Chandeliers of Music. Corby's Orbit / Radio Regent Toronto - Greatest Hits of 2014

You all have a profound and personal tune-list of songs. This year, in the air traffic control center of my affections, admirations and appreciations, these songs have offered me some cultural comfort, bolstered my imagination, strengthened my conviction that music, as thought, matters more than matter, and played continually in my head without benefit of a device. Amongst many others...

I programmed them all on my show, and often more than once. There are a few Top 40 selections here, as proof against the arguers who say that no new music is as good as back in the day. Even EDM has its epiphanies.Thanks to all the makers.
