Favorite songs from the 2nd 1/4 of 2014

Just because I hardly wrote Music Monday posts in 2014 and hadn't published my quarterly favorite song mixes, doesn't mean I didn't listen and over-listen to some songs. It's just been a very busy year with fun, work and creative endeavors, which are also fun.

Since now it's already 2015, it's about time to share the three missing quarterly mixes so you can check them out and let me know if you'd like to get the mix tape from me.

Today I'll start with my favorite new songs from April, May and June. I plan to publish the other two lists within the coming week.

Links within the list will take you to posts from this blog featuring the song's music video.
