The first half of this songs list had me excited with some deeper cuts like Sharon Van Etten's "Love More", Angel Olsen's "Mirrors", and Julien Baker's "Rejoice", but the top 50 leaned way too hard into the pop and giving the number one to "Hotline Bling" is just disgraceful.

Hotline Bling is one of the greatest songs of all time, imo. I don’t understand the hate imo :?
