Top 75 Songs of the Year (51-75)

Continuing the best of the year coverage, I am ranking the best 75 songs of the year. This is the bottom of that, #’s 51-75 listed in order.

I’d like to think my musical tastes and favorites broadened this year and that this list would reflect this. This snippet of favorite songs features hip-hop doing their own endearing-in-their-own-way sort of love songs (“Power Trip”, “Bound 2”), humorous looks at urban life (“Wonderbread”), rap for the 1% (“Picasso Baby”) and that that uses comic book references (“Dark Knights”).

There are ladies belting out songs (“Let it Go”, “If You Wait”, “Nearly Midnight, Honolulu”, “You Are the Apple”), sad dudes singing sad songs (“Sea of Love”, “The Woodpile”, “Colombia”), and guitar-driven rock (“Do I Wanna Know?”, “Best of Friends”).

I hope to give more of my thoughts of the year in music later as the countdown continues, but for now here is the list.

At the end, I’ll post a Spotify playlist with all of the songs on it.
