FearlessRiOT’s Top 20 Songs of the Week! [Dec. 18, 2015]

Can you believe we are THIS close to the end of 2015? I would like to say that time sure has flown, but it doesn’t feel all that accurate this time around; 2015 was a long year. A long, tiresome, politically-correct year. And as it winds down, as does the weekly Top 20 Countdown, evidenced  by the fact that numerous songs are at a stand-still this week, including the entire top three. For the third week in a row, Adele reigns supreme while Drake and Ellie Goulding retain their #2 and #3 spots. Lauren Alaina and Chris Cornell have swapped positions to round out the Top 5.

Elsewhere on the countdown, Bring Me The Horizon has the biggest drop of the week while Justin Bieber, Prince, and Halestorm have the biggest movers, with the latter two cracking the Top 10. As far as countdown debuts go, we have two from hard rock/metal band Stitched Up Heart and country singer Eric Church.
