Before we wrap up 2015 and obsess over the next big thing in music, let’s reflect on the top tracks that caused you to click that little white ‘thumbs up’ icon and bump the volume all year long. Introducing our (really, more your) top 100 thumbed songs of 2015.

So what was trending this year? Movie soundtracks. Three of the top ten tracks came from 2015 box office hits Fifty Shades of Grey and Furious 7. Breakout musician The Weeknd also rocked your thumbs, with “Earned It” coming in at #1, and “The Hills” at #8.
