I always like to do a bit of a “year in review” towards the end of every year.

This year, I thought that, in addition to that, I would give a countdown of my favorite songs from 2014.

It’s inevitable that, as the year goes on, I end up with a “new favorite song” about once every six weeks.

That doesn’t mean I stopped loving the song that I named my favorite previously. It just gets added to my list of favorite songs of the year.

Coming in at No. 1 this year is a song that I believe I discovered thanks to a commercial that came on while watching football. No joke. I just HAD to find out what that haunting song was, and it turns out it was Hozier's "Take Me To Church,"
