2016 was a wild one. It’s not a year that many of us will look back all that fondly on, but then again, it wasn’t all bad. There were a lot of great albums and songs released throughout the year, from artists of all sizes. From the surprise drop, to the long-awaited albums from greats like Radiohead.

Tomorrow I’ll share my list of my favorite albums of the year, but first, lets dig in to the songs that I had on constant repeat throughout the year.

My favorite 100 songs of the year, listed below, and a giant spotify playlist made for your convenience with all of the songs (although songs from Thee Oh Sees, Bombay, Night Flowers, Ty Segall, and Dr. Dog were not found on Spotify).
