Top 10 Best Songs of 2021

The Top Ten
1 Anyone - Justin Bieber Anyone - Justin Bieber Cover Art

I want to hate this song. Really bad. Anything coming out of Justin Bieber is enough to turn me off. But I begrudgingly gave this song a try and I will admit I was pleasantly surprised. It's better than ANYTHING on his latest album. His vocal performance on this track is amazing, especially at the chorus, despite the production being a little bloated in my opinion. Just when I thought JB was becoming a gimmick, he comes out with this song and proves me wrong. I hope this will be his new direction.

Might be my favorite song from him, even though I don't like him. I give it a 9/10.

This song is surprisingly good. It is probably Justin's best song yet. 8/10

Justin Bieber finally made a decent song yay. 7/10

2 Leave The Door Open - Bruno Mars, Anderson.Paak & Silk Sonic Leave The Door Open - Bruno Mars, Anderson.Paak & Silk Sonic Cover Art

Damn, this song is so insanely good! It has great 70s vibes without sounding like a pastiche. Bruno's vocals are excellent just like Anderson's. Just when I thought Bruno Mars would be declining, he comes back and blows me off the ceiling with a collaboration that turns out to be a match made in heaven. Welcome back Bruno! I can't wait to see what the Silk Sonic album will be.

I'm not that much into soul but this song is insanely glossy, lush, & well-crafted. Welcome back Bruno, 10/10.

This seriously gives me 70s/80s soul vibes. I love it. Did I mention that Bruno Mars gives me Prince vibes?

Bruno is back! I'm in love with this song; hope to see more music like this in the new album.

3 No Son of Mine - Foo Fighters No Son of Mine - Foo Fighters Cover Art

First thing I thought when I read the title and heard the first chord is that it would be a cover of a Genesis song, but you would be totally wrong to think so because this song SLAPS... HARD! It's great to hear FF again, I hope the album will be just as good, if not better.

Oh thank god, this is so much better than "Shame Shame", this is a return to form for the Foo Fighters.

This is easily the best single that they've released so far for their new album.

This is a good song

4 Drivers License - Olivia Rodrigo Drivers License - Olivia Rodrigo Cover Art

It just came out on January 8th & it outdid every other song in quality & everything. It's the great song of 2021 & truly the greatest in decades. Better than all the garbage playing & it's among the most heartbreaking songs ever made. This's up to Tears In Heaven by Eric Clapton & My Immortal by Evanescence given how sad it really is & that doesn't do justice for people who cry over sad songs. Yet it's upbeat, powerful, inspiring & emotional all at the same time. Yet it became the 1st song of 2021 to ever hit #1 on iTunes & the pop charts as well as anything. Take a hint guys. This is REAL music & not filled with drugs, sexual content or racism. A whole Lotta effort was put into it & it's like the 1st time in a decade a new artist released a great and powerful song in the mainstream (though her other & 1st song was made specifically for Disney Channel). Still can't believe an actress from a Disney Channel show like Bizzardvark would come up with a song that would take every other ...more

Teen pop has rarely been this emotional. You can see that this 17-year-old has put a lot of effort into this song. You can hear the pain in her vocals considering she was going through a painful breakup but at least she's not trying so hard to be melodramatic. This song is sweeping all competition and rightfully so, I'd rather have kids buying into this than rappers who promote drug use, sex, weapons or violence and objectify women or call them "bitches" or "hoes". I'm so glad a HEARTFELT song is set to be at #1. People who hate sad songs will likely be disappointed but this song is not stealing its success.

Great lyrics and very well produced. I feel that some of the parts are maybe a little too intense for my taste but it's only a minor flaw. Also she sounds a lot like Lorde in the second half but we haven't gotten any new music from Lorde in a long time so oh well.

This is a really good song, I think it's just as good as chemtrails over the country club by Lana del Rey
Update; I find it meh, it's not the best but not the worst and FAR too overrated

5 Waiting on a War - Foo Fighters Waiting on a War - Foo Fighters Cover Art

This shows that the Foo Fighters are still capable of making excellent songs. Lovely alternative ballad.

Hi, I am Myanmar. I like your songs.

6 L8r Boi - Ashnikko L8r Boi - Ashnikko Cover Art

Pretty funny remake of "Sk8r Boi" by Avril Lavigne. If you like creative sampling or covers, you should give it a listen!

7 Good 4 U - Olivia Rodrigo Good 4 U - Olivia Rodrigo Cover Art

Olivia Rodrigo surprised me again! She really kills it on this pop-punk song. It brings back to 2000s Avril Lavigne and Paramore without imitating them note for note. I am really looking forward to Olivia's debut album, I hope it will be as good as the singles she released.

Okay this song is so good! Olivia gets emotional and intense in this song, and I like music like that. One thing though, why is all her songs about breaking up?

I love Driver's License and Deja Vu is okay but this is absolutely terrible. I would sooner listen to Up than this.

It's actually pretty good. Much better than Driver's License, in my opinion.

8 All My Favourite Songs - Weezer All My Favourite Songs - Weezer Cover Art

You know what? This song isn't really bad at all. I like it more than the singles that were originally going to be on Van Weezer. I'm hyped for OK Human!

Great song by Weezer! It really gets me hyped for their next album.

9 Higher Power - Coldplay Higher Power - Coldplay Cover Art

Another great song by Coldplay. I was meh at first, but then when I saw their performance at the Brit Awards it grew on me.

One of my favorites

10 Montero (Call Me by Your Name) - Lil Nas X Montero (Call Me by Your Name) - Lil Nas X Cover Art

I don't listen to Lil Nas X at all other than this song, and I love it. I have really enjoyed seeing more LGBTQ people creating art, and even more, seeing it become mainstream. Not to mention, the song goes hard.

I'm not crazy about Lil Nas X but I think this song is interesting musically.

The Newcomers

? Плохая Сука - GONE.Fludd Плохая Сука - GONE.Fludd Cover Art
? Stay - The Kid LAROI & Justin Bieber Stay - The Kid LAROI & Justin Bieber Cover Art

This's the moment he stepped into exploring dance music for once & not only that, it's extremely upbeat for a song of his & since it was also a Justin Bieber song, it was both their most upbeat they've ever released. It was another example of artists bringing back 80's synth pop music which was unforgettable. The Kid Laroi was known for hip hop elements with tributes to Juice WRLD (R.I.P.), but this was a big change in his musical roots & rewrote the history books of his music in general. It's a big hit & it continues to climb.

The Contenders
11 Self Destructor - Chevelle Self Destructor - Chevelle Cover Art
12 Lo Vas a Olvidar - Billie Eilish & Rosalía Lo Vas a Olvidar - Billie Eilish & Rosalía Cover Art

This song should be fourth, my ranking:
3.Hold on
4.Lo vas a olvidar
5.Your power
7.leave the door oppen
8.Deserve you
drivers liscense

Although it's not my favorite Billie song, it's a great song!

This is a lot better than Billie's previous single Therefore I Am in my opinion. 7/10

Billie has too much autotune in the last verse.

13 Everytime I Cry - Ava Max Everytime I Cry - Ava Max Cover Art
14 Chemtrails Over the Country Club - Lana Del Rey Chemtrails Over the Country Club - Lana Del Rey Cover Art

This song is amazing! 10/10

15 Gone are the Days - Kygo Gone are the Days - Kygo Cover Art

One of the most beautiful and emotional songs that Kygo has ever done, which is saying something since he's the king of this sorta style of EDM

16 Techno Syndrome 2021 - Benjamin Wallfisch Techno Syndrome 2021 - Benjamin Wallfisch Cover Art
17 IDK - Gemini Syndrome IDK - Gemini Syndrome Cover Art
18 Astronaut in the Ocean - Masked Wolf Astronaut in the Ocean - Masked Wolf Cover Art

I'm mostly voting on my brothers half, but I like this song too.

19 Pictures - AACACIA Pictures - AACACIA Cover Art

Soulful and tight...wonderful vocals. This is the best song of 2021 so far in my opinion

20 De Una Vez - Selena Gomez De Una Vez - Selena Gomez Cover Art

Nothing extraordinary, but she's headed in the right direction and definitely sounds better singing in Spanish. 6/10

Nothing special, but it's cute. 8/10. It's also pretty interesting to see Selena sing in spanish.

Selena Gomez singing in Spanish is better than Selena Gomez singing in English.

21 For the Glory - All Good Things For the Glory - All Good Things Cover Art
22 Only Love Can Save Me Now - The Pretty Reckless Only Love Can Save Me Now - The Pretty Reckless Cover Art
23 Roadtrip - Dream & PmBata Roadtrip - Dream & PmBata Cover Art
