The year that one-named lady from London, Adele, returned to save the CD business by breaking seemingly unbreakable sales records and The Weeknd turned his dark, drug-fuelled opuses into singalong pop smashes.

It was the year that Justin Bieber found redemption by accepting Skrillex as his lord and saviour while Drake followed-up his tough-as-nails Meek Mills beef by dad-dancing in a sweater and singing about cell phones.

The year that Rihanna never left the radio despite not releasing an album, Kendrick Lamar soundtracked the Black Lives Matter movement and Buffy Sainte-Marie rocked out to became the first septuagenarian Polaris Prizewinner.

It was a very good year.

Here are the best songs of 2015.
