Can the hive band together to suggest tracks for an equally amazing summer 2014 playlist? I'll reproduce some of the description from the previous question:
I am looking for new songs - released this year or maybe last year. Sound-wise, think: dancey sparkly happy groovy. Something that makes you dance in your chair at work, or at least sway or tap your foot. The idea for the playlist came from Get Lucky, which is obviously the opening jam, and things along that line are what I'm aiming for. Leaning more towards electronica, dance, pop, R&B, alternative/rock if the sound is right, and away from more low-fi, slow, or ballad-y stuff like folk or country.
They don't have to be the greatest examples of songwriting in the history of time - this is more about capturing the feel of this particular summer and having a good time in the backyard. Major bonus points for the songs being on Spotify, since that's where I'm pulling this together for now, but I'm not opposed to buying singles if I have to.
Since the 2013 playlist still exists and is still poppin', I'm mainly interested in music that has been released or risen to prominence in the past 12 months. So far I've got Iggy Azalea - Fancy (the track that made me realize that I've been listening to the sounds of 2013 to the exclusion of what must be lots of great new stuff).
