The 40 Best Songs of 2015

The 40 Best Songs of 2015

There’s still two weeks to go, but we figured we’d throw together a list
of our favorite tracks o’ 2015 to potentially give you a few additions
to your holiday soundtrack (if you want your holidays to sound like a
mix of a gay bar and angsty teenager’s bedroom). Please list your
favorites in the comments… we’d love a few new additions ourselves. And yes, over a third of this list are Canadians and most of /bent is written by Canadians so maybe there was a bias. But it’s too late now to say sorry.
