Best Songs of 2018

Recommended Posts

A few of you chaps have these track list threads which encourage the viewer to post a list of your favourite songs, but only one song per artist. I like it - it's cool. But I had a thirst to share my favourite songs of the year; no holds barred. If an artist is good enough to have multiple inclusions, so be it. It's been a okay year for albums, but a fantastic year for great songs. These are the top 25 songs of 2018 for me;

Sorry doods... for the fuck of me I cannot post lists with this Macbook - no idea why. But that's just how it comes out. :(

I wonder if anyone else apart from Gotthardline dug this song as much as me. Very moving tune for me;

 

And if 2018 had an anthem, for me, this was it;

 

This hooked a few people in another thread, but if you were one of the ones that missed out;

 

And if there was a one-hit wonder in 2018... it was these guys;

 

Surprise package of the year;

 

Well, except for this one, which is so out of character (and awesome) and I wish it was the Adelitas Way sound for the future;

 

And this super catchy number;

 

And the winners that y'all know anyway;

I love that You Me At Six song too... shame it was the only decent song on there. :( Striker and Don Vedda were good for me too.

I don't mind 3 or 4 other songs on it but it is a shame what that band has become  , they used to be very reliable for a solid album

That Summer wars song is very nice btw , was there an album worth checking out ?

Yeah, I've been a big fan of You Me At Six but they seem to have less and less great songs on their albums as they go along. 

The Summer Wars recording is only an EP called 'Borrowed Time' and yes, it's well worth checking out if you like that song. That's the best on there, easily, imo, but I like all six songs on it.

If you like songs with poignant lyrics and vibe, it's a great EP. A couple of my other favourites from it;

Haha, no worries and very glad to help out when/if I can. We definitely seem to have very, very similar taste, and that's a fantastic collection of songs both past and present. :) That Donots album was a great one... shame what happened to them over the years. 

I think I posted this elsewhere, but here was my list. In all honesty, as I play back the songs from 2018 into the new year, I think 'Worship' is probably my favourite song from 2018 too. Just perfection. But as it was at the end of 2018, this was my list;


1    .    Midnite City     -    You Don't Understand Me
2    .    LeBrock     -    Real Thing
3    .    LeBrock     -    Runaway
4    .    Summer Wars     -    End of an Era
5    .    Deaf Havana     -    Worship
6    .    Midnite City     -    Give Me Love
7    .    Heartwind     -    Your Eyes Cannot Lie
8    .    Midnite City     -    Tonight You're All I Need
9    .    Dallas     -    Open Your Heart
10    .    Secrets     -    Fourteen
11    .    Swedish Funk Connection     -    This Love Will Last Forever
12    .    Gioeli, Castronovo     -    Through
13    .    As It Is     -    The Fire, The Dark
14    .    Adelitas Way     -    Get It On
15    .    Ted Poley     -    Gypsy At Heart
16    .    7 Days In Alaska     -    Hey Girl
17    .    Magic Dance     -    These Four Walls
18    .    Creye     -    Desperately Lovin'
19    .    Creye     -    All We Need Is Faith
20    .    Dallas     -    Close My Eyes
21    .    Creye     -    Christina
22    .    Creye     -    Straight To The Top
23    .    Care of Night     -    Your Perfection
