The year that lasted centuries is finally coming to a close – and we need some music to bid good riddance to the horrors of 2020.

Last week, Guardian Australia asked our readers what song they'd add to the ultimate new year's eve playlist: one that represents the year we've had, the year we're hoping for, or just the way we'll feel (and the words we'll be screaming) at midnight.

Below are all the songs that were nominated, and now we need you to vote so we can build the perfect soundtrack for your night. NEW CLOSING DATE: Voting will now close on Friday December 18 at 2PM AEST – and we'll launch the playlist of the top 20 songs on Monday.
