It’s no secret that 2014 wasn’t the strongest year in music, it was certainly no 2012, but I still managed to put a list of great songs together that everyone should listen to before this year comes to a close.  They range from all the way back in January to some that just came out this past week (new Modest Mouse, hell yeah!).  There’s a song for everyone on this list so do a little digging and find the ones that suit your musical tastes. Click play below to listen to all of the songs.
