Although the later you get through 2010s chart music vanished and even acts who used to have top 5 hits cant get in the top 100 so maybe a better decade to enter more unknown tracks
10s will be even tougher though as many huge songs don’t even go top 100 now and picking songs in the top 20 post 2014 especially the may even count against you as the charts become more and more focused on a few sounds. I have 4 songs for each year but I know I will be fighting people off for half of them.
"huge songs" meaning radio-friendly, lots of hits on youtube/spotify, popular here...
Sam Smith had many big hits during those years. He's very popular on Haven isn't he?
Not just that from current bands that sell out arenas or play high up the bills at festivals but their songs don’t chart, their album will go top 20 for a week and vanish, those kind of bands and singers. Sam Smith is a major chart star so he doesn’t fit in that category.

I looked at the line-up at a rock festival in 2019. Some were quite old artists, some didn't release anything that year, nobody I found that made sing-a-long rock anthems, they either were whiny or screaming.
I'll just have to enter something that is one of Haven's "darlings" for that year.
Youtube should throw up some stuff as well, based on what you watch, thats always useful
I have video playlists for every month in 2019, if you want to trawl through 1000 songs a year, its not all stuff I like either some are important releases, random eyecatching videos or big names. In no particular order just as I found them.
I could make one big playlist but cant be bothered right now, here is Jan 2019
I am too good to you here is the whole year BNE Video 2019 New Releases. 974 videos knock yourself out, something should catch your eye!!
I have a couple of songs for each year too, they are pretty set in stone - unless I do what I did with 2000's and as I was finding videos on YouTube I saw other songs and ended up picking them instead!
Page 210 of the Personal Charts Forum has a countdown from Earl Purple for his Top 250 songs of 2010, so I'm sure he could look at those and cobble something together. Sadly I wasn't doing a personal chart back then, so it's no use to me, but I can always look at other people's faves from each year and refresh my memory
My celebrity crushes : Monika Sedziuviene, Kristina Ivanova (YVA).
In my head I like to imagine LastDreamer in the land of Lithuania right now with a suitcase of simcards, a box of chocolates and a wedding ring. It would be a great base for an epic Eurovision fan fiction.
