It looks like this year I really liked Hamilton again with Leslie Odom Jr. and Lin-Manuel Miranda tracks swapping places and both passing The Orion Experience, which was number one for the past two years yet fell to fourth this year. Jack Stauber’s Micropop and Shawn Wasabi are newcomers to the top!
Here’s my top 10 (as shown above but put into text in case the image breaks):
|Rank||Artist||Scrobbles||2019 Rank||2019 Scrobbles|

|10||SilverLetomi performing a WoW parody of I’m Still Standing by Elton John (but scrobbling from YouTube yields an incorrect artist name)||57|

I certainly saw less live bands in 2020, which obvious.
- Koo Koo Kanga Roo with Kepi Ghoulie at Chain Reaction
Wait, where’s number 2? There is no number 2.
But there were some virtual shows:
- The Aquabats!: Kooky Spooky! Halloween Party!
- The Aquabats!: Kooky Kristmas Party
I really hope we can get back to seeing live music next year!
