Top Pop/Rock Songs of 2014

In 2014, Pop/Rock music welcomed an incredible rookie class of new artists like Sam Smith, Iggy Azalea, MAGIC, A Great Big World, and others. While Ed Sheeran, Paramore, and One Republic returned to hit making. Oh, and by the way, Taylor Swift was a huge free agent pick up. Year after year it seems as if a Pop/Rock star can be made after one song or they can fizzle away. The artists on this list appear to buckled in for a long haul.

Some of the songs that did not make the top 25 list:

Maroon 5- Maps

Iggy Azelea- Black Widow

Pitbull- Fireball

Sia – Chandelier

Demi Lovato – Really Don’t Care

One Direction- You & I

Tove Lo- Habits

Ed Sheeran- Sing

Ingrid Michaelson – Girls Chase Boys

Paramore- Still Into You

Mary Lambert- Secrets

NFL Week 15, Storylines, NFC West, Picks, and Manziel

Remember the phrase, “Any given Sunday”? Any team did win in week 14, Who would have believed that Carolina would go ahead and steamroll New Orleans in New Orleans? Oh, wait I did. Seattle only allowed fourteen points to the highflying Eagles. The Raiders yes the Raiders won the Battle of the Bay 24-13. Finally, Pittsburgh went into Cincy and doubled em’ up. The last three weeks of the season is sure to be exciting and action packed.

Storylines

  • Is the Legion of Boom really back?
  • Is Jay Gruden really on the hot seat after one season?
  • Can St. Louis continue its hot streak?
  • Will the Green Bay winning streak continue?
  • Can Derek Anderson lead the Panthers to another win without Cam Newton?

Arizona

The Cards were able to hold off the Kansas City Chiefs last week to capture they’re tenth victory of the season. I believe it was the teams last win. There are just too many holes in this boat and not enough gum. Carson Palmer and Andre Ellington are gone for the season. Tyrann Mathieu will not play this week. On the bright side it does look like Larry Fitzgerald will be on the field.

To finish the season, the Arizona must go to St. Louis, play Seattle at home, and then travel to San Francisco. That schedule should seem impossible for a team that is fourteenth in the league in passing and thirtieth in rushing.

Cleveland

Eric Berry

The Chiefs safety was diagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma earlier this week. The fifth year player only played in six games this season where he had thirty- seven combined tackles. According to the Chiefs website, Hodgkin Lymphoma is treatable and potentially curable. Get well, Eric!
