Fifty Songs That Shaped My Year

SPRINGTIME-2

As we all know, music is a wonderful thing that not only brings people together, but becomes the soundtracks to our lives. I decided to come up with a list of songs that I found myself personally inspired by that came out in 2015. Some are cultural phenomenons (“Hotline Bling,” “Hello,” and “Sorry”), some are songs that I personally think were beneficial to society (“Til It Happens to You,” “Alright,” “Girls Like Girls”), and a number that proved that women are a force to be reckoned with in the music industry (“Here,” “Love Myself,” “Can’t Pin Me Down”).

All in all, these were the songs that shaped my year, for better or for worse.

I attempted to order these songs in order of release by month.
