Best Songs of the Year 2018: 100-76

It's time! After the lists of EPs and Records of the year, now is time to beging unveiling our Best Songs of 2018! If you are a regular follower of the Blog (maaany thanks), you'll probably know the 'rules', but for newcomers and people in need of a "refreshment", here they are. A) We always divide our favourite 100 tunes in four different posts of 25 songs each. B) In previous editions, we limited the maximum number of songs a group/artist could have overall to three, but as 2018 has been a particularly ‘rich’ year, full of exciting tunes from many acts, this year we have reduded to just two (with one sole exception). C) Bands/artists can only have one tune per round. And, of course, we compile the songs on playlists, so you can enjoy them as many times as you like. So, without further delay, here are the tunes comprised between 100 and 76! Hope you enjoy our selection. And stay tuned, next round coming very soon!
