Top 10 Best Songs of 2020

The Top Ten
1 Across Endless Dimensions - Dimash Kudaibergen Across Endless Dimensions - Dimash Kudaibergen Cover Art

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!

Dimash is the only singer in the world who I love and consistently listen to everyday. Never has happened before in my 71 years. I am thoroughly addicted. Dimash has the largest world-wide fan base imaginable, and has fan clubs in over 120 countries with his largest fan base in China. People that do not know Dimash should not under-estimate him. His Dears (fans) are avid supporters and a force that adores him, promotes him, and protects him. He is a national treasure of his country, Kazakhstan, and an ambassador to all countries he visits. Dimash a is highly educated singer and composer—and sings in 12 languages and plays around 6-7 instruments. Dimash is highly deserving of this and all other awards he wins.

One of Dimash's best songs. And the best song of 2020. What can I say that hasn't already been said? No one even comes close to Dimash vocals wise. Not Whitney, not Mariah, not David Phelps, not MJ, not Elvis, no one. In my opinion Dimash is the greatest vocalist ever. For some people who have never heard of him, I highly recommend listening to his covers of Sinful Passion, Hello, and the song that introduced me as well as most others to him, SOS.

Exercising the art of singing is not just externalizing a gift received from Nature. It is mainly honoring this gift and developing it through study, training, perseverance and love. All this is what this young artist Dimash did and still does. And this makes him increasingly great and incomparable in the art of singing.

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

We let WAP become a number 1 hit but this didn't even come close to touching the charts. This lyrics are simple yet introspective and powerful coming from Ozzy & Elton. Slash on guitar, Duff McKagan on bass, & Chad Smith on drums for a rock ballad I mean come on

Trust us Ozzy, I don't even like Black Sabbath,
Or care for a lot of your music

But your latest album, 'Ordinary Man' was fantastic! the title track is a ballad that features ELTON FREAKING JOHN on it!

Your words have been heard Ozzy. You will NOT die an ordinary man.

This is way better than WAP from Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion. I would prefer to listen Ozzy Osbourne and Elton John singing real music over garbage music.

Already commented on this and I’m not gonna talk about why this song isn’t first on this list but this is probably the most honest song Ozzy has ever written. He doesn’t want to die an ordinary man. The guitar solo is great as well and is actually played by Slash of Guns N Roses

3 Godzilla - Eminem Godzilla - Eminem Cover Art

This track slaps so hard.
It may have some dumb lyrics and Juice WRLD shouldn't be exploited but Marshall had already taken his audio before he died anyway.
Because of that 40 seconds flamethrower at the end, catchy beat, a decent chorus from Jarrad, and of course Hey, fray ajajajaj, I have to give a vote to this.
Definitely recommend it.

As much as I hate how many mainstream artists are using Juice WRLD's dead voice as a way to sell more tracks, this song is str8 fire.
Eminem was smoother here than he was in Rap God. The lyrics are a meh, but the beat is unique, Juice WRLD does a good job on the choruses and Marshall SLAMS on the final delivery. Definitely worth the listen.

Impressive songs by Eminem. Adding the late Juice WRLD and the last verse with all these surprise guests. (Mike Tyson, Dre Dre, and Mr Porter from D12.)

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

4 Physical - Dua Lipa Physical - Dua Lipa Cover Art

Don't Stop Now and Break my Heart are great, but this song is just sheer pop magic. Most of Future Nostalgia is in general. Best song on the album along with Hallucinate.

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.

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

This song is so catchy. The perfect pop song

5 Rain on Me - Lady Gaga & Ariana Grande Rain on Me - Lady Gaga & Ariana Grande Cover Art

Lady Gaga basically brought the pop side of Ariana out again with this one, it works really well considering they both have completely different tones to their voices to one another they actually complement each other and that 90s house inspired instrumental is so nice to hear but it has a modern feel to it and they got the music video right I like the whole futuristic atmosphere and the chemistry between them. A refreshing to hear on the radio lately

This is what pop should be. No whining about how the opposite gender is bad towards you, no overblown synths, not overtly sexual, and is a very fun an upbeat ballad-like song.

