It’s time for the (2016) Best of Last Year mixlist!
It’s rare (exceedingly rare) that I get the playlist finalized before June. Life (in the form of kids, wife, job, inherent and pervasive laziness) tends to take over. Not this year, though! I murdered my wife and kids which caused me to lose my job! (Just kidding.)
I was surprised by this year’s list. Some decidedly “Top 40” tracks made their way in, but it was through the brilliant, musical mastery of the artist. My favorite album of the year ended up being the soundtrack to a musical I haven’t seen. And peppered between are new tracks by long-loved artists and undiscovered tracks that wouldn’t let me go.
See the playlist and listen to it on my (2016) Best of Last Year mixlist.
