ABOUT MY PERSONAL COUNTDOWN

Below is 200 songs that appeared on my countdown since January 1, 2016.  My weekly chart is based on how many times I hear a song on my iPhone or PC.  

My iTunes provides a total count of plays for each song that I listened to.  I take those numbers on a weekly basis and place each song in order based on the most plays for that week.  This determines the weekly chart that I send out each Friday.

To be able to provide my personal top songs for 2016, I tracked all songs on an Excel spreadsheet.  On a weekly basis, each song will be assigned points, which is based on the position it had reached.  The higher a song ranked, the higher the points that song will have.

The points are assigned based on what appeared on the  January 1, 2016 countdown and onward.  No additional points are given to any songs that debut in 2015 and also appeared in any of 2016 charts. (For example, Adele’s song “Hello” debut in October 2015. No points were assigned to the song from October – December 2015.  It only began when the song still appeared in all of the 2016 charts.)  

I hope you enjoy my personal selection of the best songs of 2016.  Happy New Year to everyone.
