Welcome back to our Best of 2015 series and in this post we will be looking at some of the best songs of 2015!
Obviously this list is going to annoy a lot of people as I am not representative of everyone in the entire world and the selections found in this list are going to be very much my own and thus what I consider the best of 2015. Feel free to disagree with me in the comments!
The only real ground rule I have is that there can only be a limit of three songs per artist and the song must have been released either as a single this year or on an album this year.
This list won’t be ranked as I had a hard enough time picking my votes for the Hottest 100. It will also not have any descriptions about each song as I feel I will be writing a lot of similar stuff throughout the list and so to spare you from reading it, I am just going to list the songs. Songs that made my Hottest 100 vote will also be bolded.
So without any further ado, here is what we here at BWM think were the best 30 songs of 2015!