To be really honest I did not expect this do as well as its currently doing now amongst the trap songs that have taking over hopefully it’s a sign that we’ll have more of a variety of songs playing on the radio and in the charts, we’ve got Dua Lipa, The Weeknd, Lady Gaga, Harry Styles just to new a few all making feel good pop records they all have managed to chart very high on Billboard charts in the past few months. I have nothing against trap music but it’s about time we have a variety of songs in the charts as well otherwise things become really boring and repetitive.

This song rocks! Ariana and Lady GaGa are both different in terms of music, but they complement each other well. The 90’s house music beat is very refreshing to hear after all the trap pop songs we’ve had over the past few years. The message is also great. We seriously needed this right now, especially in times like this.

6 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.

7 Momentary Bliss - Gorillaz Momentary Bliss - Gorillaz Cover Art

Been waiting for their comeback since clint eastwood and bang their back with a great song

This track is everything one would love about Gorillaz.

I waited so long for them to come back!

Gorillaz as a collective did good but slowthai did great.

8 No Time to Die - Billie Eilish No Time to Die - Billie Eilish Cover Art

My Future is great, but this is Billie's best single of the year. Probably her best single in general, alongside Everything I Wanted. Though there's also Bury a Friend and When the Party's Over... It's hard to decide. I'm like a kid in a dark, spider-infested candy store. Billie just keeps giving us quality and I'm all for it.

At first, I was kind of hesitant when I heard Billie Eilish was doing the newest Bond theme but after hearing it, I totally get why they chose her. This is the best I've heard her sound in a while and those Hans Zimmer orchestral bits add to that trademark Finneas production that give off that signature Bond theme atmosphere

Definitely not a fan of Eilish, but she did a good job on this song. It might not be favourite Bond soundtrack but it still fits to the Bond theme

Different to the usual bond songs, but still a distinctly bond song.

9 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.

Great album from Trivium, good song.

10 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.

The Newcomers

? D**ked Down in Dallas - Trey Lewis

For anyone who's curious as to what this song really is, it's a viral country song that somehow got popular on TikTok before it's official release a month later.
Back to the song -- even if you didn't appreciate the underlying humor in 'WAP', this song's absolutely hilarious. Trey Lewis tells the story of how his girl left him to "find love" elsewhere and the best part is that he goes into detail of what the girl is doing. Not to mention that the music itself supports that, especially that key change at the end.
The song is currently doing really well on iTunes and Apple Music and looks like it's gonna appear on the Hot 100 and have some actual stability, and I'll be rooting for it all the way. 9/10

? Stunnin' - Curtis Waters Stunnin' - Curtis Waters Cover Art
The Contenders
11 Level of Concern - Twenty One Pilots Level of Concern - Twenty One Pilots Cover Art

Obviously my Twenty One Pilots bias will force me to vote this song, but it's still great regardless. Glad to see this song pushed them back into decent chart success, even if temporarily.

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.

I LOVE twenty one pilots. this song is not disappointing, and the music video is awesome. it comes on the car radio (phun intended) sometimes and I sing along with every word. twenty one pilots are an awesome band.

12 Break My Heart - Dua Lipa Break My Heart - Dua Lipa Cover Art

After "New Rules," "Don't Start Now," and now this, I have a feeling we won't be forgetting Dua Lipa's contribution to the modern music scene any time soon.

Dua Lipa interpolates INXS hit "Need You Tonight" for this sparkly disco pop song and it just works so damn well.

I love this song how the heck on earth is it number 11 in my opinion it should be 1

Awesome Song! Should be in the top 10 with Physical!

13 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

Just like Can't Feel My Face, Abel does another song about how a drug (cocaine) addiction is ruining his life.
Instead of sounding deceivingly upbeat he does a heavy song that I just love to listen to.
It gives me Lost in the Fire flashbacks.

