There have been a lot of really great songs released in 2019. This year, we will be revealing our top 100 songs five tunes at a time all the way to number one. Here are our picks for 25-21
25. Sheer Mag – Hardly To Blame
A singalong chorus enhances the bounciness on this Rocker of a song from the Philly based group.
24. Leon Bridges and Khruangbin – Texas Sun
Two soon to be Texas legends, Leon Bridges from Fort Worth and Houston’s Khruangbin team up on a classic sounding single.
23. Gillian Welch & David Rawlings – When a Cowboy Trades His Spurs For Wings
The undeniable chemistry on this stand-alone (so far) single from Gillian Welch and David Rawlings makes for sweet harmony filled listening, courtesy of the San Saba Songbird from The Ballad of Buster Scruggs.
22. Yes Factory – Radio Waves
Some Matthew Sweet vintage Power Pop for the new age. The band is from Rockford Illinois and features Ian Zander, son of Cheap Trick’s Robin Zander. This apple falls not so far from the Rock tree.
21. DeWolff – It Ain’t Easy
One of our more pleasant Rock and Roll finds from 2018, it took us a bit to get used to the Jamiroquai vibes on this one from their latest two-song E.P. but after a few studious listens of this one, the mid-song guitar noodling sold us big time.
