In 2013 I started compiling the Best Hey-Oh! Songs of the year. Some were the best songs of the year and some were my favorite, but they were all songs that made me take notice when I first heard them.
“It’s a song that when it came on incited an unsolicited, deep from the belly & soul Ron Burgandy quality “Hey-Oh!”– as in, “Hey-oh! That’s a damn good song.” You might not have said it out loud, but you definitely thought it. You turned the volume up, you danced, you pressed repeat, and yelled to no one in particular: DJ! ONE MORE TIME!”
This year’s list, which can be found over at BroBible, includes songs by Billie Eilish, the Black Keys, Lizzo, Vampire Weekend, Gary Clark Jr., Migos and more.
And if you’d like to take a trip down memory lane, here is a playlist of all the Hey-Oh! Songs from 2013 to 2019.
