Top 89 of 2020 - Staff Picks (MPR graphic)

The end of the year is upon us, and that means it's time to reflect on your favorite music of 2020! We want to hear the songs that kept you company, made you dance, and/or carried you through this difficult year. Vote for your favorite songs, and on Dec. 31 from 5 p.m. CST until midnight, we'll count down the Top 89 songs of 2020 on the air. You can hear the countdown re-aired from noon until 7 p.m. on Jan. 1.

Vote for your Top 89 of 2020!

Need inspiration for your list? Our hosts and staffers have compiled their own top 10s, and we'll be revealing everyone's picks throughout the month of December.
