My Favourite Songs Of The Month

Honestly this month was ridiculous in terms of both quantity and quality, one of the most impressive months ever. As a result I’m going to split this month into ‘Top 25 album tracks’ which will be my 25 favourite songs from the albums I listened to, and ‘Top 25 Loosies’ which will be my 25 favourite songs that didn’t appear on albums I listened to.

My Monthly Summary

As I mentioned earlier, I overall think January was an amazing month. I could easily make a quality ‘top 50 songs of 2020’ list with the songs from January alone. My favourite albums from the month were the albums from Moneybagg Yo, Quando Rondo, Lil Wayne, Eminem & Mick Jenkins, roughly in that order. In terms of singles and loosies this month was ridiculous too, with a cascade of quality releases from artists of all different styles and backgrounds. In the end there were around 140 songs in January that I rate really highly.

One other little thing I wanted to note is that we have had some great Soundtrack sounds released in the last month. I felt 2018 was the year of amazing soundtracks with amazing soundtracks for movies such as Black Panther, Creed, Superfly and Spiderman, but 2019 barely had any good soundtrack songs (which just strengthens my point 2018 was the year). So it was good to see some good form in that regard, with the most notable being the Bad Boys 2 soundtrack, and there also being some great songs from ‘Birds of Prey’ & the upcoming Sonic movie.

What were your favourite songs and albums of January?

What are you looking forward to in February?

Thanks For Reading!
