Best of 2015: Staff lists

List seasons ends in traditionally irreverent fashion with all the Juno Plus contributors outlining the year in their own distinct fashion.

After laying down almost 20,000 words for this year’s bout of roundups and rundowns, the chance to disengage the brain, adopt a more humourous tone, and induldge in some simple list making is all too welcome. As has become customary, we end this year with a selection of lists from all the individuals that have contributed to the Juno Plus cause this year, with the majority of those featured choosing to focus on music, reflecting well on everything that has been released in 2015.
