Welcome to our half-year round-up of the best (read: our favorite) songs the year. We spend all year long tracking down our favorites and we thought it would be useful to clearly outline the songs we’ve enjoyed the most in 2014. As any music fan knows, one’s favorite song can change from day to day, sometimes multiple times a day, but we put some considerable effort into taking an accurate snapshot of our jams of the first six months of the year.

The songs which moved our feet, our minds and our hearts are represented below in a neat ordered list complete with audio/video streams. If you’d like take our list in playlist form, you can do so by subscribing to our Rdio and Spotify offerings. These playlists are updated frequently throughout the year and often exceed our arbitrary limit of fifty songs. Get started below:
