The Top Ten
1 Dance the Night - Dua Lipa
2 Cupid - Fifty Fifty
3 Lost - Linkin Park

Finally, we haven't had anything good from Linkin Park in almost 10 years (One More Light was crap), but this song saved us. Long live Linkin Park.

Pretty awesome unreleased song from the Meteora era of Linkin Park. Very excited for the 20th anniversary of Meteora and what these unreleased songs/demos will be like.

Ah, it's so nice to hear Chester's voice again. Can't wait to see what the 20th anniversary edition of Meteora will be like.

4 But Here We Are - Foo Fighters
5 Begin Again - Jessie Ware

I'm aware it only went to number 1 because of my remix, but PLEASE give this a listen. This is one of the most incredible, grand, and uplifting pop songs I've ever heard in my entire life. The album this comes from, That! Feels Good!, is probably the best pop album of the decade so far. If you haven't listened to it, give it a spin. You won't regret it.

6 Only Love Can Save Us Now - Kesha
7 Pastel Painted People in Candy Coloured Crowds - The Arcana
8 Eat the Acid - Kesha
9 Storyboard - The Arcana

Soaring in the stratosphere guitar.

10 C’est Comme Ça - Paramore

Another great song by Paramore. Looks like their album will be awesome.

The Newcomers

? Casual - Chappell Roan
? In the City - Charli XCX & Sam Smith
The Contenders
11 Every Mountain - The Arcana
12 Vampire - Olivia Rodrigo

Following the smash success of her debut album Sour in 2021, Olivia Rodrigo is back with a new scorcher. It may sound like a "Drivers License 2.0" at the beginning, but it quickly transitions into a dramatic pop-rock number that delivers an emotional punch without bending under its own weight of pathos. As always, her vocals are stunning, and her songwriting is honest and straightforward. This is the lead single to her upcoming sophomore album GUTS. Welcome back, OR. I can't wait to see how you've grown since Sour.

13 You First - Paramore
14 White Horse - Chris Stapleton
15 King of Oklahoma - Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit
16 I Can See You Today - The Arcana
17 Michael Keaton - Ruston Kelly
18 Lifetime - The Arcana
19 Am I Dreaming - Metro Boomin, A$AP Rocky & Roisee
20 Miracle - Calvin Harris & Ellie Goulding

Is it yet another remake of a classic 90s dance song? Nope! It's an original song by Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding influenced by trance music. While this song does not reinvent the wheel when it comes to EDM, it still feels like a welcome breath of fresh air among all those EDM tracks we hear on the radio that are indistinguishable from one another or revolve around a sample or remake of a classic song (David Guetta, you heard me there). Shoutout to Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding for creating this gem that will be one of my summer jams.

21 Kisses - Slowdive

This hypnotic and dreamlike song is my current favorite of 2023 as of August. My love for this song took me down a hazy path into Slowdive's discography and other shoegaze albums.

22 A&W - Lana Del Rey

Lana Del Rey keeps on impressing me with this new track. It starts off as a folksy ballad before slowly morphing into a trap beat. It also features some of Lana's best lyrics to date. I can't wait to hear the album.

23 Ghost - Ava Max

Easily the best track off of Diamonds and Dancefloors. I will never tire of themes that illustrate ghostly figures as premonitions of the lovely but fearful psychological terrors that torment the mind. The danger that they provide impacts you even when they're not around. It's a perfect mirror of Cold as Ice, with a shifted perspective of who's really the true hexing enchantress in the relationship.

24 Can't Tame Her - Zara Larsson
25 Gossip - Måneskin

Another nice rocker by Måneskin with a catchy chorus. Tom Morello's solos are nice too, although they're kinda generic.
