It’s only when you reflect on the past 12 months that you realise the sheer volume of good music that was released in 2018. I decided to expand my list of songs from 10 to 20 this time around, thinking it would make selecting tracks for this post easier, but ironically it actually made it harder! After much difficulty, I was finally able to compile a list that I was happy with.

In no particular order, here are my top 20 favourite songs of 2018!
