PeteHatesMusic’s Top Songs of 2015

Twitter: @PeteHatesMusic

As the year winds to an end, we beat Santa to the gift giving and present you our Top Songs of 2015 list. Like all lists, it’s subjective as hell, but objectively we are awesome, so maybe that makes the list somehow objective? Okay, maybe not in the least, but you read this website for a reason (or you accidentally stumbled upon it via a Google search for ‘midget strippers’), so we’ll assume you like what we’ve got to say.

Father John Misty

Based on that intro paragraph, we have a whole lot of nothing of value to say, so let’s get to it. Below are our favourite 20 songs of 2015, complete with a playlist for you to hear what we’re hearing. Check out songs by acts such as Foals, Father John Misty, Jamie xx, Grimes, and more.

TOMORROW– The top albums of the year, as decided by PeteHatesMusic. And then lots of beer, board games, turkey, sleep, maybe all at the same time?

Check out the Top Songs of 2015 below, and if you’re in the mood, revisit our lists from 2014, 2013, 2012, and 2011.

Honourable Mentions
Beck – Dreams
Beirut – No No No
Lana Del Rey – High By the Beach

Pete’s Top 10
10 – Purity Ring – Bodyache
9 – Django Django – Reflections
8 – Half Moon Run – Turn Your Love
7 – Hot Chip – Need You Now
6 – Tobias Jesso Jr – How Could You Babe
5 – Father John Misty – Chateau Lobby #4 (in C for Two Virgins)
4 – Godspeed You! Black Emperor – Piss Crowns are Trebled
3 – Jamie xx – I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times) ft. Young Thug, Popcaan
2 – Foals – Mountain at my Gates
1 – Grimes – REALiTi

(note that the Grimes track in the playlist is a demo she published earlier in the year, and the actual album version is a little more polished and has some minor differences)

So don’t look now, but Grimes has nabbed the top spot for the second year in a row. Who saw that coming?!

Let us know what your favourites were on Twitter @PeteHatesMusic or in the comments. Happy holidays, and if you see me in a pub with nothing but a Santa hat on, don’t tell Twitter.
