video but she did. However, my love of females in pop this year didn’t hold up when it came to the song that had my heart this year.

10. The Color and Sound “Cigarettes”

9. The Wild Life “History”

8. Iggy Azalea “Fancy”

7. The Unlikely Hero “The Kid Who Never Did Anything Right”

6. Loners Society “LaGrange”

5. Meghan Trainor “All About That Bass”

4. Aaron West and The Roaring Twenties “Divorce and the American South”

3. Demi Lovato “Really Don’t Care”

2. Taylor Swift “Blank Space”

1. Sledding with Tigers “Not So Body Posi After All”

wrapped-in-the-covers-most-played-songs-of-2014According to a random Google search and an article posted back in October the following were the most streamed songs in 2014. So why not pick a cover to celebrate? Can I just say that I hope that band Magic stays in this year and “Rude” doesn’t manage to sneak its way into 2015? We’ll just do it in countdown formation.
