Counting Down From 80 to 61.

Just as we have at the end of the last two years, the Central Track staff has once again spent the last week reminiscing and pouring pretty tirelessly over the best locally-tied songs of the year. By now, of course, most folks expect as much from their local culture publications. Unlike in previous years, though, we've decided to do things a little differently in 2014. For one, the influx of notable tunes this year prompted us to double the length of our list — from the Top 50 to the Top 100 local songs of the year. At the same time, we didn't want to overwhelm our readers with a huge list of 100 tracks to take in all once, either. To that end, we're going to roll the thing out in daily chunks, unveiling more songs every weekday through the end of the month. It should serve to make the thing a little easier to digest — and give you time to check out the embedded streams of anything you might have missed throughout the course of the year. Really, though, you should give each of these songs a spin. They all deserve at least that much.

Yesterday, when we began the process of unveiling the 100 Best Local Songs of 2014, we promised that you wouldn't have to wait long to find out the next batch of tunes on this year's list. Just a day, is all.

Which brings us to today's batch, in which you'll find tracks 80 through 61.

We know: Throwing 40 tracks at you in 24 hours is a lot, which is in part why we're giving you the weekend to really digest them. And, really, you should digest them. Because, in all honesty, they're all pretty great.

We do suggest you hop to it, though. Because, come Monday, we're unveiling another 20-track chunk. — Cory Graves
