Cuter Than Pie’s Top 20 Songs Of 2014

I originally posted one of these playlists at mid-year, but it’s been a huge year for new music, so it was time to update the playlist.  Now, I don’t know how you felt about 2014, but for me, it was probably the best year of the decade so far for music.

When I put together playlists, or just lists of songs, I don’t normally take the time to rank them.  This time around, I had some pretty strong opinions, so at least the top 10 songs here are in the order that I think they deserve to be. I also tried to limit my choices to only one song per artist.  Would some of these artists have had more than one song on this list otherwise?  It’s definitely a possibility.

The Weekly Dose 08-12-14 (featuring Harry Nilsson)

When I started this weekly playlist, my goal was to get good music out there where people would actually listen to it.  Now, I don’t know if people are actually listening, but we do get a decent amount of traffic and some of my playlists have subscribers, so at least it’s some kind of a success so far.  A few years back I hosted an online radio show called In The Mix. My opening line to every show was always “open your ears and open your MIND” because that’s exactly what I wanted people to do.  I was playing mostly new music (like I usually put together here) and mostly music of a certain genre but occasionally I’d throw in other things that people may not THINK they would like, but I hoped they would listen to it anyway.

This week’s edition of The Weekly Dose is one that might not interest those who are mostly into new music, and indie rock, as this is the first real “flashback” edition, with an older artist, but I’m hoping you’ll still give it a listen and love it as much as I do.

Playlist: The Best Songs of 2014 So Far…

I don’t know how you feel, but for me the last few months have practically flown by… As they say, “time does fly when you’re getting drunk” (or something like that).  But since it’s now July, and there have already been so many great songs and albums released in the first half of this year (my personal 2014 “best of” already contains more songs than all of 2013 combined) I thought it would be as good a time as any to compile a playlist with the best songs of the year so far…

2014 has already seen the release of several great LP’s, from old favorites (like Beck, St. Vincent, and Jack White) to new ones too (Parquet Courts, Future Islands), and the second half of the year should be just as good, with new releases from Spoon, New Pornographers, Sia, Jenny Lewis and “Weird Al” Yankovic (just to name a few)… Continue reading
