Here are my other 2014 Rankings if you missed them:

Favorite Concerts 0f 2014
Favorite Albums of 2014

Well, it’s about that time of the year.  After a full year of listening to songs, attending concerts, and contemplating lyrics, it’s time to reveal my year-end list for the best of 2014 in music. It’s always hard to quantify why a song or album is better than another, so I’ll just preface by saying that these are my subjective favorites. There’s nothing objective about this list.

We’ll start off with my favorite songs of the year today, before going on to list my favorites shows among the ones I attended tomorrow. We’ll then finish off with my favorite albums for the year on Thursday.

The songs on this list are songs officially considered singles by the bands who released them. There are no deep cuts on this list. The list below should give you an idea of which albums made my favorite albums list in 2 days.

20. Sylvan Esso – Coffee

19. Alvvays – Archie, Marry Me

18. Taylor Swift – Out of the Woods

Could Taylor really make my top albums list?!
