I have been fidgeting with how to format my favorite songs oif the year, which will probably reach 300 before we reach the end of December. Typing them out is both useless and time consuming (I may and try and figure out another way to do it next year), so I figure I may as well just add the playlist and leave those interested free to listen as they choose.
The adds in October were Young Thug and The War Of Drugs, everything else was here and there, songs from albums, and some big, big singles (Olivia, Lil Nas).
Any which way, here is hundreds, over 14 hours, worth of songs I loved this year.
A bigger than usual year for rock, and a bad year for mainstream superstars like Coldplay though Elton managed a hit single by remixing “Rocket Man” -don’t look for it, it isn’t here…

“Sure, we don’t pay much but then who else do ya know who’ll publish you?”
in the immortal words of Jason Isbell to me at Gov Ball a coupla years ago: “let’s do this…”
one of the great top tens of the 2020
old school Puerto Rican underground sounds
a masterful pop about loving a drug addict
Interpol is at Just Like Heaven
the best post punk UK rock band alive
a beautiful set that held our trust like a child
“We’ll see you next time”
