Ranked! Mandatory Top 10 of 2020: Songs of the Year

What makes a memorable song? Is it a bass-boosting beat? Clever lyrics? An unprecedented collaboration between two artists? We’re unsure — but we know a great tune when we hear it. Despite everything 2020 threw at us, it couldn’t make us tune out our favorite songs. In fact, much of what we listened to this year was a welcome escape from the horrific reality we all found ourselves in.

Choosing only 10 earworms to represent the year was tough, but we not only managed to do it, we ranked them, too. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, some of these will be all-too-familiar. Others might be a hidden gem you missed in all your Spotify streaming. Either way, we know you’ll enjoy this Mandatory Top 10 of 2020: Songs of the Year.
