The Inquirer's year end music coverage is coming in this Sunday's Live Life Love A&E section. My top ten albums and an annotated songs of the year playlist will be in there, along with classical music coverage from David Patrick Stearns and a best of Americana list from roots-rock maven Nick Cristiano.

To read all the insightful and highly entertaining copy, you'll have to wait until Sunday. But in the meantime, here's a Songs of 2014 streaming playlist, with a few extras thrown in to make up for the artists included in the Sunday coverage that don't play nice with Spotify.
