Favorite Songs of 2015

It’s difficult to distinguish one year as having the best music. Every year I’m impressed with the amount of catchy tunes. Concert highlights included my first time seeing Florence + the Machine and Joywave. Bonus points if you can list which 80s new wave synthpop group’s song was sampled in Clairity’s song "Velcro." I listed out songs below the Spotify playlist to hear on YouTube or search for in your streaming service of choice. Happy listening!
