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.
This is a song I never heard. Th n when I saw it on his here I listened to it. It is OK I guess. But honestly I have heard better. I give this a thumbs up and a thumbs down.

2Guilty All the Same - Linkin Park
It's only the matter of time when will this song take #1 spot.
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.
This song deserves to be in the First!
The new single of Linkin Park is awesome, simply amazing!
I like so much this song!


It is the best of this year

4All 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

5Say 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

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?
Come on guys, This isn't fair to this song lying down at number 9. I think its best after dark horse...
Best song of the year, and this comes from a Beatlemaniac!

16Same 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


17Shake 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.
I liked this song a lot. I thought she did great at the VMA'S. She's a fun artist. She knows how to perform to. I think Taylor really wowd people with the video to.

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.

This song is underrated and addictive!

50Once 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

A fun piece! Jackie sings anything well.
A real ear worm!
More comments about Go Time - Jackie Evancho

61#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!

Amazing Song! Should be way higher!
