Here on the Jet Fuel Jukebox, we’re ringing in the New Year with lists! Below you can explore an expansive record of our favorite songs of the year, before coming back tomorrow to read all about our respective Top 10 Albums of 2017, which Jake and I have absolutely pored over.
And while the albums list will be exactly what you expect if you’ve read our previous entries, we’ve actually done things a bit differently for the songs list this year. In year’s past, Jake and I would simply choose our own 25 favorite songs and slap them together into one fine playlist with no rhyme or reason as to where the tracks landed. It worked, but missing from it was a cohesion of both our musical tastes.
It’s my favorite time of the year! End-of-the-year lists time! Whether it’s for movies, books, video games, or albums, you’ll likely run into a bunch of lists from every publication under the sun chronicling their favorites from the past 365 days. We here at the Jet Fuel Review Blog will have our own fair share of end-of-the-year lists to share with you as well, with this first post dedicated to mine and our resident music blogger’s personal top 50 songs of 2015.
For this list, Jake and I began in the mindset of creating a list of our respective top ten songs. Deciding on only ten songs from a year with plenty of amazing tracks proved too difficult, so we bumped it up to 25 favorite tracks each. Keep in mind there is no actual ranking to the songs in this list, it’s just our favorite 50 songs from 2015.
Before you go onto read and/or listen to our list of favorite songs, know that we will have a much more detailed post coming tomorrow regarding mine and Jake’s respective top 10 albums of 2015, so be on the lookout for that one!
