WOW Hits 2015: What’s Your Prediction?

wow hits 2015

The series of WOW Hits, an annual compilation featuring the supposed best of songs in Christian music in a current year, have always been one of the most popular, criticised and publicised releases within Christian music. Always before a list releases of what songs would be on a WOW Hits of any given year, fans of the compilation franchise have always made their fantasy lists of what they would like to appear on a certain WOW disc, and this year is no different.

A double disc CD boasting to be a collection of #1 radio hits in CCM, it is always a tough decision to choose 33 (now 39 with 6 bonus tracks) songs to highlight a year that has been in music. But with the WOW Hits 2015 list being revealed next week, to people who subscribe to the WOW Hits newsletter via email; we at 365 Days of Inspiring Media thought it would be good for us to place in our own prediction of what we think are songs worthy enough to be selected to be on this year’s ‘best’ compilation. While there are some song selections over the years that have been dubious, others have been timely.

Check out our ideal WOW Hits 2015 list below, and sound off in the comments whether you agree with our selections. We will be reviewing WOW Hits 2015 in the coming weeks, when the track listing releases.

  1. Jon, I agree with almost all the songs you arranged up here except that I’d have liked for MercyMe’s Shake to be replaced with Greater. Apart from that, it would be a dream come true if these songs are really in the list. Thanks for a well thought prediction. Well done Jon. 🙂

    1. Thanks for the compliment, Mercy.

      Yeah, I know, it would be a dream come true if my list was an actual list of songs on WOW Hits 2015. However, as much as I reckon these songs aforementioned are worthy to be placed on WOW Hits 2015, I reckon some other songs that I left out could also have equal opportunity of being on WOW Hits 2015. These songs include-
      Jeremy Camp- Come Alive
      Family Force 5- Let it Be Love
      1 Girl Nation- Count Your Rainbows
      City Harbor- Heartbeat
      Mandisa- Back to You
      Jamie Grace- Do Life Big
      Matt Redman- Mercy
      Danny Gokey- Hope in Front of Me
      Big Daddy Weave- Overwhelmed
      I Am They- From the Day
      Unspoken- Start a Fire
      JJ Weeks Band- Let Them See You
      Phil Wickham- This Is Amazing Grace
      Stellar Kart- Criminals and Kings
      Dara Maclean- Our Only Hope
      Bellarive- Bring Us Back
      Laura Story- Who is Like Our God

      Regardless of what songs end up being on WOW Hits 2015, I still think the album will be great and a definite step up from previous years compilations.

      1. I love Jamie Grace’s Do Life Big, I remember dancing to it yesterday. I’m hoping it makes the list too. I am so looking forward to the album. 🙂

  2. And even though I have just heard a snippet of A Little Closer by G1C, I hope it will be included. 🙂

  3. Jon, the list is out and I’m excited that Multiplied by NEEDTOBREATHE is included. I just got the email. 🙂

  4. The WOW Hits 2015 list released today, via email to those who have subscribed to the WOW Hits newsletter. I’m sure a vast number of you all know the WOW Hits 2015 list, however, there may be a few who haven’t subscribed to the newsletter. For the benefit of those people, the official list won’t be published in any capacity until WOW officially releases the list to the public via FB or twitter- it wouldn’t be fair on WOW Hits if we as a site publish the official list before they do. Sorry Mercy, I had to delete your comment. I’ll restore it once the list is officially out next week.
