Top 25 Tracks of 2014: The Top Five

We've made it, through Christmas and through 20 of the best songs of 2014, but now for the final five.

In case you did miss anything over the past few days catch up here
Numbers 25 - 16
Numbers 15 - 6
And the ones that got away

So without further ado, let's get it started.

5. Rixton: Wait On Me
Justifying not sticking this at number one was really hard. The nice thing about Rixton is that even though they’re still lumped in the boyband category with the likes of The Vamps, their songs are actually good. Another one for the #PopPerfection list.


4. Architects: Naysayer
It's hard to believe that it's been almost a year since Architects unveiled 'Naysayer', the first single taken from their sixth album 'Lost Forever // Lost Together'. Not straying from what they do best, 'Naysayer' is metal/metalcore/(whatever genre it is, who cares) at its finest.

3. Kiesza: Hideaway
I think I first heard 'Hideaway' on a specialist show on Radio 1. I knew the song was great but didn't really expect it or Kiesza to cross over to the mainstream and produce one of the biggest singles of 2014. The video is also still insane, the final edit was the second take.


2. Bring Me The Horizon: Drown
It's been clear over their past couple of albums that Bring Me The Horizon have been developing their sound but I'm not sure any of us expected something like 'Drown'. Finishing 2014 headlining Wembley Arena and scoring their first UK Top 20 single with 'Drown' are some pretty incredible achievements for this metal five-piece from Sheffield.


1. Years & Years: Desire
Personal bias has played an extremely large part in Years & Years making it to the top spot of this list and you know what, I don't care one bit. Years & Years have by far been my favourite "new band" of 2014 and their latest single 'Desire' is nothing short of incredible.
