Favorite Music of 2018

As everyone knows, I am a music snob. Below is my list of favorite music released this year. It is not comprehensive and I know many great songs have been left off. But these are songs I listened to time and again, and defined the sound for the latter half of 2018.

The songs are in no particular order, except when I thought to scratch down the song as one I really liked. Gorillaz and Kacey Musgrave hold top honors as 2 of my absolute favorites on the year.

Now, I could have made a Spotify list, but admittedly I do not have an account and do not feel up to messing with getting one at the moment.
