Top 10 Best Songs of 2020

The Top Ten

1 Across Endless Dimensions - Dimash Kudaibergen Across Endless Dimensions - Dimash Kudaibergen Cover Art

The best song - epic! Definitely material for the Academy Award for 'The Best Original Song in a Movie'

What can I say about Dimash Kudaibergen? Words are not enough to describe what an incredible singer he is. I've never heard a voice like his before. There's nothing he can't do with it. You have to hear it to believe it.

A man wrote "who is the best singer of the world" on Google, and found Dimash. He sang this song. Now it is the best song of the world.

Saying Dimash Kudaibergen is a great singer is an understatement of the century. Dimash is the vocals of the generation of great artist. His vocals are one of a kind and unlike no other. This man has 6 Octaves and he can pull off any song with no effort. He can make you feel things like no other has. To this day I still have goosebumps after he sings. This song in incredible he pulls it off so nicely. This song is one of this best works and I'm happy for him. He is the king of vocals!

2 Ordinary Man - Ozzy Osbourne Ordinary Man - Ozzy Osbourne Cover Art

I think I have my biggest pick for this year. It's easily this one.

Pretty impressive for a 71 yr old. Ozzy's voice sounds a bit weird and auto-tunish on here but the epic guitar solo compensated for it.

This should be #1, not Across Endless Dimensions by Dimash Kudaibergen.

This is pretty good. Much better than Bieber.

It's 2020 and you people are still ragging on Bieber for the sake of ragging on Bieber. Can you at least rag on someone more topical?

3 Godzilla - Eminem Godzilla - Eminem Cover Art

Great beat and amazing rapping. Some of the lyrics are a bit stupid, but the rest of the track is so good those few lines can be easily overlooked

Awesome song that you can listen to again and again, and have fun just trying to keep up while singing along!

Eminem's third verse on the track holds the record for his fastest rap verse, rapping 10.65 syllables per second, or 224 words in 30 seconds.

This is just a great song with clever lyrics and an extremely catchy beat and hook from Juice Wrld. Em's final verse is absolutely amazing. This album is his best since The Eminem Show in my opinion.

4 Physical - Dua Lipa Physical - Dua Lipa Cover Art

This might be better than "Don't Start Now" yet probably won't be half the hit that "Don't Start Now" has been. Looking forward to that album, Dua.

Even better than the already incredible "Don't Start Now" shaping up to be one of the best albums of the year

Love this song is my favorite Dua lipa song, also totally recommend the music video!

My second favorite song from Future Nostalgia, after Break My Heart.

5 The Dawn - Dance With the Dead The Dawn - Dance With the Dead Cover Art

This song is from a three-song EP Blackout. All three are awesome, but this is the best one. It's so awesome.

6 Momentary Bliss - Gorillaz Momentary Bliss - Gorillaz Cover Art

I waited so long for them to come back!

This song is a banger.

Love this one

Nice melody that's leads into slowthai.

7 Megawave - Dana Jean Phoenix and Powernerd Megawave - Dana Jean Phoenix and Powernerd Cover Art

This song and the album it's on is absolutely amazing. Dana Jean Phoenix really outdid herself and Powernerd is fantastic on here as well. Also, did I inadvertently add the songs on my remix to this list? I've been finding the songs on my remix on here and I didn't directly add them.

8 Get Your Wish - Porter Robinson Get Your Wish - Porter Robinson Cover Art

THE KING IS BACK!
I love this song so much! It feels like the natural progression of Porter Robinson's music. This is much more personal and real than anything on Worlds, and I'm all for it. I can't wait for Porter's new album!

@coral they put Something Comforting above this song on their remix lol

After six years. This masterpiece was released.

6 years later. He came back for another amazing song :)

9 Speed Me Up - Wiz Khalifa, Ty Dolla $ign, Sueco the Child & Lil Yachty Speed Me Up - Wiz Khalifa, Ty Dolla $ign, Sueco the Child & Lil Yachty Cover Art

It's an amazing song and it's in an amazing movie

10 33rd Trombone Attacc - Lil Mosquito Disease 33rd Trombone Attacc - Lil Mosquito Disease Cover Art

Surprisingly one of the best trap metal songs of the year so far.

Unironically great.

The Newcomers

? Let's Sort the Whole Thing Out - Carly Rae Jepsen Let's Sort the Whole Thing Out - Carly Rae Jepsen Cover Art

Another yet super upbeat banger by Carly Rae Jepsen, though it misses a mark in the vocabulary of pacing, as it falls 1 bpm short short of Vivace. Nonetheless its still an upbeat song that gets one moving.

? Life in Color - Floral Tattoo Life in Color - Floral Tattoo Cover Art

Amazing emo-gaze. One of my favorite basslines ever, with a stunning guitar tone coming in on top.

The Contenders

11 Fall from Grace - Paradise Lost Fall from Grace - Paradise Lost Cover Art

The iconical guitar sound tells you Paradise Lost is here and a feeling of desolation follows. You simply cannot pull it out of your brain's daily soundtrack. It's an anthem of these pandemic times.

Love it.

12 Level of Concern - Twenty One Pilots Level of Concern - Twenty One Pilots Cover Art

Didn't really expect TOP to release a half-pop song, but overall this works out pretty well in my opinion -- the beat's solid throughout and the bassline's pretty cool. While the lyrics are a bit questionable and generic, they're still good enough for TOP I guess. This is far from being their best song, but if this becomes a big hit I'll surely be happy for them. 8/10

Love this song! Definitely what we all needed with everything going on. Even better if you watch the music video with it. 10/10. Hopefully people won't overplay this on the radio, like most of Twenty One Pilots' other best songs.

