The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2015: SPORTS

I am forever running late. While it may not be a part of my charm, I would refer you to the old saying about better late than never. In any case, after probably way too much thought, I finally settled upon my favorite 50 records from the year that was 2015. I'm also mixing it up a little this year, y'all. Instead of ranking every record, I'm giving you my picks in alphabetical order, saving my number one, very favorite record of the year for last. So sit back, relax, and refresh your memory of last year's best with a group of records that I hope will tickle your fancy.

Who: SPORTS

What: All of Something

When: November 2015

Where: Father/Daughter

Why: There's something so very charming about this record. An overall youthful energy pops through the entire long player, balanced against solid, crunchy instrumentation and a wry, feisty vocal talent. Lean and wiry and alive, this punchy, sometimes deceptively happy group of songs really hits the spot.  

My very favorite jam: "Saturday" and "Getting On In Spite Of You" and "Harder" and "Get Bummed Out" and "GDP"
