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]Never heard about it

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 talks about the media and how there's a lot of fake people (including Taylor Swift) in the industry. I wish they weren't breaking up or someone wasn't leaving the band.

3All 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]Such a calm and wonderful song

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 is definitely the best song I've heard for 2014

5Can't Remember to Forget You - Shakira
I have never heard the song but the cover is horrible
It is the best song on earth you should no that by now make it number one (and shakira is the best singer to)
I really love this song!
[Newest]It is amazing, Shakira is one of the only real singers of 2014

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]It's a very good song

7Problem - Ariana Grande
I'm sorry, but this song sucks. Your's truly was a better album than My everything. Sorry ):
Why this song in 11! You know what's music?! Maybe you think it's better than "brother" song of Morten Harket? Or better than "Drunk Tonight" of Emilie De Forest? Or better than newest Pink Floyd Albums songs? Or better than "Into A Fantasy" of Alexander Rybak? Or better than Newest Lucy Hale Albums songs? Or better than Newest Birdy Albums songs? R you sure really?
This song sucks balls. Ariana did better
[Newest]This is my 2nd fave song

8Shake 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 ๐Ÿ’™ love it so much ๐ŸŒธ
I love this song and if it was in my list it would be about number2
[Newest]This song makes me wanna dance, I DON'T KNOW WHY. IT'S SO GOOD

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!


I really love this song. How could you not like this the lyrics and the rhythm are perfect. I wouldn't change it for anything not that I could anyways.
I like it but why doesn't. She show her face doesn't she want credit for what she has done and what is the meaning or message in the song anyway
[Newest]It' really the best song...

10Classic - 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
It's catchy but if you pay attention to the lyrics they're saying how the girl is like other people and that she's classic and not original.
[Newest]I like the song I just don't pay attention to what the lyrics are ACTUALLY saying

The Contenders

11Dark 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]This is one of my favorite songs

12Rather Be - Clean Bandit
Great song with great lyrics and sound. The mix of piano and violin add a different yet loveable sound to this song. A lot better than most of the tired out hoo-hah that's coming out every week.

Also, the commenter who thinks this disrespects women for wanting men is stupid because in the music video, the main singer is a lesbian.
Um, excuse me but what is Rather Be doing here? It's way better than Happy, like SERIOUSLY.
I thought you meant that it shouldn't be here at first, and I was like, oh no you didn't!
It's a brilliant song and my mom had it for her wedding song that's why I love it well done clean bandit!
This song was released this year, so you be trippin, if your mom had a wedding this year you wouldn't be alive typing this comment
[Newest]My favorite song. Great video too

13Bang Bang - Jessie J, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj
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.
This song Is just plain stupid. personally I hate it with a passion, sorry if you like it but I can't stand it!
I kinda like it
[Newest]I loves it so so much bang bang in to the room

14Fancy - Iggy Azalea
Worst Song I've ever heard besides every other song that she made.


Can you just shut up? Stop blabbering about Iggy, we get it. You don't like her. So just shut up already!
You HAVE gotta be kidding me Right?...


Awesome song ๐ŸŽถ if you don't like the done your asking the wrong person
[Newest]This song is junk! Iggy Azalea is a joke!

15Ain't It Fun - Paramore
Ain't it fun sing this song all day long
A genuine pop song, in my opinion. The sarcastically fun yet serious tone behind the lyrics and the gospel choir just make it more memorable. There's a reason it's their biggest hit (and first top-ten) in the U.S. , it bleeds charisma as vibrant as Hayley's hair.
Its true you can't depend on your parents its your turn to live in the real world
[Newest]So, um, how is this up here?

16Animals - Maroon 5
I'm in love with Adam Levine
It's a well made song, seriously. Every body in the world have to listen to this.
Screw one direction. Maroon 5 is way better

17Stay 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.


Love this song so much! Has so much meaning and heartfelt lyrics<3 this artist has talent. !
I love Sam Smith. His voice is so real!
[Newest]I love you so much

18Talk Dirty - Jason Derulo
The best song that I've ever heard from him! I love the rapping part with 2 chainz it's so god and I'm addicted to this song.. It played over a 200 times in just a week and that's a lot for me
Talk dirty to me! Duh duh duh duh duh duh duh duh duh duh duh duh duh duh duh talk dirty!
Yay I really love this song! I only dislike the rap though, but I do love the song!
[Newest]You are so cute love you

19Ten Feet Tall - Afrojack
I love this song it's the best song I ever herd
This is a good song
Why isn't this #1? This song is brilliant!

