My ten favorite songs for 2016. My only rule is they had to be released as singles. My apologies to Beyoncé and Rihanna but since I’m an old guy I went outside the Top 40 and went for those NPR type songs. FYI-Formation and Work were definite highlights from this year.
I’m still a melody guy so if I can instantly recall a song’s hook or a memorable line, it’s open for consideration.
Theses are the ten songs that stuck with me in 2016…in no particular order.
STURGILL SIMPSON Brace For Impact (Live A Little)
WARPAINT New Song
HAMILTON LEITHAUSER + ROSTAM A 1000 Times
RADIOHEAD Burn The Witch
ANGEL OLSEN Shut Up Kiss Me
MONDO COZMO Shine
SUNFLOWER BEAN Easier Said
LYDIA LOVELESS Longer
BETH ORTON 1973
DINOSAUR JR. Tiny
