By our calculations there were 391,233 songs released into the world in 2015, so choosing our 20 favorites seemed unfair at best, and impossible at worst. How do you choose a winner from a Grimes' album full of them? And how does only one of Drake's culture-defining anthems make the list? It wasn't easy, and you're more than welcome to disagree. That's what these lists are about, after all.
