The Overall Top Five
Magic by Coldplay
It should be clear to anyone who reads these yearly reviews that I’m a pretty big Coldplay fan. Magic is, well…magic, haha. I love the tempo of this song and of course the general sound as well. It’s just so chill and easy to listen to.

Suit & Tie (Oliver Nelson Remix) by Justin Timberlake
This remix is vastly better than the original song. If you kind of like the original but aren’t too big of a fan of it, I’d recommend checking this out, especially if you like more of an electronic feel to your music.

Jealous (I Ain’t With It) by Chromeo
I love the kind of old school feel of this song. It’s also got a nice bass line.

I Won’t Let You Down by OK Go
I’m actually not really sure why I like this song. I mean, it’s a good song in general, but I’m not sure why I like it more than others. I’m listening to it now and am noticing that it’s got an almost disco-esque feel to it, so maybe that’s it.

O (Fly On) by Coldplay
This is a BEAUTIFUL song. It’s actually quite haunting if you listen to it in the right mood. I can’t recall when exactly it was, but remember awhile back I mentioned that I’d like this song played at my funeral/pseudo-funeral/whatever people end up doing when I die? Yeah, that’s still what I want.
(And then scatter some of my ashes over Leibniz’ grave…or at least sprinkle a little in the air close by if you’re not allowed to dump ‘em.)

Now, the obligatory pie charts:



This was a very pop-heavy year, haha.

Onward to year six!
