Elynna's Top Fifteen of 2020

Hello everyone, welcome to my best of 2020 list. It was a disaster of a year in nearly every way (for obvious reasons), but good things happened as well. Studying at home has been frustrating to say the least, but one of the positives is that I've had an abundance of time to discover and listen to new (genres of) music. I guess I expanded my horizon, keeping some distance from metal and indulging myself in traditional folk music from around the world. This has led to a somewhat weird and eclectic list. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas/new year!
