Strong showing from movie tunes this year. And man, I just love it when those music-makers just jam out and go for it.

1. The Weeknd, “Sacrifice”: Everything you need to know about The Weeknd is in this song.
2. Yeah Yeah Yeahs, “Burning”: Still hot as ever! Hotter than we ever thought possible!
3. Bob Moses, “Love Brand New”: Like a midnight cruise through a psychedelic highway.
4. Regina Spektor, “Up the Mountain”: For some reason, this song makes me want to go outside and sing to a bunch of rabbits and other woodland creatures and get them all choreographed. Does that make sense?
5. King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, “The Dripping Tap”: Our generation’s “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida.”
6. Ellie Goulding ft. Big Sean, “Easy Lover”: I feel I’m struck by lightning multiple times while listening to this song.
7. Vedala Hemachandra, “Dosti”: A lifetime’s worth of everything.
8. Lizzo, “2 Be Loved (Am I Ready)”: I want to take a bite.
9. Tove Lo, “No One Dies From Love”: Pulling at my electric heartstrings.
10. Lizzo, “About Damn Time”: We might ALL be better. Nay! We ARE all better.
11. “Weird Al” Yankovic, “Now You Know”: One for the history books.
12. M. M. Keeravani and Chandrabose ft. Rahul Sipligunj and Kaala Bhairava, “Naatu Naatu”: The only reason that suspenders exist.
13. Steve Lacy, “Bad Habit”: How can it be bad when it feels so good?, as the old saying goes.
14. Tove Lo, “2 Die 4”: Butter me up!
15. Beyoncé, “Break My Soul”: Perfect soundtrack for doing acrobatics around deadly lasers.
16. The Black Keys, “Wild Child”: Park it in the garage and rock out.