20Not a Bad Thing - Justin Timberlake
Justin Timberlake is awesome and he is a great musician!
It's way better than all the songs above this...
His new songs with Michael Jackson! The King Of Pop. That's how good Justin timbarlake is.

21G.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

22Same 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


23Break 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.


This song is a bit annoying to me but she's great
This song is the bomb

24Go Time - Jackie Evancho
Most versatile and beautiful voice of this generation!
A fun piece! Jackie sings anything well.
A real ear worm!

25All About That Bass - Meghan Trainor
This song proved to me that the music industry has now ended. The singing and music are some of the worst I have ever heard and listening to the song is just plain torture.


Why? It's completely awful. Has to be one of the worst, most annoying, most atrocious excuses for a song ever released.


I LOVE it like so so much the song is just amazing because you know I'm all about that bass bout the bass tribal SORRY IF SPELT WRONG

26A Sky Full of Stars - Coldplay
Coldplay is just so amazing. I agree their older work is better but still, Coldplay is just infinitely remarkable. I could say I love them a billion times and it wouldn't be enough.
This is probably the worst Coldplay song there is, the older songs such as Fix You, Clocks, Viva la Vida and Paradise are much better.


Amazing, amazing, amazing... if I say thousand Amazing too, that would not prove to be enough to define how great this song is..


27Until It's Gone - Linkin Park
Amazing song! The lyrics are awesome!
This song is great go see Transformers:Age of Extinction to hear that song.
Very underrated song, should be higher!
[Newest]Best song be number one

28Team - Lorde
This song is amazing. Lorde is an incredible singer, I adore her.
This song will never get played out..
Best song ever my favorite!
[Newest]It got really old after about a month

29You and I - One Direction
There should be more One Direction on this list! At least Steal My Girl or Night Changes!
Love your song I whish I came up with it. Love Cheryl
I love love love love this song and band!

30Headlights - Eminem
My favourite song from my favourite artist! He sang this song as a tribute to his mother. I sincerely suggest you to listen this song.
I'd heard the song on the radio but I didn't really know what it meant so I watched the music video. I cried at the end when she was reading the letter.
This track deserves nothing less than a top position.

31Empire - Shakira
Shakira is gorgeous and this song is brilliant! Finally we see/hear a powerful ballad from her. The video is amazing too


This song is so underrated. this is a great song. and why is this N.28 and problem by Ariana Grande N.7 on the list? This song is pure trash and overrated. Those two songs should switch places now
This a magnificent song

32Black Widow - Iggy Azalea
I heart iggy azalea she is so funny
This is an amazing song...
She is amazing ๐Ÿ˜Ž
[Newest]Another great song from iggy go iggy

33Rude - Magic!
This is the only song that I like and what I've heard that I actually like.


Why you gotta be so rude? Put this song up higher!
Why you got to be so rude

34Final Masquerade - Linkin Park
YOU DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS SONG! It should be number 1, it's a lot better than one direction.
Really sounds like a happy song with a sinking feeling. Matter of time to reach the top
Sure this song gonna be in top 5 soon

35Best Day of My Life - American Authors
Evan though I'm a boy this song is awesome
... Why is your gender relevant to liking a song by an indie-pop group? How old are you?
Best song ever I love it so much!

36Boom Clap - Charlie XCX
Love this song so catchy

Congrats, Aloe Blacc. You have well passed my standerds in a song.

38Show Me - Kid Ink

39Drunk In Love - Beyonce
This song is just unorganized lazy makes no sense off beat off key off everything annoying weird and unlistenable
Should be in the toptens... it is a billboard hit! The song is just fabulous.

40Pills N Potions - Nicki Minaj
I still love. This lyric alone. This means, that even after all the hell someone put you through, yet you still love them. No matter what they have done, you have such true love that nothing can overcome it. This song is powerful.


I love this song because it take me back to when music was GOOD, and that was when Nicki was at her prime!
Amazing song by the greatest female rapper of all time. Awesome message too.
[Newest]I love this song, but I hate anaconda

41Latch - Disclosure

42Rap God - Eminem
God! He rapped so fast that I was like. Awesome!

Supersonic! Whats it doing at no. 87?
[Newest]The fastest rap I've ever heard

43With or Without You - Jackie Evancho

44Made to Dream - Jackie Evancho
Very beautiful, very personal song from Jackie - with meaning for all of us.


