#10 Glory, Common & John Legend
From Vampire Weekend's masterpiece album...
#9 Step, Vampire Weekend.
From the marvelous Glen Hansard...love this guy....
#8 Her Mercy
#7 From Eden, Hozier
I love everything about this song and its stunning video. Guaranteed to make you feel better about the world for a few minutes at least!
#6 Sunday Candy, Chance the Rapper & Donnie Trumpet & the Social Experiment
Never was really fan of these guys, but this is a strikingly powerful and moving meditation on death.
#5 Brendan's Death Song, Red Hot Chili Peppers
This song just kicks ass...from the great folks of Alabama Shakes...
#4 Hold On, Alabama Shakes
A song of great power, reflection and sadness.
#3 Afterlife, Arcade Fire
A devastating, disturbing and exceptionally powerful song.
#2 The Body Electric, Hurray for the Riff Raff
What can you say about this one? It is like 3 songs in 1, it is intense and wild, a genuine work of art.
Absolutely love everything about it. Just amazing.
#1 Q.U.E.E.N. feat. Erykah Badu, Janelle Monáe
