2015 was chock-full of good music! As the year comes to a close, we wanted to compile a list of some of favorite songs from the past 12 months.
1._ Uptown Funk
Love it or love to hate it, you probably know at least some of the words to this song from Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars.
We're going from uptown to downtown on this list! We love this beat and catchy lyrics from Macklamore and Ryan Lewis, and don't even mind when it gets stuck in our head for days.
3. Shut Up and Dance
While we don't recommend walking up to a stranger and leading with "shut up and dance with me," somehow, Walk the Moon makes it seem like the best possible thing we could do.
4. Love Me Like You Do
It's possible that 2015 was Ellie Goulding's year. She came out with some really good songs and gained a great following. We'll just keep on pretending she's singing this song to us, her lowly fans.
5. Elastic Heart
The popularity of this song could in part be because of Shia LeBouf appearing in the video, we love it regardless. Another win for Sia.
6._ Thinking Out Loud
What would this list be without Ed Sheeran? Being in the wedding business, we have certainly played our fair share of this song and there's no doubt why. It pulls at heartstrings and is full of lyrics that most anyone could identify with.
7. Marvin Gaye
Okay, we're not afraid to admit how much we love this collaboration with Charlie Puth and Meghan Trainor. While the jury is still out on whether or not this is appropriate wedding music, we think you should go for it (as long as grandma has a sense of humor!).
8. How Deep Is Your Love
This great song by Calvin Harris & Disciples is the perfect tune to get you dancing, or at last tapping your thumbs on the steering wheel. Another feel-good beat by Calvin. Would you expect anything less?
How could a song done by Rihanna, Kanye, AND Paul not make our list!? It would be a travesty. This goes in the books as one of the best collaborations of all time.
It only makes sense to round out this list with one of the greatest comebacks and the song that was met with the greatest amount of anticipation in our lifetime. Adele certainly did not disappoint when she jumped back onto the scene after taking some time off for medical reasons. Helllllo, Adele.
