AOTY 2021

AOTY's New Years Send-off Songs of 2020

2020 has been a huge roadblock, a year that a lot of people would want to forget. Filled with hardships and pain. As this year is coming to a close, I wanted to ask a question for a list. What song would you listen to, to end the year off entirely? It can either be a send-off song, or a song that you would listen to in high hopes for 2021.

Happy New Years everyone! Thank you for helping with the list!

Joji - Nectar

@MattsReviews [ME] and @CrazyCrusher's pick (Ew)

This is my favorite song of the year, and I do not know why. I feel like the demented ending would just be a great way to end 2020 with, just fitting to me.
Phoebe Bridgers - I Know the End

8.
@eliiscool5's pick (LONG SEASON). Also adds "A song that feels like a long dream, it starts with a bit of sadness, and ultimately transitioning into optimism, I hope that this goes to all of us, with sadness being left behind, and having optimism in the new dawn. Also the fact that this is a brilliant song."
Porter Robinson - Nurture
9.

@SMTCubes and @Riskr's pick (Look At The Sky)

SMTCubes also adds "This song is about, despite having struggles and despite life having been easy in the past ("But then something must have changed in me / I used to feel so light"), still keeping hope that things will get better and that you will, eventually, "make something good", even if all the signs in the world seem to point the other direction. So, in ways, this is both a sendoff song of 2020 and a song of hope for 2021, that it truly will be better than this dumpster fire of a year."
Eminem - Music to Be Murdered By - Side B
