Pitchfork's 200 Best of the 2010's

October 7th, 2019

It seems a little early to be releasing a list of the best songs of the decade, right?

I'm not even sure that you can properly evaluate the best songs of the decade that you're currently living in, because it's impossible to see how these songs (especially the later releases) will continue to grow as music moves forward. Or how they'll impact future musicians. I mean, look at Weezer. Pinkerton received crummy reviews at the time of it's release, and now it's one of their most important albums. Or Lizzo, who is having a GREAT 2019 and isn't even featured. 

With that said, there are some songs I love on this list. And some songs that I'd forgotten about, and a few I've never heard, so I encourage you to look it over for yourself. 

What a weird decade for music. What are you thoughts? Let me know on Twitter, @rachaelcd1025
