2019 has been a year filled with incredible music. As we’re nearing the end of the year and getting closer to the start of a new decade, it’s been a trend on Twitter to share your top 50 songs from the last 10 years. I thought I’d simplify that and share with you a collection of my favorite 2019 tracks, which, by the way, are predominately and unapologetically pop.

1) Gone by Charli XCX

“I feel so unstable, fucking hate these people
How they’re making me feel lately
They’re making me weird baby”

2) Don’t Go Changing by Aly & AJ

“Just don’t go changing on me, babe
Physical healing
Why don’t we dance away your fear of love?”

3) Yours by Greyson Chance

“No matter who I’m with, it’s you that I adore
If you’re not sure, baby I’m yours”

4) I’m So Tired… by Lauv

“Strangers
Killing my lonely nights with strangers
And when they leave, I go back to our song, I hold on”

5) Mothers Daughter by Miley Cyrus

“Oh my God, she got the power
Oh, look at her, she got the power”

6) Sweet but Psycho by Ava Max

“Oh, she’s sweet but a psycho
A little bit psycho
At night she’s screamin’
I’m-ma-ma-ma out my mind”

7) We Appreciate Power by Grimes

“People like to say that we’re insane
But AI will reward us when it reigns
Pledge allegiance to the world’s most powerful computer”

8) Enjoy Your Life by Marina

“sit back and enjoy your problems
(Oh) you don’t always have to solve them
(Yeah) ’cause your worst days, they are over
So enjoy your life”

9) Cellophane by FKA Twigs

“And I, just want to feel you’re there
And I don’t want to have to share our love
I try, but I get overwhelmed”

10) Cinnamon Girl by Lana Del Rey

“There’s things I wanna say to you
But I’ll just let you live
Like if you hold me without hurting me
You’ll be the first who ever did”

11) L.Y.T.L.M by Selena Gomez

“I needed to lose you to find me
This dancing was killing me softly
I needed to hate you to love me, yeah”

12) Needy by Ariana Grande

“And I can be needy
Way too damn needy
I can be needy
Tell me how good it feels to be needed”

13) Science by Allie X

“Sink beneath the surface while
Reaching for the stars
The world is out of focus like
All the passing cars”

14) Hot Girl bummer by Blackbear

“Fuck you, and you, and you
I hate your friends and they hate me too
I’m through, I’m through, I’m through
This that hot girl bummer anthem”

15) Shut Up by Greyson Chance

“I’m sweating bullets, nervous that you’ll push away
And when your eyes catch mine, I know I talk too much
So give me your two lips and baby, I’ll shut up”

16) Cruel Summer Taylor Swift

“Oh, it’s new
The shape of your body, it’s blue
The feeling I’ve got
And it’s ooh, whoa oh
It’s a cruel summer”

17) Official by Charli XCX

“Look at us
Isn’t it obvious?
Is it so dangerous?
Is it so complicated?”

18) Violence by Grimes

“I am like, begging for you baby
Makes you wanna party
Wanna break up
Baby, it’s violence, violence”

19) Rules by Doja Cat

Bitch, I’m fucking reptilian”

20) E.W.N by Kanye West

“Life too short, go spoil yourself
Feel that feel, enjoy yourself ’cause

21) You Need To Calm Down by Taylor Swift

“You just need to take several seats and then try to restore the peace
And control your urges to scream about all the people you hate
‘Cause shade never made anybody less gay”

22) Born Without a Heart by Faouzia

“I don’t really care, and I never will
That’s the way I am, such a bitter pill
I don’t really care, how much silence kills
That’s the way I am”

So dumb, I believed you really liked me
‘Cause of you, now my heart is so icy”

24) Never Really Over by Katy Perry

Thought we meant this time was the last
But I guess it’s never really over
Thought we drew the line
Right through you and I
Can’t keep going back
I guess it’s never really over, hey”

25) Look At Her Now by Selena Gomez

“Of course she was sad
But now she’s glad she dodged a bullet (Mm)
Took a few years to soak up the tears
But look at her now”

Honorable Mention:

On A Roll by Ashley O

“Hey, yeah, whoa-ho, I’m on a roll
Ridin’ so high, achieving my goals
Hey, yeah, whoa-ho, I’m on a roll
Ridin’ so high, achieving my goals”

As I’ve made clear above, women ruled my playlist in 2019; I’m a sucker for the pop girls. Let me know what you thought of my picks and who I should have included or snubbed. Hopefully, I introduced you to some music to bop to throughout your week.
