Top 20 Songs of 2016

Despite all the general feeling of 2016 being a horrible year, I think we can agree that the year gave us some pretty great music. I think this year’s end of year chart is one of my most diverse in terms of genre. There is a good mix of pop, EDM, and EDM/pop. Carrie Underwood takes the honour as being the only country artist to make it on this end of year chart. I also noticed that out of the 20 spots, 9 songs this year feature other artists. The top 5 songs are all songs that got played more times than we eventually liked and had some staying power on the charts this year.

Be sure to checkout my Spotify playlist of all the songs on this chart. Let me know what your favourite song is and what song you would have chosen to be number 1 for the year?
