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.

Wow bot, I never knew your planet had 120 countries because here on Earth, no one even knows him.

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.

Listening to Dimash is always rewarding. However, watching his performance live is an unforgettable experience. Live, he is even better! It is a rare quality in singers! Only those who have seen him live know how mesmerizing, impressive and overwhelming this magnificent young artist is!
He is a fantastic wizard of the great art of singing live.

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.

Pretty much his most honest song yet. Ozzy Osbourne has been around for so many years and he still manages to remain a legend.

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.

Marshall isn't exploiting Juice. He's trying to bring him back to life like Godzilla was.

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 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.

5 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!

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

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 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.

8 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.

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 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

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

Another James Bond jam hit sound track

The Newcomers

? We Belong - Dove Cameron We Belong - Dove Cameron Cover Art

Great song. Definitely one of my favourites of the year.

? Nothing for Free - Pendulum Nothing for Free - Pendulum 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 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 have done this TikTok dance about 20,000 times.

13 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!

14 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.

15 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!

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

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

Looks like Virtual Self has gone into a permanent hibernation.

16 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.

17 My Future - Billie Eilish My Future - Billie Eilish Cover Art

Billie Eilish and Finneas are the best duo in mainstream music right now. Billie's vocals are improving with every single song she releases, this is her best vocal performance since "When The Party's Over", she sounds incredible here. I am really excited for Billie's future in pop music if this is an example of what she can deliver.

Billie's songs keep getting better. At first I didn't think she Deserved 5 grammies but based on the songs this year she has definitely proven to deserve each and every one of them. Good Work Billie

This is so artistic and well made, get this to number 1

Awesome new song by Billie Eilish

18 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

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

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

21 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.

22 Good News - Mac Miller Good News - Mac Miller Cover Art

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

23 Night - ALITD

I saw all the comments, and while I know that this is a little too high, I can't complain.
Night is a fantastic electronica piece.
It's the 3rd song by a 16 year old who goes by AL!TD. (shame on whoever didn't put the ! instead of the I, lol)
While it's a good track, Cavern, The Mummer's Revival, The Darkest Depths, Starshine, and Wins Gush are all very good with a special shout out to 'The Darkest Depths'.
It's a shame that AL!TD has only a tiny following, because he exceeded my expectations.

Just like everyone on this post, Night is WAY better than Billie eyelash, dead Miller, Doja dummy, and all those crackhead artists.

Why?

Because Night is a fantastic EDM song. It has a creepy, repetetive synth that lasts for a bit, then pauses than goes out in a refreshing way that sounds like you just broke into a land of dark, moonlit paradise.

AND HE IS 16! HOW! How is this genius ONLY 16!

I just found out AL!TD.
He's just as good as everyone here says. He's brand new but his sound is fantastic.
"Night" is a piece that starts out steady and continues that way the entire time. It goes through wavelengths of synths and tone changes and sounds crisp and haunting throughout. Trust me, it's worth listening to.

8/10

I saw this earlier, but did not give this too much thought until I saw that the same artist that created the masterpiece, "The Mummer's Revival" did this also. So I clicked on this and I can safely say that this is well worth the listen.

24 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.

25 Compulsion - Meyo Compulsion - Meyo Cover Art

Meyo was all over AL!TD's channel, (he is a fan, I guess?) and have a theory that the same person who put AL!TD's songs did the same for Meyo.
I'm not complaining in the slightest as both artists are criminally underrated.

Artists like Meyo, AL!TD, and Myal may not have many hits or followers, but they all are very talented. I am glad that the TopTens exists, so that their music can be listened to by a larger audience.

Compulsion is the culmination of everything that is beautiful. Meyo is incredible as an underrated EDM artist.

Another great song that got buried under everything.
