List Rules Only songs that were officially released in 2015. Upvote the songs that you couldn't get out of your head this year, not necessarily your favorite songs.

Musically speaking, 2015 has been very good to us. We've benefited from a number of catchy pop songs, including singles by everyone from The Weeknd to Justin Bieber, and we've officially renewed our obsession with Adele. Thanks to these 2015 earworms, we've spent the last few months going from being "cool for the summer" to not being able to "feel our face when we're with you." We've even had time to "whip" and "nah nae" and dance like Uma Thurman. 

Many of the catchiest songs of 2015 were about your typical topics like sex and romance, but there were also a few oddballs like "Here," which managed the feat of making social anxiety actually sound cool. There was also "Fight Song," which instantly became a fist pumper for an entire generation of quarter-life crisis victims. But it didn't really matter what these earworm songs were about in the end: All that mattered was that they stayed in our head for days, weeks, and even months. 

The blessing and curse of the most catchy songs of 2015 was that they wouldn't leave our brains, but that doesn't mean that we can't celebrate them. Vote up the catchiest songs of 2015, and be sure to let us know what you think in the comment section.
