Top 10 Best Songs of 2021

The Top Ten
1 Leave The Door Open - Bruno Mars, Anderson.Paak & Silk Sonic

Damn, this song is so insanely good! It has great 70s vibes without sounding like a pastiche. Bruno's vocals are excellent just like Anderson's. Just when I thought Bruno Mars would be declining, he comes back and blows me off the ceiling with a collaboration that turns out to be a match made in heaven. Welcome back Bruno! I can't wait to see what the Silk Sonic album will be.

I'm not that much into soul but this song is insanely glossy, lush, & well-crafted. Welcome back Bruno, 10/10.

Bruno is back! I'm in love with this song; hope to see more music like this in the new album.

This seriously gives me 70s/80s soul vibes. I love it. Did I mention that Bruno Mars gives me Prince vibes?

2 Good 4 U - Olivia Rodrigo

"I guess that therapist I found for you, she really helped
Now you can be a better man for your brand new girl"
There are a lot of things I like about this song but that line alone puts it over the top for me just the right balance between being mean and patronizing yet not quite going over board.

This song is a sparkle like there are very few in music these days. Just when I expected Olivia Rodrigo to release another ballad, she arrives with a pop-punk smash and proves once and for all that she's a pop star in her own right despite still being a teenager. Her success is totally deserved and this song shows that she's a singer who speaks to her generation.

Olivia Rodrigo surprised me again! She really kills it on this pop-punk song. It brings back to 2000s Avril Lavigne and Paramore without imitating them note for note. I am really looking forward to Olivia's debut album, I hope it will be as good as the singles she released.

Okay this song is so good! Olivia gets emotional and intense in this song, and I like music like that. One thing though, why is all her songs about breaking up?

3 Easy on Me - Adele

The REAL BEST song of the year. Her return after 6 years was an unbelievable feat & her voice shows us she still endures & has it. It even has a great melody & we remember it as well & its atmosphere is classic Adele quality. It even broke Spotify's record for the most streamed song in 24 hours & is #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Take that Olivia Rodrigo, Justin Bieber & BTS! Even Drivers License, Stay & Butter couldn't stand a chance. This's the song of the year. PUT THIS TO #1!

Satisfying return for Adele. Her vocals still sound great. Can't wait to see what she will bring up next.

Wonderful return, I'm very surprised that this isn't higher. One of her best songs!

Adele is a great singer and she made her comeback awesome with this song.

4 Montero (Call Me by Your Name) - Lil Nas X

I don't listen to Lil Nas X at all other than this song, and I love it. I have really enjoyed seeing more LGBTQ people creating art, and even more, seeing it become mainstream. Not to mention, the song goes hard.

This song has grown on me since its release. It's so catchy and lustful and is a welcome change from trap-pop or drill.

Lil Nas X needs some therapy but excluding my opinion about him this is a good song!

I'm not crazy about Lil Nas X but I think this song is interesting musically.

5 Smokin Out The Window - Bruno Mars, Anderson.Paak & Silk Sonic

This album would be 10/10, I swear.

6 Anyone - Justin Bieber

I want to hate this song. Really bad. Anything coming out of Justin Bieber is enough to turn me off. But I begrudgingly gave this song a try and I will admit I was pleasantly surprised. It's better than ANYTHING on his latest album. His vocal performance on this track is amazing, especially at the chorus, despite the production being a little bloated in my opinion. Just when I thought JB was becoming a gimmick, he comes out with this song and proves me wrong. I hope this will be his new direction.

I un-ironically like this. This is genuinely a good song from a once hated music artist. It's a very good improvement after his less than good 2020 run.

Might be my favorite song from him, even though I don't like him. I give it a 9/10.

This song is surprisingly good. It is probably Justin's best song yet. 8/10

7 Take My Breath - The Weeknd

Another smash by The Weeknd. I really love the synth-disco vibes and his vocals on this one. I'm looking forward to more.

8 Drivers License - Olivia Rodrigo

It just came out on January 8th & it outdid every other song in quality & everything. It's the great song of 2021 & truly the greatest in decades. Better than all the garbage playing & it's among the most heartbreaking songs ever made. This's up to Tears In Heaven by Eric Clapton & My Immortal by Evanescence given how sad it really is & that doesn't do justice for people who cry over sad songs. Yet it's upbeat, powerful, inspiring & emotional all at the same time. Yet it became the 1st song of 2021 to ever hit #1 on iTunes & the pop charts as well as anything. Take a hint guys. This is REAL music & not filled with drugs, sexual content or racism. A whole Lotta effort was put into it & it's like the 1st time in a decade a new artist released a great and powerful song in the mainstream (though her other & 1st song was made specifically for Disney Channel). Still can't believe an actress from a Disney Channel show like Bizzardvark would come up with a song that would take every other ...more

Teen pop has rarely been this emotional. You can see that this 17-year-old has put a lot of effort into this song. You can hear the pain in her vocals considering she was going through a painful breakup but at least she's not trying so hard to be melodramatic. This song is sweeping all competition and rightfully so, I'd rather have kids buying into this than rappers who promote drug use, sex, weapons or violence and objectify women or call them "bitches" or "hoes". I'm so glad a HEARTFELT song is set to be at #1. People who hate sad songs will likely be disappointed but this song is not stealing its success.

Great lyrics and very well produced. I feel that some of the parts are maybe a little too intense for my taste but it's only a minor flaw. Also she sounds a lot like Lorde in the second half but we haven't gotten any new music from Lorde in a long time so oh well.

Her performance on Jimmy Fallon's show convinced me that this song is great. I just hope Olivia can follow this up well.

9 No Son of Mine - Foo Fighters

First thing I thought when I read the title and heard the first chord is that it would be a cover of a Genesis song, but you would be totally wrong to think so because this song SLAPS... HARD! It's great to hear FF again, I hope the album will be just as good, if not better.

Oh thank god, this is so much better than "Shame Shame", this is a return to form for the Foo Fighters.

This is easily the best single that they've released so far for their new album.

This is a good song

10 Techno Syndrome 2021 - Benjamin Wallfisch

The Newcomers

? Cody - The Killers
? The Letter - Chevel Shepherd
The Contenders
11 Astronaut in the Ocean - Masked Wolf

I'm mostly voting on my brothers half, but I like this song too.

This actually came out in 2019.

12 Bad Dream - Cannons
13 Sabotage - Bebe Rexha
14 Fallen Angel - AmaLee
15 Waiting on a War - Foo Fighters

This shows that the Foo Fighters are still capable of making excellent songs. Lovely alternative ballad.

Hi, I am Myanmar. I like your songs.

16 Chemtrails Over the Country Club - Lana Del Rey

This song is amazing! 10/10

17 Brutal - Olivia Rodrigo

I can just sing to it

18 Pictures - AACACIA

Soulful and tight...wonderful vocals. This is the best song of 2021 so far in my opinion

19 WUSYANAME - Tyler, the Creator

Great sample and great utilisation of the sample. The song itself is great.

20 My Universe - Coldplay X BTS

I think it's really good ! Blows my mind

21 Only Love Can Save Me Now - The Pretty Reckless
22 Cold Heart - Elton John, Dua Lipa
23 L8r Boi - Ashnikko

Pretty funny remake of "Sk8r Boi" by Avril Lavigne. If you like creative sampling or covers, you should give it a listen!

24 Happier Than Ever - Billie Eilish

I didn't think Billie Eilish had it in her for a song like this, a song all soft and quiet in the first half to go absolutely alternative rock in the second half. I love how unpredictable she is with her music.

25 Sic Parvis Magna - Xijaro & Pitch
