A lot of people hate 2016 because of Harambe and Trump, but it was one of my favorite years of all time. DOL WAS BORN!!!! I lost weight and had a cool like 14 month stretch, Papi's final season was incredible (despite its ending), Pats won the Super Bowl (again). I had a lot of good times with a lot of good people, here is some of the music from those times.
Again, the years are a loose guideline. Remember if there's a song omitted from the list, don't fret it could very well be in my top 30 (I think at this point it's officially 40) of the decade!
"No Heart", "Ocean Drive" 21 Savage + Metro Boomin
I fuck w/ 21 HEAVY. There may or may not be footage of me singing Ocean Drive (uncensored) at a party I was not invited to.
"Talk Too Much" Coin
At the time hands down my favorite song of 2016. Still love it to this day.
"No Hard Feelings" Avett Brothers
When I first started thinking how I was going to lay this blog out one of the potential ways was to just have all the songs regardless of year in one blog. From there they would be divided into sections. "College", "songs I felt like I had to include that didn't hold up", etc. "Cry songs" was another section I was dead set on and this would be the lead off track. Fun game idea....try and guess the other ones that would be in that section!
"She's Out of Her Mind" Blink-182
I have been v vocal in my distane for new Blink w/o Tom. It just isn't right. I don't really like a lot of their new stuff but that is not the case here whatsoever. Unreal video, awesome song. Best Blink has done since 2003.
"Pink + White" Frank Ocean
Frank is that dude.
"Favorite Liar" The Wrecks
All-time sing-a-long whatever genre you wanna place this in song.
Starboy (ft. Daft Punk) The Weeknd
I'm OTR that The Weeknd is the next Michael Jackson. Hopefully without the minor salad tossing. This song BANGS
"Jungle" Tash Sultana
Pound for pound the most talented person in music. Busker!
"Million Reasons" Lady Gaga
Cheap Thrills (ft. Sean Paul) Sia
Sia is weird AF so i fuck w/ her.
"Over", "Find Me", "Eyes On You" Kings of Leon
I had this CD. Big CD guy when I had my Jeep and saw both Massachusetts legs of the tour. Love KOL.
"Life Itself", "Pork Soda" Glass Animals
Liking Glass Animals helped my 2nd ONS happen so they'll always have a special place in my heart. I'd drink Pork Soda.
Baby Blue (ft. Chance) Action Bronson
I was Action Bronson for Halloween in 2016.
"All the Pretty Girls" KALEO
Just a beautiful song. Bon Iver vibes.
"Sleep on the Floor" The Lumineers
I would love to live out this music video minus the shotgun wedding.
"Come Down" Anderson .Paak
s/o first take?
"Human" Rag'n'Bone Man
This guy could've fallen off the face of the earth for all I know. Great song though.
No Problem (ft. Lil Wayne & 2 Chainz) Chance the Rapper
Hard to not respect and love this man.
One of those songs I randomly found on an apple music playlists.
"Still Breathing" Green Day
IMO Green Day's best post-American Idiot work.
"Cake by the Ocean" DNCE
Bassist has all time stupid hair but then again I've never forgotten him so maybe it's all time smart hair?
"Love Me", "Ugh", "She's American"(...everything) The 1975
One of my favorite albums and bands of the decade. More to come soon.
"White Iverson", "I Fall Apart" Post Malone
I love Posty and just hope he can start brushing his teeth and get some of those horrible tats removed.
"New Song" Warpaint
peak BRU. I'm a sucker for girl bands.
