Top 25 Movie Songs of 2014

Begin Again had several great songs.

We're already over a month into 2015, and I haven't even posted my top 10 films list or the 2014 CinSpec Awards yet. Both should be up next week though, so here's a look at some of the year's offerings in film music. Look out for my scores list in the next day or two. Note: I would've included something from God Help the Girl, but those songs were released in 2009.

25. "Frank's Most Likeable Song Ever" from Frank


24. "So Now What" from Wish I Was Here


23. "Beating Heart" from Divergent


22. "Mercy Is" from Noah


21. "Tee Shirt" from The Fault in Our Stars


20. "Like A Fool" from Begin Again


19. "Split the Difference" from Boyhood


18. "Wish I Was Here" from Wish I Was Here
Listen here.

17. "No Fate Awaits Me" from The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby


16. "Private Property" from Beyond the Lights


15. "Land Ho!" from Land Ho!

14. "Tell Me If You Wanna Go Home" from Begin Again


13. "Sister Rust" from Lucy


12. "Not About Angels" from The Fault in Our Stars


11. "Yellow Flicker Beat" from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1


10. "It's On Again" from The Amazing Spider-Man 2


9. "All of the Stars" from The Fault in Our Stars


8. "A Step You Can't Take Back" from Begin Again

  2. Great picks! Love all the Begin Again tracks, one of the stand outs in the film is the soundtrack. I Love You All was also memorable, as well as the songs from The Fault in Our Stars.

    1. Thanks! :) Boom Clap has been one of my favorites since TFIOS came out, even if the song wasn't eligible at the Oscars.

  4. OMG! Everything is Awesome is outside your ballot?!?!?!

    All of the Stars is still my winner, with Mercy Is as a runner up. I almost want to say that I like Like a Fool better than Lost Stars, but I know it's just because I love that scene in the movie most of all.

    This year was so rich with songs and scores, which is an oddity in itself.

    1. Sadly, yes. :( "America For Me" bumped it out recently. Otherwise, it would've been my #5. At least The LEGO Movie will get a win in Animated Film. :/

      How far down is Everything is Awesome for you? #3? #4? Just wondering if it could potentially fall out of your lineup too.

      Yeah, there are songs and scores I snub that would've been IN in almost any other year. Like, I could easily nominate my top 10 songs this year.

  5. So glad to see Lost Stars on the top spot! It's genuinely the best movie song I've heard in years

  6. Nice choices, but this list needs Batman's Song (Untitled Self-Portrait). I love that even more than Everything is Awesome.

    1. Thanks. Ha, I forgot about that one.

  7. Oooh, I LOVE all the three songs from BEGIN AGAIN, esp 'Like A Fool'! As for Beyond the Lights, my fave is Blackbird. I'm gutted I didn't include 'No Fate Awaits Me' from The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, such a gorgeous and melancholic song. Fantastic list here Josh!

    1. Thanks Ruth! I like Blackbird too. So many great songs from last year!

  8. Begin Again and TFIOS both had excellent soundtracks! I like Keira's stripped down version of "Lost Stars" better though.

    1. I prefer Levine's soaring take on the ballad, but I love that Keira's version feels like a more intimate song. I like both versions.

  9. Great list, loved to see Frank's "I Love You All" in it. I swear that music is catchy.
