Songs Year in Review

MusicNewsRumor’s 85 Best Songs of 2021

I’m changing things up this year. A song that might be sitting in my Top 3 one day might not even crack my Top 10 the next week or next month. So, like everything else in 2021, I threw the “rules” out the window, and my year-end lists are all going to be sorted alphabetically.
