Dori Zori's Top 10 songs of 2015, including Duran Duran at No.1

Hey, it’s Dori Zori, your morning host on 88Nine. Here are my favorite songs of 2015.

Starting at 9am on Wednesday (Dec. 30), we’ll play these — and all of the jocks’ Top 10 picks — on the air. 

10. “Slip Slide” — Donnie Trumpet

Donnie Trumpet and the Social Experiment sounds like a party. One of those parties that all the coolest people show up to and you’re like “who brought the trumpet, cause it sounds amazing.”

9. “Pedestrian at Best” — Courtney Barnett

Combine the lyrics “Put me on a pedestal and I’ll only disappoint you” with some grungy guitars and I’ll start jumping up and down singing at the top of my lungs. Join me!

 

8. “Started Right” — Hot Chip

Electronic dance music made by guys that look straight out of your IT department at work. Their album stayed in my car stereo for months.

7. “GO” — Chemical Brothers feat. Q-Tip

Keeping the dance music theme with a pair of artists who, when they team up, create dance floor magic.

 

 

6. “Circles” — Kate Tempest

She’s won awards for her poetry and spoken word in the UK.

5. “Right On” — Whips

So much great music came out of our city in 2015, but this one gets me hyped up when I’m dragging in the morning, ready to go out and have fun at night or just a great song to sing while strutting down the street.

 

4. “WTF (Where They From)” — Missy Elliot

This is a song I can play on repeat a half a dozen times before I switch to another song, and never get sick of it. If you haven’t checked out the video yet … DO IT NOW!

3. “Here” — Alessia Cara

This is the slowest song on my countdown. An epic jam about not fitting in at a party and just wanting your friends to stop acting like fools.

 

2. “No Cities to Love” — Sleater Kinney

Like a lot of fans, I was so happy that one of my favorite groups released a new album this year. Their sold out show at the Riverside Theater was one of my top five musical highlights of the year.

1. “Pressure Off” — Duran Duran feat. Janelle Monae

My most favorite jam! You can giggle at me all you want — Duran Duran holds a special place in my heart, forever!

 

 

Be sure to listen to all of the DJs Top 10 songs on the air (88.9) Dec. 30 starting at 9am.
