2014 -- 2013 -- 2012


  1. Thanks for the list! Now I'm updated with modern songs :D

  2. I really love music, and loved this summary. What songs do you really like from the list? I listen to everything, and also love to sing!

  3. Wow, I love music but my playlist is so outdated. I barely know half of these songs! I would love to check them out, especially the ones by the artists that I've never heard of before.

  4. This comment has been removed by the author.

  5. I love how I know half of the songs in the list. I'm not really a music fan, but at least I'm still hip!

  6. I'm glad that despite the state of pop songs these days, which I don't really like (bouncy, noisy, loud, too sexual), I still recognize some which are good. Thanks for the list! Perhaps I'd find more in the list which I'd like. Will check them out.

  7. I don't think that i can recognise most of these songs but some of them are really cool number.

  8. Pretty cool playlist. I always check out Billboard's website to see what are the top songs. Glad that you shared their 2015 list. But I don't think Uptown Funk should be number, coz my number 1 song for 2015 is Chandelier.:)

  9. Some of the songs here are on top of my playlist. They really deserve to be in the billboard top 100.

  10. Quite a list and happy to see quite a few Taylor Swift in this!!!

  11. Funny that as I was going through the list, I could only point out a few familiar ones but when I checked some of the songs, I knew them by tune but I didn't know those were their titles. Thanks for the list, now I can match the melody with the title. And the artist as well.

  12. A lot of the songs are ones that I had on repeat. I loved Cheerleader and still do. Some of them were hits from the summer and I remember singing them when we did our summer road trip.

  13. Thanks for he list. I would definitely add a few to my playlist.

  14. These are definitely songs I've heard about a hundred times because they're so famous and catchy! My favorite is Charlie Puth! :D

  15. I appreciate your efforts on this post ofr refreshing my memories back. I thought Wizkid song - Ojuelegba was part of this list. Well, its all good still!!

  16. Yay! I can make a playlist on Spotify with this list! Thank you!

  17. Haha, I've only heard 1 song out of all the youtube videos you've posted! That's Ed Sheeren's Photograph! Because I learnt a dance from that song!

  18. I really need to listen to more music because I don't know half of these songs!! I do like some of The Weeknd's songs though, so glad he made the list!

  19. i am not surprised Bruno Mars topped it all. that guy is just simply awesome and genius

  20. great! now i know songs to add on my playlist.. thanks for sharing these! :)

  21. I love these selections and tops. It's always nice to have these tops (I used to collect them :D) to be sure to remember some of the great songs of a year - a decade, etc. I did find numerous songs I loved hearing in 2015 :) And now I'm in the mood for some music ;)

  22. Wow thanks for sharing the top 100 songs for 2015. Yes lots of it are my favourite songs too.

  23. This is great you all have my fave songs from Demi Lovato! I love her songs, and even my tweens love it too.
