Credit to the amazing @supaspazfor this graphic which, in its own way, encapsulates the beauty and chaos of the past year.

 

A year in which there was no real dominating force - 2021's biggest breakthrough artist is arguably for two generations max! 2021's most viral hitmaker also has serious... drawbacks! 2021's most dominant musical headliner generator - too much of a gimmick? I would let you decide... but you already did. 

 

A huge thank you to the voters who knowingly contributed: 

And a huge thank you to those who didn't even know about this! Hopefully you'll stick around. 

 

We'll be starting the the close calls - the ten or so songs that just missed the top 50.

I assume the first is Doja, but the second could be her, too?

If traitor made it into the list, it means probably all of her 3 singles will be in the top 50 as well

Won't be the last time you'll see either... by a long shot.

 

But definitely the last time you'll see Wolf Alice...

 

 

 

Wolf Alice, "Smile"

traitor just missed - but she pops up. A lot. 

 

Utada doesn't. But thank you @TRF.for listing Utada so high - I fell in love.

 

 

Utada Hikaru, "One Last Kiss"

These two hurt as they make my year end; the latter is my second favorite of the year.

 

Luckily my favorite does very well here.

 

 

 

Sharon Van Etten & Angel Olsen, "Like I Used To"

 

Wizkid, "Essence" (featuring Tems)

Oh wow. This was on my list too!
 

Sharon showing up by surprise during Angel's P4K set is one of my favorite 2021 memories.

Yes you were one of the ones who got it this far!

 

The last song that almost made it? Number 51?

Don't forget her best single, "Brutal." That's the one I voted for!

So it seems we will have Olivia x4... let's call her queen of ATRL's 2021 already :cm:
