The Top Ten

La Vie En Rose - Jumaane Smith
One of the world's premier young vocalists, Jackie Evancho, in combination with the musicality of veteran Jumaane Smith, make this great old standard sound fresh.
Loved it! Maybe a whole new genre for Jackie? She has the lower, warm, rich tones that could embrace more than just Classical Crossover. Diana Krall the second?

Jackie is a phenom in so many different ways. I hope she enjoys school, but gives a few concerts a year and keeps recording. Can't wait for her PBS special.

Truly one of a kind. Can't get enough.
An amazing performance by both the 21st Century's finest new singing voice, and one of the truly great trumpeters in the music world.
[Newest]I think this song and "Into a fantasy"of Alexander rybak and "Drunk tonight" Emmelie de forest are the best songs of 2014

2Guilty All the Same - Linkin Park
I by far love this song as well as all other Linkin Park songs! It starts off really slow and it's pretty suspenseful, but it is definitely worth the wait. Besides, who doesn't love the work that Linkin Park does, not only in their words, but in their other musical talents as well. Great song, it by far overtakes the others in my opinion. That may or may not be just because I love Linkin Park and Paramore, and other bands of such, but in my honest opinion considering I listen to everything and have heard all of the other songs on this list except for one, it's better than the others and deserves to be put at #1 to me.
It's only the matter of time when will this song take #1 spot.
This song deserves to be in the First!
The new single of Linkin Park is awesome, simply amazing!
I like so much this song!


[Newest]It is the best of this year

3Dark Horse - Katy Perry
Great song why has can't remember to forget you got 53 percent of the votes it is not the best of 2014
I love this song go Katy Perry!
[Newest]Katy Perry is the best

4Say Something - A Great Big World
This is amazing... I'm blown away and you will agree with me if you listen to it. Sure covers are good, but the original is damn good! Love it :3 <3 Truly remarkable and SHOULD not be down in 7th it is 1st to me and always will be. It makes me cry and I love it so much. The video.. Well it tears my heart apart. When the grandad lets go of his wife's hand.. This isn't about what modern 'pop' songs because they are just people complaining about their ex's! This is about love.. Of not letting go of your love and spirit. Many people WILL agree. My grandad had cancer when this was out... I loved him so much. The doctors gave him something which would either work or kill him.. And as I I write this I'm crying, but he survived and many do not! This song deserves 1st and it only go 4 percent what has happened to people's sense in music! WATCH, LIKE, FAVOURITE and SUBSCRIBE. This song has a meaning- a meaning so powerful it helps everyone over depression and it is DAMN good. Out of 100 I RATE IT 100 PERCENT!
Love it best song ever
[Newest]This song is really emotional and it deserves to be at the top to be honest

5All of Me - John Legend
It's so beautifuull :)
I've never heard such a beautiful song in many years... his voice, the piano, the video... these combinations makes this the most beautiful song EVER!
It should top this list, you all will agree with me after hearing this song!


I love "All of Me" I cried just hearing it. It's beautiful lyrics about loving someone so much... After 2013, I thought I was done with Pop music. When I heard this song in my friend's car. I fell in love. I turn the radio on every day hoping to listen to this song. Thank you John, I love this song, and now I love you.
It's a special song which makes me feel close to my boyfriend and the singer is very romantic
[Newest]This is my song to wake me up it so inspirational

6Pompeii - Bastille
Pompeii.. Well where do I start. Amazing vocals, so talented, instrumental is great, good looking :) ( because he is! ) and great song. Many times I sing this and now I see it is 9th what... No it can't be it needs at least to be 6th! Pop music is going down hill. Complaints about ex's, twerking, sexual abuse.. It can go on but this no this is amazing. Nothing of that list but everything good. Vote please and listen. Subscribe, like, favourite and share
I can't believe how good this song is. It is amazing, and it should really be higher. WHY IS HAPPY NUMBER 3 ON THIS LIST ANYWAYS?
This song makes you feel so relaxed and happy. Everyday when you listen to Pompeii you'll always feel like everyday is the best day of your life!
[Newest]The best song I ever heard

7Can't Remember to Forget You - Shakira
I have never heard the song but the cover is horrible

8Classic - MKTO
I love this song so much! It's adorable and catchy! Plus the fact the radio hasn't played it religiously like the annoying songs above!
When ever this is on the radio I sing it so loud and dance in my seat
Played this song for a girl/ though she didn't know she loved it. LOVE MKTO
[Newest]I love this song!

9Chandelier - Sia
How could no one notice this song! This made not be a pop genre song, but Sia's voice is so powerful and unique. Her voice could also been recognize in many #1 hits like Titanium.
By the way, the music video is also unique and great!


Amazing song, amazing lyrics, amazing artist.
This song is touching and amazing!
[Newest]This song is the reason I hate todays music. Listen to rock, your ears wont bleed

10Talk Dirty - Jason Derulo

[Newest]So, um, how is this up here?

Um, excuse me but what is Rather Be doing here? It's way better than Happy, like SERIOUSLY.
Rather be should at least be in the top ten list

13Not a Bad Thing - Justin Timberlake
Justin Timberlake is awesome and he is a great musician!
His new songs with Michael Jackson! The King Of Pop. That's how good Justin timbarlake is.

This is a good song
Just LOVE the song!
It's the best superb song ever. I love it I love to listen it again n again

16Shake It Off - Taylor Swift
Ever since I heard this song, I felt so bad. I hated Taylor Swift so much, and then she released this, which I have to say, is probably the best song in 2014. I just thought Taylor Swift would never make a good song, and would always make breakup songs, but this... Is the masterpiece of 2014.
Me and my friends rock out to this song every single day it's the best and gets you in a good mood, also it's really catchy my favorite part of the song starts with hey, hey, hey 💙 love it so much 🌸
Awesome song, just love it. It is only a matter of time when it is in the top 5

17Fancy - Iggy Azalea
Worst Song I've ever heard besides every other song that she made.

18Same Girl - Jennifer Lopez
Jennifer Lopez is a new judge on American Idol for Season 13!
Same Girl reminds me of her old good music from 1999-2003. She was very cool back then.J. lo should make more songs like this


19G.U.Y - Lady Gaga
I'm in charge like a G.U.Y.
This song may have been unsuccessful but damn, is it awesome!
I'll lay down face up this time

20Bang Bang - Ariana Grande
This is by Jessie J, Nicki Minaj, and Ariana Grande. It just says Ariana Grande! Oh well, still a good song, even if Ariana is the only one getting credit here.
Bang Bang by Jessie J and Ariana Grande featuring Nicki Minaj?
I kinda like it

21All About That Bass - Meghan Trainor

[Newest]I love this song, but I hate anaconda

24Black Widow - Iggy Azalea
I heart iggy azalea she is so funny

25Break Free - Ariana Grande
Ariana has lost her originality with this song. As a result, I would listen to Yours Truly again than her next upcoming album.


26Stay With Me - Sam Smith
Why does everyone love"Fancy" anyways? This song is kind of underrated. I mean it has outstanding vocals and heartfelt emotion. This should be higher up.

38Fever - The Black Keys

39Instant Crush - Daft Punk
I love this song. It's full of life. It should be way higher in the list.
An amazing song. I love that synth.


I love Daft Punk. I have their "random access memories" album.


I scroll down looking for something other than crap. it takes me 41 steps to get there. shame on the music industry

40Na Na - Trey Songz
First Hip Hop song of 2014 and it's number 1 of 2014 so far in my opinion.

41Painkiller - Three Days Grace

42Show Me - Kid Ink

43Fire and Fury - Skillet

44You're Mine (Eternal) - Mariah Carey
I Really love this track today


45Turn Down for What - DJ Snake & Lil Jon
Awesome song but WEIRD music video!
Extremely catchy and good for Call of Duty! This should be #1!


Common people it's a great song

46A Line In the Sand - Linkin Park

47Drunk In Love - Beyonce
Should be in the toptens... it is a billboard hit! The song is just fabulous.
I hate that song its shie from cheryl.

48Red Lights - Tiesto
Tiesto has lost his touch with this song. You've made a king of trance sound like One Direction. Should not be on this list. But there are worse songs that were released this year, that's granted.


We could just run them 'red lights'. Give it a listen. You'll love it. Trust me! Tiësto! This should be at Top 3!
This song is underrated and addictive!

49Legacy - Eminem
I can relate to this song so much.

50Pretty Hurts - Beyonce'
For me one of her best songs. Actually I don't know why I don't like her music, but this song must be higer 96th place.


