My Favorite Songs from 2016

Hi everyone and Happy Friday! Thank Goodness 2016 is FINALLY coming to an end! Are you ready for this year to be over too? It’s been a crazy year, especially in my personal life. I hope 2017 will be much better for me and everyone. 2016 was a pretty hard year to pick a lot of songs I liked. I decided with the following 10 songs and a couple of bonus songs. My blogging buddy, Tracy from A Joyful Process inspired me to do this post. You can check out his lists here. He has a great selection of mainstream and non-mainstream songs/albums.  Eclectic Music Lover did an awesome list of Top 100 songs from 2016. You can take a look at it here. I’m going to countdown my list of hits starting at number 10. What are your favorite songs and albums from 2016? WARNING: A few of these songs are NSFW (not suitable for work) or children. Please listen at your own risk.

Number 10- Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop the Feeling” This is a nice, upbeat song that gets me going. The song was featured in the children’s movie, “Trolls.”

Number 9- Metallica’s “Hardwired” These guys can still rock after a few decades! I was really surprised when I heard they were coming out with a new album this year. They put on a hell of a show!

Number 8- Carlos Santana’s “Blues Magic” This song is sort of the story of my life right now πŸ˜‰

Number 7- Future’s “Low Life” I’m not really into new rap. I got to see the guy at El Paso’s Neon Desert Music Festival in May and… I’ll admit he isn’t all that bad! I like his collaboration with The Weeknd in this one.

Number 6- Calvin Harris “This is what You Came for” I didn’t like this song when it first came out but…it eventually grew on me. I’m SO not a Rihanna fan but I guess this song is an exception to the rule. I honestly think someone else could’ve sang her part a lot better in this one (maybe even Taylor Swift?? Ha ha, imagine the drama there after her and Calvin’s breakup?) Calvin Harris’ beat is what gets me to like the song.  

Number 5- Ariana Grande’s “Dangerous Woman” Not much to say other than I like the beat and vocals in this one.

Number 4- Bruno Mars “24K Magic” Ever since I heard the song for the first time in October, I’ve been bobbing my head and singing along to it a lot lately.

Number 3- Twenty One Pilots “Heathens” It’s been awhile since I’ve followed a lot of alternative rock music (I think the last time was when Nirvana’s “Teen Spirit” was a huge hit!) This one’s being played on the Top 40 and rock stations here. I love the beats and lyrics of it. This one is no stranger in the blog.

Bonus songs:

Just a heads up, guys…my top two favorite songs from 2016 are both collaborations with The Weeknd and Daft Punk. I’ve already been saying it for years but I’ll say it again…The Weeknd has a TON of talent! I expect so many more great hits from him in the years to come. 

Number 2- The Weeknd’s “I feel it Coming”


Number 1- The Weeknd’s and Daft Punk’s “Starboy”


  1. Enjoyed reading this!
    I’m a Alternative music blogger based in India, fairly new to WordPress. My latest blogpost is about Royal Blood, the new heavy rock duo who have been applauded by the legend Jimmy Page himself, they have opened for Foo Fighters and Arctic Monkeys are big supporters of this act. Rock riffs haven’t sounded this good since the 00s.

  9. Oh yes, all is well! Busy with my project and lots of gatherings and appointments. That’s why I am barely around at the moment. But I am coming up with a post tomorrow ;-). Hope you are doing good too, Lisa! I wish you the best of life for 2017! May all your dreams come true or at least, may there be less struggles than unfoldings!