Yes ordinary man is a good song, but this is the best song of the year!

We don't need another isolation/coronavirus song, this one works just fine for me. Great stuff from TOP

13 Catastrophist - Trivium Catastrophist - Trivium Cover Art

This is a great song, nothing would better than this song. All musical instruments were spot on🔥 You can tell the enthusiasm and effort within this song.

14 Say So - Doja Cat Say So - Doja Cat Cover Art

Gets better with every listen. If only more pop songs were like this.

Such a well produced pop song, reminds me of the early 2010s pop music.

This is honestly something that's really needed in addition to songs like Blinding Lights & Don't Start Now considering all the lame hip-hop/rap songs bombarding the charts for the past few years. It's a pretty fun song in my opinion, I don't really care that it ripped off Fiona Coyne's "Skylar Spence" because Doja Cat fits well with the fun beat and guitar. All in all, it's alright. 6/10

I don't know any other songs on this list other than this so I can't instantly say it deserves to be in the top three... Still, the songs above it better be pretty dang good because Say so is catchy and a great song.

15 Power - Ellie Goulding Power - Ellie Goulding Cover Art

This might be the best thing that Ellie has done since "Burn", this song is solid.

I haven’t liked any of her songs lately it’s a shame because I’ve been a big fan since her first album and have loved her up until 2018 that’s when I started to lose interest in her new music. She was a breath of fresh air in pop music in the early 2010s especially with her unique beautiful voice mixed into electro pop sound, but she’s just not up to the same standards lately.

This is better I remember commenting on her “worry about me” song with blackbear on the worst songs of 2020 list saying I feel she’s being forced to make trap sounding pop music but deep down she wants to make music she likes and shortly after that she says on Twitter that’s she’s returning to her original sound and released this song. Unfortunately record companies are more concerned about money so sometimes artists have to keep up with trends because sadly if they don’t they lose relevance.

16 Sick of the Sun - Poppy Sick of the Sun - Poppy Cover Art

I've been absolutely obsessed with this song for the entirety of 2020. While the rest of I Disagree was fantastic, (and it's in competition with WOMB currently for my AOTY) this song is just... something else.

Maybe it's the indie reverb-heavy guitar sound that addicts me, maybe it's Poppy's HAUNTINGLY beautiful vocal performance, maybe it's the intricate chord progression, most likely it's the depressing lyrics about heavy suicidal idealization that I resonate with WAY too much, maybe it's how ridiculously catchy and overall enjoyable it is,
But whatever the case and whatever keeps it as one of my most regularly-streamed songs on Spotify, it's far and away my SOTY, and more than likely will be my SOTD.

Here's to hoping Poppy releases more gems in the future! :D

17 Out of Luck - Tokyo Rose, Pylot, and Essenger Out of Luck - Tokyo Rose, Pylot, and Essenger Cover Art
18 Simmer - Hayley Williams Simmer - Hayley Williams Cover Art

It's hard to believe that this is the same person who was rocking out in a Flyers T-Shirt 15 years ago. I typically don't listen to music like this but Hayley absolutely killed it. It took me a bit to get into the song (mainly because I had no idea what to expect and I was getting used to it and Hayley's new direction) but by the time the final chorus hit, I had been won over. The song has such a foreboding groove to it and Hayley's vocals are top notch. We've been used to hearing the raw power in her voice for years but this song proved that she can pull off quiet and sensual as well. This woman never ceases to amaze me. I can't wait for the whole album to come out.

I'm not a Paramore/Hayley Williams fan, but I really like this song. I also like the other songs from Petals for Armor.

So this grew on me a bit over the last few days. Really like it a lot.

I really like this song, it's creative, energetic, and amazing all around. Hayley's vocals are stellar here. The music video is definitely weird though ngl.

19 Peacefall - Purity Ring Peacefall - Purity Ring Cover Art

Love this song

20 Faith - The Weeknd Faith - The Weeknd Cover Art

The Weeknd hired some great producers for "After Hours", yes we all know this but shall I say it again?
The production in this song is flat-out amazing, from the instrumentation in the beginning to the gloomy outro.
Emphasis on that outro.
I'd also like to mention the lyrical content of this song, where he connects him being high to "losing his faith". Definitely something worth checking out, and as of rn I have no idea if he's gonna release this as a single but it'd be pretty cool if he did, just curious as to how people will respond to the last minute and a half.
But anyways, this is one of the best tracks off the album, deserves more attention in my opinion. 11/10

Easily the best thing 2020 has to offer. The production is beautiful here and the outro is easily one of his best. After Hours is easily the best album of the year and this is my favourite song of it. The way the gloominess emphasizes on everything is brilliant too. 6/5

EDIT: Best song was gonna be Blinding Lights but it was from 2019 lol my bad.

I'm honestly shocked this wasn't released as a single. One of the best songs on his 'After Hours' album.

Wow, imagine hearing this in a club the whole vibe and mood would be on another level.

21 Good News - Mac Miller Good News - Mac Miller Cover Art

One of the most sad and heartbreaking songs I've ever heard. RIP Mac.

22 Stardew - Purity Ring Stardew - Purity Ring Cover Art
23 Underneath - Code Orange Underneath - Code Orange Cover Art
24 Armageddon - Timmy Trumpet and Florian Picasso Armageddon - Timmy Trumpet and Florian Picasso Cover Art
25 Night - ALITD

I searched it up and I thought it was a little choppy but overall it was a decent track. It was worth the time though.

I heard the track and I think it is pretty decent. I think it is definitely worth the time to search up and listen to hear.

And another under the radar song that deserves more hits.

This track is awesome
