2014 in lightsMerry New Year

Show 3 of 5. Songs 48 to 32. Enjoy.

This year we have time to play 77 of the 291 songs that made an end of the month wrap up show on NEXT. That’s a lot of great new music. I hope you agree with a few of the selections. Maybe you even forgot some of these. Here’s to a glorious 2014. Thanks for listening.

Please support these bands…or we wouldn’t have bands like this around to support.

If there are any bands/managers/labels etc that want their music removed please contact me (chris at allthingsnext dot com) and I’ll promptly remove it. Thank you, bands. Thank you for making music. Thank you for making my life better because of the music you make. I am a passionate music consumer as are my listeners. If you think NEXT streaming music is bad please think it over again. I am a music maker advocate.

  • Kathleen is my rediscovered song.
    Seasons has been way overplayed ,still one of the best of 2014.
    Some of my NEXT. Favorite is Zombie , past life and Ex’s & Oh’s .
    Good news , My year favorite hasn’t apppeared yet. I am betting it is a top ten.

  • Seasons and songs like that are difficult for my end of the year lists.

    Zombie is a great tune. Took me too long to listen to that album. Too much music.

    When the guitar comes in on Past Life…I smile.

    Thanks for listening and commenting. Enjoy.
