My year in song: The songs that I have loved in 2018

2018 has been a strange year for music in my opinion. In the Western music scene, we saw a few comebacks from some of my favourite artists such as Kylie Minogue, Simply Red releasing a DVD of their recent concert in Brazil.

Call Out My Name – The Weeknd

This is the first song that I have ever heard from The Weeknd and I instantly fell in love with its melody and the emotive vocals. I think it deserved to be a much bigger hit than it actually was.

Dancing – Kylie Minogue

Kylie Minogue released her latest album Golden this year and the first release from the album was the upbeat track Dancing. What I loved the most about Dancing, is that despite its strong vocals and overall happy vibe, the song was also reflective of Kylie’s struggle with breast cancer and this has been subtley reflected in some of the lyrics which makes Dancing a song with a lot of depth and meaning.

I have also fallen back in love with some old favourites this year, which I have listed below. Its always a wonderful feeling to reconnect with the songs you once loved so much.
