    Default Your top 10 songs of 2015

    List your top 10 songs of 2015.

    Share a video (or link) of your favorite song of 2015 along with your post. If a song has already been shared by someone else, post a different one from your list so we don't have duplicates.

    Limit it to one video per post so the page doesn't become a nightmare.

    I'm not gonna tally things up or anything - this is just a good way for us to share some of our favorites from the year with each other.

    Happy listening and Happy New Year!

    I'll let Bryan post the Ought track. Mine aren't in order, either. Well, the Ought - Beautiful Blue Sky is definitely my #1 of the year. But everything else is not in order. I'll put up electronic songs after I make dinner.

    Songs:
    Ought - Beautiful Blue Sky
    Alex Bleeker and the Freaks - Country Agenda
    Ultimate Painting - Woken by Noises
    Julien Baker - Rejoice
    King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard - NGRI (Bloodstain)
    King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard - The Bitter Boogie
    Sufjan Stevens - Eugene
    Khruangbin - People Everywhere (Still Alive)

    Deerhunter - Breaker
    Courtney Barnett - An Illustration of Loneliness (Sleepless in New York)

    Electronic. These are just some of the stand outs I remember enjoying at my desk at home this year - I didn't go to many parties so don't have any real stand out dance floor moments of tracks playing out. Also SO much great electronic music came out this year. Looking forward to diving into publication lists, I'm sure I forgot to include a bunch of stuff here that I loved this year.


    Micronism - Steps to Recovery
    Shackleton - Headcleaner
    Gesloten Cirkel - Real Melbourne House
    Hodge - Tail of the Snake
    Voiski - Galaxy Call
    Saffron - Yalla (Moksa)
    Jack J - Thirstin'

    Nick Hoppner - Come Closer
    Kiasmos - Swept
    Kartei - Coco

    Wow this whole EP is outstanding. Took a look on discogs to put on my wishlist and it's actually a reissue from 1999 which blows my mind considering I was listening to Moby for electronic music during this year which wasn't bad but this is relevant now. Excellent rec.

    Thanks! There are maybe three or four songs I've heard that, every single time I hear them, just cause me to bawl uncontrollably. There's Minutemen - History Lesson, Part 2, Joanna Newsom - Cosmia and Ought - Beautiful Blue Sky, which is so far above every other song I heard this year that it's hard to even compare it to anything else. The first time I heard it was on XMU when they debuted it, and I had to pull my car over because it just hit me so hard. The lyrics take mundane small talk and, through repetition and performance, turn it into something emotionally pure, and the bass tone sounds like happiness:



    The rest:

    2. Kendrick Lamar - Alright
    3. Screaming Females - Hopeless
    4. Kurt Vile - Pretty Pimpin'
    5. Joanna Newsom - Anecdotes
    6. Courtney Barnett - Elevator Operator
    7. Deerhunter - Ad Astra
    8. Tribulation - Holy Libation
    9. Iron Maiden - Speed of Light
    10. Kamasi Washington - Change of the Guard

    Will have to go through and look at what I have, but right now my number one is foals' "London Thunder" Hit me so hard upon first listen. Lyrics easily related to a lot I have been through with health and my transplant last year, had it done at Stanford and when I first heard Yannis sing "Lost my mind in San Francisco..." I lost all control of emotion, ha.

    Unranked.

    CHVRCHES - Clearest Blue
    FFS - Johnny Delusional
    Joanna Newsom - Leaving the City
    Kendrick Lamar - King Kunta
    Lady Lamb - Billions of Eyes
    Missy Elliott - WTF (Where They From)
    Screaming Females - Wishing Well
    Slothrust - Crockpot
    Son Lux - You Don't Know Me
    Worriers - Yes All Cops

    The video for "WTF (Where They From)" was amazing and probably my favorite of the year. I also loved the ones for "Johnny Delusional" and "You Don't Know Me" with Tatiana Maslany. Regarding the latter, I would have been dismissive if you had told me I'd care at all about at trailer for a video, but damn.

    Based soley on the song, though, this is the one I want to include: Worriers - "Yes All Cops"
