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.
9. Walk Off The Earth – "Rule the World"
Walk Off the Earth are utterly flawless at mixing pop, rock and reggae into a seamless and unique blend all their own. That's not always quite so easy to do. But these guys? They've made the art of fusing different styles, sounds and genres their bitch. With "Rule the World," the band gets anthemic, thanks to fraternal singalongs and the interplay of the male and female vocals!
"Rule the World" sounds like it should be theme song for the next edition of the World Cup. Hell, it should be utilized by the Olympics during Opening Ceremony events. It has that life-affirming, global energy.
Walk Off the Earth have emerged as the feel good artists of 2015 with both "Rule the World" and "Shut Up and Dance." And you know what? "Rule the World" will make you want to shut the hell up and shake that thing just as much.
