The Best of 2020: Songs

Much like my albums of the year, I’m listing my songs of the year. These songs are standouts and heavily rotated tracks in my library. Only one of the songs happens tp appear on my albums of 2020 list. Nevertheless, it was tough to only pick three, but by limiting that small amount I pull some truly great songs that I’ll be listening to for years to come.

In no particular order, here are my songs of the year, for 2020:

Intentions (feat. Quavo) by Justin Bieber – from Changes

I have fond memories of listening to this song and thinking 2020 was going to be a good year. That quickly changed, but the song is still one of the best. Looking forward to hearing more Bieber in 2021.

Bum Bum by Dirty Heads – from California Island

The first single from a still, kind of, unannounced next album, this came out right at the height of summer. I’m going to call this my summer anthem for 2020. Not a real thinker of a song, but it’s very catchy and fun.

Hard to Forget by Sam Hunt – from Southside

Sam Hunt crawled from his cave and gave us a new album with a new single that samples a 1953 Webb Pierce song that I’ve never heard. Taking an old honky-tonk song and pairing it with a hip-hop beat delivers a new age country hit. Hard to forget proves that Sam Hunt’s latest masterpiece lives up to its name and it truly hard to forget.

Honorable mention:

WAP by Cardi B feat Megan Thee Stallion
