The Best Songs Of 2014

Joining the beautiful  Helene today for a favorite topic... music. So perfect for me right now cause being unfortunately unemployed I get to listen to my music all day long. I am a music person. I prefer it almost always over TV. I used to have the TV on all the time for background noise... bad habit. Now, I can't stand it. My  Bose is on or I am streaming Pandora from my computer all day long. The songs I am currently digging on seem to become the soundtrack for my life at the time. Does that happen to everyone? Cause I think about my life having a soundtrack at the end.  When I hear a particular song later I often think about what was going on in my life at the time I had a particular tune on repeat. It's a cool thing... the memories our brains associate with pieces of music.

In music as in life I am all over the place. So my list may not be what anyone else thinks are the best of 2014 but just the best parts of my own personal soundtrack, the highs and lows and in betweens.... in no particular order. Enjoy.

I am a huge Walking Dead fan and I have discovered some great music through the soundtracks of the seasons of the show. This one from 2014....

Up The Wolves by The Mountain Goats

Up the wolves by The Mountain Goats on Grooveshark

Best concert I saw this year and the effects during this song... unreal!!!

Day For The Dead by Zac Brown Band

I discovered her this year... love her sound and vibe.

The Worst by Jhene Aiko

Possibly my new fave band of 2014, saw them in concert too. Future Southern Rock legends right here...

Good One Comin On by Blackberry Smoke

I know I'm late to the party but I needed to brood a lot this year. She works.

Young and Beautiful by Lana Del Rey

Another indie rocker from TWD sound track...

Oats In The Water by Ben Howard

Oats In the Water by Ben Howard on Grooveshark

Cause, well... this has become my mantra for certain people in my life....

Who didn't fall in love with this guy this year? Give the acoustic version a listen and think about the one you love:) Ur welcome.

Latch (acoustic) by Sam Smith

Latch (acoustic) by Sam Smith on Grooveshark

Another fave concert of the year. IDGAF what the haters say, I love this man, his music and his butt.

Roller Coaster by Luke Bryan

And this must be on every one's list. Right?? I predict it will go down in history as one of the greatest party anthems ever.
