DECADE IN REVIEW: The top 200 songs of the 2010s

The 2010s are coming to an end, and to celebrate I’ve put together a playlist of my 200 favorite songs from the past 10 years.

If you read my 102 best albums of the decade list, you’ll notice some familiar faces on this playlist. You’ll also find some well known artists, some one hit wonders, some extremely popular tracks and some more obscure ones. There were no rules to making this list, other than the songs included had to have been released between 2010 and 2019. And the songs are in order from best to…less best (they’re all very good songs).

To view the list, scroll to the end of this article.
