Well folks, it’s over. What a crazy ride! 2016 was pretty dark at times, but I’ve learned and loved lots of new music that has brought so much light to my life! Some music from 2016 was silly. Some is already dated and nostalgic. But there are songs that I already know will continue to stay with me through the years. They’ll become a part of the soundtrack of my life. Now we’re ready to do it all over again, and we’re hoping this year will be better than the last. Looking back at some of my favorite songs released in 2016, I am filled with joy, hope, and the promise of things to come.
Bring it on, 2017. I’m ready for ya!
Okay, that’s it! I’m certain there were some gross oversights, so what did I miss? Drop me a note in the comments!
P.S. I made a rule of only one song per artist. It was difficult at times, but y’all can look up the full albums you’re interested in. This is meant to be a ’16 smorgasbord.
P.P.S. This playlist is alphabetized by artist. It is not in chronological order of release or ranked based on merit or partiality.
