The Song List: 2018

We’ve got The Album List: 2018 following later today, but here lies the 100 greatest songs of 2018. Chosen by me and soon to be loved by you (possibly already loved by you!); 2018 can be described in many ways, but here’s three:

  • America had her wig snatched, revealing the life threatening reality for black Americans.
  • An indie group encouraged us all to leave the house and created one of the biggest debut tracks of the last decade.
  • The French revolution took place. Sexuality and personal freedom in identity and embracing flaws became a more acceptable notion and opened up a new conversation.

But really that’s just our top three songs:
