The lists will probably start rolling out in couple weeks, so I thought I'd make one more final attempt before I'm highly influenced by the AM consensus. This is a very quick and rough draft, and I still don't feel like I have more than 30 songs worth mentioning. I do hope my top 10 all perform well on the year end lists though.

01. The greatest, Lana Del Rey
02. Heads Gonna Roll, Jenny Lewis
03. Harmony Hall, Vampire Weekend
04. bad guy, Billie Eilish
05. Seventeen, Sharon Van Etten
06. Too Much, Carly Rae Jepsen
07. Not, Big Thief
08. Cruel Summer, Taylor Swift
09. Don't Know How To Keep Loving You, Julia Jacklin
10. Forgotten Eyes, Big Thief
11. Lover, Taylor Swift
12. You Ain't the Problem, Michael Kiwanuka
13. Cattails, Big Thief
14. U (Man Like), Bon Iver
15. Everyday, Weyes Blood
16. Julien, Carly Rae Jepsen
17. All Mirrors, Angel Olsen
18. Hey, Ma, Bon Iver
19. 7 rings, Ariana Grande
20. Summer Girl, Haim
21. Century, Big Thief
22. This Life, Vampire Weekend
23. hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have - but I have it, Lana Del Rey
24. Lark, Angel Olsen
25. UFOF, Big Thief
26. Didn't Know What I Was In For, Better Oblivion Community
27. Rylan, The National
28. Redesigning Women, The Highwomen
29. Borderline, Tame Impala
30. Now That I Found You, Carly Rae Jepsen

I know i'm late to the party, but I just listened to "Bags" by Clairo multiple times, due to it's high position on the EOY songs spreadsheet so far. I had never listened to Clairo's music before (although I had heard of her), but now it seems like i'm going to have to dig deeper into her discography. "Bags" is the greatest guitar-driven rock track i've heard since "Your Best American Girl" blasted through my speakers in March 2016, and it's instantly become one of my favorite songs of the year. I wish I had heard this song earlier :mrgreen:

The heartache in "Bags" is evident in the atmospheric guitar playing and melancholic piano, which flow like a river throughout the song. Clairo's soft vocals, which recall artists such as Mitski and Snail Mail (but is yet unique in it's own singular elements) give the song a convincing and emotional pleading for things not to fall apart, with a hope still put forward that those things are still worth saving. Hearing this song is like watching time fade away, knowing that while it's inevitable, it has to move forward. And you know why? Because that's how life works. This simple theory is applied in the style of a break-up anthem, because eventually for all of us, we see ourselves finding someone or something that walks out the door with their bags. And trust me, i know what it's like to keep certain feelings bottled up inside, mainly due to the fear of being ridiculed - or in the words of Clairo, "you'd make fun of me". I also know what it's like to stare at the TV for hours just to keep those things bottled up inside. This is a song which is important because of it's ability to portray a singular thought, which can represent so many different events we have no control of. Bedroom pop turns existential!

It looks like i'm gonna have to check out the entire album soon, because I was blown away by this track. I'm sure many people on this Forum have already heard it (i've already seen forumers put it in their lists), but if you haven't, then this is definitely a must-listen.

My list will look completely different if I include Prince songs released this year from the vault. Holy moly - it's a goldmine.

Hear hear! "Bags" is bedroom pop at its finest. I just adore the addition of piano in the second half of the song.

This might change in the coming weeks, but I wanted to get a list out there. I'm happy to see two other top-five placements for home with you. The end of the song is breathtakingly beautiful, and it's extremely unique overall. I'm glad MAGDALENE is getting so much love, but I'm surprised Sad Day is the second-most acclaimed song from it. I think all the songs I listed here are miles better. And sorry Nassim, Fox just missed the cut for me, but still a good recommendation!
