From bangers to semi-ballads, the gang is all here...
It's been a good year for music thus far and we're only halfway through 2015. So of course we had to stop for a moment celebrate the midway point of the year by compiling our Top 15 Songs of 2015 So Far list, which includes The Weeknd, Fifth Harmony, Walk Off the Earth, Wiz Khalifa with Charlie Puth and many, many more.
It was an embarrassment of riches and there were lots (and we do mean lots of songs to sift through in order to narrow and whittle the list down to just 15.
The best thing about the group discussion we had in order to choose these songs was that there were no arguments or vehement disagreements. Everyone on staff felt these songs were the best of the year.
We're waiting to see which of these songs might end up being the song of Summer 2015. But whatever the case, every last one of these tracks gets stuck in our craws and our craniums. They all define the year 2015 in some way or another.
When these tunes come on the radio, we turn them up. When someone in the office cranks them at their cubicle, we jam out, too! We ask our friends, "Yo! Have you heard that new Fifth Harmony track?" That's our litmus test for these songs. We hear them. We like them. We love them. We keep on going back to them.
Here are the songs that have emerged as the best of the year. From bangers to semi-ballads, the gang is all here, so to speak.
13. Meg Myers – "Sorry"
As a culture, we always like to be exposed to a slightly "unstable" female singer/songwriter/vocalist who will swoop into our lives and shake things up, making us a tiny bit scared, super thrilled and a whole lot enraptured. There is some serious strength in being so overt about emotions. That was Alanis Morissette in the '90s. In 2015, Meg Myers is that vocalist.
Just listen to how her voice, shifts from a breathy, vulnerable vibrato to a more layered, empowered wail in the chorus of "Sorry."
It's a song about love lost and Myers sings like a ticking time bomb that could go off at any moment. We're not so sure she is actually sincerely apologetic, but the electricity in her delivery has us avoiding any questions and singing along.
Meg Myers shows off her pop and rock sides in "Sorry." We're #SorryNotSorry that she did.
