The Five Stars
Listed in order of acquisition!
Over my Head (Gabe Flaherty Remix) by The Fray
Doin’ It Right (Decadon Remix) by Daft Punk
Gold (Thomas Jack Radio Edit) by Gabriel Rios
Say What You Want by The Barenaked Ladies
Work This Body by WALK THE MOON
Take a Walk (A Capella) by Passion Pit
Amazon (Original Mix) by Gabe Flaherty

The five most beautiful/touching songs of the year:
Dare You to Move by The Vitamin String Quartet
Shenzou by Steven Price
Nessun Dorma sung by Pavarotti
The Gravel Road by James Newton Howard
Deliverance by Brian Tyler

The Overall Top Five
Work This Body by WALK THE MOON
I love everything about this song: tempo, length, lyrics, THE DRUMS, and especially the last like 15 seconds, when that extra layer of background lyrics (noises?) is added. This is tied with Gold as my favorite for the year, I’m pretty sure.

Gold (Thomas Jack Radio Edit) by Gabriel Rios
I really like the violin in this song (and the general chorus as well). Plus, the lyrics made me think of an interesting idea for a story, and any song that inspires me to write gets an A+ in my book.

Take a Walk (A Capella) by Passion Pit
This guy managed to take my second favorite Passion Pit song and perform it (in my opinion) better than Passion Pit. The first 25 seconds deserve a five-star on their own, holy freaking crapples. Beautiful.

Amazon (Original Mix) by Gabe Flaherty
So the dude who gets one of his remixes into my “Top Five” list every year (see the next song in this list for an example) made an original song, and it’s awesome. The chorus makes my toes tingle.

Over my Head (Gabe Flaherty Remix) by The Fray
FREAKING GABE FLAHERTY, MAN. This was like one of my first songs of the year and it still is one of the best ones. He gives a very different feel to this The Fray song, and I really like it. Again, the chorus is fantastic.

Now, pie charts!

The Year in Music

[Edit: Ugh, Office 2013. They fucked up a perfectly good pie chart is what they did. Look at it. It’s got bad formatting.]

In terms of play count, alternative, electronic, and pop were all pretty evenly split. Interesting.

Playcount by Genre

Onward to year seven!
