Tonight, we run down the TOP 22 SONGS OF 2020. Why “22”? It just so happens that on this show, we pretty much always play 22 songs per episode and that formula has worked quite well for this first year on air. So after much deliberation, the thing to do became obvious. Our regular 22 song episode, but assembled into a COUNTDOWN of the most important tracks released in this past year. What makes a song important? Our host, GOBS, gets into that as we climb towards that #1 spot.
On this show in which we play ALL GENRES of music, we absolutely agonize over the play lists, so you can bet some serious conversations and considerations went down. In the end, Gobs went with his gut and arrived at this list of the 22 best tunes released in 2020. You’ll be hearing CANADIAN sounds from ARIEL SHARRATT & MATHIAS KOM, DESTROYER, E.L.F., JESSY LANZA, JUNIA-T & FAIZA, PANTAYO, PARAGON CAUSE, PAUL CHIN ft SHAD, and THE WEEKND, with big hitters from ARCA, BEYONCE, CARDI B, DAN DEACON, IDLES, KID BLOOM, THE KILLERS, MEGAN THEE STALLION, PHOEBE BRIDGERS, PROTOMARTYR, and RUN THE JEWELS. Wow, what a list! Where else would you hear all these acts in one jam-packed hour? ONLY MIDNIGHT LOOMS.
You could peak at the PLAYLIST below, but that would spoil the fun, so we hope. instead, you’ll press PLAY and enjoy this final JOURNEY-BY-DJ of 2020. Terrible year! But the music was AWESOME!!
