Top 30 Songs for December 26, 2021-January 1, 2022

The War on Drugs take over the top spot on my final Weekly Top 30 of 2021 with their bittersweet “I Don’t Live Here Anymore”, featuring beautiful backing vocals by indie pop band Lucius. Canadian-born and now L.A.-based singer-songwriter Shimmer Johnson enters the top 10 with her lively dance-pop song “Starts With You”, and debuting this week are “Chapstick” by Nashville pop-rock band COIN, and the delightfully funky “Head in the Clouds” by Sydney, Australian band Thunder Fox.

  1. Coincidentally I just finished writing a quick post on their song ‘Change’ and ‘I don’t live here anymore’ from their Tiny Desk home concert performance. It’s weird, but I don’t like the studio version of a Change much, but the Tiny Desk version blew me away. Also recently I finished writing a post on their masterful Eyes to the Wind song. Merry festive season!
