The Best Songs of 2018
The number of new songs released every day makes creating a list like this an act of madness. Even compared to the ever-growing stockpile of TV shows that appear on cable and streaming services or the amount of movies that debut in theaters and on Netflix, songs are nearly infinite. By the time you finish reading this paragraph, a teenage rapper might have just dropped the next viral hit. A veteran pop star might have returned with a new single. Your favorite indie band from high school might've just gotten back together.
We know: There's too much going on and there's no way to hear everything. Think of the list below as a companion piece to our best albums list and start listening. (Click song titles to hear each track or check out the Spotify playlist below.)
