PeteHatesMusic’s Top Songs of 2016
I’ve been a bit of an absentee father from the blog the past few months (depending on how generous your definition of “few” is). Excuses include travelling to Iceland, travelling to New York (and seeing CHVRCHES at Radio City Music Hall), and moving into a new place in the west end (come stalk me).
But that doesn’t mean I didn’t find music to make my ears happy in 2016. While I might do a playlist dump of other great songs that I neglected to post, below are 10 honourable mentions and a top 5 list for 2016. Hit play, and enjoy.
Note that the Honourable Mentions are in no particular order, but are included in the playlist below for ease of listening. Also note that if you don’t have Spotify, the other playlist I made doesn’t have every single song, as they all aren’t on YouTube.
The Weeknd (feat. Daft Punk) – I Feel It Coming
Austra – Utopia
Basia Bulat – Fool
Angel Olsen – Sister
A Tribe Called Quest- Dis Generation
Chance the Rapper (feat. Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz) – No Problem
