Top 25 Songs for the Week of June 29, 2015

Every weekday at 11am (ct) I post a “Song of the Day” on my twitter feed (@mattclen2). Each “Song of the Day” is a recently released or currently played song which I think has some unique or interesting quality. Not all of them are great songs (though many are), but each of them is worth a listen.

Below is my compilation of the “Top 25 Songs of the Day”. Each Song of the Day is rotated onto the list for at least one week. The twenty other songs are carry-overs from previous weeks. This ranking is my opinion of the best music currently out there.

Top 25 Songs for the Week of April 13, 2015

Every weekday at 11am (ct) I post a “Song of the Day” on my twitter feed (@mattclen2). Each “Song of the Day” is a recently released or currently played song which I think has some unique or interesting quality. Not all of them are great songs (though many are), but each of them is worth a listen.

Below is my compilation of the “Top 25 Songs of the Day”. Each Song of the Day is rotated onto the list for at least one week. The twenty other songs are carry-overs from previous weeks. This ranking is my opinion of the best music currently out there.
