Best Of 2021: Songs In Order Of Preference Through January 31st

I have struggled with Best Singles for years now, I tried writing a review of every song but the result was an unwieldy mess. Yet, is just song titles are enough? I am going to stay with just a list for now and a comment by month at the end…

Song of Trouble (feat. Sufjan Stevens) – CARM, Sufjan Stevens
Tryin’ To Get To Heaven – David Bowie
Fillin’ My Cup (feat. Little Big Town) – Hailey Whitters, Little Big Town
Dream Weapon – Genghis Tron
cloak n dagger – glaive, ericdoa
Girl Like Me (feat. H.E.R.) – Jazmine Sullivan, H.E.R.
You Are Lord Of All – JJ Hairston, Phillip Bryant, Pocket Of Hope
Mouthful of Blood – Juliana Hatfield
Hardline – Julien Baker
drivers license – jxdn
The Bandit – Kings of Leon
Mighty Soul – Langhorne Slim
Blue Vein – Lael Neale
Coal Miner’s Daughter (Recitation) – Loretta Lynn
More Than My Hometown – Morgan Wallen
Wellerman – Sea Shanty – Nathan Evans
Country Home – Live – Neil Young, Crazy Horse
Middle Child – Nervous Dater
drivers license – Olivia Rodrigo
This Mess We’re In – Demo – PJ Harvey
Glimpses – Sleaford Mods
Everything I Had – Sun June
rubberband – Tate McRae
Action Replay – The Fratellis
Fallin’ (Adrenaline) – Why Don’t We
Public Execution – Worn
Nice to Me – You Me At Six

January: The month belonged to Olivia Rodriguez excellent Taylor Swift influenced “driver’s license,” with a sensational 2.3 BILLION  streams on Spotify alone. The other shocker here is that after two years or so of finding sadgirl-boy -sadteens if you prefer,  bedroom electronics underwhelming,  the genre came into its own with jxdn, Olivia, Tate McRae, and, although clearly not text book, the indie pop band Sun June. Nothing that great for hip hop… which is usually my go to genre…
