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.
12. OMI – "Cheerleader" (Felix Jaehn Remix)
Don't do yourself a disservice by letting the title of OMI's "Cheerleader" mislead you. This is not a sugary sweet, rah rah, pom-pom shaking jam about the most popular chick in high school. Not even close. It's a light, airy, summer-ready anthem about finding that right girl for you... totally on accident. That's one of the best experiences in life and love.
OMI's dreamy, island-inspo voice is backed by keys, a sax and street-style percussion, adding a soft, undulating rhythm to the song. "Cheerleader" is seriously the most chill jam of 2015. Whenever we listen to it, we feel like we are floating on a cloud. Ahhhhhh....
It's so, so, so good. Do yourself a favor and make sure this track is on your iPod playlist when you head out to soak up some rays at the beach. Sunblock and this song are pretty much all that you need in order to have a great day enjoying the sun and its rays.
