It’s been another great year for new music, 2014 did not disappoint at all.  This post is always my favourite one to put together, the problem is always trying to keep the number of songs down.  I settled on 50 tracks (listed here in playlist order, not a ranking) that rocked my year, take a look below and agree, disagree, discover of just hit play.  As usual, I did my best to make these playlists on soundcloud, spotify, rdio, youtube and this year on Dropmark (which I use for saving videos).  For those who like to watch your playlists, try out my collection.
