Top 50 Songs of 2016

Here it is our Top 50 songs of 2016. I think I can speak for the everyone in the world when I say, “Thank god this year is over!”. This past year will ultimately be looked back upon as the year of great loss. With the passing of so many talented artists, from David Bowie, Prince, Glenn Frey, Leonard Cohen, Merle Haggard, Leon Russell, Phife Dawg, and on and on, a huge creative void has been created in the musical landscape.  We can only hope this void will be filled with artists and bands like the ones found on our list.  Keep hope alive!

As with any list, we know we missed a bunch of great tunes but this is what we listened to the most and liked the best. Let us know what we missed and we will follow up with a new list of “I can’t believe you left off this song, your list stinks”.  Here is looking back to the great songs of 2016.  Click on the links to hear the songs or follow the Spotify Playlist.
