(These songs do not entirely fit on the sections above and I will explain the reason, they are great nevertheless)

Life on the road David Brent (from comedy movie “Life on the road” this is not a proper artist as it is a character in a movie who is a musician)

Safari J. Balvin and Pharrell Williams (Latin American artists have mixed music with North American ones, and this is a very catchy song, perhaps the best one of the year)

Starboy The Weeknd and Daft Punk (Canadian R&B star The Weeknd has found a great partner on French artists Daft Punk, the electronic duo help him with a brilliant sound)

Kerala Bonobo (apart from being a great song, it has a music video that it is truly original)

Ride them on down The Rolling Stones (The Rolling Stones has released an album that are blues covers from some unknown and old artists from 1950s or 1960s, these songs are great and are blues, the music video of this song is starred by actress Kristen Stewart)

You want it darker Leonard Cohen (The farewell of poet Leonard Cohen, can scarcely be better, this song is like adding music to poetry, he has died in this 2016)

Fade Kanye West (to end up the most incredible music video of 2016, wait until the end because it is something never seen before, rapper Kanye West makes this song and find in artist Teyana Taylor the perfect person to star an incredible music video. Fade)
