Spotify keeps track of which songs is played the most on your account during the year. That gave me the chance to look back on the music year and join the “best of” discussion.
Data doesn’t lie, so at least these are my subconscious votes for the top songs of 2016.
My list contains a lot of music from Norway. If you are from somewhere outside this country, maybe you will find a new Nordic favorite in there.
Highasakite, Motorpsycho, Spidergawd, Aurora, Snøskred and Johndoe released great albums last year and have my warmest recommendations.
There’s a good mix of international artists in there as well, including Radiohead, Låpsley, PJ Harvey, Mogwai, Explosions in the sky and many more.
This year, I am looking forward to hearing new releases from San Fermin, LCD Soundsystem and Spidergawd, amongst many others. You should also be on the lookout for the upcoming release from Rohey, a very talented singer who has been touring with Jarle Bernhoft lately.
Anyway, here is my list of 2016. Besides a few party bloopers (The Muppet Show Theme was for a wedding, I swear!), there’s mostly great music in it. Enjoy!
