For the fifth straight year, I am chronicling the songs that I’ve played the most over the past year.  This is NOT a list of the most popular tracks in the world, in America or even in my town.  These are the tracks that I played the most in 2014.

This is the first year since I started reporting plays that neither Train nor P!nk made it into the list.
