Short and sweet for 2016 hope you like it. Again, this is not a "best of 2016" these are just MY favourite songs from 2016. Enjoy!

20.
Wherever You Go
The Treble // Wherever You Go

Gotta get a local fave in here! This song is honestly just so damn catchy and the lyric video is hella cool and took a lot of work with help from across the world! I should also mention that these guys are a group of super cool dudes. They just signed a record deal so this will be the first of many!

19.
The Sound
The 1975 // I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it

18.
Work
Rihanna // ANTI

17.
Til It Happens To You
Lady Gaga // Til It Happens To You

This song breaks me every time. What gives me chills even just thinking about is her Oscars performance of this song. Simply incredible and started a dialogue that is necessary. The Hunting Ground is also a hugely eye-opening watch.

Your Love Will Blow Me Away When My Heart Aches
Son Little // Son Little

I've said it a few times now and whenever someone mentions Son Little I tell them about the 2016 Winnipeg Folk Fest when I was wondering around the grounds showing my friend (who had never been) around, we sauntered up to one of the stages just meaning to pass by until I heard his stunning voice. I looked at my friend and sat my ass down in the field for a longer listen. 

08.
Arizona
Frances Cone // Arizona - Single

07.
The Breach
Dustin Tebbutt // The Breach EP

The Lumineers // Cleopatra

05.

04.
Bloom
The Paper Kites // Woodland EP

03.
Closer
Chainsmokers ft. Halsey // Closer

This was the soundtrack to my road trip with my sister this past summer. We listened to it at least once every day and, to be honest, I'm still not sick of it.

02.
Sorry
Beyoncé // LEMONADE

Because "Boy Bye".

01.
Formation
Beyoncé // LEMONADE

Beyoncé, as she does, made our jaws drop with this completely out of the blue (main reason I love her). This year is probably when we needed this most (and the next four years to come). This song is important for many reasons, it's empowering, it starts a conversation and well, it's just plain fierce! 

Full playlist below (minus Beyoncé).