Faith is the Weeknd's acknowledgement of what drugs will do. It becomes as strong and as terrible and losing ones personal beliefs and religion to addiction.

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.

14 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.

15 Addict - Silva Hound Addict - Silva Hound Cover Art

I really love this song and it is really catchy and this song deserves more attention than it has in their own fandom.

This song is very catchy and gives angel's character some deph

Best song of 2020 in my opinion

UNDERRATED SONG YES IT SHOWS ANGEL DUST'S BACKSTORY

16 Say So - Doja Cat Say So - Doja Cat Cover Art

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 take back everything I said about this song earlier.
I love this song.
And it's honestly not close enough to Fiona Coyne to be total plagiarism or anything. I apologize for my harsh accusation.

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.

If you know a lot about mainstream music, you’ll know that Dr Luke produced this song so it explains why it’s a catchy pop music. He’s credited under a different name. He’s one of the many top producers in pop music, and as you can see he has a bad reputation now which affects whether people will like the music he produces.

17 Don't Start Now - Dua Lipa Don't Start Now - Dua Lipa Cover Art

Her best since "New Rules," this song truly solidifies Dua Lipa is the ranks of the best pop singers out there.

She has got a good voice and a nice tune

This song is good, but it's from 2019.

I just listen to her all the time

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

Porter Robinson is my favorite EDM artist (barely ahead of deadmau5 and TheFatRat) and he delivered here in his first self named release in 5 years.
He has always had the ability to make Japanese style electronica projects work out and here is a superb example.
I don't like this as much as Mirror, but we all know this song is something special.

Welcome back Porter as you return from your Virtual Self. 👍

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!

This song is beautifully gorgeous. Can't wait for Nurture to drop.

Looks like Virtual Self has gone into a permanent hibernation.

19 Out of Luck - Tokyo Rose, Pylot, and Essenger Out of Luck - Tokyo Rose, Pylot, and Essenger Cover Art
20 Supalonely - BENEE Supalonely - BENEE Cover Art

So relatable in 2020, and paints an interesting portrait of someone whose loneliness has damaged their self-image and created a sorrowful complacency

This is one of my favorite songs atm. During quarantine, I felt lonely because I can't hang out with anyone.

When you found out this song got popular because of Tik Tok

best tiktok song of the year, its not upon debate

21 Darkness - Eminem Darkness - Eminem Cover Art

Definitely brave of Eminem to tackle such a recent tragedy like this, but it is a really good song

Great song up until his political BS at the end

22 Cardigan - Taylor Swift Cardigan - Taylor Swift Cover Art

This is the closest song of 2020 that got me into tears.
I had only liked about 2 Swift songs (Style, The Archer) a lot and the rest were hit or miss or just plain trash (Ready For It..., Look What You Made Me Do, You Need to Calm Down, I Knew You Were Trouble).

But then I reviewed this album.
I was blown away at how good it was.
Exile, my tears ricochet, The1,. epiphany, The last great American Dynasty were all fantastic tracks and at least one of them will make my year end top 50 list rank.

But Cardigan is the piece that touched me deep in an emotion that only a few rare songs can ever do. Cardigan did it at a level greater than the rest and I am almost in tears writing this out.
The piano chords and repetition, Taylor's soft and lovely vocals, and the thought provoking lyrics, all of this adds up to one of my favorite songs of the year.

A good lead single from Taylor for once. I really like this and it fits so well with the rest of the album, it's also the most pop of any of the songs on "Folklore'

I'm not really a Taylor swift fan, but this is really a nice song, better than her previous songs, "Lover", "you need to come down" which are overrated by the way, but am really satisfied with with this song and the album

I understand why this debuted at no. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

23 After Hours - The Weeknd After Hours - The Weeknd Cover Art

6 minutes of chilling vocals and disjointed presence. It's very Kiss land style.

This is hauntingly chilling on a creepy level.

Very experimental song, I love how it transitions and the beat kicks in. I’d love to hear this in the club.

24 Good News - Mac Miller Good News - Mac Miller Cover Art

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

25 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

it's a great song
