Favorite Songs of 2018

Here’s a list of my top songs for this year, in an order that might be surprisingly mixable. These are not necessarily from 2018; I just happened to have heard them in the last twelve months.

Never Enough, by Loren Allred on The Greatest Showman (Soundtrack)
Sorry, by Halsey on Hopeless Fountain Kingdom
Feel Alive, by Katie Herzig on Moment of Bliss
No Roots, by Alice Merton on No Roots EP
It’s Not Just Me, by Let’s Eat Grandma on I’m All Ears
Babies, by Tracey Thorn on Record
Cycles, by Tove Lo on Blue Lips
Delicate, by Taylor Swift on Reputation
Woodland, by The Paper Kites on Woodland & Young North EP
I Get Overwhelmed, by Dark Rooms on A Ghost Story (Soundtrack)
28, by Lorene Scafaria on Garden Party EP
Somebody New, by The Struts on Young & Dangerous
The River, by KT Tunstall on Wax
Hold Out Your Hand, by Brandi Carlile on By the Way, I Forgive You
The Winner Takes It All, by Cher on Dancing Queen
Capital Letters, by Hailee Steinfeld X Bloodpop on Fifty Shades Freed (Soundtrack)
Brave, by Sara Bareilles on The Blessed Unrest
Trade Hearts (feat. Julia Michaels), by Jason Derulo on Everything Is 4
Need You Now, by Lady Antebellum on Need You Now
Most of All, by Steve Perry on Traces
At This Moment, by Billy Vera and the Beaters on Billy and the Beaters

Which one was the best? I think it’s too close a call between Loren Allred’s soaring Never Enough and the always-melancholy Tove Lo’s Cycles. Both are delightfully painful tunes.
