As is tradition on the last day of the year, we share The Mega, Mega Playlist of 2016. After featuring more than 2,500 songs through The Matinee, Melodic Tonic, Saturday Sampler, album reviews, photo essays, and premieres. We’ve reduced that list to 120 songs just in time for New Year’s Day. These songs aren’t a complete representation of what we’ve enjoyed, as you can also check out our Favorite Albums of 2016 – Full List piece that has another playlist. If you enjoyed this playlist, take a listen to last year’s massive playlist here.

Happy New Year everyone. May 2017 bring you and your loved ones much prosperity.
