Here are my personal favorite songs of 2014 in an easy listening playlist. It will take you on a 90 minute journey if you let it.

For those that want to know, my favorite song of last year was Sturgill Simpson’s “Turtles All The Way Down.” The metaphysical, yet utterly real and true lyrical sentiment over the soulful “In The Ghetto” like arrangement are just too much. I’m tearing up now even as I write.

Happy listening, folks!
