Noisey Songs Of The Year: UK Staff Lists

What did your (least) favourite member of the Noisey team pick?

You've seen our top 20, but what did your (least) favourite member of the Noisey team pick? Now you can find out. As you'll see, we were pretty lax with our voting restrictions, so some people did top 10s in order, others just voted for one song. We made a longlist from everyone's votes and fought it out in the meeting room to decide the top 20.

We've copied exactly what people put on their voting forms so you can attack them for erroneous spelling, attribution etc.


Also here's a Spotify playlist with all the tracks from the top 20 that were on Spotify and a bunch of others that people voted for that we added until we got bored. Don't ever say we don't try.
