As the years go on, this list has become more agonizing to sift through because of the amount of great stuff that's out there. I won't complain though. The time and effort that goes into this makes me feel good about songs even in the lower reaches of the list, and that's a feeling that increases with each year. So yes, it's definitely worth it. As usual, I've included a Spotify playlist and for the tracks that weren't available there, I used Soundcloud to compile them (those songs will have a * next to them). Both playlists are also embedded at the bottom. For songs that couldn't be found on either, I just simply included a hyperlink to where you can listen (designated with a ^). If you haven't yet, check out my albums list as well. Hope you find something new that you'll enjoy!
1. FKA twigs - Two Weeks
The past couple of years in music have seen an increasing fascination with the spaced-out, drum heavy sounds of mid to late-90s R&B to much acclaim. One has to wonder where the critical adoration has been all this time and why it took a touch of the fringe to make it palatable and hip (i.e. Banks, The Weeknd, How To Dress Well, etc.). FKA twigs' career has definitely benefited from this growing trend, but with all the comparisons to experimental artists like Björk and James Blake, make no mistake about it; "Two Weeks" is a pure R&B record. Once upon a time, turntable scratches and Auto-Tune were alien to rhythm and blues, so don't let the screwed vocals that pop up throughout deter from classifying it as such. If anything, they add to the atmosphere, which is probably one of the most sensual to come down the pipeline in a year or two. That uneasy tension is likely what twigs wants. For the audience to be kept off guard, to be lulled away from their equilibrium leaving themselves susceptible, until finally, she coos in a voice dripping with confidence and candle wax, "Give me two weeks/you won't recognize her." You're left helpless, she's in full control and more than likely, you're regretfully enjoying every minute of it. What genre besides R&B is more notorious for moves like that?
2. GFOTY - Don't Wanna/Let's Do It*
Seemingly crafted from the darkest crevices of the worst hallucinogenic trip known to mankind, GFOTY's "Don't Wanna/Let's Do It" exists in a world completely of its own. In a terrific year for the PC Music crew, this was the track that stood out the most, mainly for how nonsensical it was. Other members of the British collective, such as Sophie and A.G. Cook, have a way of testing the boundaries of music that border between grating and charming, depending on where your taste lies. "Don't Wanna/Let's Do It" is both familiar and foreign at the same time, using a lot of the trademarks found in pop and R&B, but it eventually flies off the rails and into the ocean, and then back out of the water and over the moon. With warped ping-ponging vocal effects that flirted with schizophrenia and a bare-bones beat that linked back to grime's earlier days, the rule book may have been disregarded, but that's usually when the most fun happens.
3. Shamir - If It Wasn't True
There's a fragility in 20 year-old Shamir Bailey's voice that I'm constantly drawn to. It's unknowingly vulnerable and the lack of polish gives it a kindred quality comparable to many of the journal entries written by young adults across the world daily. Given the minimal nu-disco stylings of the song, ESG is a comparison that often comes to mind. Without a pure grasp of technical quality, the Scroggins sisters provided some of the most innovative music of their time based on will and imagination. I'm not saying that Shamir is reinventing the wheel here. After all, "If It Wasn't True" certainly recalls the heyday of DFA Records during the early '00s, which producer Nick Sylvester covered as a music critic back then, but I definitely get that same sense of wonderment that ESG possessed. It's the kind of wide-eyed enthusiasm that's spent countless hours practicing in the bathroom mirror and when given enough room to cultivate, it can be as addictive a listen as we have here.
4. Usher - Good Kisser
As soon as that flirtatious bass line hits, it becomes a matter of inevitability that hips will be massaged and lips will wander. Usher has taken us to the bedroom before, but never with as much raw sexuality as seen here. Not to take anything away from "That's What It's Made For" or "Nice & Slow," but "Good Kisser" is a less polite approach that relies more on virility than charm. He's always been the handsome prince that could make crowds swoon with the flash of a smile and a well-timed spin move, but it's when we hear Usher's seldom-used lower register that we're enlightened to a different kind of desire. How "Good Kisser" failed to rise up the charts has been one of the most baffling questions of the year. The closest answer I could come up with is that maybe America wasn't ready for Usher to ditch the handsome prince persona just yet, that perhaps it felt like a ploy for attention to more traditional R&B fans for him to be so overt. Whatever the reason, if the national birth rate sees a decrease in 2015, we only have our musical taste to blame.
5. Redinho - Playing With Fire
