COVID-19, quarantine, riots and politics. Businesses closing, events canceling, and kids distance learning from home. All of those things have made 2020 a weird and crazy year. Normally, that would be more than enough for any single year and yet we are not even halfway through this one.

If any year needed a theme song, it's 2020. So we asked our River listeners in Central Minnesota -- If you could give the year 2020 a theme song, what would it be? We got a wide variety of answers that expressed pessimism, optimism, and humor. First, Abbey and I gave our songs.

David Black: "Hold On" - Wilson Phillips or "Crazy Train" - Ozzy Osbourne

Abbey: "Disaster Party" - Magic Giant or "Breakdown" - Tom Petty
