7. “My Friend Has A Swimming Pool”MAUSI
6. “Say Something”Karen Harding

5. “Rude (Zedd Remix)”Magic!
      I said this back in August and it still rings true today; Zedd is a “drop
      everything you’re doing and listen” type artist. It’s no wonder this marks his
      second appearance on the list. And the hordes of festival goers this summer
      know what I’m getting at too, as they were fortunate enough to hear the 25
      year old’s revamp of Canadian sensation Magic!’s “Rude” in all its anthemic       glory. So please treat your ears one more time:

4.“Stay In Love”Plastic Plates ft. Sam Sparro
      Released way back in February, “Stay In Love” by Felix Bloxsom aka Plastic
      Plates is a chilled viber featuring a relaxed groove and the dulcet tones
      of childhood friend Sam Sparro.

3. “Fancy”Iggy Azalea ft. Charli XCX
      Recent controversy aside, Iggy Azalea had a helluva year. Her debut album
      The New Classic topped charts internationally and she’s been
      heralded as many’s next hip-hop gamechanger. And with the release of
      “Fancy,” any debate was short-lived. Featuring Charli XCX on the catchy
      as fuuuuck hook, the Australian MC drops an audacious flow reminding
      us all why she’s the next great musical act.

2. “Changing Me”Bobby Green ft. Sean Michael Murray
      I went back and forth with this electro-gem. It definitely has all
      the makings for my top choice, an uptempo, party starting beat and
      silky smooth vocals, but it lacks that je nais sais quoi or “Jenna
      said what?” for the Sonic heads out there.

      Still, this would be my number 1 any other year if it weren’t for…

1. “Fiona Coyne”SAINT PEPSI
      My unofficial “Song of the Summer” and now my “Song of the Year,”
      SAINT PEPSI’s “Fiona Coyne” grabbed hold of me on first listen and
      never let go. Named after Degrassi’s favorite lesbian, this bubbly
      pop dazzler is the perfect combination of top notch digital production
      and sheer fun. If this didn’t put a little pep in your getdown
      or bring a smile to your face I don’t know if I want you reading this
      blog anymore! Just kidding, I need the hits. As a bonus, check out his
      own rework of Magic!’s “Rude,” released justlast night.