The technology of the 21st century is an amazing thing. The living room dreams spawned from watching videos on BET and MTV can be easily achieved by just about anyone with a laptop and a few keyboards. Much like the DIY ethos that made its mark on rock in countless garages and basements, R&B is finally getting that treatment and it's exciting. As much as we appreciate our gyrating, six-pack blessed, velvet-voiced Romeos, there is now room for those that may not quite match up as a physical specimen, but have a mind filled with creative ideas that are equally deserving of being heard. Redinho's "Playing With Fire" is certainly a throwback to the late '90s, yet it's pure 21st century in its heavy reliance on a thundering trap beat and a talkbox to help cast away any comparisons to the Ushers and the Ginuwines of yesteryear. It's a terrific foundation that makes the most of the tools of the future and would have been unimaginable 15 or so years ago. Once upon a time, Lou Reed wanted to drive along in his automobile with no particular place to go. Kurt Cobain wanted someone to want him and needed him to need him. Count me as looking forward to someone hoping to be a bachelor looking for a partner.
6. TiRon & Ayomari feat. Anderson .Paak - My Supernova
Love that inspires comparisons to outer space is often reliable territory for a musician to explore. The expansiveness of the galaxy is ripe with apt metaphors and similes to describe an infatuation that simply cannot be contained on Earth, and with the right production, a sci-fi atmosphere could strike just the appropriate tone. TiRon & Ayomari's "My Supernova" plays by those rules, although it feels a bit more grounded. The simplicity here in the spacing of the instruments reminds us that the galaxy, for all its wondrous sights and vastness is actually a pretty quiet place. Most listens of "My Supernova," for me, felt like I was ascending towards something without ever reaching there, as if I were floating, which was helped largely due to the stripped down nature of the music. That understanding of outer space affected the soul more than the imagination and when sincerity is added to the equation, shooting stars fly right in front of you without ever having heard a description.
7. Paramore - Ain't It Fun
According to my count, Paramore has cracked my year-end singles list nine times, yet I don't think I understood the true pop potential of lead singer Hayley Williams until "Ain't It Fun." Sure, Zedd's "Stay The Night" was solid and the pop part of their pop-punk days alerted me to Williams' talent, but when armed with a fanciful take on 1980s funk and a choir, she officially served noticed to Kelly Clarkson, Taylor Swift and Pink to make room at the table. With teenage angst in the rear view and the departure of the Farro brothers, Paramore was allowed to enter an alternate universe where they were allowed to unite the masses and Hayley belted as much as she wailed. They've been a special band for a while (nine times, people!!), so it's not a surprise that they could come up with something as catchy as "Ain't It Fun," but that they could credibly make you shake parts of your body they weren't capable of doing before is.
8. Moses Sumney - Man On The Moon
There are spots here where Moses Sumney's vocals are hard to decipher, as if he were a ghost wandering around a room for an unsuspecting audience that will listen. With all the talk of bodies leaving souls, it's a fitting artistic choice to go with and what helps make "Man On The Moon" so magical. Buried underneath the mystique is a man that sounds lost, but hopeful, that he will find peace somewhere. That solitude is conveyed through an abstract folk lens and a ominous guitar that sounds as if it were played at the bottom of a deep dark well. Through all the murkiness and the void, it's still Sumney that cuts through with warmth, and ultimately, beauty.
9. Sia - Chandelier
The pyrotechnics on display for the chorus of "Chandelier" provided more than just the usual jolt. When taking into account Sia's past battles with alcoholism and drug addiction, that cry for help transformed into a deep desperation that only those who have been 20 feet from falling to their deaths have experienced. It's with that strong plea and Sia's soaring vocals that "Chandelier" became not only one of the most memorable songs of the year, but also one of its darkest. She bared all, not just because that's the sort of firepower top 40 radio required, but because there's no other option when one can feel their grip fading.
10. Phantogram - Fall In Love
The most effective poisons are the kind that remain concealed until it's too late and the recipient has met their fate. "Fall In Love" operates in the same way. Vocalist Sarah Barthel sings of a relationship where she has done nothing but cause harm, only to find the other person fall in love, much to their disadvantage. There is no spite, nor any amusement to be found in Barthel's voice and on the surface the tone is far from regretful. The bad news goes down sweetly and without alarm thanks to a buzzing keyboard riff and a chorus that suppress the drama in its first half only to light up with electric fervor in its second. Phantogram gave us a warning filled with violent imagery, but we were too busy ingesting the sweetness of the track before we realized that our hearts were aching.
11. Beyoncé - ***Flawless
12. Dreamtrak - Contemporary
Dark alley synths with one of the nicest builds of the year.

I love this little reminder by Pharrell that simply states, "Don't think that just because I did 'Happy' I forgot how to flow."

Futuristic fusion jazz for a totally game Kendrick.
50. KING - Mister Chameleon
Donnie Simpson is scratching his head in disbelief somewhere that he never introduced this song.

53. Mr Twin Sister - In The House Of Yes
Atmospheric trip to the dance floor that circles around chill-out but provides rising tension.

55. Future Islands - Seasons (Waiting On You)

It's like being caressed by clouds and soaring through fireworks of a hundred different colors, all while your loved ones are cheering you on.

63. Kendrick Lamar - i
