While no year-end list can be truly objective , I actually tried pretty hard to be with this list. I follow these genres of music closely — keeping an eye on the charts, radio airplay, Youtube video views, what the word is around the web, etc. I compiled and ranked these songs with the intent of publishing the best year-end list for rock, alternative and indie music genres anywhere on the web.
Young The Giant above is at 1. The rest of the chart can be found below. By Rick Hiduk. The radio station provided most of the resources that would help me put Alternative Music then still often called Progressive into a working perspective. I scanned the College Media Journal CMJ charts every month and spent money that could have been spent elsewhere on albums and singles to complement what little we received from record companies for free. I was a legend in my own mind, and the show had a good three-year run while I served the radio station as Music Director. In this way, I was able to organize progressive pop, dance, and rock music on a weekly Top I distributed printed copies to friends and family members who shared similar tastes or not. I read with interest a posting on Facebook by Mike Cahill, a guitarist in the local band Vegas Arcade. The band plays primarily alternative music and prefers the heavier, edgier songs, from what Mike has related to me.
Sign In. Alternative Hits: Apple Music Alternative. Take Me to Church. Hozier Bonus Track Version. I Bet My Life.
A lot of good music came out this year. Remember this is just my personal opinion. Jack White is a versatile musical genius. It was a nice change to hear and the female vocals are absolutely beautiful. This is a great summer tune. It was very catchy and made you want to dance. This song just so happens to be the single off the album. The reason why I like this song so much is because it is basically 3 songs in one. There are 3 parts to the song that are only separated by a few seconds It tells a story. The first part if very upbeat and easy to dance to whereas the second part is very toned down and mellow, then the third part is the perfect right in between.
