Best Songs of 2014

The Top Ten

Chandelier - Sia Chandelier - Sia Cover Art

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!

Perfect! Meaningful lyrics, that brings us a story of someone suffering from depression, but nobody sees it, once she hides herself by being a party girl. Alcohol and parties make her feel loved by her "friends" but when the night is over, she's alone and ashamed... rhythm, voice, melody... This song has everything!

I thought Sia was a show-off who was scared of people seeing her face because of how bad she was, there would be hate. But then I listened to this... And I realized Sia is a WONDERFUL singer!

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.

Guilty All the Same - Linkin Park Guilty All the Same - Linkin Park Cover Art

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.

That song by that "Uzbekistan" (he's Iranian actually) was released in 2013 though...

Linkin Park is one of the best bands from the 2000s they have written so many amazing songs and this song still proves they are able to do that in 2014. It starts of with a sawing heavy guitar riff then with mike Sinoda's epic piano with gut moving drumming then it all leads to this amazing heart pounding echo sounding solo and then the your just in for the ride this song really does show Linkin Park musically writing capability to one of there finest with as usual amazing lyrics without a doubt the best song from 2014

Amazing song... Top ten for sure...

Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson Cover Art

Dang son, whenever I hear this its like my heart is pumping like it wants to be in this music video and meet the singer because this guy has done a great job MTV HITS 4th time reaching 1st in BEST SONGS he deserved this and now he deserves 1st come on people I even made a vote comment if you like and REALLY THINK THIS SHOULD BE 1st say this #FUNK4LYFE. thanks hope you liked it.3.

How is Problem, Shake It Off, and Dark Horse in the top 10 and this isn't? How pathetic!

This deserves to be 279 numbers higher than it is right now! This song is the song of 2014 no doubt

While Mark Ronson may not be singing much in this song (with Bruno Mars doing most of the stuff), the song itself is good and many ways.

Shake It Off - Taylor Swift Shake It Off - Taylor Swift Cover Art

So so so so so so so so annoying blah blah blah shake it off blah blah blah shake it off

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.

This song is the reason music is dead. Most of the songs on this list are terrible. This song makes me wanna bang my damn head against the wall. No one should be listening to this. This KILLED MUSIC! LISTEN TO GOOD MUSIC LIKE ANTHRAX, DEATH, METALLICA, The BEATLES, RUSH, WHIPLASH, CARNIVORE, anything other than this waste of semen!

Just because you think nobody listens to rock music doesn't mean pop music is terrible.

How is this number 4 and everybody says they hate it? I love it. It's my favorite song from 1989 along with Welcome to New York. I first heard it and I misheard the lyrics. I thought she said she had stuff coming out of her brain instead of having nothing in her brain. After hearing it more times I loved it. She is amazing. It gets me up and happy. I love her old and new songs. She has wonderful music. Swiftie forever.

Rather Be - Clean Bandit Rather Be - Clean Bandit Cover Art

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.

It's a brilliant song and my mom had it for her wedding song that's why I love it well done clean bandit!

His mom could be remarrying someone, he has no reason to lie on this website

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!

Brilliant - with an even more amazing video!

Bang Bang - Jessie J, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj Bang Bang - Jessie J, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj Cover Art

This song Is just plain stupid. personally I hate it with a passion, sorry if you like it but I can't stand it!

A normal singer plus an overrated woman plus the worlds worst female rapper equals a very annoying overrated song

Just one mistake there: Ariana Grande isn't a woman. She's about four years old. - MojoSpaederman

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.

I actually like this song. I find it really good and I think Ariana and Nicki are doing really well for their standards (especially Nicki Minaj since 2014 wasn't a good year for her) besides it's kinda fun to listen the more you hear it

Blank Space - Taylor Swift Blank Space - Taylor Swift Cover Art

Taylor, this is your way, beautiful and very nice, I love you, continue songs please

It's amazing. I love it and it's so catchy. Taylor you are amazing. I don't care if people think it's stupid or pointless. It's crazy good and I love it. One line is so true and makes me laugh "Boys only want love if it's torture". I got a blank space for my favorite singer and I'll write Taylor Swifts name.

