Digital High’s Top 20 Tunes Of 2014 [15 – 11]

DH’s Top 20 Of 2014 [20-16]:
20. “The One”The Knocks ft. Sneaky Sound System
19. “Self Control”Kate Boy
18. “Best Friend”Foster The People
17. “Never Say Never”Basement Jaxx ft. ETML
16. “Summer”Calvin Harris

15. “Every Little Thing”Röyksopp & Robyn

      Two electric and visionary forces came together this year and delivered
      a first round knockout with their EP Do It Again. Norwegian duo
      Röyksopp and Swedish powerhouse Robyn wowed in Spring 2014 with
      their five track synthpop adventure, led by single “Do It Again.” But it’s
      the unofficial single “Every Little Thing,” a downtempo,chill-groover,
      that’s earned the number 15 spot.

14. “Don’t”Ed Sheeran
      Checking in at 14? One of the best score-settling cuts in a long time,
      “Don’t.” I mean I get why Ellie would bang out Niall [who wouldn’t?]
      but she did her supposed boyfriend dirty. Not cool! Warining to all;
      don’t cross Ed Sheeran or you’ll forever be etched in digital stone.

13. “Change Your Ticket”One Direction
      Speaking of the boyband heartthrob…he and his fellow mates offered
      up a clever little pop track that would make any alt-rock band from
      Manchester proud. Bearing a similar riff to The 1975’s “Girls,”
      “Change Your Ticket” is a terrifically enjoyable breath of alt-pop fresh
      air that has held strong in my heavy rotation playlist for the past few
      months and will likely hold deep into 2015.

12. “Meltdown”Stromae ft. Lorde, Pusha T, Q-Tip, & HAIM
      The freshest entry on this year’s list is a magnificent group effort off
      of the Lorde constructed The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 soundtrack.
      Featuring production from world-class beatmaker Stromae, and equally
      impressive contribution from Lorde, Pusha T, Q-Tip, and HAIM, “Meltdown” is
      an ensemble for the ages.

11. “Unmissable”Gorgon City ft. Zak Abel
      I don’t know what took me so long, but I finally made House music a
      must-listen to this year.Championed by acts like Disclosure and Gorgon City,
      the deep and pulsating rhythms just took hold and wouldn’t let go. So it’s
      the latter duo that have positioned themselves at number 11, with their
      underratedmid-tempo single “Unmissable.” Supported by the captivating
      vocals of Zak Abel, it’s a dark, slick club-ready cut your ears just can’t shake.
