Here’s Every One of My Year-End Lists For 2019

Happy New Year everyone! Before the afterglow of List Season 2019 wears off, I figured it’d be helpful – for those of you who don’t feel like watching me talk for 45 minutes straight – to round up all of my 2019 lists in one place. After all, the whole point of List Season is to turn you guys onto anything you might’ve missed the previous year, and the early January lull that we’re in right now is a perfect time to catch up!

Compiled here for your convenience are all five of my year-end lists for 2019. Here’s to a great year and I can’t wait to do this all over again in another 12 months!

10 Songs that Defined 2019 For Me

Year-End List Number TWO! This is definitely the most personal and emotionally-driven list for me to make. These are the ten songs that, for the rest of my life, will instantly pop into my head anytime the year 2019 is mentioned. This was my soundtrack to the good, the bad, and the ugly of the past twelve months.

Oh, and I got to make fun of Taylor Swift too. Even though I cut her from the list.

Top 15 Favorite Songs: Q4 2019

What’s up guys! Time for the final 2019 installment of my quarterly Favorite Songs segment, where I pick apart the tracks that have soundtracked my life for the past three months. As I note in the video, this stuff is mostly from October and November, since December was such a ghost town for new music this year! Seriously, unless you wanted to listen to One Direction solo albums or Drake saying the word “ting” over and over again or (God forbid) The Chainsmokers, there wasn’t much for you to check out during the holiday season.

As usual, there is an accompanying Spotify playlist with ten additional honorable mentions, which you can find here. Artists discussed in this one include Cigarettes After Sex, The Weeknd, Yelawolf, Tame Impala and more! Check out the video below and I’ll be back real soon with my Year-End Lists!

Top 15 Favorite Songs: Q3 2019

Another three months gone by, another Favorite Songs list! This really might be my best one yet. I feel like there’s a song on here for everybody’s palette. Artists discussed include BJ the Chicago Kid, Banks, Rick Ross, Taylor Swift (yes, Taylor Swift) and much more!

And as always, here is the accompanying Spotify playlist if you want the full sh-bang (how do you properly spell that? Schbang? Sch-Bang?) with ten additional honorable mentions. Check out my remarks on the Top 15 below:
