Top 30 Songs for December 9-15, 2018

This week I’m pleased to place the wonderfully moving song “In My Mind” by a young Chicago singer-songwriter who goes by the artistic name Draft Evader, at #1. I’ve followed him for a while and have watched him grow and mature as an artist. He’s a terrific songwriter and guitarist, and is also becoming a pretty good vocalist too. Panic! At the Disco’s celebratory “High Hopes” leaps 9 spots to #8. Though I’ve long been a fan of theirs, I did not initially like this song. But after reading fellow blogger MusiCommentator’s review, I listened with fresh ears and an open mind, and damn if it didn’t hook me in!
