Jeff's Best of 2019 - #4: Billie Eilish - When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?

There’s nothing I can say about Billie Eilish that hasn’t already been said by others, and probably said better. And it appears she may have some staying power that no other artist with a debut album this year will come close to, so we will hear more.

But for me, as someone who has dabbled in horrorcore and who is always game for something different, BE was a revelation not only because she’s young and doing something so bold and different, but because it resonates in the public zeitgeist so firmly. “Bad Guy” was a top song for me this year according to Spotify, and it’s probably second only to “Old Town Road” overall nationally. When the popular and the weird intersect, we all benefit, and I can’t wait to hear what’s next.

Songs of note: “Bad Guy,” “You Should See Me In a Crown,” “Bury a Friend,” “My Strange Addiction.”