Can't believe it is not in the top ten! Those who haven't heard it, please give it a try.

Absolutely love Taylor Swift, and I'm a guy

Say Something - A Great Big World Say Something - A Great Big World Cover Art

Love it best song ever


Where do I start? The song itself is beautiful, the piano combining with the voices to make even the manliest of men cry. When I see the music video, I cry. The covers are good too, not going to lie. It's not sticking to the norm (singing about ex's) and is overall amazing. 8/8.

This is my favorite song well one of them it's just so... Magical!

La Vie En Rose - Jumaane Smith La Vie En Rose - Jumaane Smith Cover Art

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.

Jumaane and Jackie breath new life into this traditional post-war French number, even better in some ways than Edith Piaf's melancholy original.

Animals - Maroon 5 Animals - Maroon 5 Cover Art

This was one of the worst songs of the year. The only people that think the whole "hunting you down" thing is romantic are the same people that like Twilight. Watch Todd in the Shadow's Worst Hit Songs of 2014 list. It's on there.

Todd is not a reviewer. He hates Maroon 5 for the sake of hating them. - WonkeyDude98

The video may be bad but the song is very good with absolutely great vocals and lyrics. Adam Levine has a great voice and Maroon 5 got the beat! I have played this song at least 500 times since it was released and is still not old

Dude, his voice sounds like a high pitched robot goose using helium - Jeffvaderboi

This, I think needs to be much higher it's better than the crap that IS on there like Shake It Off or Problem

I'm in love with Adam Levine

The Contenders

Stay With Me - Sam Smith Stay With Me - Sam Smith Cover Art

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.

I love Sam Smith. His voice is so real!

It is an alright song. I mean I didn't really like the song at first glance and it is alright but not my fave

It is one the best song of Sam Smith. Should be in top 10 at-least

Problem - Ariana Grande Problem - Ariana Grande Cover Art

I'm sorry, but this song sucks. Your's truly was a better album than My everything. Sorry ):

That's true. I only liked "Why Try" from My Everything, when I liked most of the songs on Yours Truly.

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?

I respect that Ariana Grande has a great voice, however, even though Ariana Grande is beautiful in my opinion, I feel sorry for the fact that she is trying hard to look sexy in her music videos. (Beautiful and sexy have a different meaning)

Totally agreed... She is beautiful and has an amazing voice but the whole 'Like me 'cause I can be sexy' is just not working for her... She needs to sing songs which have substance in them...

Replacing Mariah Carey? No way. There will only ever be one Mariah Carey. This girls not bad, but this song is just boring and overplayed.

Break Free - Ariana Grande Break Free - Ariana Grande Cover Art

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 addicting it is better than blank space and I think this should be number 1.

Honestly, this is not her best song, but the music video and the song itself are very original and creative. It may be a bit overrated, but ariana does a nice job hitting all the high notes.

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

Can't Remember to Forget You - Shakira Can't Remember to Forget You - Shakira Cover Art

I have never heard the song but the cover is horrible

Rihanna and Shakira collaborate on this and they go together perfectly! The song is a nice mixture of Reggae, rock, and pop and it's SO GOOD. Everybody needs to check out this song if they already haven't

I really love this song!

I LOVE this song. Two of my favorite singers come together and make a song and it worked!

Dark Horse - Katy Perry Dark Horse - Katy Perry Cover Art

This song is a mess, even for someone as artificial and talentless as Katy Perry. Watch Todd in the Shadows review on it so you can see how terrible it actually is.

You could forgive the chorus but the RAP? God that was one of the worst verses I've ever heard. - Mourinho

Great song why has can't remember to forget you got 53 percent of the votes it is not the best of 2014

As a Katy Perry fan, I must confess that her most successful fits are not her best songs... But this one is very nice, even though, but does not compare to "Choose Your Battles" or "Double Rainbow", the best songs of Prism album by far...

