Just as with our Best Albums of 2014 list, arriving at a general consensus for the Best Songs of 2014 proved an entertaining challenge. A whopping 301 songs got votes this year from our writers. To whittle that down to 50, we tallied the ballots and limited this list to one song per artist. And as with our Albums list, we hope this will be a jumping-off point, a way to highlight some of our favorites while sparking a conversation, so be sure to let us know which of your top tunes we missed in the comments section below.
Without further ado, we give you the Best Songs of 2014.