45Fever - The Black Keys
Good song, Not their best. It's better than most of the crap on this list

46Fire and Fury - Skillet

47Instant 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.


It's Daft Punk and Julian. It's from 2013, but whatever, it immediately gets my vote.

48Na Na - Trey Songz
First Hip Hop song of 2014 and it's number 1 of 2014 so far in my opinion.

49La La La (Brasil 2014) - Shakira
Love this song as much as soccer

50Painkiller - Three Days Grace

51Turn 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!


Have you seen the video of the cats dancing to it

52Centuries - Fall Out Boy
AMAZING SONG! I don't get why people say it isn't good. "I can't stop till the whole world konows my name". People keep saying that Fall Out Boy has changed, and I hate when they say that, because obviously they changed, everybody has to change. In my opinion, Fall Out Boy has always been AMAZING!

53You're Mine (Eternal) - Mariah Carey

54A Line In the Sand - Linkin Park
This number placement (49) is an embarrassment... This should be in the top ten
Awesome song... Can't blv its at 46... Come on it deserves to be in top 10

55Magic - Coldplay
I absolutely love this song I love your taste and I absolutely love the song Lost in the Dream- War On Drugs
Come on this is the best song it should be in top 5 position

They are awesome

56Girls Chase Boys - Ingrid Michaelson

57Red 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! Tiรซsto! This should be at Top 3!
This song is underrated and addictive!

58Bailando - Enrique Iglesias
It sounds like you are on a tropical island. It's awesome!


Nice song... Whats the meaning of Bailando
This is the best song

59Rebellion - Linkin Park
Supercool Song The best of Hunting party
This should be #1

60High Hopes - Bruce Springsteen
Love this song! But you guys have to listen to the song Love is War by American Young

610 to 100 (The Catch Up) - Drake

62Hallelujah - Peter Hollens
See the YouTube video.

63Money On My Mind - Sam Smith
I got money on my mind I LOVE it sad no one else has commented I bet they will :]
It's so underrated and his best song


64She Looks So Perfect - 5 Seconds of Summer
If I don't care about the lyrics, it would an amazing song
Loving this song so much at the moment. Should be higher up though...


Oh god I hate this song

65Once 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


I can't stand it when pop artists cover Disney songs. I don't like Lana's version

66Seeya - Deadmau5
Come on! This song is the greatest!


67Don't - Ed Sheeran

68There Goes My Baby - Enrique Iglesias
Yesterday this song is on 4th place but today this song down with 4 notches.


69Let It Go - The Last Sleepless City
This is just a stupid rock version of the original. Very weird. :(

70Keys 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

71Maps - Maroon 5

72Gunshot - Lykke Li

73Blank Space - Taylor Swift
Absolutely love Taylor Swift, and I'm a guy

74And We Run - Within Temptation
Relatively unknown, but still one of the best songs of the year.
This needs to get more attention, it's such an amazing song.

75Me and My Broken Heart - Rixton
This is so catchy


76Into the Blue - Kylie Minogue

77Legacy - Eminem
I can relate to this song so much.
Eminem rocks! Haters suck!


78Neverland - Demotional

79Break the Rules - Charli XCX

80Detroit vs Everybody - Eminem

81Say Something - Jackie Evancho
Phenomenal duet with Cheyenne Jackson, taken from Jackie's THIRD T.V. concert special.

82Foreign - Trey Songz

83Lay 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

84Wiggle - Jason Derulo
It's totally random, but I love being obnoxious with this song laugh out loud
Another song that Kim Jong-Un should get hold of, tripe at it's finest!


85Midnight Memories - One Direction
This song rocks and should be at the top of the list! Love you lads in 1D!

86Calm After the Storm - The Common Linnets

87Death Star - Moby

88Hunter of Invisible Game - Bruce Springsteen

89War Ready - Rick Ross

90Stay the Night - Zedd
Trashy! Lyrics SUCK so much, that even a PERFECT music makes no change here! That's how bad & repetitive lyrics ruined the perfect song!


Oops... Accidentally voted for this :(


91Pretty 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.


92Nasty - Pixie Lott
Pixie is back with an old classy twist!

93Love Runs Out - OneRepublic
What why is this way behind this is great.

One of the best song from lp, it really resembles Hybrid Theory.


96Happy Little Pill - Troye Sivan

97Take On the World - Sabrina Carpenter

Love almost anything by the Norwegian equivalent to Kraftwerk, but particularly this song.