51High Hopes - Bruce Springsteen
Love this song! But you guys have to listen to the song Love is War by American Young

52Magic - Coldplay
I absolutely love this song I love your taste and I absolutely love the song Lost in the Dream- War On Drugs
I love this song so much! It is so lovely. It makes me relax so much... If you were in a jacuzzi it would be the best thing ever! (by the way Coldplay is the best band ever!, !,!, !,!, !,!, !,!
They are awesome
Come on this is the best song it should be in top 5 position

53West Coast - Lana del Rey
It's the best. She's the best.
It's Lana dek rey, what else can I say to win you over.
This is a pretty good song.

54Rebellion - Linkin Park
Supercool Song The best of Hunting party

55Anaconda - Nicki Minaj
Too good I'm going die
Garbage! I hate this song & video. Well there are a lot of good sexy music videos (e.G. Can't remember to forget you, Beautiful liar, La tortura, Umbrella, Dance Again, etc.). But Nicki Minaj is NEVER gonna be atractive, thought she looks a lot more tolerable with black hair. What about this song: it's composed of two sexy & empty relationships & 'a long history about her fake butt'.



56#SELFIE - The Chainsmokers
No. Please destroy this. It's dangerous. Kim Jong-un is using it as a form of torture.


Not even a song! It's just an annoying teenage girl ranting about a guy named Jason and some selfies! No one I know does that on Instagram! Plus, she smokes. No one does that anymore and it's just wrong (check the lyrics and I'm actually saying the truth). If this is what my generation is becoming, I'm time traveling back to the 1940s-1980s. We basically ruined music.


Can you guys shut the hell up? Guess what, it's a joke! Its not a real song! It was just a joke, and an awesome one because it made fun of annoying hipsters!

57Once Upon a Dream - Lana Del Rey
Wow. A perfect match to a magnificent movie. I'm not into Disney princess because it's all like Oh! I'm gonna rebel by dating a boy! OOOH. Like rebel by being a lesbian, because all the conservatives who watch disney will be so mad! But yeah, maleficent was a dark movie that I actually liked. I mean, it wasn't the fault in our stars, the hunger games, or the hunger games catching fire, but it was pretty good!
Well I didn't mean creepy. I meant her voice sounds so mysterious


58Maps - Maroon 5

59Let It Go - The Last Sleepless City
This is just a stupid rock version of the original. Very weird. :(

60Keys to the Kingdom - Linkin Park
One of my favorite LP songs.
There are so many terrible songs on this list, this song should at least be in the top five

61Go Time - Jackie Evancho
Most versatile and beautiful voice of this generation!
A fun piece! Jackie sings anything well.
A real ear worm!

62She Looks So Perfect - 5 Seconds of Summer
If I don't care about the lyrics, it would an amazing song
Oh god I hate this song
Loving this song so much at the moment. Should be higher up though...


63There Goes My Baby - Enrique Iglesias
Yesterday this song is on 4th place but today this song down with 4 notches.

This is an awesome song. Don't underestimate him.

65Bailando - Enrique Iglesias
It sounds like you are on a tropical island. It's awesome!

Relatively unknown, but still one of the best songs of the year.
This needs to get more attention, it's such an amazing song.

67Into the Blue - Kylie Minogue

75Hunter of Invisible Game - Bruce Springsteen

76Rap God - Eminem
God! He rapped so fast that I was like. Awesome!
This song is sick! Who else can rap like that?
Supersonic! Whats it doing at no. 87?

77War Ready - Rick Ross
It's a shame because I rilly used to like rick ross but then he came out as being gay and I just can't listen anymore, no effence

78Nasty - Pixie Lott

79Blood Is Thicker Than Water - Ill Nino

80Happy Little Pill - Troye Sivan

81I'm a Freak - Enrique Iglesias

82Lay Me Down - Avicii
Avicii perfomed the song in 2013 on a concert, but this song was officially released as a single in True. on this year, so this song definitely deserves to be in this list, maybe a bit higher!


As long as avicii is on here, I'm happy
Lay Me Down is from 2013

83It's On Again - Alicia Keys

84Timber - Pitbull

85Take On the World - Sabrina Carpenter

86Addicted to You - Avicii
I love this song. Avicii is my favorite

87Stay the Night - Zedd

88Don't Stop - 5 Seconds of Summer

89Take Out the Gunman - Chevelle

I personally don't really like this song but others do so you know

92The Devil Is a Lie - Rick Ross

93Story of My Life - One Direction
This song was awesome! It's definitely one of the best songs One Direction have done so far!

Lets put it this way. I'm not really into 1d, but this is the song I can tolerate the most
