🏆 2020 - Tracks Of The Year (So Far) 🏆

I’ll take a handful of likes as sufficient interest!

Please list your favourite 10 tracks released so far this year, in order if possible. Can be from singles, EPs or albums, but ideally not re-issues. Alternatively you can DM me your list if you prefer.

I’ll leave this open until Sunday 19th April, unless people think it should be longer. Then I’ll do some counting stuff.
