As 2014 comes to an end, we look back at some of the most popular music of the year. We also bring to your attention some music you may have missed.

随着2014年接近尾声,我们来回顾一些今年最流行的音乐,也顺便提请你注意一些你可能错过了的音乐。

The Billboard Top 200 Album Charts suggests that music lovers this year are enjoying a trip back to 1989. The Billboard Top 200 lists the most popular albums by sales and online streaming activity. 1989 is the title of singer-songwriter Taylor Swift's latest music release. The album currently leads the sales charts for 2014.

公告牌 200专辑榜表明音乐爱好者今年正在享受一场回到1989年的旅程。公告牌 200专辑榜根据销量和在线播放量列出最流行的专辑。《1989》是创作型歌手泰勒?斯威夫特( Taylor Swift)最新发布专辑的名称。这张专辑目前是2014年销量排行榜冠军。

Another popular album this year is the soundtrack to the Disney film "Frozen." It includes the song "Let It Go," which won an Academy Award for Best Original Song.

今年另一张流行专辑是迪士尼电影《冰雪奇缘》的原声大碟。这张专辑中的《 Let It Go 》这首歌获得了奥斯卡原创最佳歌曲奖。

Mr. Brooks had announced his retirement from recording and performing in 2000, but he came out of retirement this summer and started performing around world.

一位流行乡村音乐歌手今年重返了最佳专辑排行榜。加思?布鲁克斯(Garth Brooks )发布了他第九张名为《 Man Against Machine 》录音棚专辑。布鲁克斯在2000年宣布退出录制和表演,但他今年夏天复出并开始在世界各地表演。

Album sales and chart lists, however, are not always the best way to find out if a music album is worth buying. Sometimes the best albums are those that slip through the cracks: they go unnoticed by the general public. Here is a list of albums from 2014 that you might also enjoy.

然而专辑销量和排行榜名单并不是总能找出最值得买的专辑。有时候最佳专辑是那些被大众所忽略的遗珠之作。以下就是2014年你可能会喜欢一些专辑的名单。

We start with an artist who has made a name for himself as an actor as well as a musician. Lenny Kravitz plays several instruments. This summer he released a new album, Strut.

我们首先从一位以演员和音乐家扬名的艺人开始。蓝尼?克罗维兹(Lenny Kravitz )能演奏数种乐器。今年夏天他发布了一张新专辑《Strut》。
