Top Ten Songs That Most Perfectly Describe the Year 2021

Okay, this is not my most original idea for a list, but it seems to be trending to do things in 2021 early on, so we have the social issues of the January 6th "riot," North Korea putting America as their #1 enemy and the transition of powers. LET ME BE CLEAR: I don't want either man glorified or disgraced. Former President Donald J Trump became the President, and so did Joe Biden. Both deserve our respect (and one is not getting it from most of us.) If you have a song you want to add that you think is within reason for either man, run it by me first. Like last year, if there are other social issues, feel free to point them out.
The Top Ten
1 Screaming Goats - Cotton & Gin Screaming Goats - Cotton & Gin Cover Art

(Did you read the description? If not, please do so.) I'm sorry but last year, Screaming Goats was way too low. NOKO is putting America as their #1 enemy, I am terrified of what the rest of this year will bring. We're barely two months in and I am scared.

This was actually my top song on Spotify. It's fitting, but how does it qualify as a song?

This is a very good list.

that's hilarious. Came on here wondering what was going on and almost choked with laughter

2 Whole Town's Talkin' - Survivor Whole Town's Talkin' - Survivor Cover Art

(It annoys me how cheery this album cover is, and yet the occasion it represents is anything but cheery.) This is a more creative way to represent the January 6th riot. Trump supporters smell foul play and former President Donald Trump didn't ask us to attack the Capitol Building. I was not part of it, but we smell bad blood.

3 Here I Go Again - Whitesnake Here I Go Again - Whitesnake Cover Art

This one may seem kind of random, but here I go again, complaining about the year by using the music industry. I hate to admit it, but Alana was right about the people complaining about 2020 complaining about 2021, too.

4 Cold As Ice - Foreigner Cold As Ice - Foreigner Cover Art

This little Winter Wonderland we're all getting...It's getting better, but for the past three days, I hate to admit it 'cause I'm "Mr. Tough Guy" who has been in subzero weather, but I was freezing my butt off on the 14th, 15th, and 16th. This has sucked.

5 Tears in Heaven - Eric Clapton Tears in Heaven - Eric Clapton Cover Art

I know this was recycled from my "Songs that Perfectly Describe the Year 2020" list, but when you combine the meaning, that it's okay to grieve the loss of a loved one, with SamanthaRosie's list Top 10 Most Shocking Deaths of 2021, I am sorry, but while this is not the most creative submission, by my standards, it's too fitting to exclude.

6 Beautiful Drug - Bon Jovi Beautiful Drug - Bon Jovi Cover Art

This song ain't beautiful. It's better than average for the album, but I think we can all agree that it's a big relief to have a vaccine for coronavirus. The guy who was the harbinger of this event does not get his due credit, and probably will not get it any time soon, but hey, at least we got the vaccine, right?

7 Us and Them - Pink Floyd Us and Them - Pink Floyd Cover Art

Us and Them is kind of how I feel about the whole issue with North Korea threatening to build more nukes and making the United States their biggest enemy. I have a good idea of how we could have prevented this, but it's best I keep that to myself. Anyway, I'm kind of fearful of this.

8 Burning Heart - Survivor Burning Heart - Survivor Cover Art

This one may be a bit confusing. Sorry if this seems like I'm backpedaling on what I say in the description, but while I'm just a bystander, and frankly a politically exhausted one, I am looking at the political climate of the United States, and it seems "two worlds collide/rival nations" describes our nation pretty well.

9 Let It Be - The Beatles Let It Be - The Beatles Cover Art

I could leave this as "self-explanatory" if I wanted to, but just to clarify its inclusion, whether you supported President Biden or Former President Trump does not matter. President Biden won. This is directed to both parties. If you supported Biden and hate Former President Trump, let go of the hate. He's in your rearview mirror. If you supported Trump, accept the results, as there is nothing you can do about the results and the inauguration of President Biden. I feel everyone needs to just...let it be.

10 My Way - Frank Sinatra My Way - Frank Sinatra Cover Art

Technically this one is a Trump song. I am not getting partisan at all. The lyrics are fitting for his departure. So much so that it was the song that he played on his last ride on Air Force One. I can't say I'd be surprised if I were to find out My Way is Former President Trump's favorite song. This is also pretty close to being a placeholder.

Just letting you know there is a list of music artists Donald Trump has claimed to like and Frank Sinatra is pretty high on it so yeah it wouldn’t be that surprising.

The Contenders
11 American Idiot - Green Day American Idiot - Green Day Cover Art

Okay, we're gonna set this up as a song about the January 6th incident. Next time, read the description.

12 Hey God - Bon Jovi Hey God - Bon Jovi Cover Art

Hey God, why did you have to take Rush Limbaugh?

13 Winner Takes It All - Sammy Hagar Winner Takes It All - Sammy Hagar Cover Art
14 Riot - Three Days Grace Riot - Three Days Grace Cover Art
