The Songs That Made My 2014!

I've said this a million times (ok, about 100 times) before - music is a very big part of my life and this year has been no different so when I saw that Helene was hosting a link up about the Best Songs of 2014 so of course I wanted to join the party!

The Best Songs Of 2014

Stay With Me - I don't want to lie to you, I have no idea when this song came out I just knew I loved it and Sam Smith and Adele could possibly make the most heartwrenching love album known to mankind.

I would have to say that Stay With Me is the song that will always remind me of this year because it's the one that has been most consistent over this year.

 Come Get It Bae - don't hate me but I was actually not a very big fan of Pharrell Williams in the past, I always enjoyed his songs but never felt compelled to buy them until this one. This song made me so happy every single time I heard it on the radio. Hands down my go to happy dance song this year. Have I mentioned I hate the word "bae" but I love this song #SorryNotSorry

Thinking Out Loud - Who are you if you have not included this song on your list? This is ridiculously beautiful and hands down my lyrics of the year! Again, I haven't been a huge fan of Ed Sheeran's before but Oh My Word thing song opened my eyes to his amazingness.

"And I'm thinking 'bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways
Maybe just the touch of a hand
Well, me—I fall in love with you every single day"

"'Cause honey your soul could never grow old, it's evergreen"

I Lived - I've told you before that One Republic follow me on Twitter (why don't you???) but I actually only had a few of their songs on my phone but literally the first time I heard this song I knew I was going to love it and my instincts were right. I think it's probably because the lyrics are on point once again but also because I've been trying to live my life this way this year.

I know this is my favourites list but I thought it would only be fair to add a few of my least favourite songs:

1. Shake It Off - T.Swift - I know earlier in the year I said I liked it but damn this song got super annoying but not as annoying as ...
2. All About That Bass - Meghan Trainor - I will sing along to this song because it's been played so much it's drummed into my head so badly I want to stab my ears! I loved this song at some stage but it was just overplayed and went from hit to hit me in the head so I don't have to listen to it. Also the fact that all her songs seem to sound the same just really annoyed me.  #RantOver
3. Wiggle - Damn you Jason Derulio I hate this song it's offensive and freaking annoying.

Soooooo, spill it - what's your best of the best of 2014????
