My Favorite Songs of 2021

Here’s some stuff to add to your playlists. Like my favorite albums, this wide net of songs surprised, amazed, and exhilarated me. And had me spending an irresponsible number of hours watching the videos on YouTube.

MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE COULD NOT GET ENOUGH OF IT SONG OF THE YEAR

Gabriels Love and Hate in a Different Time[1]

Sir Elton John said this is “probably one of the most seminal records I’ve heard in the last 10 years.” Who am I to disagree?[2]

EXCEPT FOR THE ABOVE, ANY ONE OF THESE COULD HAVE BEEN MY FAVORITE SONG OF THE YEAR

Amethyst Kiah Black Myself (cover of her own song as part of Native Daughters)
