ADAM’S TOP 100 OF 2016: Part Two, 50-26

All the top tunes from the year that was.

All the top tunes from the year that was.

On the second day of my year-end chart reveal, my true love gave to me… 25 more songs to bop to, of course! Yes, it’s time to head into the top 50 with plenty of big songs, as well as a few tracks you may have overlooked. DNCE and OneRepublic take a pair of pop ditties and place them in this pack, while a “Lost Boy” meets a “Boyfriend” on “Another Lonely Night”. So, let’s go “Up&Up” the countdown until we reach that #1 song of the year…

The 2016 chart year encompasses the period of 52 charts from the list dated December 6, 2015 to the list dated November 27, 2016. Peaks provided reflect the highest position reached by the final chart of the survey year. For any ties in points, a song with a higher peak is listed first, and further ties are broken by the weeks stayed in the top 40. 168 songs in total had at least one point qualify towards the year-end chart, an increase from the 165 that did so in 2015.
