As I have done for quite a few years now, I’ve made a list of my top 100 songs of the year.
Note that while many of these song were released in the last year (2019 or late 2018), there are some much older songs. The criteria isn’t necessarily that the songs be new (or even new to me), just that they were discovered, re-discovered or had some special meaning to me in 2019.
Unlike previous years, I don’t have a “top 10 albums list” this year. There definitely were some great albums this year, and they’re reflected in my top 100 song choices. However, with the duties of fatherhood (my daughter is 18 months old as I write this), I just didn’t have the time to make a formal list this year.
