Of all the annual Best Of Lists, top tracks is the most fun to compile. You’ll find my 100 favourite songs of the year below and playlists come in three flavours: Youtube, Spotify and Soundcloud. Capping this at 100 was hard but then that’s what the blog is for. Check out my albums, remixes, Irish releases and videos of the year. Readers’ Poll results coming next week…
