The Sound of 2018

January 5th, 2019 Comments Off on The Sound of 2018

Another year, another top songs post. As I’ve been doing each year since 2013, I kept a playlist of stuff I listened to this year, whenever it was released, and I’ve distilled it down to my favorites (13 this year) and the ones that define the sound of the year for me. There weren’t really any strong themes this year; there was the usual retro-80s and techno, a brief foray into surf guitar, Janelle Monáe, and an unusual number of non-techno/non-retro pop in the favorites.

Here are my 13 best songs of 2018:
– Janelle Monáe – Make Me Feel
– DKMD – I’m Watching You
– James Curd, Annabel Weston – Think You Know
– Yoshinori Sunahara – Clipper’s Discoteque Break
– Dirtylover – Feel The Right
– Shocking Blue – Love Buzz
– Oliver Koletzki, HVOB – Bones
– Charlotte Gainsbourg – Deadly Valentine
– Salt-N-Pepa – Shoop
– Robots with Rayguns – Sweat It Out
– Telex – Second Hand
– New Order – Tutti Frutti (Takkyu Ishino Remix)
– Janelle Monáe, Grimes – Pynk
