Last year, I did a Top 100 moments post from the Take Me Home Tour in 2013. That one was illuminating in its consistency and was a great way to revisit a year most of us do not think of with great fondness.
This list was different to put together. It was less about proving consistency (though that is still apparent) but more about enjoying the little looks and exchanges we still get to see. While they were certainly more restricted in their interactions on and off stage (at least after the astounding South American leg), overall, 2014 was a much easier and more enjoyable year than the previous one in a lot of ways, for them and for us.
