The Gibby Fifty: 50 Favorite Songs of 2015

After days and days of words, paragraphs, and annoyingly rogue YouTube formats, we’re taking it easy today. Here’s a list of my favorite 50 songs of the year; no tricks, no gimmicks. Per usual, the “One per main artist” rule applies, and if it made the Best Hits list, I DQ’d it from here. Most of these are singles, except when I opted for an album track because everybody knows and loves the singles (hence why “Pin” made it for Grimes over “Kill V. Maim”).

Spotify link is at the bottom, list is alphabetical (all the “The” bands are in T). Enjoy!
