best of 2014 :: Favorite Songs

Friday, December 26th, 2014

Here it is, GIMME TINNITUS’ favorite songs from 2014. What follows is a compilation of all the tracks that have been stuck in my head throughout this last year. Make sure you scroll through the whole list, perhaps there is something down there that you missed?

You can play individual tracks using the tiny play buttons next to each mp3 link, OR you can stream all the songs with mp3 links on this page using the streampad player at the bottom of the page, OR you can just download any or all of the tracks at your leisure and play them using a digital media player of your choice. If there is no play button, click the link to stream the song via bandcamp/soundcloud/youtube.

Did I miss something totally awesome? Probably. Leave a comment and let me know. Have fun listening/downloading/streaming.
