Top 50 Songs of 2019

The Top 50 Songs of 2019

Me every year: Nope, fuck lists, I'm not doing it this year. Also me every year: Here is my list. Yes, there are several songs that I enjoyed in 2019. And like last year, I can't settle on ranking those songs - partly because I feel like everyone deserves equal shine, Mean Girls Spring Fling Queen…


Top 10 Songs of 2018

The Top 60 Songs of 2018

The year is almost over, and I still loathe lists. In fact, I sat down to do this about seven times and simply couldn't do it. So...I won't. And you can't make me! Instead, I'm choosing to take you through a very cool, urban and interesting journey through my favorite songs of the year in no real…


MuuMuse Top 10 2018

The Top 10 Albums of 2018

Merry Listmas, Merry Britmas and a Happy Hanukkah to you and yours. The year is (mostly) over. Pop music is (mostly) dead. And now, I present to you: the MuuMuse Top 10 of 2018. As a reminder, these are the records that stuck with me throughout the year - for various reasons. I don't care who…


The Top Songs of 2017 MuuMuse

The Top 20 Songs of 2017

Surprise: I'm breaking with tradition. As opposed to doing a complete Top 100 Singles list as I've done for the past almost-decade or so (today is the ten year anniversary of MuuMuse, by the way), I've decided to take a different approach. Not because there aren't more than enough good songs out…


The Top 100 Singles of 2016

Surprise: I didn't feel like dealing with the stress of putting my favorite 50 songs of the year in some arbitrary order as I've done for the past several years — so I put 100 songs in some arbitrary order instead. The ranking is whatever, because I think all these songs equally deserve lots of…


Top 20 Albums of 2016 MuuMuse

The Top 20 Albums of 2016

2016 is nearly over. I think I can speak of behalf of a majority of the public when I say: thank fucking God. Music was a crucial distraction in a year so frequently dominated by sorrow, anger and faded hopes and crushed dreams. The moodiness of the songs released throughout the year suggests that…


The Top 50 Singles of 2015

Well! Here we go again. I worked my way through the Top 20 Albums of 2015 last week. And now, it's time to twirl right through the singles. This list is always way more fun to put together than the albums because I get to squeeze in more artists, although the ranking starts to feel especially…


The Top 20 Albums of 2015

Well, here we go. 2015 has been quite a year — personally, professionally and pop culturally speaking. I lived! I loved! I laughed! Actually, I mostly cried, because like a certain Canadian songbird, I have all of these E•MO•TIONs. (FORESHADOWING.) Anyway! We're knee-deep in list season now, and…


The Top 50 Singles Of 2014

And now, the other list you've been waiting to argue about! Following the Top 20 Albums of 2014 list, it is now once again that time of year when we take a look back at some of the best, most #blessed singles released in the past eleven and a half-ish months (or earlier, if they only became a hit…


The Top 20 Albums of 2014

2014 is nearly over. (Thank God.) Accordingly, it is now that special time of year when we take a look back at some of the best, most #blessed records released in the past eleven and a half-ish months and then proceed to hem and haw over the exact order of their perceived greatness. As always,…


MuuMuse Presents: The Top 50 Singles of 2013

The time is now: Here are my Top 50 Singles of 2013. As always, all of the songs featured on the list were released as a single this year. I've tried to keep them all as "official" as possible, although the idea of the traditional "single" is rapidly becoming a grey area in music — a conversation…


MuuMuse Presents: The Top 20 Albums of 2013

It's the most wonderful time of the year again: A time to bicker, moan and fight about the year's most high profile releases and underrated gems. That's right — it's list season! Looking back, 2013 may very well go down as the Year of the Underdog in pop music. There's no doubt that, across the…
