Along with the calendar I have been doing for the past few years, another yearly adventure is my playlist for the year. At the beginning of the year I create a playlist in my itunes for that year and as the year goes on I add the songs that really grab me throughout that 12 month period. The danger with listening to it too much through the year is that you can get a bit sick of the early songs but it’s a great reminder of the songs you loved as the year went by.

So here is what made me dance and sing in 2014. Yes, I know my tastes are very mainstream and top 40.
