80. “Me U & Hennessy” ft. Lil Wayne
First of all, the ampersand in the title looks really weird, at least on the Pitchfork website, so I don’t know what’s up with that. Also, teh way she says it in the song is “me, Hennessy, and you,” so there’s that also. Everything about this seems really bad, like it’s in the realm of Drake, Nicky Minaj, autotune, etc. A lot of people probably think this song is sexy. Lil Wayne says he doesn’t drink in the song, is that true?
79. “Twist My Fingaz” by YG
I probably come of as “hating rap” from this list so far, but I like a lot of rap music. The problem with the rap songs on this list is that they all suck. This one is pretty good though, it reminds me of The Chronic or some other 90’s gangster rap, which is good. Decent track, would not be embarrassed to be caught listening to this.
78. “Whip It (Remix)” by ILoveMakonnen ft. Migos
This is really bad. It’s not even a remix of the Devo song.
77. “Downtown” by Majical Cloudz
This is a song to “zone out” to and it’s kind of boring and I doubt I’d ever be listing it as the 77th best song to come out in any given year, but it sounds great after hearing ILoveMakonnen and Migos do that piece of shit Whip It song I just heard.
76. “Standard” by Empress Of
I don’t have much to say about this song, so let’s turn to Jes Skolnik of Pitchfork. “Instead of preaching, Rodriguez’s empathy resonates on a seriously human scale.” according to Jes. I don’t know. The song ended and the next one on the album started playing, and I like that one better.
75. “High by the Beach” by Lana Del Ray
I think I have heard this song. I don’t remember liking it. But I also don’t remember disliking it. Nah I definitely disliked it. I wonder why she wants to get high “by” the beach instead of just on the beach. I feel like rich, bitchy white girls would like this song.
74. “(At Your Best) You Are Love” by Frank Ocean
This is a cover but I don’t think I’ve heard the original(s). Very high voice. Not my kind of song but I don’t dislike it.
73. “Foreclosures” by Rick Ross
Throwaway rap song. Seems good to hear a rapper rap about twitter though.
72. “Ryderz” by Hudson Mohawke
Yeah, I didn’t have much hope for “Ryderz” by Hudson Mohawke and I forgot I was listening to it as I was doing laundry.
71. “The Night Josh Tillman Came to Our Apartment” by Father John Misty
This is tight. Sounds like Christmas music kind of. The lyrics sound like something I could make sense of if I listened a few times. Would recommend this song.
70. “Dubby” by DJ Rashad/DJ Spinn ft. Danny Brown
First let me say that I’m very confused about who the artist of this song is. Anyway, I guess this “beat” is sposto be like dubstep but not completely, so it is just “dubby” or as I like to call it, “dubbish” or “dubya.” This song started off cool but got really bad and started shaking my walls.
69. “Fourth of July” by Sufjan Stevens
Alright, finally a song I know. I listened to this album a lot this year, “Carrie and Lowell.” It became one of my favorite albums ever. This song though is very powerful and emotional, but not really enjoyable to listen to. I’m not mad, I just liked most of the other songs on the album more, that’s all.
68. “Lionsong” by Björk
This song went on really long. Wasn’t sure if another song on the album started playing. It sounds insane.
67. “This Could Be Us” by Rae Sremmurd
Oh, this is where that “this could be us but u playin” meme comes from. Got it.
66. “Dumb” by Jazmine Sullivan ft. Meek Mill
Very boring, I might even go as far as to say it was dumb
65. “Living My Life” by Deerhunter
Living my life. Something people in 2015 love to do. This song just kinda drifts along for a while doing the same thing over and over again. Maybe it “parallels” life or something. Whatever.
64. “Angels” by Chance the Rapper ft. Saba
This guy’s okay. He’s got a cool voice or flow or whatever. Is he the same guy who was in Community, or is that somebody else. Big fan of the steel drum making an appearance in the song.
63. “Shadow” by Chromatics
Oh, I kind of like this band.
62. “Sandra’s Smile” by Blood Orange
I think this is the only song that Dev Hynes (Blood Orange) put out this year. It’s kinda crazy, this guy’s music is usually really layered and cryptic but still really catchy. It’s not really a secret though that this one is about the death of Sandra Bland, a woman who hung herself in a jail cell after she was pulled over for a traffic violation. Dev Hynes said that he gave the song its title because he googled pictures of her and thought she had a crazy smile. Sick dance moves too
61. “G.L.O.S.S.” – We’re from the Future” by G.L.O.S.S.
Girls living outside society’s shit, lol. This song is awesome. I don’t even know if it’s girls singing, but they seem very PRO-FEMINIST. roar.
