It's that time of the year again for those 'best of 2014' lists, and the three of us will all be sharing our top tracks from this past year over the next 3 weeks. It's been a great year for music, and hopefully you all have enjoyed the variety of disco, house, pop, and techno music we've shared in 2014.

10. Roisin Murphy - 'Ancora Ancora Ancora'

2014 marked the official return of Roisin Murphy, seven years after her last full release, the massive Overpowered LP.  Her Italian language Mi Senti EP was comprised mostly of covers of Italian pop and disco songs, including 'Ancora Ancora Ancora.'  Severino (of the famed Horsemeat Disco) and Nico de Ceglia remixed this into a beautiful piano-laden track that showcases Murphy's vocal chops.  Supposedly, a new full length album is in the works for her in 2015. 

Check out the rest of my top 10, AFTER THE JUMP...

Jessica Lange Covering Lana Del Rey's 'Gods and Monsters' Tops iTunes Charts - WATCH

Lang

Over the past few weeks Jessica Lange has been serving up anachronistic covers of contemporary songs as American Horror Story’s Elsa Mars. The one thing that the Freakshow ringleader desires more than anything else in the world is the adulation of a captive audience, and according the iTunes billboard chart, she may be getting her wish.

Last Friday Lange’s cover of Lana Del Rey’s "Gods and Monsters" topped the iTunes soundtrack charts, ousting Disney’s Frozen and breathing new life into Del Rey’s original rendition of the song. Though this season of AHS takes place in 1950’s Florida, the songs that 20th Century Fox has released as digital singles have all been hits from other eras including David Bowie’s "Life on Mars" and Fiona Apple’s "Criminal."

"I love what [Baz Luhrmann] does with his movies like Great Gatsby and Moulin Rouge where you don't play period stuff, you do stuff from all eras that fit the story," Murphy told Entertainment Weekly of the show’s eclectic song choices. "So we decided we only were going to highlight musical artists who at some point in their career had identified themselves as feeling like freaks or misfits or outcasts, which our people are going through."

The OXD Mirror: A Dose of Pop-Infused Tunes For Early Summer

Lana Del Rey's ethereal tracks have always mixed well into upbeat remixes (like 'Summertime Sadness'), but I have also come to love her songs in their untouched forms over time, including her latest single release 'West Coast.' 

Lana Del Rey: 'West Coast (MK Remix)'

'West Coast' is the first single from her new album Ultraviolence, and in its original form is a spooky, guitar-heavy anthem, with an appropriate California Rock/Fiona Apple feeling to it. House music genius MK (Marc Kinchen) completely reworked this song into a pulsing dance track — keeping intact the interesting ebbs and flows that the vocals and instrumentals take during the song.

Lana Del Rey: Meet Me In The Pale Moonlight – AUDIO

Lana Del Rey Ultraviolence

Lana Del Rey, the "stiff, distant, and weird" singer of "Video Games" has dropped a new single titled "Meet Me In The Pale Moonlight" from her upcoming album Ultraviolence.

The tune evokes a lounge-y 70's disco vibe, complete with violins and just dash of contemporary sensibilities in percussion and bass.

UPDATE: LDR confirms the track is old and says the new single is called "West Coast".
