The Top 40 Songs of 2020

The Top 40 Songs of 2020

The tracks that defined this bizarre year!

2020 was a big year for obvious reasons, and while it hasn’t been the kindest year, it has been a stellar year for music.

As you might guess from the title of this article, the focus of this list is music that was massively popular — songs that ruled the charts, went viral on social media, or otherwise blew up in a big way. The best songs of 2020 provided a brief escape from the turmoil happening outside. They offered comfort when we needed it most, helped soothe our anxiety, and acted as a temporary substitute for the dancefloors, concerts, and parties the pandemic stole from us. Until the day we get to gather again with friends and family without the gloom and shadow of the pandemic hovering over us, we’ll keep playing these songs to soundtrack what has been the strangest year of our lives.

That said, sit back and enjoy Jeremy White’s countdown of the biggest songs from one of the most unforgettable years.
