For the fall of 2020, WXPN has once again asked its audience to help choose the 2,020 greatest songs of all time. The countdown playback began this morning, and as we listen through the music that our listeners voted for, we’ve asked prominent Philadelphians and some of our favorite musicians to share their favorites to get us thinking about our lists. Today, we present an eclectic list from Philadelphia Inquirer music critic Dan De Luca for The 2020 Countdown. Check it out below and listen to the countdown here.
