I really don’t know how folks release their lists before year’s end.
Here are my 50 favorite songs of last year, ordered for (with luck) listening pleasure rather than rank, bracketed by two compositions from Undertale.
Be warned: this is sugar through-and-through. There’s not much on here that I’d consider quiet or introspective. Certainly nothing you could call acoustic. I’m embarrassed by the hip-hop portion’s tiny size. There’s no overlap with either Pitchfork’s top 100 tracks or top 50 albums. Nelly shows up twice. Yeah, that’s what this is like.
No, no, he hasn’t been left alone WITH blood- You know what this is about. Stop being coy.
“Aces High” makes me want to watch Empire, “Immigrants (We Get The Job Done)” makes me want to see Hamilton, Steve Aoki’s remix of “Welcome to the Black Parade” makes me want to be sixteen again, “DMT and Whiskey” was the last song Jacosa played for me before she died.
The Best of 2016 is just around the corner. This will do more than merely tide you over.
American Idol loser Bo Bice doesn’t seem to understand that Popeyes is a metaphysical force.
This may be my favorite glitch video of all time.
I don’t say that lightly. Each glitch highlighted could be its own video, but the editor never lets any shot outstay its welcome. Not to mention the variety of glitches on display! You have incidental game fuck-ups (tracers hovering frozen in the air, characters falling through floors) and forced reality-benders resulting from player input (anything involving planes colliding, soldiers riding on biplanes). Took me until about halfway through to realize that the audio track is from a commercial for the game.
