Noisey The 50 Best Songs of 2015



Info: "What determines a good song in 2015? Does it simply have to be well written? Does it get stuck in your head? Does Drake have to sing it? Well, there’s no real answer to this question. Like all music, it’s just a feeling. When you hear a good song, you just kind of… know". On Noisey each song comes with a short review.

Fact The 50 Best Tracks of 2015


Info: "... it’s infinitely tougher to compare and contrast three-minute moments than 10+ track stories, but it’s notable that 2015’s list features more self-released efforts than any previous year. The role of the traditional label is far from obsolete, but there are more people becoming stars on their own terms than ever, and that, at least, is a positive we can take from 2015".

Radio1 - The 100 Greatest Belgian Songs of All Time (2006-2014)


Info: 100 op 1 - De Beste Belgen is a radio show broadcast by Belgian Radio 1 that every year asks its listeners to vote their favorite all-time songs by Belgian artists. I discovered it in 2010, when I spotified the results of the most recent survey. Now, instead of refreshing that playlist, I did something different: I looked for all the 100 op 1 yearly charts available online and I made a spreadsheet, assigning 100 points to the #1, 99 points to the #2, etc. etc. The result is a kind of an aggregated Top 100, collected in this Spotify playlist, that includes some artists internationally known (Brel, dEUS, Hooverphonic...) and many others that I guess are more local favorites. As of August 2015, the chart is based on the 2006, 2009, 2012, 2013 and 2014 charts. The show started in 2002 and if anyone knows where to find the other Top100s, I will be very happy to add the data and to update the playlist.

Pitchfork The 200 Best Songs of the 1980s


Info: "A great deal of today's music looks to the '80s for inspiration, but there are so many different ideas of what '80s as a descriptor can mean. Here we return to the source material". Pitchfork polled its staff and contributing writers for their favorite songs of the decade and it tabulated them in a Top200 chart. Complete list is available online, with a review of each song and some related tracks for further explanation. As of August 2015 twelve songs are missing from Spotify, whereof six are by Prince, who in summer 2015 removed his entire catalogue from the service.
