    OMA’s 2018 Songs of the Year

    Apologies if this thread already exists but this is intended as a companion to the Albums of the Year thread. Every year I do a top 20 but this is my expanded version with 50 songs, basically limited to 1 song per primary artist (though I fudged it a little) otherwise artists like Ariana, Robyn, Mitski and many others would have several songs on here. Also, 50 is a lot so as a preview, here were my top 15 most played songs.

    1. Troye Sivan - “My My My!”
    2. Jack Antonoff ft. MØ - “Never Fall In Love”
    3. Kylie Minogue - “Stop Me From Falling”
    4. Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper - “Shallow”
    5. Ariana Grande - “no tears left to cry”
    6. Camila Cabello - “Never Be the Same”
    7. Christina Aguilera - “Unless It’s With You”
    8. Robyn - “Honey”
    9. Years & Years - “Sanctify”
    10. St. Vincent - “Fast Slow Disco”
    11. Mitski - “Geyser”
    12. Janelle Monae - “I Like That”
    13. Calvin Harris ft. Dua Lipa - “One Kiss”
    14. Maggie Rogers - “Fallingwater”
    15. Beach House - “Pay No Mind”

    Here’s the full 50! Spotify playlist:

    can’t wait to hear your lists.

    I’m usually more album-oriented than song-oriented, but here’s a top three:

    1. “Nobody” by Mitski
    2. “Pristine” by Snail Mail
    3. “Buck Me Off” by Speedy Ortiz

    Yes, I will be in the Best Album thread soon. Don’t expect any surprises for the top three in there.
    And it's going to be how do we think government should work and who do we think government should work for?
