My Top 5 Songs, Movies and Everything Else of 2020

My Top 5 Songs, Movies and Everything Else of 2020

As a movies/ tv shows buff and a podcasts addict, I consume a lot of stuff from time to time, and also either review it or at the most, I recommend it ahead in my series, The Last 7 Days.

But, as 2020 comes to an end, and as this year was a unique one, I have been documenting whatever I can of it, right from what I ate, to what I consumed in a particular week, to writing down my thoughts and journey over this blog or my podcast.

This Top 5 is a basically a summary of the best of songs, podcasts, films, tv shows of 2020, according to me.

There were a ton of English films released this year, that didn’t make the cut because they aren’t available in India yet. (will hopefully watch those soon)

With so many films of 2020 postponed to 2021, no matter how the next year turns out, it’s definitely going to be amazing in terms of content.

Have I missed out on anything else though?
