We at Janky Smooth commend all the offline and online publications that take the time to find the top 10 or 100 or 1000 songs of 2014. It’s quite the undertaking and 2014 was a GREAT year for songs. To us, the mark of greatness is not the ability to write one song that people can’t get out of their heads but rather the rare talent it takes to produce a compilation of related art that is cohesive and extraordinary.
