KARACHI: As 2014 comes to an end, The Express Tribune has combined a list of the Pakistani songs that stood out by a mile.
With Strings taking over as producers of Coke Studio and mega stars like Rahat Fateh Ali releasing his solo album ‘Back2love’, the year was full of hits and misses.
However, credit must be given to young acts like Jimmy Khan, Sibti & Spoonful and Naseer & Shahab for releasing some fresh music. And the likes of Zoe Viccaji and Abbas Ali Khan for actually having the courage to release whole albums when releasing singles has become the trend in Pakistani music industry.
Here is a list, in no particular order, of our top 10 picks for songs of 2014.
