Not that you necessarily asked for it, but I decided to put together a list of some songs and albums I liked over the last year. My Top 16 of 2016, if you will. I’m sure there are a ton of songs, albums and artists I’m missing, but these were the first 16 I thought of, so that says something, right?
A couple of notes before you start ….
– I cannot guarantee that all of the links below are safe for work.Watch/listen at your own peril.
– There is one artist on here I know I will be heavily criticized for, and I am OK with that. I am a fan his music. I sing along to it in the car. I sing it in the shower. I enjoy his music videos and think his dancing is great. I am not ashamed of this, and you will never change my mind.
– While this list is alphabetical order, it is a fact that Tired Of Tomorrow by NOTHING is the best album of the year. Any best of list that does not include this album should best considered null and void.
If, for some strange reason, you are interested in hearing more songs I like, I made this handy dandy Playlist on Spotify for you….
