Top 10 Songs that Most Perfectly Describe the Year 2020It's the year that asked us, "What's next?" and then promptly answered with another curveball. It was a rollercoaster of emotions, with the coronavirus pandemic gripping the world, social unrest and protests in the wake of George Floyd's death shaking the US, and various statues around the world getting a one-way ticket to oblivion. Amid this whirlwind of events, music has been a constant companion -offering solace, sparking contemplation, and even fueling the fires of change.
But which songs, you might ask, have been able to distill the essence of 2020 into melodies and lyrics? Which anthems have resonated with our collective experience, reflecting the tumultuous waves of the pandemic, the stirring quest for justice, and the echoes of history being rewritten? That's where this dynamic list comes in - songs that most perfectly describe the year 2020.
Put it in whatever context you want, but Help! seems fitting for every social issue put in the description of this list
I figured I'd start out with a simple song that is kind of ironically formatted as "20/20 - Survivor" because at this point, surviving 2020 is a miracle.
2020 has been ass so far so I'm grateful I survived it.
Unless you're describing the rating.
Don't freak out. I'm just saying the year is almost done. I'm by no means implying Armageddon.
This seems pretty likely due to inflation and the riots.
At this point, this song sums up 2020 in three words. The Rolling Stones are so optimistic.
I don't even like this song, but we need to stay positive.
Those rioters were exactly this. I envy you if you live elsewhere.
Both sides see each other as this.
Although I don't have built up anger, like Jon does in this song, I am thinking, "Hey God! Remember us? A little help? Please? Amen."
It's funny that this album is called "Hands All Over," since that's exactly what we're trying to avoid, but I agree.
A pretty universal feeling as of 2020. I don't think I know a single soul who wasn't in misery during quarantine.
True because this year been brazy but we should keep holding on.
For when the world is properly reunited with their loved ones.
In other words, rioters.
I considered ending my top 10 songs with "Welcome to Hell," but I decided to end this list on a high note and some optimism so, Don't Stop Believin' it is.
True, this year was ass but we still should believe in it and stay positive.
Thanks for having at least some optimism at the end.
Everything sucks because the same people who are whining about 2020 were also whining about 2019. I bet they'll also whine about 2021.
Yeah, everything kinda does suck, to put it bluntly.
Exactly. Couldn't describe it better
My September was pretty bad.
I think that's why Avril Lavigne made is song in the first place
Did anyone know Avril got this song off her album Head Above Water called 'Warrior'. A fact just in case no one knew
