Broadcat's top jams of 2020

January 14, 2021 3:00:00 AM CST / by Broadcat

We're starting off 2021 the best way possible: full of awesome music! 🎶 That's right, it's time for Broadcat's top jams of 2020!

First, a couple of liner notes:

Liner note 1: These are the songs we (apparently) played the most in 2020. Several of us were *shocked* that these are the results—we liked other songs way more! But, you know, behavior versus intention. 🤔

Liner note 2: Lyrics may include some swears, so proceed with caution. We've marked those that are particularly egregious. 🙉

Liner note 3: Curious about our past musical taste? Go check out our top tunez in 2019!

Liner note 4: Listen to Spotify and want to get ridiculed for your taste in music? Check out this ridic AI bot. 😬

With all that said, here they are: our top plays for 2020! 🤘

Runner-up: Who's Been Loving You? | Watsky
