10 Best Songs of 2015

Dec 29th 2015 | entertainment | music | Written by Will Jamieson

2015 has been an incredible year in the music industry; Adele popped up to say Hello, Drizzy broke the Internet with his dodgy dance moves, and everyone became a Belieber! Here is our round-up of the top tracks of the year:

10) Sia - Elastic Heart

Kicking off the top 10, it's Sia with her incredible track, Elastic Heart. The video is definitely worth a watch as well. Mini Sia and Shia Labeouf in a birdcage. Who doesn't want to watch that?


9) Mark Ronson - Uptown Funk

The perfect example of overkill. We listened to this song so much this year, we are all sick of it! When it first hit the scene, it was fresh and original. Now it's just overplayed. That doesn't mean it's not one of the songs of the year!

8) Years & Years - King

This was our first introduction to Years & Years and boy did they make an impression, with their track "King" ruling supreme in 2015.

7) Justin Bieber - What Do You Mean

If you weren't a fan of Justin Bieber you probably are now. He has completely reinvented himself this year.

6) Wiz Khalifa feat. Charlie Puth - See You Again

The Fast & Furious 7 ballad was written in tribute to late actor Paul Walker and had us all shedding tears.

5) Fleur East - Sax

Proof that not every product of the X Factor is rubbish. Fleur East joined the likes of Olly Murs, One Direction, Little Mix and Leona Lewis as one of the better acts to rise from the ITV talent show.

4) The Weeknd - Can't Feel My Face

The Weeknd has been around for a while but 2015 marked his crossover into mainstream pop, starting with his 50 Shades of Grey soundtrack "Earned It" and finishing with his hit "Can't Feel My Face" 

3) Drake - Hotline Bling

The music video that spawned a thousand memes and broke the internet. This song came out of nowhere and had everyone busting those moves! 

2) Justin Bieber - Sorry

We're all Beliebers now! And no we're not "Sorry" about it! 

1) Adele - Hello

And at number 1, it's.....Hello! It's Me. Adele. I'm back. And I'm taking the world by storm! 

Well there you have it! Our Top 10 tracks of the year! Special mentions go to Nick Jonas - JealousKygo - FirestoneJames Bay - Hold Back The RiverEd Sheeran - Thinking Out Loud & Omi - Cheerleader all of which just missed out! Here's to 2016!

Once again I really want to thank you for how helpful you have been and how quick you have been in getting back to me - Charlotte
