/ Miss Chatelaine / Music / Best songs of 2018: no.20 to no.11 – Show #94 (part 1), 20 January 2019


Katie counts down her top 20 best/favourite songs of 2018. It was very hard to narrow down the hundreds of songs she heard last year, but she’s very happy with the final choices! Two of the songs in numbers 20 to 11 are by American artists and the rest are by Australians, and there is strong representation by solo women singer-songwriters. Here is the playlist:

20. Love or Money – Bennett, Bowtell & Urquhart
19. Strangers – Tia Gostelow ft. LANKS
18. Something Left to Leave Behind – Clio
17. Definitely – Belly Savalas
16. Wandering Roads – Rhiannon Giddens & Charles Esten
15. In This House – Áine Tyrrell ft. Dane Kennedy
14. What Remains – Hannah Cameron
13. Arrows – Missy Higgins
12. Society – Ainslie Wills
11. What If I Told You – Gabriel Kahane