This song is a famous in the world but has many other song famous song but the song dark horse top 10 and have a awarded, for me this it the best with me, not only this song with me and the best all song of Katy Perry and she is famous in the world and me

Fancy - Iggy Azalea Fancy - Iggy Azalea Cover Art

Worst song I've ever heard besides every other song that she made.

I hate this song but I can't stop listening to it please kill me, it's to catchy

I don't like this song but I wouldn't say that it's the worst song I've ever heard. I mean, take a chill pill. It's not completely intolerable or annoying. I just don't feel like hearing a song that's overplayed. And besides, why is everyone buzzing about Iggy? They act like they never heard of a female rapper before! Hello? Stop making Nicki Minaj feel bad!

It's Nikki Minaj, and she doesn't feel bad, look at her one of the most known and overrated people on Earth right now. - docreywashere

You HAVE gotta be kidding me Right?...

This is garbage. Iggy is basically a diet-Nicki Minaj except that she's white. Charli is the only thing that is actually decent and even she didn't put in much effort. 1/5

Maps - Maroon 5 Maps - Maroon 5 Cover Art

This amazing song should have been somewhere on the top... !

I'm going crazy about this song. This should be on number 1

I love this song, This should be on #12 or #1.

The best song from the album V

Come with Me Now - Kongos Come with Me Now - Kongos Cover Art

Yo I should be much higher

I don't know y this song isn't higher on the list. It's a great song and they deserve the credit.

Such a great song...

O don't why I haven't find them earlier...

A Sky Full of Stars - Coldplay A Sky Full of Stars - Coldplay Cover Art

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.

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

Underrated song. All these other songs need to step aside and show this song where first place is.

This definitely needs to be higher up this list. It's one of the best songs of 2015 besides Chandelier.

Made to Dream - Jackie Evancho Made to Dream - Jackie Evancho Cover Art

Very beautiful, very personal song from Jackie - with meaning for all of us.

Written for Jackie. On Jackie's awakening album. Will influence your thinking.

I looked up them album. She wrote none of the songs.

Team - Lorde Team - Lorde Cover Art

This song is amazing. Lorde is an incredible singer, I adore her.

This song will never get played out..

I have never seen a better atmosphere ever in music

I actually respect lorde, she's different voice wise. N this song is great

The Devil In I - Slipknot The Devil In I - Slipknot Cover Art

Hmm lets see One Direction, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, and IGGY AZALEA ahead of this Disasterpiece?! (pun intended) This song is one of the first songs Slipknot ever released in 6 years! They rose from the pit of a hiatus and we're still grieving for Paul and Joey left. So they came back to make one heck of an album dedicated to Paul and Joey.

This song is so good!
I can't believe this song isn't in the top 100 which is filled with crap which has been drowned in autotune. Apart from Linkin Park obviously because they are amazing!

That moment you find a song hardly anyone listens to these days! People really need to consider listening to something that's actually good. Not like Eminem or beyonce or whatever the hell people listen to nowadays. Maggot for life m/

I can't believe this wasn't on the list..

Empire - Shakira Empire - Shakira Cover Art

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

It's a great song I love it

Go Time - Jackie Evancho

Most versatile and beautiful voice of this generation!

A fun piece! Jackie sings anything well.

A real ear worm!


Negarane Mani - Morteza Pashaei Negarane Mani - Morteza Pashaei Cover Art

This song is amazing... It shows the feeling of the singer"MORTEZA PASHAEI "about God... you should listen to it... Everything about this sing is good... Good lyrics.. Good mix... AND THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS "THE SPECIAL VOICE OF MORTEZA PASHAEI "

It's not about god. Once morteza said that he sang it to her mother

The best morteza pashaii for every thing

He is so lovely and humble

The voice of feeling
