2014 IN 50 SONGS

The end of 2014 is approaching. And, as it happened on the last days of 2013, it's time for our review of the best we've listened throughout the year. Sounds European! looked back on the songs which were published here during this period – more than 1200 – and selected the 50 best ones (in the editors' opinions). Until December 31st, this top 50 will remember some of the coolest artists and tracks which were presented during the year.

When we first listened to "Sunshine", by Young Kato, we were extremely impressed with the perfect mix of unique instrumentals and voice work, wrapped in a very catchy and effective melody. Months have passed, and the admiration remains the same. We still love it to bits: it is, without a doubt, Sounds European!'s song of the year.
