My Top 50 tracks of 2015

Here we go again. My top 50 for 2015. These songs are not always "officially" released in 2015... they are simply songs that I personally discovered in 2015. For example, number 50 on this list, "Do Your Thing" is an old song that I heard watching the documentary "Rubble Kings" on Netflix. The movie is about the street gang scene in 1970's New York City and the subsequent birth of Hip Hop. Song #38 "Wrench and Numbers" is a drum solo track that I heard in FARGO (The F/X Series) Season 1. I love it.

So there is some Hip Hop in there, some Mainstream Pop, some Downtempo Electronic, Folk/Americana, some R&B... and some miscellaneous. These are all songs that shaped my year... songs that I found to offer some sort of comfort or inspiration... or songs that are just the jam... maybe some shit I simply HAD to Shazam.
