Songs That Perfectly Describe the Year 2020I think we can all agree that 2020 is basically Hell. These songs mostly reflect the social issues of coronavirus, the George Floyd riots and those guys who are constantly on the news because they took down a statue of [insert name here], but there are obvious annual occurrences too, and if 2020 has more problems, feel free to point them out, or if the year improves, submit more optimistic songs, (for instance "Getting Better" by the Beatles.)
The Top Ten
I figured I'd start out with a simple song that is kind of ironically called "20/20 - Survivor" because at this point, surviving 2020 is a miracle.
I just wish people wouldn't slack so much about Covid.
2020 has been ass so far so I'm grateful I survived it.
Put it in whatever context you want, but Help! seems fitting for every social issue put in the description of this list
Much like Help!, Livin' On a Prayer is fitting for COVID-19, the riots, and the removal of statues.
because we are all living on a prayer right now
At this point, this song sums up 2020 in three words. The Rolling Stones are so optimistic.
Like I said on that list, this is what coronavirus literally is.
Another Coronavirus anthem. What a great year 2020 is.
Those rioters were exactly this. I envy you if you live elsewhere.
In other words, rioters.
A pretty universal feeling as of 2020. I don't think I know a single soul who wasn't in misery during quarantine.
yes whoever put this song on here. you are so right
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.
we can't stop believin because if we do it's all over
that's kind of cold
With the whole world falling apart around us, it seems some things never change, and that is our tendency for violence. This song is for those who wish for unity and understanding among fellow humans, who are all going through the same tough times.
Well, there was a fire in Australia.
I'll be honest, the Australian Bushfires completely slipped my mind when I added this song. That's just how crazy of a year it's been.
Yeah, everything kinda does suck, to put it bluntly.
Exactly. Couldn’t describe it better
Although this was obviously submitted for COVID-19, it's got a more personal meaning for me. (My sister's ex's sister died this Friday and my great aunt died yesterday.)
Wake me up when 2020 ends. (But if- and God forbid this- if 2021 sucks as much as 2020 has, let me sleep my life away.)
2020 IS a disaster valley
to me the whole world is toxic if one thing doesn't kill you the next thing will it is so sad
That's a depressing spin on the world, but actually true enough.
For when the world is properly reunited with their loved ones.
Bushfires in Australia...
