THE WOOF 200 FOR 2014 – Part Two: Honorable Mentions


As I stated in the intro, even though I’m getting ready to post a top 200 songs, there were well over 250 in the running at one point and I’m sure I could have pushed onto 300 with little or no effort. Which means there are plenty of songs that I *wanted* to highlight, but won’t get around to. So for the sake of completeness (and to pad this whole process out just THAT much more), here they are, all the songs that I had percolating in my musical brew before ultimately deciding they weren’t quite top 200 material.

And with that we’re finally ready for the actual top 200. For what it’s worth, I have tried to limit my choices to songs that were officially released in 2014. Usually that means that the album they were originally on was released this year, avoiding songs from 2013 albums that got a single/video release sometime in the past 12 months. I occasionally make an exception to that rule when it comes to pop songs, since I don’t really listen to those albums and would only have been exposed to the single in the year it came out. There’s also a few tracks on the list which are on albums that don’t come out until sometime in 2015, but since the advance single hit early enough in 2014 I managed to really absorb it early. I break my own rules. So be it.
