The 30 Songs I Digged Most In 2016

After a two-year hiatus, here is my list of The 30 Best Songs of 2016.

Of course, this is subjective.  I only considered songs released in 2016 that were included in the 190, or so, postings on this blog.  Although I had no set "evaluation criteria," songwriting, performance, and how much I dig the tune were undoubtably considered.

Every year, I miss dozens of great songs.  If you have any recommendations, please leave a comment or shoot me a note.  I always appreciate it.

Anyhow, here is this year's list...
