Last year, I curated a playlist of my top songs of 2020. Now, as we ring in the new year, it’s time to dig into the songs I couldn’t stop listening to in 2021. Operating under one (loose) rule, all the songs on this playlist were released in 2021.
In a year dominated by isolation, loss and immense change, music was one of the few means that allowed us to escape from reality. I curated a playlist of 20 songs – of various genres – that helped me power through this historical year; operating under one rule: the songs had to be released during 2020.
