This year has been a challenge for all of us and we were lucky enough to have such tremendous records on our side to comfort us in difficult times. From gentle melancholia, to raging fury - the albums of 2020 had a lot of stories to tell and these are the ones our staff enjoyed the most. If you haven't listened to all of them you now got a whole lockdown winter ahead of you to do that.
What a freakin' year this has been! This sentence might be more true than at any moment in the past years. The Corona pandemic had a massive impact on pretty much all of our lives, the music industry and quite possibly also the rest of society. In the absence of live music events the songs and records that were released remained an anchor and provided much needed comfort in a difficult time. These are our fifty favourite tracks from this rollercoaster ride called 2020.
Reflection time, girls and boys. As the year is heading for its final moments we take a moment to look back on the best songs of 2019. These are the fifty tunes you should definitely know before this decade ends, so hurry up and have a listen.

It simply can't be but these are the songs you should definitely give a spin before the decade is over. The Top 25 tunes include classics by Tame Impala, Bon Iver, Robyn, M83, Lorde, James Blake and more.
