Sunday Spotify 16: 12/18/16

high fidelity cassette

It begins tomorrow.

What is it, you ask?  It’s The Ghost’s countdown of the Top 101 songs of 2016.  The Ghost has been hard at work, compiling all the best songs of the year, ranking each song carefully.  Each day, a certain portion of the countdown will be revealed, with the number one song being announced on New Year’s Eve.  So, are you ready to discover which songs made the countdown?

You don’t get to find that out yet.  Instead, the below sixteen tracks did NOT make the countdown.  Notice I said tracks, not artists, as many of the artists below are featured in the countdown, just not with those particular songs.  There are a few, however, that came close to charting, yet barely missed the mark.  Either way, consider this week’s Sunday Spotify 16 a sneak preview of the greatness to come on the countdown.

  1. Somogyi, “Got No Doubt”
  2. Charley Crockett, “Silver Dagger”
  3. Bravo, Max!, “Raise a Toast”
  4. Kinsley August, “Thirst”
  5. Reverend KM Williams, “Ring in My Pocket”
  6. Castaway Radio, “Shades, Spades & Spinach”
  7. Hightower, “Phantom Pains”
  8. Sam Small, “Being With You”
  9. Calliope Musicals, “Potting Daisies”
  10. Cut Throat Finches, “Toska”
  11. Party Static, “Tricky”
  12. Cassie Holt, “Gluttony”
  13. In Memory of Man, “Broke Down and Left for Dead”
  14. Mind Spiders, “Split in Two”
  15. (monkeysphere), “Dance Into the Void”
  16. Reddening West, “The River”
