2015 was a tumultuous year, personally, but at least I had music, wrestling, and pop culture to keep me busy. From Seth Rollins cashing in at WrestleMania to Coheed and Cambria’s perfect new album to marriage equality, here are a few of my favorite things from 2015.
Carly Rae Jepsen’s EMOTION
I really really really really really really loved this album. (Sorry. Had to.) Jepsen provided THE pop album of the year. With tunes such as the stupendous LA Hallucinations and the poignant Black Heart, EMOTION is undoubtedly the blueprint for future pop albums to follow.
What makes EMOTION different from all other pop albums released this year? Its heart. Jepsen manages to intertwine realistic love stories with heartbreaking lyrics and bouncy beats; it’s pure, ravishing magic.
