Top 10 Tracks of 2015: Dave Moore

It is coming up to the end of another year, there was some fantastic music released this year with some great new artists making a big name for themselves on an international level. As the year had so many great songs I decided to start a feature on the top ten tracks of 2015. I have asked a few people within the music industry to compile a list of their favourite tracks of 2015.

Check out the second list provided by Today FM radio presenter Dave Moore.

10. Gavin James – For You

This song is such a thing of beauty. Gavin’s voice is one of the finest around, on any stage. Its purity is breathtaking. This song showcases it so well. Try singing along. You’ll quickly see the difference between him and you!

9. Calvin Harris & Disciples – How Deep Is Your Love

I can’t get enough of this song. It’s just such a great melody and Calvin Harris’ production skills make it seem like it’s all so simple. It isn’t. He’s a genius.

8. Jessica Smith – 50/50

One of Dublin’s best undiscovered acts is surely going to blow up in 2016. This song has smash hit written all over it and, if a bona fide star had recorded it, we’d be hearing it all over the world.

7. The 1975 – Love Me

Responsible for my song of the year in 2013 with Chocolate, I was waiting for the next smash hit and here it is! Elements of the 80s' finest pop ooze out of this. Bowie, Gabriel, they're all in there.

6. The Shackles – Summer Is Golden

If there was a more summery summer sunshine song, I didn’t hear it. This had everything. A great melody, lovely lyrics and whistling!

5. The Academic – Different

This blew the cobwebs off everyone in radio in 2015. A massive breath of fresh air from one of the brightest hopes in Irish music. Followed up spectacularly by the next two singles too.

4. Slipknot – Killpop

The entire Gray Chapter album is astounding. AOV is probably one of my favourite songs of all time but Killpop was released as a single in 2015 so I’m going for that one. It’s quite approachable, as Slipknot goes. Give it a try.

3. The Coronas – The Long Way

Easily my favourite non-metal song of the year. The title track of their latest album and just streets ahead of anything else I heard this year. I can't get enough of it.

2. Murdock – What You Don’t Like, What You Don’t Know

Ireland's finest metal at its absolute finest. This song has everything. Singalong riffs, time signature changes and vocals to scythe you in two.

1. Fightstar – Sink With The Snakes

There is nothing I don't love about Fightstar's new album, Behind The Devil's Back. This song, under three minutes, is its crowning glory. Seven-string guitars, riffs and melodies. Everything I ever wanted. I could have chosen pretty much every track off it but I had to go with one so this is my actual favourite.

Ciaran O'Brien

Founder of The OB, Ciaran is also a cameraman and video editor that has an obsession with all things music. He created The OB Sessions in 2014 and set up The OB Blog in 2015.
