‘Get Lucky’ by Daft Punk Feat.

‘I Love It’ by Icona Pop Feat. Charli XCX: This pulse-pounding electropop gem from Swedish beat makers / songstresses Icona Pop won over fans from all genres, thanks to the track’s in-your-face, chant-along lyrics, dance-inducing synthesizers, and catchier-than-a-cold chorus. [WATCH THE VIDEO]
‘Live While We’re Young’ by One Direction: 1D had other hits on their album when they released their feel-good single ‘Live While We’re Young.’ With guitar riffs inspired by the Clash and sugary sweet lyrics about seizing the moment and falling in love, Niall, Liam, Louis, Zayn and Harry managed to meld pop and rock together wonderfully.

‘Love Somebody’ by Maroon 5: Co-written and co-produced by Ryan Tedder, this dance-y ‘Overexposed’ single is equal parts pop and rock. Driven mainly by guitar and piano, the Maroon 5 track once again highlights Adam Levine’s unique vocals, especially that breezy falsetto of his. [WATCH THE VIDEO]
‘Thrift Shop’ by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Feat. Wanz: Rapper Macklemore and his producer partner-in-crime Ryan Lewis had their breakout in 2013 with the single ‘Thrift Shop,’ featuring Wanz. The brass-heavy beat is one of the most infectious we’ve heard in a while, and the lighthearted lyrics about “poppin’ tags” had everyone singing and rapping along in 2013. [WATCH THE VIDEO]
